HH (166) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Well I expected more from this. Decent color, small short lived head. Flavor was alright if somewhat unimpressive. Body was rather thin. Still had 4 pints anyways. Gotta do something whilst the Seacocks are getting thier arse kicked..

Draft at the Africa Lounge. Super dark brown, small tight skin of head. Roast grains and chocolate on the aroma. Taste continues, mildly sweet, late bitterness. Lots of chocolate. Smooth Really good cold..

Black. Chocolate, anise, light roasted malt, some dark ripened fruit. A decent amount of pine and citrus hops. Solid if not memorable.

Rating #1904 - 2015.09.24 - #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 2 - Tap at the Crab Pot. Clear, dark brown pour with a foamy, tan head. Aroma is dark roast malts, walnut, chocolate, and almonds. Medium body, crisp, if simplistic.

Ehh, bland for a porter. Light & creamy in body but lacking in the flavor department! Pours pretty but that’s about the best thing going here. Mediocre at best!

mcberko (18950) - 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.

Blom (848) - Sorø, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
On tap. A nice porter with a fine malty roasted base and a floral hopiness in the finish. A bit weak in the palate.

3.4
kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body with a nice foamy one finger light brown head that had excellent retention. The nose is roasty and chocolaty with some nice licorice notes, a little coffee and caramel as well. The flavor is pretty nice, a touch thin, chocolate and roasted malts, some coffee, light malt bitterness on the finish. Light bodied and a bit watery in texture, but not in a bad way, soft minimal carbonation. Thin roasty lingering finish. OK beer, but it could use a little more body, a bit heavy on the roastiness for a Porter as well for my tastes.

Draught. I was not impressed at all by this porter. It did not sit any better than the macro porters coming out of Milwaukee.

Smooth finsh with just the right amount of bitterness one of the smoothest porters I have tasked

3.5
DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap @ The TapHouse in Seattle. Nice looking deep mahogany with a thickly lacing tan head, nicely balanced roasty porter with light ash, light aniseed.
