Syzzer (596) - Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2011
The malts in this porter resemble a slightly more burnt version of Guinness Stout. Smooth, very dark and light carbonation

12 oz bottle
Aroma: fruity hops, hint of roasted/chocolate malt
Taste: fruity hops/yeast, slight chocolate
I did not find anything wrong with this beer, but there was not any reason to go back for more.

michaelinwa (612) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Pours dark with an almost nonexistent aroma. Initial taste is roasty malt, but it’s fairly subtle. Finish is dry. It’s just too uninteresting for my palate. I would not buy this one again.

PapaSkeetSkeet (861) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Smells of pine and dark chocolate, oh yeah! Dark brown with a light-brown head. Medium body with a short-lived carbonation bite. Yowza! Flavor is chocolate, light roast, pine, leaf, a hint of nutmeg spice. Good.

Sledutah (5101) - Utah, USA - OCT 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2011 12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Appearance: Pours a clear dark brown with a small beige head and light spotty lacing
Aroma: Toasted malts, roasted coffee and chocolate
Taste: Toasted malts, roasted coffee, grainy, sweet caramel with a light bitterness in the finish
A nice, easy drinking porter.

bpreo (1749) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2011
A Porter from Portland disguised as a Winter Ale. Too bad it’s only mid-October. Ah hell, it’s my 800th beer rating, Merry Christmas!

Nikiel (878) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle with Carla. Pours deep brown/red with fizzy dark red/brown foam. Smells like sweet corn cereal. Mouth-feel is very thin. Tastes of molasses and allspice with somewhat sour alcohol.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
cblado (247) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2011
22 oz bomber. Pours a deep, dark brown color. Slight tan head. Aroma is very slight, mostly a toasted malt aroma. Flavor is also very subtle, with bitter coffee notes against a background of toasted malt. The thing that really caught my attention right away was the palate. This is really one of the fizziest porters I’ve had. Definitey unexpected.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 12, 2011
bottle from superdave on 1/31/11. rootbeer-ish porter color with some spots of foam left from the tan head. it smells and tastes of roast, lactose, choco, grass, spice and floral hops. the flavor has a touch of typical porter sourness on the finish. plain but solid. it is a touch thin but i’d crush a ton of ’em. 6/3/6/3/14
