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 (1996) - 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.
