nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2012
12 oz. Opaque chocolate with a small ring of bubbles.. Nose is charred coffee bean, light cocoa. Flavor is cocoa, coffee, and light berry. Medium body is chalky-dry, and a little too fizzy.

jake65 (2600) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle: Dark brown with a thin head. The description of bittersweet chocolate is very accurate, plus a little roast and yeast. Consistent through the flavor too. Good chocolate to bittersweet to roast ratio. Moderate in intensity and I found this rather easy to cruise through the whole bottle solo.

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.

Bottle. Black pour with off white head. Nutty and bittersweet chocolate aroma. Medium bodied, with some nut in the flavour. Roast and a little hop in the finish

February 2012. From bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate and spice aromas. Slightly sweet at first, but finished bitter. A bit on the lighter side.

Reid (1873) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2012
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

OldMrCrow (1808) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle.

A somewhat underwhelming porter, cocoa powder but no spark. Ninkasi usually does better than this.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
A big bodied porter. A nice roasted flavor that is not too overpowering but quality. Carbonated a lot for a porter but still a quality brew.
