travita (4560) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2009 Black with a lovely tan head. Smell is exactly what I would expect from porter with definte coffee overtones. Taste is pleasant with some bitterness from the malts. Brusells lace is evident and the beer a more quality look. Update 12/9/2009 cask rating from Gingerman in Plano. Much more coffee in the cask version like an early morning wake up call from an iced coffee. Smooth and good.

This is a great one... wish it was year-round and more widely available in bottles (for aging). Great roasted coffee malt nose and flavor. Dry, malty, and dark... three of my favorite beer adjectives. On tap.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2008 10/12/07 tap. Burning coffee bean aroma. Black color with nice lacing. Not too heavy or too watery, Perfectly smooth. It leaves this rich, yet very clean taste in the mouth. Flavor is developed but not too overdone as to where you can’t drink more than a couple sips. I highly recommend it!

This was just what I wanted it to be. Had on tap at the draught house.
Pours a rich opaque black with a small tan head. Smell is beautiful. Perfectly roasted malt, mild but well roasted coffee beans, bittersweet to dark chocolately goodness. Smooth in the mouth, and carbonated nicely to cut into the slightly thick mouthfeel and a deliciously roasted coffee/ chocolate/ caramel bittersweet rich flavor about it. A touch on the sweeter side of porters which I like, but not cloying at all. Bottle this stuff already, so I can share the love!

Pours a dark dark brown into the glass with minimal head. Aroma is rich and full of chocolaty coffee notes. I was surprised at how minimal the coffee flavor is in the taste. Didn’t seem too much different from any other porter in the coffee taste. That being said, I loved it.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - APR 10, 2007
Black color with tan head. Aroma is espresso, chocolate, caramel, and light smoke. Taste is pretty cold coffee oriented, with milk chocolate, nice hop content in the background. Good Porter for sure.

Draught @ Opal Divines. Deep brown, almost black. Smells like coffee, tastes like black coffee, with a side of dark chocolate. Lighter than the appearance suggests; pretty thin. Not bad--I drank one and that was enough.
