Dark brown, nitro head. Chocolately character, very sweet up front but with a touch of balancing hop. Ok, but there are more complex examples in AK. Lubiere (14240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011

2008-09-06. Black body with a modest tan/brown head. (4+) Flavour has sweet malty base with roasty bitterness that escalates in the finish where a pleasant roast mingles with just a kiss of anise undertones, and hints of alcohol. (7+) Aroma of mocha roast is rather nice. (7+) Average plus palate is smooth. (3+) On tap at the brewpub.

On nitro tap at the brewery. Looks really nice with a huge brown head, cascading. A chocolate, ash and roast nose. The overall flavor is toffee, sweet chocolates, milky, vanilla. Solid. Creamy. bytemesis (9464) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Tap. Pours clear black, large creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashtray, cocoa, molasses, coffee grounds. Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, rich and roasty. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. Quite good. PorterPounder (8355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2004
Had on tap at the Resurrection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Dark purple to opaque black appearance with a thick, creamy, mocha colored head. Coffee accented aroma with some licorice undertones. Bittersweet chocolate flavor permeates thoughout with a bit of hoppyh back end bite. Delicous to say the least. Creamy, silky mouthfeel. Looking forward to visiting this brewpub later this week in Anchorage. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at Jake’s in Steilacoom. Pours absolutely jet black with a thick and creamy tan mousse up top. Not much lace. Nice big chocolate nose, very roasty, a little bit of anise there but not much. Gorgeous silky, creamy, thick mouthfeel, just a huge sedative of a stout. Nice big roasty body, soft sweetness from the oatmeal and then some chocolate notes. Unfortunately it’s amazingly hot and boozy for 5.4%; bits of acetic vodka creep through right near the end there.
