Deep dark brown pour with smallish tan head. Malty from beginning to end. I've got to hand it to Kirk again, this is a fantastic beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro Draught @ San Clemente Location: This one is a VERY dark brown. There was a thin, tan head. Decent aroma, mainly consisting of chocolate. Taste is more complex, consisting of chocolate, roastiness and coffee. As a result of the nirto pour, it is very creamy.

Nice roasted, smokey malt flavors in this one. The finish is slightly dry and bitter from the hops. Black with a nice head and smooth from the nitrogen pour. A very tasty brew.

I'm now working my way through my ten beer sampler here at Pizza Port (San Clemente) and am enjoying just about every one of them. This Pier Rat Porter is a standout beer for The Port - it's mega malty and a bit sweet. Not dry like an Irish Stout. Nice beige head. What's not to love!

Dark brown with little head. Nose shows this one to have a great deal of hops residing in it. Medium light body with a flavor that reminds me a little of Stones 6th Anniversary brew. Nice drinker.
