Itís okay. Itís boring and mediocre. The mouthfeel is nice. The appearance is just right with me. The aroma and taste are not offensive, but rather bland. Itís like a lower grade of steak. Youíve got it medium-rare, but why isnít this Kobe? It seems like it should be a special ale.

vulcanmeister (171) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Poured from 12oz bottle a deep brown fluid with a medium tan head. Smell was not distinct and mouth feel was very thin. The malt came through buytt the finish was more distinct. More bitter and dry than I expected.

On tap at Fredfest 2012. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a thin dark molasses flavor with a dry finish.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2012
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, moderate frothy tannish head, sparce lacing.   Strong toasted malts, nearly roasty, slightly sweet, a bit of coffee with lots of cream.   Not a big example on the tongue.   Thin roastiness on the tongue, a bit of coffee with lots of cream and a touch of sugar.   Little hop, pale malts overall.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate... leaning on the thin side tho.   Pretty boring example overall, not robust, comes across as a an Irish Ale with a smidgen of Porter.   At least based on least years example.   ZZZZZZzzzzz.....

Zymurgeist2 (941) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 24, 2012
Pours a deep brown with red highlights. Chocolate and coffee ground aroma. Taste is bittersweet chocolate with a surprising amount of roasted malt. Ash like finish as well - seems more like a stout in some respects. Bitterness seems disjointed with the roast. Chocolate tries to restore some balance. Not bad.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - APR 16, 2012
12 oz bottle. Deep brown with a creamy light tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroam of cocoa, caramel, roasted barley and an odd faint earthy scent. Flavor is rich chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with mild carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouth feel. This is an excellent porter, had an odd scent but the flavor more than makes up for it.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2012
On tap at the brewery. dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, a little roast, and some hops. Iím not sure what was going on, but all the beers at the brewery from the tap tasted a little overhopped for the styles. Oh well. Flavor was good with some chocolate and roasted barely notes. A bit of that hop kick. Not bad.

after4ever (6062) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Draft at Indigo. Pours a grainy, murky black with a scant tan filmy head. Dark bitter chocolate nose. Creamy medium body, decent carb. Bitter chocolate mid palate with a mild roasty finish. Kind of a one trick pony.
