Poured a dark brown with red tints with a small tan head. Lighter aromas and tastes of chocolates and coffee. Light bitter finish. Weaker for a porter. Thinner body.

"one of the more boring porters i’ve had, not that i’m surprised, given the brewer. it was worth a shot, though. nothing unpleasant, nothing impressive, just a boring beer."

j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a thin black to brown, caramel soda sort of color. Empty malt, light roast and toast, caramel. Low carbonation, thin and roasty. Coffee and roast. Dull and lackluster. Long sad toast and roast finish.

3.7
hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Crystal clear, cherry wood-colored beer. Medium-sized, frothy, khaki-colored head. Excellent, lengthy retention and decent lacing. The aroma is of toasted cashews and milk chocolate. The flavors are of weak coffee, cocoa and hazelnuts. Perfectly-balanced. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Dry, toasty finish with a hint of burnt straw.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small off white head that disappears immediately. The aroma has some roasted malt and piney hops, but nothing too prominent. The flavor is watered down roasted malts with a weak hop presence. Light body; thin mouthfeel. This could be considered a summertime porter, but doesn’t have enough going on to challenge the best in the style.

2.3
marcus (10231) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 16, 2007
This dark brown ale poured with a decent off-white head. The flavor is quite thin with a little maltiness and a slightly discernible hop finish. I used to like this one before all the great microbreweries sprang up, but it just doesn’t hold up any more.

3.3

Nice bitter chocolate…Fat coffee beans…Quaffable Porter…
