Sampled at the mountain sun. Drinks with a big roasted malty taste. Head is minimal and carbonation is heavy.

Brouwerij (918) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Pours a hazy brown with a half finger of tan head, decent retention and some lacing. Roasty, malty, nutty sweet smell. Mild sweet, almost fruity flavor that fades into chocolate, roasted, nutty tones. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body with a smooth mouthfeel. Tasty, rich and relatively drinkable. An awesome beer.

Tap at Pearl Street location. Pours a deep black body with a dark colored head. Dark roasted malts with a touch of espresso in the nose. Creamy and lightly carbonated. Dark chocolate malty body though a bit watery. Ok.

onceblind (4011) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2010
On tap @ Southern Sun brewpub. Darkish cola brown, with dark ruby tones where the light can shine through. Light brown fluffy head. Smells like chocolate coated hops. Interesting to smell this much hops in a porter. Some coffee and cocoa come through, but unfortunately thats all I can detect. The hops provide a mild bitterness that I’m really not used to in my porters. Awesome aroma with a ho-hum taste.

An average porter. There was aroma of coffee an fruit, with little hops. The finish was abrupt and dissapointing

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2009
On tap in Jan 09: Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and milk chocolatey malts with a touch of piny hops. Starts fairly full and sweet with nice dark chocolatey flavor and bittering hop balance before a slightly roasty bittersweet finish. A pretty good porter.
