Bottle at our monthly bottle share. my personal favorite of the night. Lots of chocolate and coffee on both the nose and the tongue. full bodied in the mouth and a nice smooth finish. This one made lots of friends that night.

Zymurgeist2 (1910) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 8, 2015
From bomber to tulip. Aromas of coffee, slight lavender and roast. Pours very deep brown with minimal chestnut highlighting. Taste is roasty and floral, a little disjointed. Finishes harshly bitter.

You can blither on about robust strength and dark imported malts until your arse catches fire, this beer suits only one adequate description: a silky chocolate mousse in a beer. Yep. I like it a lot.

Sammy (11387) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Very good porter, from a recent USA trip. Robust yes, hops not overwhelming and adding flavour. Not too roasty. Very drinkable, and still strong carbonation.

BlackHaddock (6550) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bomber on my daughters patio (Laguna Niguel) on 24th May 2015. Decent Porter, black body, tanned topping, looked the part. Malts all the way here, dark chocolate, ground coffee and some root liquorice notes. Body depth good, smooth and tasty. Light smoky/over roasted feel to the finish.

Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, mild coffee and dryness in the aroma. Roasted malt, strong coffee, roast, dryness and ash in the flavour.

SteveOrz85 (226) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Poured from bomber into tulip. Poured black with two finger tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is lightly malty. Taste is robust and is lightly sweet with a fairly smooth finish. Notes of toffee and roasted malts. Light to medium carbonation. Great tasting average porter at an affordable price. $5.50 for a bomber not a bad price in PA.

Another black thing with thin light brown head. Gives off chocolate, burnt toast aromas. Taste starts very roasty - let it warm up a bit and the alcohol comes into the picture with a bit of heat. Finish is dry, bitter, and a little floral? Hop character in the end is unusual for the style - I like my porters a little richer than this one. The dryness of this is even approaching CDA territory.
