Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Roast in the nose, almost bordering on an ashiness. Completely black with a receding taupe head. Instant burnt flavor followed quickly by an english floral hop flavor. Feels heavy. The roastiness seems to impart a bit of harshness; perhaps a little astringency is involved.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2010
Draught at Tubgoat. Pours very dark brown with slight tan head. The aroma is slight hops, ash, and cocoa. The flavor is mellow cocoa, a little bit of vanilla and grapefruit, and a cakey finish. Not bad.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Pours hazy brown with an off-white head. Roasty aroma with a bit of chocolate. Medium body and carbonation. Bitter roasty taste, Ashy and somewhat astringent finish.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Pours a dark almost black color with almost no head. Smells of a lot of hops and some caramel. Taste is WAY too hoppy for a porter and almost no malt taste. Aftertaste doesn’t coat that well and doesn’t last long enough.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Cloudy dark brown beer iwth a thick dark brown head. Creamy dark brown head. Chocolatey aroma. Flavour is quite sweet and chocolatey. Smooth creamy body. Soft bitterness. Towards the finish the chocolate intensifies. Nice drinkable porter.

One of my favorites at this place. It is lighter then expected for a porter, but a well balanced taste that stays with you. You will notice the cherry overtones in this porter with a chocolate finish. Nice beer, nice beer

Don't get me wrong, I like Tugboat, but I think putting the Porter on cask might have been a big mistake. Either that or they just make a thin, thin, watery porter with little flavor or character. I doubt that is the case.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Very rich and sweet plums, cherries and big time chocolate. Thick and rich with a great presentation of chocolate-covered dark fruit. mmmmm

OldGrowth (3240) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Draft: Earthy/red wine/ bakers chocolate. Brownish black.(though it was late and it wasn't well lit) Chocolate, Grapefruit, & Vineagar. Long bitter finish. Hoppy for a porter! Brewers signature. Different and tasty.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2003
Unlike the others, I thought this was awesome. Really roasty all through the beer. Slight hop sting in the finish, tastes like a high abv. Good.
