maxwelldeux (4325) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a near-black color with very little head on it at all. Nose is roasty with a fair amount of chocolate in there. Taste is a little bit sweet up front, but has a slightly roasty bitterness to it. Quite good for a porter, actually, and my favorite beer of theirs. Can’t believe I’m the first person in 8.5 years to rate this...

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Black with dark mahogany edges and a tannish head. Strong roast and cocoa in the nose. A snatch of mocha almost. Bitter hops as well. The flavor contains roasted malts, cocoa, and maybe some wheat malts. Just a touch of astringency. Thick body with a roasty bitter finish.

Oakes (15325) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Near black colour. Light coffeeish, slighlty nutty aroma. Smooth body. Slight roast acidity. Like a mild, sweet coffee.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Sampled draught at the Mill Creek Brewpub in Walla Walla, WA
Dark black, bright ruby red edges, tan head, little lacing. Nose of cherry, robust roast, bitter chocolate and moderate astringency. The flavor is slightly medicinal but it works with the astringency. Finishes peppery and more robust. Not bad.

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - SEP 18, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2003 Clear bown with a ring of off-white bubbles. Tons of caramel, molasss and old fashioned licorice in the aroma. Sweet with a light bitter finish. Lingering roast and licorice.
