omhper (19335) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2005
Draught at the Pembroke Pines, FL location. Very dark brown. Roasty coffee aroma. Medium dry with clean hard mouthfeel. Fairly hoppy and grapefruity with long salty finish. The flavours are all there, but the malt profile/mouthfeel is hard and lifeless.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Dark amber color. Pretty nice hop and roasted malt aroma. Good body, malty, roasty, hoppy (maybe just a bit acid). Equilibrated final, with roasted barley and bitterness.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
Light brown colour. Light chewy toffee nose with a hint of raisin. Palate is Dunkin Donuts coffee and light raisin bread. This one is pretty bad.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 25, 2002
Faint roasted aroma and a slightly roasted taste. You get the feeling that there’s a good beer trying hard to get out, but what you’re left with is fairly disappointing.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2007
Draft... West Palm Beach location... Clear, almost black, ruby ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Subtle milk chocolate aroma. Malty flavor with moderate sweetness, but thin and easily balanced by the minerally, moderately bitter hops. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with restrained carbonation. Short, watery, mild chocolate finish. A bit too thin and well-balanced to really be "my kind of porter", but nicely constructed nonetheless. Hops seems to be stingy with the barley.

daknole (9057) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 16, 2008
I have had this many times on tap at Hop’s restaurants. This is an ok beer, but I liked to mix it with their red beer. By itself it is a middle of the road porter. Head doesn’t last long at all and it has a pertty thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great.
