Black with a brown head. No initial aroma, but some nuttiness and toffee come out after warming a bit. Roasted grain flavor. Very dry no real maltiness. Light bodied for the style though otherwise not unbalanced. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 13, 2016

Draft at the brewery, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small beige head that settles into a ring. Notes of chocolate, toast, tobacco, mild roast and a little bit of earth. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and an earthy mouthfeel. Simple porter. brokensail (16670) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 26, 2016
On tap @ Petaluma Hills. Very dark brown in color with a khaki head. Has sort of a nice fruity cocoa and coffee thing to it. Some sweetness of caramel, berry, and malts. A good bit of roasted malt flavor and bitterness to it. Fairly dry on the back end, actually, which I wasn’t expecting. A bit of an earthy and leafy thing to it, too. Okay.

Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma has nicely toasted malts, earth, dark sugars, dried fruits. Light sweet flavor with soft coffee, toffee, earthy bitterness, leathery berries. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dry and fairly bitter at the close, with hints of baking cocoa, earth, more leathery berries, mild coffee. Not bad overall. Ferris (16696) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2016

Draft at source. A very chocolate forward aroma with light bitter cocoa. Deep brown. Taste is bitter grain and harsh tannins. Not a fan.
