Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
Draught @ Tampa Bay Brewing Co, Ybor City, FL: Pours red/brown, bubbly off-white head. Lots of black licorice and roast coffee in the aroma, both of which came firing through in the taste. Hints of chocolate balance a good and true-to-style light tasting porter. Nice work.

Had on tap at the brewpub. Some nice chocolate and coffee but a noticeable sour kick that bugs me. Nice aftertaste on the exhale.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2009
POurs deep brown with notes of malt on the nose. Consistency is very stout like but with a little bit of lightness. The mouthfeel gives a nice cocoa and nut like ending and wrapped around some hop like flavors.

gkost (1711) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Pours brown. Nose is toasted malt, burnt roast, citrus hops, some pine notes, mild wood notes. Flavor is much the same as the nose. Very easy drinking porter. One of my favorites at TBBC.

On tap at TBBC. Dark brown pour, tan head. Roasty, malty nose and flavor sith a soft mouthfeel. Refreshing. A solid but unexceptional porter.

jgb9348 (4635) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Deep brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Medium-bodied; Nice & fresh tasting with a light flavour of nuts, roasted malt and some coffee & chocolate. Overall, a decent beer - nothing special nor horrible. I sampled this beer on draught at Tampa Bay Brewing Company’s Brewpub in Tampa (Ybor City), Florida on 10 November 2007.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 Sample at brewpub. Pours a deep dark brown almost black with a nice head. Aroma is nutty, light roast burnt toast- nutty and chocolate with light phenols. Good flavor of dark chocolate, nuts, almond, big sweet toasted malts, light caramel, modest fruity esters and a slight phenolic thing going on as it warms. Pretty good.
