Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Had off tap at two beers brewing, surprised to realize it’s brewed by flyers. Semi sweet, roasted dark malt flavors. Middle and finish are Coffee/chocolate and medium dry. Nice fresh tasting brew.

Capa (3403) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Very dark. Sweet chocolate, dark fruit, faint roasted notes, some light sourness in the lingering finish. Medium bodied. A very well put together porter.

SeaTac, Wa - on tap at Sharp’s 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.

Gerbeer (3897) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2016
On tap. Pours black with very short tan head. Aromas roasted grain and black coffee. Flavors of ground coffee, dry acidic roasted barley, and powdery dry nuts. Nice

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.

Ferris (16303) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2015
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.

kathouse (1932) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Nice hefty roast aroma from this dark porter. Thick light brown foam. Body is silky with dark chocolate notes. R

On tap at Flyer’s 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 Flyer’s mainstay beers.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Thick and robust goodness from Flyers. Haven’t had in years now, but would definitely go for one if I saw it on tap up in tha 206!

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. It’s full flavored and full bodied, a straightforward porter with a pleasantly lingering roasted finish that’s overall quite enjoyable.
