COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lip-smacking dark ale is mellow and malty. The aroma is reminiscent of bittersweet dark chocolate and the caramel and roast malt flavors are exceptionally smooth. Medium bodied, with a slightly sweet edge but a dry finish.

Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. The beer is a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light to medium body with a sweet roasty character and notes of chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is charred malt and coffee. Decent overall.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bomber. Pours an opaque black color with substantial light brown foam. Plenty of unsweetened chocolate, roast malt and coffee in the aroma. The flavor has a good deal of smoky roasted malt and espresso at the start along with some dark chocolate, caramel and citrusy hops bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with strong carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. The overall flavor is smooth and balanced with the right amount of coffee, chocolate and roastiness.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Tap @ Parkway. Deep brown pour with ruby highlights and a short tan head with good retention and leaving minimal lace. Nose is chocolate with a hint of cinnamon developing as it warms. Light body with moderate carbonation. Baking chocolate, toffee, pumpernickel and slightly tart. Finish is medium, bitter and chocolatey without much sweetness. Too light, not very complex.

reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2011
650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with about 2 fingers of off-white head that settles to some nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of fruit. Taste is malty sweetness with a hint of chocolate and a fruitiness and a light hoppy bitter finish. A very nice porter with a medium body and light carbonation which left a nice mouthfeel. A treasure to enjoy.

DuffMan (10278) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle, shared with JJ. Heavy looking dark brown pour with a slow-to-form light brown head. This beer looks bigger and denser than I was expecting! Aroma is very nice, lots of chocolate, some coffee, some dark fruits (cherries?). Nicely flavoured malty palate with bitter chocolate, coffee, dark caramel, and dark fruit essence that contributes a slight acidity. Medium to full bodied, despite the lower ABV. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. A nice surprise!

Dark almost opaque brown color, small steady creamy beige head. Light toasted notes. Light-bodied. Flavor is slightly tart. Roasted malts, coffee and caramel. Light and maybe not in top condition.

Sampler @ Chuck’s. Totally solid porter. All the right aromas that make me want to drag a pint out over a long night at the pub. One drawback was too much carbonation. The other was too little flavor. Washed out in the finish, but then sometimes I forget the difference between porters and stouts.
