On tap at Petrol Station. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a roasted malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet roasted malt with raisin and nice light dry finish. A good porter from Eel River.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Thirsty Bear Brewing Company, San Francisco. Rated on 13.10.2012.
Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy small head. Aroma of toasted malts, lactose and grassy hops. Flavour of roasted malts, lactose, bread and milk chocolate. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a smooth malty finish with low bitterness. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bk pour with an off-white head. Some sweet toffee malt, a bit of chocolate, and a fair amount of roast. There’s a nice bit of coffee to the nose, too. Fairly sweet flavor with a lot of toffee and chocolate maltiness. Some hints of yeast, floral, and earthy hops. A decent coffee nose and a very mild bitterness.

Not much head or nose to speak of. Taste is one of chocolate and roasted coffee on back of palate. I love porters so it's tough for me to give too low a rating.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a light brown with nearly no head. Nose was faint- this beer really had nothing going on at all. Thin and flavourless.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a pretty small head. I found this one to be rather heavy on the roasted malts, but in a very inviting way. The beer itself was extremely smooth and easy on the palate, though it kept up that robust malty and roasted character. Great porter.
