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

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--that’s all I’m 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.

pours a dark brown with a medium size khaki head and very good lacing. smell is faint, cocoa, malt, and a little nutty. taste is dry yet creamy, bakers chocolate, malt, and a few hops. ends smooth with a touch of sourness.

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.

Dark black. Tastes like chocolate milk...with a hint of hops. Creamy. Amazing porter.

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.

rmussman (1701) - 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.

Zymurgeist2 (1650) - 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.

Boringgggg. Decent chocolate aroma but other than that its a flat chalky, bittersweet forgettable beer.

Beerenberger (1591) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Aroma is malt forward with notes of chocolate and roasted malts. Pours an almost black with a dark tan head and excellent lacing. After the nose, the taste was underwhelming. A mild roasted taste and then a coffee finish and aftertaste. Medium-light bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, bland, almost no tastevat all…6will not buy again.
