"Looking forward to this one at the end, but it really didn’t do much to get me excited. Lighter in body than expected, with smooth but subtle chocolate notes on the nose and flavor. I’d expect the base porter to be pretty average based on this...but it was still ok."

Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty chocolate aroma with hints of caramel. Roasted malty chocolate and caramel flavor. Has a roasted malty chocolate finish.

brokensail (15635) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Black in color with a dense tan head. This is a terrible beer. Smells like nail polish remover, green apple, and acidic roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is equally terrible. Undrinkably acidic, acetone, and tons of green apple. Heavy roasted malt flavor and acrid coffee. Just awful stuff.

Tap. Pours opaque brown to black with a small brown head and decent lacing. Aroma is coffee, cocoa, vanilla. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet with a bit of bitterness. Pretty basic for the style.

I had this on draft at Monterey Coast Brewing. I thought that this was a solid porter, dark brown pour with red edges, roasty coffee & bittersweet chocolate notes in the flavor.

Braudog (6255) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Draft pint at the brewpub; Good, right down the pipe for the style. Good chocolate and coffee-based flavors. Defintiely the better of the two I tried. (#3581, June 2009)

Pretty standard Porter here. Good roasted aromas and flavors. A bit of an acidic bite. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Good but not out of the ordinary.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Has a very dark brown color with little carbonation and some tan lacing. Smell is of roasted malts/coffee. Taste is also of roasted malts/coffee/chocolate and finishes smoked/burnt. Overall the best beer from this place and a pretty good porter.
