3fourths (9055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Dark brown body with a small off-white head. Moderately roast-forward malty aroma, your typical chocolate / coffee ground / cola with touches of black plum and roast. Maaaaybe some nuttiness from the walnuts but could just as easily be from the malt. Peppercorn phenols and silty / pasty yeast texture. Medium body, medium to low sweetness, moderately bitter for the body. Pretty much what I expected from the house yeast strain fermenting a porter grain bill: malty and yeasty but without a lot of depth.

Draft pour pint at the Collective. Pours black with a tan cola fizz head. Soft aroma of sweet malts. Chocolate and malt up front. No obvious walnut for me, but I suppose it’s a little nutty late in the palate. Easy drinking and quite tasty.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 On tap at Alibi Room. Sour dark fruits in the aroma and taste. Not a porter, closer to black Saisons.

Tap at the taproom. Dark - black - pour with a white head. Cool looking. Yeast, roasted grain, and mild citrus notes. Nice combo, very interesting brew.

A little one dimensional but still a very pleasant beer. Lightly dry and nutty with some underlying darker roast and fruitiness. Everything is subtly done."

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy head. Mild aroma of roasted malts. smooth and dry mouthfeel, mild roasted malt flavor, light minty touch, correct bitterness, dry final, also a bit weak; no walnuts, almost no chocolate malt.
Decent beer, but not responding to expectations, and can’t really see the direction here.

CapFlu (5100) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Thin beige head and deep brown body. Nutty aroma. Flavour is rather... Uh... "Common". Fairly cookie cutter nut brown.
