Hanuta06 (381) - Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Serving: from tap at Schooner Exact Tap Room. Aroma: none detected. Appearance: small, creamy light brown, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Cola-brown body. Taste: moderately roasty/smoky, coffee-like initial flavor and finish. Average duration. Palate: medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Overall: excellent porter. Outstanding flavor. Can’t wait to drink this again.

mcberko (8699) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a dark mahogany / brown with a small tan head. Aroma reveals notes of chocolate and toasted nuts. Flavour is dry and fruity, with red fruits and light cocoa. Leaves a little something to be desired - a little too much fruitiness for a porter for me. Still, decent.

Ferris (7020) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Draft - Dark roasty notes with a hint of burnt toast. Deep jet brown with a rich light brown head. Roasty malts, Berry notes and a light burnt taste. Decent.

runaway (68) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2015
22oz bottle pours dark brown, almost black, with a quickly thinning but long lasting cream head that looks like a nitro. Aroma is of biscuit, toasty malt, chocolate. Flavor is similar but also bitter, watery coffee. Mouthfeel is thin and light, active, watery. Overall somewhat underwhelming... it was great until I actually put it in my mouth.

luttonm (2909) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Draft at Uber, Seattle. Dark, creamy brown, lacing foam. Mild body, a little under, cola and rosehip. Chocolatey, roasty coffee and tootsie roll. Nice enough

CapFlu (4725) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Thin brown head atop a deep brown body. Nose of coffee grounds, ash. Fairly raw flavour with cigarette butts, coffee, and a lasting bitterness through the finish. I find this rather tonic on the palate.

renaudnw (1) - Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2014 does not count
Overall... entirely forgettable. To start out there was little aroma, even after pouring and letting it sit for a minute the aroma was faint and unremarkable. The color was a thin medium brown reminiscent of strong tea. It tasted alright (i.e. nothing especially objectionable) but there is nothing special here. The palate was as thin and watery as the color. I expect a porter to have a little bite and good mouth feel, this had neither. It was almost like a porter made by someone that had never tasted a good one. I will not be wasting my money on this one again.

after4ever (6563) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft at SB. Pours a murky near-black with a light creamy tan head. Big sweet nose, very milk chocolatey. Toasty malts around the background. Creamy thick body, soft carb. Chocolatey, softly toasty mid palate. Finishes a bit drier than expected, but all very coherent.

douglas88 (6940) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at Baileys. Pours a pure black color with a medium tan head. A big sweet chocolate nose. The flavor is dry chocolate, roast, vanilla, ash. Good.

TimE (3974) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2014
Dark brown color. Nice brownies and nutty nose that is slightly tart. The mouth is slightly sour, light, nutty with moderate roastiness. Finishes with lingering roastiness and brownie notes. Nice stuff, though not over the top.

Solid P-ter. Not as roasty and more chocolate focused than some. Sweet then dryish finish. Smooth and round.
