Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #37 (Feb 2010):
Big, frothy tan head is tempted to overflow but holds strong; dark leather-brown color sheds no glow for the eyes. Dry cocoa powder, hint of charcoal and used coffee grounds infiltrate the nostrils. Smoothness is nearly silky with a creamy backdrop. Roasty to the hilt but does not pass the point of being too much. Burnt sugar, smoky charcoal, Sumatra-roast coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate all come to mind as the malt drops a bomb on the palate. Hint of alcohol and dark fruit in the middle. Hops are a forethought, yet enough is thrown into the mix to help keep any sweetness in check. Pleasant roasty finish.
Top-notch Porter here: If you put your ear up to this beer, you would swear is quietly cries to be with oysters.
Serving type: bottle

I am still not 100% sure on how to rate porters, especially with the newer black IPA style. Before getting into the review, in my mind, this tends towards a black IPA.
A: it was a darker bar I tried this in, but pretty black with decent foamy head on the sides, returning in force with a swirl. Slight lack of lacing.
S: sorry for lack of detail here, but... black IPA
T: lack of malt depth, but not so much so to be out of balance with the hops. A roasty, unsweet, coffee-bitter type beer that doesn't offend.
M: just a little light, I think. Carbonation is good, though.
O: I think I produced a comparable beer in feel, maybe close in taste. Granted, I was shooting for a stout.
Serving type: on-tap
