Black Sand Porter is a robust, full bodied porter with pronounced bittersweet chocolate flavor and aroma from the diverse variety of malt used to brew this beer. The hops balance the the maltiness of this robust and roasty ale.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours a hazy dark chocolate colour, with a small light brown head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has big notes of deep roasted coffee, smoke and chocolate along with medium herbal hops. The flavour is medium-dry with lots of smokey, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Soft herbal hops are present as well. The finish is long and roasty-herbal. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice dry porter with nice roasted malts. 2013-08-10

Finishes very smooth with subtle coffee notes and a lot of chocolate that lingers on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Draught at Kona Brewing Company - KoKo Marina Pub, 6.3% ABV
Dark brown color, with red shades, and creamy beige head. It had some aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dust. Dry mouthfeel, with strong flavor of roasted malt and some coffee, no chocolate; the bitterness seems to come from the roastiness.
More Stout than Porter, fairly brewed anyway.
