Hey another black colored stout from Pizza Port. Shocking! This one is full bodied black, good viscosity, beige head, right around that 1" depth spot, superior lacing as well as retention, this one is a looker as if she came out of roundandbrown. com if ya feel me.

Decent roasted malt aroma, not much else going on, but nothing bad, just really what a better than average stout will smell like.

Bitter coffee malt notes, doesn't taste like they actually added any chocolate or coffee, just gets those characteristics from the malt and its roastiness. Plenty of hops on this one too. Not sweet at all, a dense toffee flow to it, without sugar. Dry mouthfeel, lightly astringent. Alcohol tastes like it is in the 7.5% range. Licorice seems to be found quite often in Pizza Port's stouts.

Pretty good stuff, not going to make you forget about Pizza Port's ipa's, but nonetheless, more solid stout than your average brewery is gonna foist upon you. If you like stouts, would recommend. Drank on tap at my favorite Pizza Port: San Clemente.

Pours a nearly black opaque with a taupe head. Aroma is characterized by coffee and used bacon grease. Roasted malt, coffee and lactose flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy without being too heavy. Finishes with some sweetness from the lactose. Coffee acidity very late. Very solid.

On tap at PP OB. Tulip. Brewed at Pizza Port Ocean Beach.

A: Black with a big creamy brown head.

S: Lightly roasted grains with cream and dark chocolate. There's a restrained but evident coffee aroma. Earth blends with a dash of licorice.

T: Coffee and cream is what comes to mind. Low earthy bitterness and a really nice chocolate profile - a blend of dark and milk. Lightly roasted grains.

M: Lower full body with medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is silky and creamy.

Overall: A very nice foreign stout. Recommended.

Had this at ocean beach
pizza port. They say it's an award winner.

Head retention fair. Color is usual dark.

Mouthfeel is ok. Not too thick.

Taste very coffee like and strong. Too much coffee for me. I don't think it's that drinkable myself. Pretty heavy.

Upon letting it warm up a bit I find the flavor a bit mellower. I guess if you like strong stouts you will like this.

Enjoyed in a shaker pint at Pizza Port OB. According to their signage, this one’s a foreign export stout.

Pure black with hints of maroon at the edges. No chance of clarity here. Half a finger of frothy, dense tan head remains as a thick ring but doesn’t leave much lace.

Sweet chocolate malt lends scents of dark roasted coffee beans and cocoa nibs with oats and vanilla in the back. Smooth and deep.

Espresso and dark chocolate lead the flavor before the swallow opens things up with bitter roasted beans, chocolate malt, burnt bread and oats. This tastes more like an oatmeal stout than a foreign. Still good, though.

Moderate massaging carbonation breaks the brew into soft fizz, doing no favors to the weak medium-light body. Bit drying in the swallow. No hint of the booze, which is impressive.

Not bad at all. Z-Man is flavorful and, with the booze hidden as well as it is, is more drinkable than is probably advisable. This particular Pizza Port does great things with roast.
