bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bomber. Pours opaque blackish brown with tan head. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Chocolate and a bit of molasses in the taste. The taste is roasty malt, chocolate, molasses, and just a little pine in the not very bitter finish. Not too complex, but not too bad.

ABUSEDGOAT (2321) - California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Dark reddish brown, large frothy light tan head that lasts fairly well. Aroma is lightly chocolately with caramel, low hops. Typical porter.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2008
22 oz. bottle - pours jet black with nice thickness and off white head that quickly fades; hops and roasted malts dominate the aromas and flavors with minor hints of chocolate thrown in; texture is slightly creamy with an odd aftertaste that is kind of grainy

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle... Poured black with a thin brown head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Silky smooth palate. Big cocoa presence with a nice malt complex. This is great little treat from the brewery. Everything I look for in a porter is exemplified in this brew.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
The best beer they had on tap. Big roasted aroma with lots of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is nicely balanced with a smooth and creamy body. Very flavorful, moreso than the stout. Dark chocolate finish lingers on the tongue.

cathcacr (634) - Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Bomber. Prominent roasty notes. I’d say "licoricey" but it’s not sweet. A sharp Porter, as sharp chedder is to cheddar, with similar back-roast underlying the main flavor. Great, lasting, light-tan head and generous lacing. Has an inkling of wateriness lurking under there.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Bomber. It smells like chocolate, and maybe a bit of roasted/toasted malt. The color is opaque brown/black, and the tan head is multi-fingered. Thin to medium bodied, with rather fizzy carbonation - no bite though. The start is coffee, followed by chocolate. It is roasted malty sweetness, and the finish is relatively dry and coffee bitter, if you can wait for awhile. Very pleasant. Impressive pour.

adrian910ss (2317) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2007
22 oz bomber. Pours a black color with a large foamy brownish beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and touch of smoke. Taste is of roasted malts, some chocolate and a slightly bitter finish. Nothing spectacular here, but not that bad either.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Poured a clear dark brown with a large tan head. Smokey and plasticy phenolic notes. When I took a deep breath it smelled like sour feet. The flavor was tart with a hint of roast. Light bodied. I am guessing this is an infection and not intended.
