Had this on tap in Plymouth, for what it is, it was a solid beer, basically as advertised, a hoppy porter, not sure I loved the mixing of the flavors, pretty average for me.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a very large sized, frothy, off white head. Chunky lacing left on the glass. Aromas of pine, floral, some roastiness, and licorice. Tastes of lighter roast, chocolate, some pine, and fruity.

jonas (5692) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle. Black, low brown head. Cascade, clementine aroma. Medium to light body, quite hoppy, pine, citrus, extreme but not soapy, metallic pine finish.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 23, 2010
12oz Bottle. Minty, leafy rich hop aroma, touched with a bit of darker malts. Pours dark black-brown, with a nice soapy head in coffee and cream. Flavors combine a papaya-like, lemony, zesty hop flavor with mild dark brown ale-like malts, a touch of roast, chocolate, and caramel. The bittering hop flavor and bitterness gets a little tangy and metallic for me, clashing a touch with roast, which itself, gets a little ashy, making the finish on this beer a little coarse.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2010
In short: A roasted and fruity black IPA with an annoying soap character. Meh.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase
The look: Black body topped by a medium beige head with low retention
In long: The hoppy nose has a strange perfumy signature as well a band-aid notes. Taste has plenty of dark fruits with light notes of chocolate. The roasted level is in the medium range for the style. Medium bitterness. There is something rather soapy about the whole thing. I’m usually a sucker for this style but this one didn’t do it me. A Clown Shoes that tasted funny.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle… Pours black with a large, creamy, khaki head. Fantastic retention. The nose offers ash, black malt, espresso and cocoa nibs with a suggestion of hempen bong water. Medium to full-bodied with zippy carbonation. Well-balanced. Very roasty and malty with boatloads of accompanying burnt, carbonaceous bitterness. Finishes acrid, singed and moderately bitter. Kudos to growler for providing the bottle!

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear brown body with a good sized light brown fizzy head that had decent retention. Moderately hoppy nose with a fairly hefty dose of band aids. Some darker malts, but not chocolaty at all. Some slight roast. The flavor is a bit off with some light band aids and some light roast. Light to moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, they missed the mark with this one.

MaBeer1972 (1342) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottled version. Pours out jet black with a big coffee head. Foam almost looks like a root beer float. Aroma is pungent floral and spice. Flavor is extremely roasty with a big sticky bitter biting finish. Like drinking cheap black coffee straight up. Not my thing at all.
