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.

On tap at the brewery. dark brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is bitter chocolate, a little roast, and some hops. I’m 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.

It’s just another Porter, but it’s brewed right. Happy New Year, Happy Last Year.

brenn79 (1468) - 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.

pinkzambia (1427) - 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.

Smurf2055 (1394) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Three fingers off white head. Very dark color. Strong rich robust smell. Coffee overpowers the nose. Taste is a lot lighter than expected. Coffee bitterness and a bit tart. Decent, but nothing special.

Beerenberger (1366) - 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.

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

Thin malt body of lightly roasted chocolate and light grain. Dry with some light grass notes and a little pine. Bitter chocolate and some coffee as well.

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