On tap at Southampton restaurant. Tasted as part of a sampler. Yet another OK brew but nothing spectacular.

From a growler. Nut, roast, a little funk, and a little coffee in the aroma. Flavor starts slightly sweet with some chocolate and nut. Roast coffee bitterness and a slightly unpleasant metallic taste in the finish. Overall a nice beer--will try more from Opa-Opa.

Growler. Pours a fizzy dark brown color with no head. Nose is chocolate, dry roast, malted milk. Palate is stingy and dry with quite a bit of carbonation. Flavors of chocolate, cola, dry roasty malts. Tastes a lot like a diet coke with chocolate and vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark but not super dark brown with tan head. Aroma roasted malts. Medium bodied. Flavors roasty and toasty, some background of maybe a little dry hops and tiny amount of molasses-like sweetness. Reasonable.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Growler, from Julio’s. Labeled simply as ’Porter’ on the neck tag. Pours a clear mahogany brown body with a fizzy one finger light brown head. The nose is mostly dry chocolate malt with a touch of coffee and a minimal hint of hops. The flavor is a pretty standard Brown Porter, on the drier side with chocolate malt, a light roastiness, some moderate bitterness towards the finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent, an easy drinker.

Sweet, roasty aroma. Deep brown-amber color with off-white head. Nice roasty-sweet taste. A good porter.

Growler pour from some body at DLD, I remember vanilla and coffee with light notes of chocolate. A little thin on the mouth but it was pretty good. How the hell I have kept all these beers straight is beyond me.

8th August 2008. On tap at GBBF. Smooth and fruity. Some caramel. Aromatic. Not bitter but quite dry. Subtle coffee tones as well. Well balanced porter.

Growler from their brewery in Williamsburg, Massachusetts. It is a dark black color with reddish tinges under just the faintest trace of foam around the bare edge of the glass. Bringing the glass to my nose, I pick up some roasted nutty wafting around. The mouthfeel is full, teetering just on the edge of being considered "watery" but never actually crossing that boundary. A roasty sweetness swims into the flavor and leaves the faintest bit of chalky in the aftertaste. A very refreshing porter.
