brokensail (9943) - 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.

Beerenberger (1273) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014
(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.

Fatehunter (1092) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2013
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 (591) - 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.

Nsanders (427) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Deep brown body with a light brown head. Sweet, dark fruit, koolaid aromas, not really malty or chocolatey like box mentions. The flavor and aroma doesn’t seem fitting for a porter. Lighter bodied, watery texture. This may be my least favorite porter.

Bottle. Nice dark brown pour with a soapy brown head. Coffee and cocoa on the aroma. Palate is a bit thin. Taste is roasted malts, hint of fruit, and a hint of cocoa.
