Good standard porter, black with white head which dissipates gradually leaving decent lacing. Coffee and chocolate aromas. One to try if porters are your bag.

monk191 (806) - California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
A decent but boring porter. Pours a nice inky black. Not much of any smell. Some chocolate and nuts in the taste, but a basic porter. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rayOfBeer (663) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Tap: near black with red tint and a medium-sized almost white head. Aroma is smokey roast grain, coffee, and a slightly stale malt note. Flavor is mild bitter with lots of coffee, roast grains, a light charcoal, a nutty stale earthy note, and a light molasses sweetness running around the background. Palate is light bitter and soft sweetness with a chalky gritty feel running a bit thin. Decent flavor, not my favorite porter or beer here.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 29, 2012
A - Pours a black-brown color with a thin covering of frothy khaki colored head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some decent lace. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted and slightly burnt chocolate malt with a bit of coffee and some earthy hops/ T - Starts off with some sweet roasted chocolate malt with some lightly earthy hop. Through the middle some burnt malts come through with some more hops flavor and coffee. The finish is a mix of roasted coffee and chocolate malts with a bit of sweetness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a slightly dry and roasted finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced porter with a good mix of chocolate and coffee flavors. Could use a touch more body,

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
On tap at Triple Rock. Pours a dark brown that looks like cola at the edges with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasted coffee, some light chocolate, some light caramel, and a bit of nuttiness. The initial taste as a light sweetness. This is followed by some roasted coffee and a bit of chocolate. The finish is some bitter coffee. Light bodied. Medium carbonation. 7.4.6.4.14
