Can at home. Pours very dark reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, mocca, and coffee. Sweet taste of roasted malts, caramel, coffee, and chocolate, bitter roasted aftertaste. Maybe a bit watery.

(Caldera Pilot Rock Porter) Can 355 ml at home, poured into a small snifter. ABV 6% Totally black in colour, good sized beige head, thick, with good retention, leaving light lacing around the glass. Aroma of liquorice, light roasted malts and chocolate, coffee. Taste is fruity, with grapes and some berries to my surprise. Quite sweet at first, then roasted malts are entering the scene, some dark chocolate as well, offering a bitterness, mild, but enough to balance things. Medium body, a bit high on the carbonation. Very good beer, the fruity notes a pleasant surprise.

The aroma is chocolate-ly with a very nice roast, also smell some coffee. In a glass itís dark-red with a bubbly head which vanishes quite quickly. Tastes smooth, slightly bitter with a roasted accent, coffee. Itís quite fizzy ad creamy, leaves a slight but nice acidic after-tast.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Bit better than average porter. Middling mouthfeel black. Good drinkability because of malt backbone.

Pours a dark brown beer with a good tan head. Smells coffee, cookie dough, roasted. Nice. I love it. Tastes roasted, coffee, chocolate and a bit milky. Nice. Average carbo, thin body and a watery sticky texture.

Can. Deep dark brown color. Malt, roast and coffee in the aroma. Malty sweet roasty flavor with caramel and coffee. Simple, straightforward but nice porter.
