This was a pretty unimpressive porter. Not a lot of aroma or flavor. Felt pretty good going down but overall left me wanting to move on down the line.

"started out very nice, but had an ever so slight vegetal sourish aspect that took away from it, more in the flavor than aroma. otherwise, a well above average porter...big roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. thin bodied and smooth. still something i might get again. "

On tap at the brewpub. A: a very attractive ans creamy tan head leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Clear but nearly opaque dark brown. Aroma: mix of medium- and dark-malts with a touch of coffee. Flavor: Faint hop presence. Mix of medium- and dark-malts with dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. Feel: light-medium body with medium soft carbonation. O: well-crafted. Sits between a traditional and a robust porter.

Bottle. Aroma is nut and toast with a pretty simple and medium bodied and mostly sweet malty taste. Not very complex and seems a little young.

While not a big Porter drinker, I can certainly appreciate this one, especially ice cold and fresh from the tap. Almost black in color with a tan head, fairly robust, but not overpowering. Hints of chocolate malt come through, and pairs wonderfully with BBQ.

(12oz bottle courtesy of Ken) While a smokey nose prevails, roasted grains, and chocolate are also in attendance. A blackish-brown pour with a 1/2", rapidly dissipating, tan head and abundent lacing. The flavor has a moderate roastiness supported with hints of chocolate, caramel and grail. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mostly a smooth mouthfeel. Overall, I enjoyed this porter and am glad I have 5 more bottles to imbibe.

Pours a finger of tan head on a dark brown colored body. The aroma is roasted malt, cocoa and a little coffee. Mellow but nice. The taste has a roasted malt beginning, mild bitter middle and a slightly sour finish. It’s disjointed. I’m not sure the sour flavor is intended but it doesn’t really fit well. The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation. The sour flavor took this one off the rails for me.

9 July 2013, bottle. Dark ruby. Nose is rich, slightly bitter dark chocolate. Thin body and fizzy. Thin, slightly oily, chocolate malt. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Acquired from Hayduke. Thanks Ron! It poured a dark color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate and roasted malts. It had a medium body with a creamy carbonation. The taste was roasted dark malt and chocolate with some coffee that follows. Very tasty.

ericdevin (825) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle from unknown. Pours a rich, dark, color, decent amount of tan head. Aroma very nice, rich, roasted malt, some coffee. Body disappointing, not really sure what they’re going for, roasty or creamy. Finish is uninspiring and abrupt. Really wanted to like this more with the aroma, but oh well.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Very dark brown, almost black, with a khaki head. Roasted malt nose, vinous dark fruits, butter, and dark chocolate. Smokey, acidic, and just poor overall. The flavor is not very enjoyable either. Smokey and acidic, somewhat buttery, and green apple. Vinous dark fruit, watermelon Jolly Rancher, and roasted malt. Bitter finish.
