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. austinpowers (2832) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 31, 2003
I'm now working my way through my ten beer sampler here at Pizza Port (San Clemente) and am enjoying just about every one of them. This Pier Rat Porter is a standout beer for The Port - it's mega malty and a bit sweet. Not dry like an Irish Stout. Nice beige head. What's not to love! dwyerpg (6285) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 10, 2011
A bit of coffee, some roast. Red-brown color. Mmm. This is thick, chewy and sticky but not too sweet. A slightly sugary finish. Certainly a good beer. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Deep dark brown pour with smallish tan head. Malty from beginning to end. I've got to hand it to Kirk again, this is a fantastic beer.

Pours a dark burnt brown color. Medium off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma is a wonderful malt sweetness, mixed with coffee and chocolate. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, some alcohol. Hops actually peeked aroudn the corner of the malty sweetness. Body is silky smooth and very pleasant. An excellent porter, jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2005
On tap @ Solana Beach location. Is this a porter or a stout. Either way, a very drinkable, well balanced beer. Looks nice in the glass too. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Tap. Nice dark brown pour with a wispy tan head. Roasted malt, milk chocolate, some dark fruit notes, and coffee nose. Flavor is roasty, dark bread(pumpernickel), coffee and chocolate. Pretty nice stuff! jjgmd (2212) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
On tap at Pizza Port , San Clemente, pours a dark brown black with a small head. Nose is malty and chocolate, and pleasant. Taste is strong malt with coffee espresso flavor. Finish is sweet and ends with the same flavors it starts with . Nice. Quaff Score 8/ 10 BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Dense opaque, dark ruby, brown appearance, thick head (nitro?). Caramel/toffee, roasted malt aroma. Dry hazelnut, heavily roasted palate, dryish cocoa and coffee flavors, fairly bitter bite in the finish.
