This lip-smacking dark ale is mellow and malty. The aroma is reminiscent of bittersweet dark chocolate and the caramel and roast malt flavors are exceptionally smooth. Medium bodied, with a slightly sweet edge but a dry finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8010) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours deep and dark with mocha head. The aroma seems earthy at first then burnt, roasty, a bit of smoke and chocolate. The taste is both good and yum with roast to burnt malts to go along with a layer of earthiness to start. Midway some chocolate surfaces. Toward the finish everything comes together in harmony and leaves a lingering chocolate, a bit of burnt malts and just a hint of smoke into the after taste. Very tasty indeed.

hayduke (4485) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
This poured from the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown that let in no light and raised a light brown head with good retention and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate, coffee, and ripe fruit. Soft creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is heavy on the coffee and the finish is dry. A very decent porter.

On tap at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Color was dark brown iwth a light brown head. Aroma was good, with roasted malt, caramel and vanilla. Flavor was really nice for the style. Caramel, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and cocoa. A bit of chalk, but it wasn’t detracting. Good beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Pours dark brown with a hint of red and a medium sized white head. Nice chocolaty malt aroma with a similar flavor and a solid mouthfeel. Not the best porter in the world, but it’s hard to mess up this style and it was a solid enough offering.
