Draught @ Toronado, San Francisco.
Pours a black colour with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, earth and subtle nuttiness. Flavour of rich roasted malts, grassy hops, nuts and raisins. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a rich malty finish with some roastiness. Rich and good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solidly good beer that doesn’t suck, but isn’t great. Porter and lager, together. Dark, interesting, yet light and intended to be ignored. This is interesting in its own right. Notes of cocoa, grain, and nuts with some subdued citrus and a twinge of sourness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Near lack pour with tan head that leaves some nice lace. Roasted grain dominates the nose with notes of coffee and something green. Lots of light coffee on the palate with a hint of chocolate and something slightly hoppy. Tasty and easy going. A good session dark.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Toronado, San Francisco
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, some hops and earthy notes. Taste is slightly roasty with some bitterness and hints of chocolate. Finish is malty and bitter. Feels quite light bodied, but still quite complex. Well balanced, enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, Hopmonk Tavern, Sonoma, CA, 14/08/12. Big, chilled, beige-piled weizen of dark ruby beer. Neopolitan ice cream, blueberry and fag (cigarette) ash aroma. Smoky with a teasing interplay of pistachio, blueberry ice cream, black chocolate, coffee and blackcurrant. And a sprinkle more ash. Huge-bodied and conditioned at the strength-amazed to find it weighs in at a paltry 5%. Really, really nice.

This beer has a very dark Black look with a Hint of copper undertones. It pours with a very thin wispy cream colored head. It tastes of coffee and is rather light tasting. Overall a solid good tasting beer.

On tap at the Toronado. Aroma and flavor of light roast and cocoa. Very smooth and sharp...possibly one of the best palates I've ever had on a beer. Very good.
