A robust Porter, nearly black in color, with a roast malt flavor from black and chocolate malts. The sharp bitterness from the black malt is balanced with a sweet finish from adequate caramel malt. A full-bodied beer with medium hop bitterness and low hop aroma.

Draft at Brass Tap. Pours a near pitch black color with a sturdy tan foam head. Excellent lacing along the sides of the glass which forms a solid sheet. Robust roasted coffee aroma. Nice bitter flavors of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate.

Decent, but not outstanding porter. Decent chocoaltey backbone. Moderate hop presence, but not enough depth to take it to the next level. Still worth having if available.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Very deep brown with a full beige head. A nice bitter aroma, light smoky malts, a touch of nuts, roasted, and some chocolate. Body is a bit thin, but nice. Flavor is of roasted malts, nuts, light chocolate, and a medium bitter finish. A nice porter but not outstanding.

On tap at the Coronado Brewing Company. Poured dark brown with a very small, white head that left lacing around the glass. The aroma is very faint... some burnt chocolate notes and some hops. The taste is smooth; starts out with some roasted malts, chocolate and espresso up front, and follows with a medium hop-presence. This was a decent porter, but a little more hoppy that I’m used to. I think I prefer malts to be dominant if the beer isn’t balanced... it was decent and drinkable, but not one of my favorite porters.
