BlackHaddock (4052) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
17th July 2014 San Clemente Pizza Port, on my first flight of the day. Very dark brown, almost black in colour, dark beige head. The aroma was over roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate and mildly smoky. The taste very similar to the nose with some added liquorice for good measure. Seemed stronger than the advertised 5.6% ABV, very drinkable.

January 19th, 2013 - Too bad I didn’t take any notes on the where, why and how of having this beer. And my notes are succinct, too, but I think I understand why. The smell was simple and parsimonious, with a gentle scent of lightly toasted malts and cocoa powder, and the flavor is dry, like an Irish Stout. Sweet porters tend to monopolize my stash space, but I do like a dry version here and there, and this hits that particular spot. Good flavor, dry, and lots of room for pairing with food.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Big and black from the tap to the glass with a small tan head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, light toffee and dried pine needles. Taste is more bitter than sweet. Dare I say slightly off balanced. Not by much though. Mouthfeel is crisp cold and soften and smoothed out a bit as it warms, body is medium and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
