Tasted at the brewpub on 7/9/2009. This porter pours a medium to dark amber gold color from the tap. Small sized beige head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee and a touch nutty. A medium bodied porter. The malts are roasted, chocolate and coffee. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. There is a touch of a nutty flavors is this one as well. It just so light in color, not that that is a bad thing, you just expect a porter to be much darker in color. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I had this on draft at the Beach Chalet brewpub. For a porter, a lighter brown than usual, but the dry, roasty, nutty coffee flavors stood out.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Pours a surprisingly light color for a porter. The color is really a light brown. But despite the light color this brew is not light in any other way. Strong roasted and burnt malty aromas and flavors make this beer a real treat.
