Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2012
A clear brown porter with no head. In aroma, a strange beany chocolate, a bit off and unpleasant. In mouth, a smooth peaty chocolate with light acidity lingering, watery and boring. On tap at Farmhouse Tap and Grill, April 7, 2012.

3fourths (7858) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Bottle sample pours a dark cola brown with a thin tan head. Nose of smoke and toast, much more like a smoked bock than a porter, since I don’t see the malt character of a porter anywhere in here, but the nice thing is that the smoke character is real and natural, you can literally smell the kiln. Has a nice bite up front and a sharpness over the middle, again, like a bock. Overall it’s a delicious naturally wood smoked beer regardless of the missing or muted porter characteristics.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Dark ruby brown with a light tan head. Sesame, soy and smoked malt aroma. Body starts lightly sugary sweet and dry with plenty of roasted and somewhat smoky malt. Finishes very dry and kinda thin, but not as smooth as it could be either.
