Jet black pour tan head and dark roast aroma. Not a ton of dark roast just the dark roast. Tasted real clean porter like and actually dry and refreshing.

(En fût au Pizza Port San Clemente): Base caramélisée avec une douce torréfaction, chocolat et finition haute en sécheresse. Buvabilité intense.

BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
17th July 2014 San Clemente Pizza Port, on my first flight of the day. Very dark brown, almost black in colour, dark beige head. The aroma was over roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate and mildly smoky. The taste very similar to the nose with some added liquorice for good measure. Seemed stronger than the advertised 5.6% ABV, very drinkable.

January 19th, 2013 - Too bad I didn’t take any notes on the where, why and how of having this beer. And my notes are succinct, too, but I think I understand why. The smell was simple and parsimonious, with a gentle scent of lightly toasted malts and cocoa powder, and the flavor is dry, like an Irish Stout. Sweet porters tend to monopolize my stash space, but I do like a dry version here and there, and this hits that particular spot. Good flavor, dry, and lots of room for pairing with food.

Meilby (11692) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
Draught @ Pizza Port, San Clemente, CA
Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, coffee, caramel and roasted malt. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long coffee and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

3.3
yngwie (17234) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Very dark brown in color, topped by a dark beige head. The aroma has licorice, roasted malts, dark chocolate and some bonfire. Full body, velvety carbonation. Bonfire, roasted malts, licorice and some chocolate in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish. Nice, not world class. 130813
