Dark brown/black with tan head. Lacing throughout. Aroma has some nuts, chocolate, roasted malt, some alcohol. Flavor has burnt chocolate, somewhat sweet. Hazelnut maybe. Creamy finish and a very nice tartness that makes you pucker. Loses some points overall because of relative high alcohol.

Pours black in color with a light tan head. Nice complex aroma of roasted malts, coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Flavor was sweet and rich with bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Nicely balanced with a roasted malt finish. Very nice

Pretty damn good porter. I was somewhat expecting something more British or European, but this ended up tasting almost like a Black Marlin porter. Delicious, easy to drink and nice label. Thanks Naven! Good call on that one.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 12, 2007
16.9 oz bottle, purchased at Holiday wine cellar. A damn fine porter. Dark, rich black color. Aroma and flavor are of espresso coffee. Actually, this tasted like an iced espresso. The finish was very hoppy. Actually, the hops reminded me of many of the west coast beers. Possibly Centennial hops. Awesome.

Pours a three-finger brown head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Black as midnight. Slight hoppy nose. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Flavor is roasted/bitter coffee with a slight smoky finish. $6.00 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Aroma of chocolate and fruit. Taste commensurate with aroma with dark malt sweetness and a dry sweet/sour finish.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle, thanks to shigadeyo. This was a huge gusher, but what was left pours opaque blackish brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, nuts, vanilla. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation. Tastes of dark chocolate, nuts, vanilla, molasses and coffee. Bittersweet espresso and tobacco finish. Seems more like a dry stout than a porter.
