This beer has a very sweet flavor to it, and a good thick look, somewhat like the dense head that froths off a Guiness. There isnít much hop aroma, but there is a fairly strong bitter flavor that is offset by the sweetness of chocolate/coffee grain choices. A very fullfilling and robust beer with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Very nice!

Firkin pour at the brew pub. Pitch black with a light to almost no head.m rum and coconut do well together. The roastiness of the porter come through as well.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Draught at Maritime Pacific. 12 oz. pour. Nice opaque black appearance. The head is thin an wispy. Very nice looking porter, but nothing mind blowing. Aroma is a lot of roast with a very subtle malt, maybe chocolate, aroma. The aroma doesnít have much going for it. Slight pine bitterness balances stuff out decently. Not really any smoke coming from this, but oh well. Flavor is roast, and a bit of malt sweetness, again, Iím getting a very subtle chocolate flavor there, as well. A touch of smoke mixes well with the roast. This is very dry and gritty, Iím thinking of this along the lines of a dry stout, but obviously, I know this is a porter. Too dry for me, but other than that, this is a solid beer.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-03. Black body with a modest creamy tan head that fades and leaves a nice thick lace. 4+ Modest flavour is lightly roasty, dark malt with light dusty cocoa character, goes dry in the finish and leaves a lingering dry roast and modest bitterness. 6+ Muted aroma is perhaps not helped by the nitro pour, very light dry dusty roast. Average palate is light for a porter and surprisingly unhelped by the nitro. Meh, ok. On tap at Jolly Roger Taproom, Seattle

[3099-20100703] Nitro. Rich chocolate-infused roast malt aroma has some wood notes. Black body has a long-lasting creamy light tan head and some lacing. Woody rich chocolate-tinted roast flavour. Medium-full body. Good roast, quite pleasant to try.
