On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma has porter roast/toast with some light chocolate. It has a medium / light body with semi-soft carbonation. The taste has semi-dry roast and some berry aspect. The finish gets drier and is cocoa heavy. Decent porter.

On draught at Alameda Brewhouse. Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and some grassy hops. Taste is roasted malt and dark chocolate with some citrus hops. Taste is just a little too bitter on the finish, yet nice overall.

Very smoky with lots of molasses, hints of juniper added a nice touch. Hadn’t tried anything like it before. Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Slight smokiness with roasted malt. Black and opaque appearance with a taupe foam. Smoke and roased woodiness quickly give way to an acidic finish. Oily and slick body. A decent porter if you are a fan of the style. bhensonb (15195) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Black with clingy tan head. Coffee aroma. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavors of coffee and mild chocolate. Juniper? Nice smooth toast malt. Finishes coffee bitter. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009
