overall, not bad. Good color, but flat head. Nice roasted/toasted malt. Could use more complexity, a very common porter flavor...

maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with a very small tan head on it. Nose is very roasty, almost to the point of seeming entirely like a chilled coffee. Taste is also quite roasty and slightly bitter, but has a really pleasant hint of chocolate coming through. Really enjoyable beer.

Davhgbrew (929) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Draft wob CAP HILL. SLIGHTLY roasty, chocolate, malty molasses aroma. Texture is slightly creamy, pronounced bitterness. Flavor is roasted coffee and black malt, bitter and drying on the tongue in the finish l. Alcohol is not noticeable, body is full throughout. Overall very enjoyable Sessionable dark ale.

tap at redhook brewpub, portsmouth. clear dark brown-reddish with a nice beige head, some retention. roasted and fruity notes, minerals, maple and dry grassy notes. average carbonation, light body, almost bland herbal finish. no flaws but a bland porter it is.

Nitro. Pours deep, dark brown with a thick pillow of creamy beige head; great retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, oats, earthy notes, light floral notes, and light toast. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting earthy hops, dark fruit esters, and light woody notes; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Genny (12) - Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Had a pint at the Redhook Brewery. A standard porter in color and taste, dark brown and medium, but was disappointed especially in the head: very thin, weak khaki. All in all, I thought it fell somewhat short of what a good porter should be.

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Pours a very dark brown. A pretty solid porter with lots of roasty malts, but lacking when it comes to body.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a thin black to brown, caramel soda sort of color. Empty malt, light roast and toast, caramel. Low carbonation, thin and roasty. Coffee and roast. Dull and lackluster. Long sad toast and roast finish.

12oz bottle from Liquor Loft. Black pour with a thin khaki head. Aroma of nuts, caramel and brown sugar. Thin palate. Tastes are roasted malts with a metallic vibe.
