Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at The Pine Box, Seattle. Dark reddish brown shade with a cream coloured cap. Aroma is fruity in a red berry sort of way. On the tongue charred wood, burnt malt, tobacco and rotting red grapes. I’ve not made it sound too appetising. This is actually OK, but feels odd when pitched against darker-hued porters.

Draft at Black Raven.
Aroma: Big roasty, chocolate nose; toasted nuts; hint of coffee.mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Appearance: Mahogany; clear; no head.
Taste: Toast/biscuit; chocolate; coffee; sweet up front with dry, bitter roast finish of moderate duration. Slight fruity tang there.
Palate: Medium-full; average carbonation; slick.
Overall: A nice, nutty porter.
Unusual porter -- a cross between a nut brown ale and a stout-leaning porter. Dark brown pour. Strong nutty and coffee flavor, with a slight modicum of bitterness. Highly quaffable and recommended! Pour from growler purchased at brewery the night before. B+

Tasted at the tap house. Can taste the nut flavors but not much of the coffee. Very little head.

Toasted roasted nuts and some brown bread on the nose, soft roast. Pours brown, thin offwhite head and lace. Flavors of toasted and roasted nuts, a hint of caramel, touch of dry roast and earth. Pleasant brown porter with good drinkability.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours brown with a medium thin dense tan head that dissipates slowly to an outer ring. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Sweet roasty malt and coffee in the nose. Light body with a sweet malty character and notes of mild coffee, chocolate and caramel. The finish is sweet and malty with a hint of hops in the aftertaste. Above average overall.

Black/brown, thin head. Aroma of roast malt. Taste of nutty malt and bread, nice and roasted. Medium light body, medium carbonation. BillKismet (4041) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Brown-bodied, not much head and light carbonation. Easy biscuit nut brown nose that translated into a dry, cleanly roasty, baked biscuit body with just the slightest hint of nut. Dry finish. Solid, but not too memorable. Crit (3973) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
