mcberko (16652) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
On tap at Old Market, pours a red-tinged dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is restrained, with light toasted bready malt. Flavour is more robust, with toasted malt, caramel and a decent hop kick. Nicely constructed and well-balanced. Good porter.

douglas88 (8942) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 16, 2015
On tap at OMP. Pours a clear brown color with a small white head. A light nutty nose. The flavor is intensely sweet nutty malts, bizzare like a creme brulee. Terrible really in some sense. Tastes like diacetal. Odd.

Keg at the brewpub, 11/11/14. Mahogany brown with a decent beige covering. Nose is light roast, cocoa, dark toffee, hint of cardboard. Taste comprises light roast, cocoa rub, dark toffee. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. So so porter.
