Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2014
Sample at the tap room. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with flavors of roast coffee, chocolate malt and slight hops. The finish is roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nose is chocolate with a light toasty character. Some moderate coffe as it warms. Taste is lightly bitter, almost fruity. Some sugary sweetness. Reminds me a lot of taddy porter. Solid

Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have some mild roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee, the nose and flavor are pretty standard for a porter, only negative is that its on the thin side.

popery (1360) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours black in the middle with dark brown edges. Nice khaki foam. Lots of lacing. The liquid seems cloudy, but the color makes it hard to tell, obviously. Very portery flavors - what a silly thing to write. Mild coffee, some roast, a little dark chocolate, good dose of caramel. Pretty big on cola, which is actually what I associate with porter and don’t really love. Mild vegetal note, probably from the hops. Relatively mild milk chocolate. The taste follows the aroma, which I could write for the vast majority of beers, but there’s more roast and cola flavor. It’s relatively dry. Vegetal and cola finish, which sounds bad but it’s a pleasant enough flavor. A little bit of ash and more caramel. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy but gets a touch thin in the finish. Pretty good porter but not in the same league as their hoppy beers.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee, notes of dark fruits, hints of honey, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average to smoother texture. A solid porter.

tiong (3674) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Draught @ Cellarmaker, San Francisco, California

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and licorice. Taste is smooth, slightly watery with some roasted malts and chocolate notes. Finish is smooth, weak bodied and creamy with some roastiness. A bit too light bodied, but balanced porter.

AdamJackson (2380) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Pitch black, far from oily hard to get much of a nose on this one. A touch of chocolate maybe? No where as flavorful as Kelly’s or cigarettes. Sweet chocolate with creamy milk and burnt marshmallows summarize this one. Burnt ash and ashtray sort of make it hard to finish. I can see this one evolving ad look forward to trying it again

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Draft. Blackish beer with a dark cream head. Coffee and dark chocolate aroma with light roast. Big coffee flavor with light breadiness and light caramel. Medium bodied. Coffee and caramel lingers with light chocolate.

Prufrockstar (821) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Draft at cellarmaker. Thanks to Ken for suggesting this place. Pours dark brown, opaque, tan head. Aroma is inviting - lots of chocolate, with roasty espresso notes too. Texture is perfect - light body, slick, average carbonation -- "appropriately thin." So easy put this one back. Taste is lightly sweet, with chocolate and roasted nuts; short roast finish. Overall: this is exceptional for a 4% abv porter. There’s a sad shortage of these in the world.

On tap @ Cellarmaker. Black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, and earthy hops. Decent dark chocolate and mild molasses. Mild bitterness on the palate. Light molasses sweetness. Bitter cocoa, coffee, and earthy hops. Floral hops, roast, and and a bit of licorice.
