SeaTac, Wa - on tap at Sharps Roaster and Ale House by the airport. Deep dark brown pour, sticky khaki colored head, nice lacing. Delectable cocoa and day old coffee aroma with a hint of licorice. Similar flavor profile, full bodied and full of chocolate goodness, some espresso notes, some trailing licorice sweetness in the back end. Nice chalky mouthfeel. PorterPounder approved. Rating #1 of 2016 vacation.

6oz at brewery. Very dark brown, almost black. Tan head, sticks around. Very roasted porter. Can easily be called a stout. Mild acidity and roast/fume is followed by a light "dry stout" like finish. Leaves a dry, lightly malt bitter, fumey finish. I could use a less roasted version.

Draft - Lots of dark roast, molasses and some toast. Jet black with a nice light brown head. Tons of roast, dark chocolate and roast. This is very solid.

mcberko (15016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Flyers Restaurant, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma brings out toasted malt, some dry cocoa and a touch of dry coffee. Flavour is quite nice, with roasted and toasted malt, some dry cocoa and again a touch of coffee. Quite flavourful and robust. Easily the best of Flyers mainstay beers.

Draught at brewpub
Black color with small creamy brown head. Very similar to the Brown Ale, just a bit bolder and more chocolatey, but the roasted malt and coffee dominate, and this is more Stout than Porter.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting, Sept 2013 - Pours very dark brown and smells of roast malt and coffee. The flavor is much the same and in a good way. Its full flavored and full bodied, a straightforward porter with a pleasantly lingering roasted finish thats overall quite enjoyable.

Bomber from Hayduke. This beer wears a rich frothy tan head and leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. It is quite dark with minimal red. I typically look for coffee and, or, chocolate in a porter. Neither of those are found here. More earthiness than anything. First sip is quite robust. A big zingy bitterness. A lot of grain and earth. Deep roastiness. Fruity hops that are under so much of the flavor. There is dry very dark bakers chocolate and it works well with this beer. I also get a hint of smokiness here. This is bold, dry, and bitter. Not your typical porter. I like it.
