mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
On tap at Mac & Jack’s, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma brings out coffee grounds, dry cocoa and toasted malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with dry crusty bread and light roast. Pretty ordinary but smooth porter. Decent.

JorisPPattyn (10004) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2006
Draught Served... ON THE ROCKS?? Black, exept reddish where the ice floats; thick brownish head. Despite the ice, very present roasted, dry-kilned malts and grains, even a bit cigarette ash. And even the same in the taste. In fact, it only diminishes the beer, the beers served in most brewpubs in Washington were ice cold too. Cigarette ash, roasted - I get some restsweetness. MF: well,... iceslickness. Is this serious, rating an iced beer? YES, IT IS! If the brewery/distributor/management lets its employees serve it this way, than it deserves no better!

bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Draft. Blackish beer with a light tan head. Light roast, light chocolate aroma with slight vanilla. Light roast, light chocolate flavor with light coffee. Medium body. Light roast and light chocolate linger. Lower flavor and easy drinking.

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at SeaTac @ 6am with eggs and bacon. Nice. Pours dark seemingly murky brown with tan head. Well maybe not so murky. The aroma is mild with notes of roasted malts, toffee and earthiness. This beer is served way too cold to get a good read on the aromatics. The taste starts mildly roasty and sweet with a light amount of dark fruity esters. I also get a suggestion of hop bitterness before a growing malt roastiness transitions from moderate roasted malts to more of a burnt maltiness with an edge of chocolate malts. All of their offerings here could be served warmer.
