Found most, if not all, of the English Ales while on a recent stop in Monterey. Stopped off at Bottles and Bins and they had a great selection. The beer is really a nice porter. A mixed aroma of powdered chocolate, metal, dark fruit, and leather. Flavor has a nice combo of licorice, dark chocolate and light coffee bean. There is some bitterness that reminds me of molasses/burnt sugar. Probably the black patent. Very nice pour with a black body and a light tan 1" head. Tasty beer.

Draft at the Trident Club on The Naval PostGraduate School in Monterey The porter poured a dark brown color with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate and roasted malts were quickly detected. The porter had light body with soft carbonation. The finish had burnt malt and chocolate to enjoy.

On tap at the brewery in Marina. Pours an almost black brown with a foamy tan head. Nose is cola and molasses with notes of toffee. Mildly sweet taste with a nice dry finish. Medium body, decent carbonation. Good porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had on draft at the C restaurant in Monterey. Wonderful light porter. Roasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavors and a smooth porter finish. Lightly carbonated. Great with the hamburger there. However, the bottled version has a more stringent aftertaste, and not as pleasant to drink.

Dark brown with a hint of reddish color. Roasty malt with a bit of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Not too watery, not too thick. Crisp finish. Very good.

Too light, no after taste, no aroma. Wouldn’t bother with it unless you want a light, tasteless brew

MattH (635) - California, USA - APR 4, 2012
Tap. Dark brown pour. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste is vinous and roasty with a good amount of dark chocolate. Like the other beers at the brewery, the body is light and the amount of carbonation is low. Good beer.

bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Tap at the Fish Hoppers Restaurant in Monterey, CA. Pours dark brown with ruby glints and a big creamy light tan head. Nice chocolate aroma. Near med body. Flavor is chocolate, smooth burnt malt, and a light, light touch of coffee with some herby hop. Finishes nearly dry and nicely bitter.
