On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse. Almost black with a creamy beige head. Intense roasted malts aroma, a bit meaty. Good roasted coffee flavours. Very well-made. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 21, 2011
On tap at PP Carlsbad. It pours dark brown with orange highlights and a creamy khaki head. The aroma is bitter dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is creamy and roasted with coffee, cocoa, and a nice roasted/ashy finish. Big flavor for a small beer. Nice job. brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
A: The pour is just about black with a creamy, khaki colored head that exhibits excellent retention.
S: Like most beers of the style, heavy on the roast and coffee aromas. A little bit of licorice and dark chocolate giving the beer some sweetness. Earthy hops are there in the background.
T: Intense coffee flavor or both the beverage itself and of coffee grounds. Cocoa and dark chocolate, along with earthy hops, provide a fairly substantial bitterness. A touch of molasses and toffee for sweetness.
M: Medium in body with a smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Goes down pretty easily. It’s nice to have some of these lower ABV beers. Especially a good one like this. HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 12, 2011
This is a review for the Port Truck with coconut and rum soaked oak chips on cask at Pizza Port. The pour is a very dark brown with a small head and some just ok lacing. The smell is terrific. Toasted coconut, bread, coffeee, some vanilla. The taste is fantastic too. It has a great toasted malt, coffee, and toasted coconut flavor. Very well balanced and almost crisp tasting. I could even imagine myself drinking it on a hot day in the sun! Mouthfeel was silky and smooth and the finish was slightly bitter with a tinge of sweet. Kudos to the Pizza Port guys on this one!! nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2011
On tap at PB TapRoom. This might have been past its prime. Pours to style. Very average in flavor -- coffee, wet wood, and dusty malt. Bland.

thin dry lots of roasty character, but too thin. Not bad. At the brewery it was listed as 4.1%. Could be the change in recipe is not good for the beer. jredmond (8445) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2010

Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pours a deep brown with a nitro cream head. Excellent nitro sheet lace. Weak nose: slight tobacco, iron, roast. Taste is thin, tea, coffee, light tobacco, malty. Good Guinness clone.
