Ibrew2or3 (7050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 18, 2009
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours dark amber with infra red edges and thin tan head. The moderate aroma emits roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and mild oxidation notes. The taste has a brief pulse of black strap molasses followed by earthiness, highly roasted to burnt malts and some coffee grounds. Before the coffee really picks up steam I get mild notes of chocolate malts and the faintest oxidation note. Very light astringency leaves this beer more neutral than dry.

Great carbonation, sits pretty high on the bitter scale. Strikes an odd balance of dryness and bitterness, but still works. The aftertaste lingers and is a bit funky.

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 24, 2008
On cask @ Pizza Port real ale festival: Was poured in a tiny sample since it was a dwindling supply left but still maintained a nice and pleasant serving of head on top of a dark brown porter. The nose was mild and hard for me to detect under my circumstances but I would give it the benefit of the doubt and say it was good enough to pass the test. However, the flavor was average with a dark malt taste and nothing extra than that. Must be more readily available for me to retry and change my mind about.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Quite black, with no head. Aroma slightly hoppy, but rather indistinct. Flavor was well balanced between roasts and hops, but also slightly tart. Some sips were watery, as others have noticed, but this may be due to the fact that its alcohol content is lower than those of the other beers I tasted...

asedzie (611) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Aroma is coffee-like, with grainy overtones. Flavor is very mild, with some good bitterness. Palate was not very full, even a little watery.
