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.

Draught @ Triple Rock. Malt, coffee, chocolate. Thin body for a porter, flavor doesn’t sustain, almost a chalky quality.

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

joeneugs (5248) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Pours dark brown with red highlights in the light. The aroma is nice with roasted coffee beans and hints of hops. The flavor is really nice with strong coffee and roasted malts a strongly roasted porter with a good potent hop finish that doesn’t overwhelm. Nice job.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is nearly black, at worst very dark brown, with a khaki head. S: Lots of coffee notes to this one with plenty of roast to go along with it. A decent dark chocolate aroma along with some earthy hop aromas. T: Like with the nose, there’s a solid roast and coffee character. Plenty of bitter, dark chocolate and a solid earthy hop flavor. The beer is fairly bitter, but works nicely for a roasty porter like this. M: The body is maybe a touch thin with a medium level of carbonation. D: Another solid Triple Rock beer. I really enjoyed this porter and found it very easy to drink my glass.

Ungstrup (32870) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Draft. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is dominated by notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, lending it a slight acidic edge, before the dry finish sets in.

Sample at the brewpub on 8/8/10. Darkest brown/black pour with a thick tan head. Roasty coffee nose with some chocolate and a nitro metallic character that isn’t too prevalent. Super roasty flavor with a bit of chocolate and a bitter roasty finish.
