hopdog (11168) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
On tap at the Delafield Brewhaus. Poured a darker brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Weaker aromas of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of pretty much the same with roasted malts. Thin and watery body. Very lightly bitter finish. Weak for a porter.

deyholla (9912) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Sample from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a translucent deep brown with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and chocolate as well as a realtively strong butterscotch notes. Flavor begins with roasted malts and chocolate, but finishes with strong butterscotch and sweet grains.

BVery (9400) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tap at the brewhouse. Very dark brown pour with an off-white head. Roasted coffee and chocolate malt on the nose. Silky smooth body. Bakers chocolate and roast on taste - delicious.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2007
On tap at Delafield Brewhaus. Poured very deep brown with a 2" creamy tan head.. good lookin’ beer! The aroma picked up toasted nutty notes, chocolate, and coffee.. quite dry and sweet overall. The flavor had dry sweeter chocolates, a little molasses, and dark fruits.. a dry-roasted coffee bitterness worked well in accenting the edges.. the tasty finish was quite bitter. Grainy on the palate with the body on the lighter side.. could’ve used a bit more carbonation.. kind of fell off the finish. Very solid overall.

Dark brown with a white lacey head. Light roasted aroma and flavor. Smooth, but a little thin for a porter.

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pretty much the spot-on visuals, black enough. Too thin for my liking, but drinks with an OK bitter chocolate edge, bit of an ashy, gritty feel. (#5094, 7/2/2013)

notalush (5706) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2009
Looks pretty good - dark brown, with a soapy tan head - medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel - semi-sweet vanilla and roasted malt give way to a smoky, slightly ashy finish - the ashy character gets really strong as it warms, and kind of takes over the beer - meh.

nuplastikk (5692) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Chalky brown-black. Steady beige head. Mild, subdued chocolate aroma. Leagues better than the Amber, but still a little thin and watery. Some caramel tones, specialty malts cover up the odd Delafield undertones. Dealable, about as nice as a Michelob Porter without the quality control.
