cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Draft at woodinville pub. Pours dark brown little tan head. Aroma of nut, coffee and pine. Balanced with huge toasty finish. Solid drinkable and even better on nitro.

bruno1378 (126) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Pours almost black, no light to be seen. No head at all. A bit of a light roast aroma. Surprising fizzy mouthfeel. Not special, I expected more.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Pours a slick jet black with very little viscosity. Thin head disappears quickly. Minimal aromas of roast with hints of coffee. A well-attenuated and fairly dry finishing robust porter. Nothing stands out or is too exciting about this one.

Nice start and middle; very flavorful, but the end leaves something to be desired, a bit too clean.

solsticebrew (61) - USA - AUG 13, 2009
Bottle, Honolulu. Carmel and chocolate aroma. Very dark amber but can still see light through the beer. I like this porter, it is a good tasting beer that is not too heavy. Good on price and taste.

Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - AUG 3, 2009
on Nitro at the Barley pub, Dark brown pour with beige head. aroma is some roast and some cocoa/coffee. a touch of dark fruit as well. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the flavor is decent, though not striking, some coffee bean and milk chocolate followed by some roast at the finish. Not to bad, very drinkable, but ordinary.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2009
Draft from a nitro tap. Pours a very deep brown with a creamy, light tan head. Light roasted notes with a little earth in the nose. Very low carbonation with a medium, creamy, yet slightly dry mouthfeel. Roasted malt, earth, mineral, and some wood on the palate. Medium finish. I would have liked a little more flavor out of this one.

djd07 (13161) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a medium cremy light tan head that diminishes quickly leaving behind decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is a fruity malt with raisin and light roast. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter taste with light coffee and chocolate. Easy to drink, a good porter from Redhook.
