Romanak is the president of the Kona Coast Barley Boys homebrew club in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii's Big Island. 20 barrels were brewed in January 2005. "Positively Porter" is a dark, smooth beer, strong in roasted malt flavor and aroma with roasted coffee overtones and a slight taste of ripe-figs, a character imparted by the extra special malt used in the brew.

Dark chocolate aroma with coffee notes. Nice. Completely opaque. Looks like dark coffee. Tan head. Mostly no lace. Initial mouthfeel explodes on the palate. Nice smooth roasted malt flavor with bittersweet chocolate notes. Not my favorite porter but good. A little dry and sour at the finish.
