Draft at the Moon River Brew Pub, poured adark brown with a tan head that quickly left the scene, roasted malt aroma, watery mouyth feel, metallic alcohol on the finish, with very light carbonation, expected a better beer than this when it arrived at the table. Looks better than it tastes.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 9, 2009
Medium-dark brown. Nice chocolate nose with light nuts. Smooth, chocolate taste. Full body. Nice bit of toast dries out the finish a bit.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Nearly opaque black-brown. Slight diacetyl in aroma and also slight huskiness. Some chocolate. Low carbonation. Rich roasted chocolate malt lingers on the tongue. Coffee flavors predominate but the huskiness detracts.

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2009
Decent porter, but another boring beer from mooon river. Not watery, which was nice, but not creamy and full bodied either. Lightly dry taste and finish. Light coffee and nut taste. Could have used something else in the taste.
