Jado (773) - Camp Hill, - NOV 14, 2012
Dark cola-coloured body with a thinnish beige head. Aroma is light, mainly roasted malt. Taste is also fairly light, with mild coffee and deep malt flavours, followed by a dry finish. A bit thin on the palate, but not watery. It’s definitely well balanced and quite approachable. Not bad.

PorterPounder (7304) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Whistler, BC - on tap at Whistler Brewing. Dark as night black pour, thick mocha colored head with nice legs of lacing. Aroma has some nice lactic notes, a touch of licorice. Flavor has some delectable tobacco notes, some chocolate goodness, a hint of licorice in the back end. Decently thick mouthfeel. Rating #26 of 2016 vacation.

Draft - Dark fruit, raisin and chocolate. Deep maroon with a decent light brown head. Taste of raisin and cocoa with a nice sweetness. Not bad for a mild, although a touch on the rich side and abv is a bit high.
