brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Stale coffee, harsh roastiness, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. Not a fan of the aroma. The flavor is really no better. Quite bitter with tons of roasted malt and coffee ground flavors. Some bitter dark chocolate, a bit of earthiness, maybe some slight malty sweetness. Meh.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2006
Very dark brown colour. Full rich character is chocolatey, a bit nutty. Hop bitterness is moderate, which I find appetizing in a porter. Very full, smooth body. Goes down reaaaaallly easy. Great stuff, an old favourite.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle, 5.3%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour. Seems hazy. Small light brown head. The flavour is bready, has a mild coffee note. Low bitterness, it seems, but actually a little unpleasant.

12oz. bottle, pours dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma of strong coffee and chocolate. Flavour begins with chocolate and finishes with a lingering coffee note, and a pleasant mildly better aftertaste. Mouthful is smooth and silky. Very nice porter.

Bottle @ home shared with Thompson after he crushed and demolished me in multiple poker games. Thanks Thomas my good friend. You bastard. Anyway, dark brown color, dark red glow coming through when held into the light, medium sized light brown color that diminishes quite quickly. Aroma of malts, dark malts, mocha, dark chocolate. Taste malts, caramel, dark malts, mocha, chocolate, bitter. Medium body and carbonation.
