riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Dark roasted grains and light bittersweet chocolate on the nose. Pours dark brown almost black with a tan head. The flavor is that of roasted husky grains, a little coffee, and dark bittersweet chocolate. Dry roasty finish. Somewhat one dimensional but as usual well done. Good drinkability.

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2012
12 oz bottle bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Pours almost opaque black with reddish tints; has a thin beige head that holds for a couple of minutes. Aroma is faintly bready--thatís all Iím getting. Taste is bittersweet--the bitterness is much more prominent than the Big Sky Bobo I rated last night, which was sweeter, but this is Ninkasi, after all. Has a nice roasty flavor. Carbonation is average and the mouthfeel is creamy. Not as good as Bobo, but this is good.

pinkzambia (1461) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle: dark brown with a tan head. Eggy aroma as well as charcoal. Malty flavors but not much in the flavor. Expected more. Thin finish.

Livid (49) - - JAN 10, 2012
22oz. bottle. Pours almost midnight black, tan head that hangs around. Has a nice "dry" roasty aroma, slightly sweet smell. Roasty flavor, slightly dry. Hints of chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied. Mildly bitter at first, but the bitter afterglow gets harsh as it lingers. A passable porter, but probably not something I would pick up again.

johnnyoski (434) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle. Near black color with a thin tan head. Sweet aromas of chocolate and caramel with some coffee bitterness. Nice roasted taste. Dark chocolate and black licorice flavors with a soft bitter finish. Dry texture with soft carbonation. Nothing spectacular abou this porter but it is easy drinking.

Black in color with a tan, bubbly head. Caramel and maple syrup are in the aroma. Reeses peanut butter cup is the first thing i taste. Watery texture with an abrupt finish. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. Overall average beer.

brenn79 (1512) - Idaho, USA - JAN 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with a nice creamy tan two finger head. The aroma is chocolate malts, it smells like bakers chocolate. The taste is roasted chocolate malt, robust, fairly creamy, mild hops. This does not push any boundaries whatsoever, leaving the term renewale kind of perplexing, but it is good, a straightforward porter.

Itís just another Porter, but itís brewed right. Happy New Year, Happy Last Year.

22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer,S.Salem. $3.79 Very dark coloured porter almost black , large creamy,thick tan head. aromas of toasted cereal,hay, slight cocoa. MM strange liquorice root flavours, then treacle and nuts..dark coffee bitterness in the back.. i like it! palate was just fine for style maybe even a bit thicker than usual Going against the grain but i liked this..especially thebliquorice/treacle taste

Full disclaimer ahead of time. I have a special place in my heart for ninkasi.. Their support of mnt. Bike Or won me over. Look- black as can be. Very little head and it was gone within seconds. No activity. I mean like not one bubble. Smell not there. No activity so that didnít bring any smell to the top. Taste- slight bitter with a little sour and coffee. Burnt coffee. Little chile bite on it as well which I didnít expect. Feel. Odd feeling of spice. Overall. Not for me. I wonít finish this 12 oz bottle
