Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft at college inn. Pours dark with minimal head. Roast on the nose, with a sort of milky quality - like coffee with cream and a dash of cocoa powder. Lightly sweet, with moderately roasty bitter finish. Goes down real smooth. I donít drink many porters these days, but it was really one of my gateway styles, and always a nice standby. Iím getting old and nostalgic I guess, but the college inn with friends visiting from out of town reminds me of many a Monday night with friends, nachos, and a nice porter or two to help the time pass much too quickly.

maxwelldeux (3664) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draught in a flight at the MLT brewpub. Pours a near black color, as it should. Nose is light and slightly roasty. Taste is similar, with some roasting in there, as well as some coffee. Decent drink, but doesnít seem overly complex.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Pour with the appearance of root beer with a sixteenth inch of beige head. Thick creamy mouthfeel, finish a nice amount of chalky. Nothing in the way of aroma on this beer. Taste is very balanced, malt ball maltiness with chocolate and hop bitterness that comes across sandy/salty, and astringent on finish. Average porter thatís easy drinking and refreshing.

luttonm (2222) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at Mountlake Terrace brewpub. Brown-black, small foam. Great smoky, leather, bacon sip. Creamy sweetness but rising tart smoke and dry meat. Soy/jerky. Not perfectly refined but unusually nice flavors. Dry aroma. Really a nice beer, best here tonight.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Diamond Knot. Dark brown with a creamy head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is rich and malty with lots of chocolate and roasted coffee. Medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Solid porter, rich and full flavored without being sweet.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is light roasts and chocolate with hints of caramel and earth. Flavor has a bit more dark chocolate and a moderate, balanced roast. Touches of caramel and a light earthiness towards the end as the chocolate comes out a bit more and this finishes dry, somewhat roasty, and lightly bitter with a nice chocolate note. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a pretty tasty, quaffable porter. Nice beer to go with the peanuts I can throw on the floor.

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Dark brown color, almost black, with beige head. Light aroma of roasted malts. Good structure, with pleasant flavor of dark chocolate and roasted malts (just a bit too roasty for me), at least not too dry; correct bitterness.
Leaning a bit near Stouts, but quite good.

med brown color, chocolate brownies, a touch of molasses. Rounded smooth mouth. Lingering chocolately finish. Excellent example of a porter

Roasted malts on the nose, light patent notes, hints of chocolate. Lightly sweet. Pours dark brown, more or less black with a thin beige head. Roasted malts throughout, some chocolate, hints of sweetness, a little burnt. Light bitterness in the finish. Well balanced, well done house porter.
