On draft at the source. Reddish brown. 1 finger tan head. Cold brew coffee aroma. Hershey chocolate. Taste is. Well. It’s very thin. Fleeting flavor. Cocoa is there. A little maple and bark. Weak offering.

SONOFWODEN (22) - New York, USA - APR 11, 2016
This was my first Porter. Honestly, Torpedo Extra IPA was so good that I was hoping for a repeat with this Porter; however, it came up short. It was "ok" -- not as much body or flavor as I expected, especially in comparison to Founders Porter which was very good.

Gurthnar (4986) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 10, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour, some floaties, low short lasting head. Aroma moderately hoppy, resiny and grassy. Also almost moderately malty with mostly coffeeish roast. Moderate fruity esters from the fermentation. Taste is well balanced. Moderate bitterness, mostly coming from hops. Roastiness kept below medium, but still noticeable. Moderate sweetness with notes of dried fruits, general yeasty fruitiness. Finish is balanced, moreish. Light to moderate hops flavour, resiny, grassy. Light heavy body, a very light alcoholic warmth - pleasant level. Overall very drinkable, yet intense and rich. Moderate carbonation. Excellent.

Fules (787) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 7, 2016
Hatalmas, tömör, tartós hab, fekete szín. Pörkölt malátás, édes-savanykás illat. Feketecsokis, pörkölt malátás ízek, pici savanyúval. Utóíze nem túl markáns pörkölt malátás, de sokáig tart. Jól kiegyensúlyozott sör, típusának mintadarabja. Közepesen testes.

rami_pl (1924) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 2, 2016
butelka, warka rozlana 10/13/15. jasna, niebrzydka piana, fajnie zostaje na szkle, samo piwo baaardzo ciemny bursztyn, w szkle ciemny braz. Aromaty niezbyt intensywne, troche czekoladowo-kawowych, troche zboze, troche wisnie. w ustach lekkie, prawie ze wodniste, kwaskowate, powtorka z aromatow, nieco popiolowe... taki sredniak, ale mily sredniak

It is a regular porter, not so heavy, easy to drink. The carbonation is relatevely low, black and brown color and thin foam and brown. At the noise, I am a bit wrong but it is smelling grape sugar or a kind of coca-cola.The taste at the mouth is light roasted malt, few hop, a bit watery. I bought this beer at amstein and I drank it at Bonfol.

Originally rated on 5/23/08. I am looking at a coffee black, fully carbonated, mid tan thick headed porter. The smell of roasted malt and toffee is slightly sweet. Flavor mirrors the smell, nice and smooth going down, good finish. Darn good porter from Sierra Nevada
