Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Brown color with amber highlight and nice small stable tan head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate, liquorice, and bitter finish. Low carbonation (again: hand pump?). An excellent Porter - sweet without being sweet, but still sorta bitter and dry.

Beerman6686 (5615) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted malt and light dark.chocolate. Flavor was fairly dry, almost like a London Porter, but lacking chocolate character.

slowrunner77 (7852) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
"a basic but tastier than average porter. aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and smoke. chocolate malt and smoke in the flavor and finish. a touch thin, but not bad. quite smooth and highly drinkable. 2014-body better than remembered. Kicked the stout’s behind."

A bit of a chalky coffee aftertaste. Chocolate notes on the start. Not a stupendous porter.
