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.

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,

jazz88 (2558) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Tap. Very dark brown with a laced light brown head. Strong roasted coffee on a slightly grainy body which makes it rich and robust. The aroma is roasted but does not tip off the intense coffee flavors.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, 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.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black with a small, dense and tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, light chocolate/coffee accent. Bitter and roasted flavoured, mild acidity from the roasted flavours. Creamy mouthfeel. Bitter and roasted finish.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2010
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.

SDalkoholic (2156) - 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.
