Aquilo (651) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
A decent porter all around. Black with little or no head. Aromas of coffee, toffee and chocolate. Flavor is moderately bitter with a little sourness in the finish. Tasted at Moylan’s side by side with the Irish Dry Stout. Very similar, but the porter has that hint of sourness and toffee.

22oz bottle $5, 5%ABV. Dark, dark brown, almost black. Smells a little roasty, nothing special. The flavor is actually not half-bad, some coffee, some roast, good stuff and extremely easy to drink. I think I finished the bottle in less than an hour.... Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-04-2010 17:56:48

bottle. deep brown body, chalky medium brown head. solvent and evaporated milk-tinged aroma of chocolate malt, roast and toasted oatmeal flakes. dense and frothy without being weighty. well-attenuated. moderate to heavy roast astringency with some mild malolactic notes (malted milk balls, milk powder). dry and ashen finish.

Bottle at the Sudwerks beerfest. Pours very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Deep rich chocolate aroma. Medium body; creamy carbonation. Flavoros of chocloate, burnt malt and light coffee. Decent bitterish finish. Goes down a treat.

3.5
hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Roasty aroma with bittersweet chocolate and caramel notes. Medium brown with ruby highlights. Tan head that dissipates quickly. Medium-low carbonation. No lacing. Malty sweetness up front with good hop support. Some astringency from roast. Medium body and carbonation and a bit creamy in texture. Nice sweet malt attack with a hoppy and astringent middle and a fairly lengthy and balanced finish. A good robust porter that I would have again to satisfy a porter craving.
