savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 2, 2011
On tap @ Kona pub, Oahu. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some roasted malt. Flavor is lots of chocolate with a roasty bitterness. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a smooth, mouth feel. Great porter, lots of chocolate flavor with a touch of roast for balance which makes for a drinkable beer.

shadey (1910) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2011
On draft at Kona location on Oahu. Glossy black pour with a dark tan head. The aromas are mostly the roasty malts, and a touch of chocolate character. The bitter roasted flavors are the primary driver for me and make for a nice experience. It was a hot sunny day and this did the trick.

Sharp and vibrant roasty malts dominate the aroma and flavor. This one isn’t smooth, it is more about aggressive flavor. Dark color with a thin tan head.

Draft at Marina Pub. Delicious! Pours a shinny black with a nice fizzy light tan head. Aroma is dry, ashy, round, similar to Deschutes, rich smokey nutty enticing, piney hoppy, super hoppy, excellent woody-like notes. Flavor follows, delicious, dry, lightly round, ashy, piney, hoppy, nutty, bit of citrus, similar to Deschutes, bit of dry wood, black coffee towards the finish, nice bitterness in the finish, lingering ash, light sweetness, spruce. Dry but perfect sweetness in the body, soft carbonation, works so well. Love it!

Served on tap at the Marina Brewpub. The appearance is a medium deep brown, slightly translucent. The flavors and aromas are rich with roasted malts, nice roasted coffee and chocolate tones. A drying finish and after taste. Really nice robust porter.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Tap. A dark brown beer with a nice lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, with the taste being the same & having a gritty feel to it(maybe the sand in the name got me psychologically). A nice porter.
