Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 From memory off tap at brewery. Roasted malt overtones of chocolate and roasted coffee, with tart nuances of a sour beer. Medium-light bodied. Well made and enjoyable. Retried a few more times throughout the month, noticing less sour profile and simply more roasted malt body... Which I enjoyed more. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Pretty black in the glass. Head is frothy almost with specks of white and brown. Creamy almost. Stale espresso beans, milk and Oreos. Very toasty throughout. Taste is very toasty. Mineral like mouthfeel. Coffee exploded in the middle and finishes long and smooth. Minor sweetness. Cocoa cookies. Very drinkable porter but very hard to drink a lot of it.

On tap at SARA... Dark brown in color, aroma of nutty malts... Flavor is rich nutty malts, light chocolate, fairly rich... Solid, nothing crazy, but a decent porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
On tap at Sante Adairius, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out light dry chocolate, and some dusty roast. Flavour is pretty much the same, with dry chocolate and roasted malt. Smooth and drinkable, but nothing overly interesting. Solid porter.

doublebock (491) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Appearance: solid black with thin beige head Aroma: Awesome whiff of fresh brewed coffee with vanilla and brown sugar Taste: Roasted coffee dominates the profile with vanilla coming through in the finish. Smooth creamy texture . Overall: Definitely a solid choice for quality coffee lovers

Nocturne (630) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at City Beer, SF. Hazy dark brown with a light brown cap. Coffee comes forth in the aroma. Dark malty taste with more coffee, light smoke and a moderately dry finish. Well put together, but the beer as a whole doesn’t quite grab me.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Growler. Mahogany pour with an onyx core and chestnut edges is accompanied by a silky latte cap. Roasted grain, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, and rye are evident in the aroma. Similar flavor with rich dark chocolate, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, honey-baked biscuit, caramel and spicy rye taking center stage. Medium mouthfeel...somewhat silky. Pretty good brew.

Sampled on tap at city beer. A really quality roasty toasty porter. Malts are toasted to perfection. A quality brew all around.
