Pours dark black with some foam, aroma of bitter malts with a taste to match, lots of taste but a bit thin on the mouthfeel, tap at brewery. Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clearish, deep amber hue with a creamy head. Toasty malts in the nose, light cocoa, dry toffee. Light sweet flavour with mellow toast, leafy hops, earth, light coffee. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more toasted grains, earthy bitterness, touches of dried berries, faint coffee and cocoa. So so. This is the closest this brewpub came to making an acceptable beer. Theydon_Bois (20450) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Keg at the brewpub, 01/02/16 as Rebob Porter.
Dark amber with a decent off white cap - not very porter like in appearance ... kind of washed right through!
Nose is light roast, toffee, charr, malt, grain, pretty basic.
Taste comprises toffee, light cocoa, grain, malt.
Medium bodied, prickly and overcarbed, sweet and bitter rinse in the close.
Pretty poor effort at a porter, almost like it was watered down. mR_fr0g (13158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2016
Draft a the the brewpub. Dark amber reddy, coloured pour with a cream thin head. Aroma is smoke, toasted brown bread, some burnt sugar, flavour is burnt toast, nutty, charred bread, mineral, chalky. Palate is dry and chalky. Mineral. Highish carbonation. Meh. phaleslu (10547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber with a small beige head that settles into a thick ring and laces the glass. Notes of toasted and chocolate malts, cardboard, nuts, dry leaves, and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, toasty, bitter, and - yep, you guessed it - chalky mineral mouthfeel. Frustrating beer. Should be better.

Draft - Dark roasty notes. Deep reddish brown with a beige head. Bitter roast and not much else. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
On tap @ Downtown Joes. Black in color with a khaki head. Watery and roasty beer that is just kind of burnt toast water. Not really a whole lot going on. Maybe a hint of marshmallow sweetness. Mediocre at best brewpub porter. Meh. VsXsV (4528) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2016
Draught at Downtown Joe’s Napa. Clear deep copper liquid with small off-white head. Looks like Coke. Aroma of coffee, licorice, bread and biscuit. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, ash and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very weird. Very pale for a porter.

Draft at source. An inviting chocolate aroma initially with moderate coffee. A weirdly light brown or dark red color. Seemingly light for a porter. Taste is mostly caramel with a light roasty character. No real chocolate or coffee in the flavor. A light mineral character. Weird. JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
On tap at the brewpub Clear red-brown pour with thin foamy head. Aroma is toasty, vegetal notes. Taste is sweet, burnt. Palate is med bodied with fizzy carb, soda like.
