LarryBeast (491) - - JUN 27, 2014
355ml bottle. Hadn’t had this in a long time and (as seems to happen) I didn’t love it quite as much this time around. Smoky burnt malt, molasses, cocoa, coffee, tin can, blend of west coast hops. Full-bodied, slick and earthy with great bitterness.

Hammy78 (728) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, white head that dies down fast and leaves a wall of lace. Nose is fresh and nutty, touch of hops. Tastes malty like a stout, hop bitter, a little chalky on the mouthfeel.

simonblaine (273) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours black, frothy head. Aroma of malt, coffee, chocolate. Taste is much the same, lovely strong beer full of flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RumRunner101 (751) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Deep brown pour with tan head and good lacing throughout. Aroma is charred malts and citrus hops. flavour has coffee, toast, and is packed full with PNW hops. Lingering pine bitterness.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Re-rate: Beer 19 in the Phillips Snowcase - no changes to description or scores. 341ml bottle from the Phillips HopBox mix pack from Coop. Pours a darker coffee brown with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is a violent clash between toasted malt, and citrus, grainy hops. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant coffee, nut brown sweetness. But then again, I love black "pale" ales.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a fizzy light brown head. The nose is nice bright citrusy hops, dry chocolate malt, and a bit of light roast. The flavor is brightly hoppy with a fairly hefty bitterness over a dry chocolate malt base. Lingering citrusy bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft gently carbonation. A really nice hoppy Porter. Second best beer on that that day.

Alanthebeerguy (144) - - AUG 31, 2013
Pours dark coffee color. Nose has coffee and malt, chocolate. Taste is predominate the burnt coffee, chocolate. Malty. Finishes sweet. Think of a more intense Guiness with higher carbonation. Not bad for an evening sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GenkiGonzo (221) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle. Very nice coffee notes on the nose, slight lacing. Quite weak hoppy notes. Good overall taste, coffee, hops, burnt notes.

Moxen (5) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013 does not count
One of my favorite beers, first had this in a growler and then later in a hopbox. Earthy, coffee taste with a punch of cascadia hops. Really good on a rainy night on the island.

A great overall brew. Strong malt background balanced with a nice solid hop bite. A great offering from Phillips.
