Backlog, from notes. On tap @ the brewpub, 12 May 2001. Roasted malts, with a light sweet taste and no bitter in the finish, more like a porter than a stout imho. Ungstrup (38864) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2005
[At GABF 2004] A red-brown beer with a collapsing orange head. The aroma is very sweet roasted with notes of chocolate. The flavor is somewhat sour - is it because of the low alcohol content? but it has a nice roastyness and a dry woody end. johnyvt (158) - West Hollywood, California, USA - APR 10, 2005
Nice tan head on the black beer. Really smells like a brewery, lots of fresh malt. Roasty malt flavor. A bit thin (seems to be a trend with some of the pizza port beers I’ve been trying). Jeppe (2634) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Draught at Pizza Port (Carlsbad), California.DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Fine creamy long lasting light tan head, black body. Mild roasted malty, flowery and grassy aroma. Roasted malt in the flavor as well with smoke tones. A typical Irish stout!
(Nitro draft: Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA) The expected dry and dark roasted flavor is certainly here, though the dark roasted flavor is fairly moderate; Bitterness is less intense than expected, but given the moderate dark roasted flavor, less bitter seems right in line; Fairly light palate for the style as well, but still with a medium body; The nose is Irish Stout all the way -- dry and dark roasted; The color isn’t black and opaque, but rather a very deep, deep ruddy brown; Creamy tan head with excellent retention as expected from a nitro tap; Head is not as thick as Guinness (can’t draw in it!), but it leaves a nice blanket of lacing

Pours a bark brown color that can be seen through when held to a bright light. The medium head is a light tan color with good lacing. Aroma is very, very roasted and malty. Flavor is mainly roasted malt with some nice nuttiness involved. Body is very watery. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
Dark brown color, almost black with a big tan head. Roasted malt aroma and the same roasted malt taste that's a bit thin. It is nice and dry though. Nice lacing all the way through. Mellow chocolate finish. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2003
This dry stout pours with a dark brown body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is slightly sweet but mostly bitter and roasty from the roasted malt. The flavor is slightly sweet, roasty and malty with a slight smokiness. There is also a slightsourness in the background. Full bodied, slightly tingly and dry. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2003
Typical stout aroma and a dark creamy appearance. Semi-sweet malty flavors dominate the body. Body is a little thin for the style. Roasty, dry and smooth finish rounds out this decent brew. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2003
Black as night with a big thick creamy white head. A mild smokey coffee aroma to it. Sticky sweet malt turns to chalk and then becomes dry in an earthlike sense with a few hops on the side, but barely noticable. Average.
