On tap at Wet Dog Cafe, pours a deep dark reddish brown / black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of oats, light toasted malt and roasted barley. Flavour is robust, with roasted barley, dark cocoa, and light coffee. Robust and wonderfully balanced. This is really well-done. Excellent. bpreo (2985) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Mom says: You can taste the smokiness and chocolate. A hint of both. Sampled at the downtown Astoria tap room. beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Black color with tannish head. Aroma is chocolate. Mild coffee. Taste is light bodied, chocolate, dark chocolate, pretty tasty. Pretty smokey. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
The beer is nearly black with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Sweet roasted malt aroma with coffee notes. Medium body with coffee, roasted malt and mild chocolate flavors. The finish is dry and roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Above average for the most part.

Sasparilla colored, with a decent head. Sweet, molasses roast nose leading into a smooth, sweet cola body. Rather thin on the palate. A touch of black patent sticks at the back of the throat.

Deep black color with almost brown lacing. Large roasted coffee aroma. Big on the palate with good coffee notes. Little big for the style. troopie (2453) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Draught. Dark black/brown with beige head. Faint aroma, possibly served too cold. Full flavoured with roast malt and coffee flavours. Malty finish. JoeMcPhee (9586) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Deep brown-black pour with a tight brown head. Rich fudgey cocoa and some herbal bitterness. A bit of roast and some complex toasted malt in the mid-palate. Nice balance. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Tap @ the brewery... Poured dark, near black with a thin, light khaki head. Nose had toasted, cocoa malt and a hint of nuttiness. On par for the style. Ashy ad chalky, moderate to low roast, mild hop balance and dark malts and sweetness. Moderate body and carbonation. Nice drinking porter. chris2431 (241) - Oregon, USA - JAN 17, 2012
