On tap @ Pizza Port San Clemente poured a transluscent brownish black with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and some roastiness. Palate was medium bodied, creamy and smooth. Flavors of chocolate, vanilla and light coffee with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2006
Nose is huge roastiness with mild coffee and some chocolate notes. Very light brown with a lazy head. Hoppy with a lot of malts with the coffee and chocalte coming through. Simple bitter finish.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 19, 2006
Tap @ brewery. Dark, ruby/walnut body with a light tan head. Webby lace with splotches. Yeast/bread on the aroma, dark malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate. Mouth is medium with tons of super-soft carbonation (like a nitro), lightly dry. Flavor is plastic, candy, sugar, dust, lightly roasty, touch sour dough in the finish, touch bitter, coffee, light alcohol. Interesting amalgamation of flavors, but I drank it and even enjoyed it. Very unique. Great mouth.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Very dark, but not quite black body with a light tan, creamy head. Light aromas of blacky cherry, coffee, caramel, and the roasted malt. Creamy, but almost imperial-esque flavor qualities. Very toasty with a touch of vanilla at the finish. Very nice brew.

On tap @ Solana Beach location. Is this a porter or a stout. Either way, a very drinkable, well balanced beer. Looks nice in the glass too.

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2005
GABF 2005: Brown hue with an okay head. The aroma has notes of walnut, caramel, light grassy and piney hops, coffee. The taste is quite honestly standard stuff, nutty and some apple notes on top of caramel and bready malts finishing with hoppy bitterness. An okay porter but not one of Pizza Port’s better offering I have enjoyed.

JMerritt (1793) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2005
GABF 2005. Dark orangeish brown with a medium-sized light brown head. Chocolate roast aroma with a light chicory roast flavor, a decent amount of floral hops and a touch of peaty smoke. Pretty solid.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Pour rich amber with a thin tan head...smell is piney and soapy...taste is really just hoppy...I don’t get this one either...

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Clearish deep brown hue mounted by a light brown head. Rather straightforward coffee/chocolate roasted malts nose. Heavily malty, heavily hoppy(dead leaves, flowers), but not necessarily the tastiest components which makes me think that from anyone else, this would be considered a middle of the pack porter. There is simply not much to say about any fruitiness or flavour evolution, though I must recognize the velvety character of the medium body.
