PotjeBier (1651) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2013
Backlog, from notes. On tap @ the brewpub, 12 May 2001. Roasted malts, with a light sweet taste and no bitter in the finish, more like a porter than a stout imho.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
[At GABF 2004] A red-brown beer with a collapsing orange head. The aroma is very sweet roasted with notes of chocolate. The flavor is somewhat sour - is it because of the low alcohol content? but it has a nice roastyness and a dry woody end.

Nice tan head on the black beer. Really smells like a brewery, lots of fresh malt. Roasty malt flavor. A bit thin (seems to be a trend with some of the pizza port beers I’ve been trying).

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2004
Draught at Pizza Port (Carlsbad), California.
Fine creamy long lasting light tan head, black body. Mild roasted malty, flowery and grassy aroma. Roasted malt in the flavor as well with smoke tones. A typical Irish stout!

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
(Nitro draft: Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA) The expected dry and dark roasted flavor is certainly here, though the dark roasted flavor is fairly moderate; Bitterness is less intense than expected, but given the moderate dark roasted flavor, less bitter seems right in line; Fairly light palate for the style as well, but still with a medium body; The nose is Irish Stout all the way -- dry and dark roasted; The color isn’t black and opaque, but rather a very deep, deep ruddy brown; Creamy tan head with excellent retention as expected from a nitro tap; Head is not as thick as Guinness (can’t draw in it!), but it leaves a nice blanket of lacing

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Pours a bark brown color that can be seen through when held to a bright light. The medium head is a light tan color with good lacing. Aroma is very, very roasted and malty. Flavor is mainly roasted malt with some nice nuttiness involved. Body is very watery.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
Dark brown color, almost black with a big tan head. Roasted malt aroma and the same roasted malt taste that's a bit thin. It is nice and dry though. Nice lacing all the way through. Mellow chocolate finish.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2003
This dry stout pours with a dark brown body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is slightly sweet but mostly bitter and roasty from the roasted malt. The flavor is slightly sweet, roasty and malty with a slight smokiness. There is also a slightsourness in the background. Full bodied, slightly tingly and dry.

CaptainCougar (7130) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Typical stout aroma and a dark creamy appearance. Semi-sweet malty flavors dominate the body. Body is a little thin for the style. Roasty, dry and smooth finish rounds out this decent brew.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - MAR 20, 2003
Black as night with a big thick creamy white head. A mild smokey coffee aroma to it. Sticky sweet malt turns to chalk and then becomes dry in an earthlike sense with a few hops on the side, but barely noticable. Average.
