I wasn't expecting much from this beer of modest potency at an outpost of the hoi polloi (comme moi): one of the lesser touristic quarters of Las Vegas, Nevada, within hailing distance of that ersatz Bourbon Street, the Fremont Street Experience. It arrived at the table, however, in distinguished black-and-white. Its tight ecru head was sharply set off from a formal, opaque black body, and left impressive remnants as the level of the brew receded. The aroma was of cocoa; the taste similar, but with a greater depth than the altogether pleasant fragrance prefigured. The beer is silky on the palate, and, in toto, is a fine piece of work. To the brewers at Main Street Station, I offer congratulations and gratitude. Nice job!

This stout was poured on nitro-tap, and came out a very dark brown colour with good clarity. It smelled clean; I could easily pick up on the roasted notes of coffee, and also a slightly sweet. This stout tasted almost exactly as it smelled; clean flavours with coffee upfront and a slight malty sweetness. Very tasty.
Would I buy this beer again? Definitely.

I visit Las Vegas at least once or twice a year and the Triple 7 Black Chip Porter is my only beer of choice when I am there. After gambling all night, this beer is a winner. I love the dark rich coffee color of this beer with its cream color head. You can smell the hops and earthiness of its flavor. It is a heavy stout beer with a smooth, sweet creamy taste and a slight bitterness at the end.

Had on tap at the Main Street Casino Brew Pub.
It's a deep black with a dense, creamy brown head. A beautiful beer
Roasted malts come through on the smell.
Dark, sweet chocolate, coffee, nice balancing hops, very good!
Velvety creamy, perhaps a bit thin, but very nice
A very good beer, I'd get it often if it were available where I live.

Consumed on 1/6/10 at Main Street Station, Vegas for less than $1.50
A - A healthy finger of creamy cappuccino head. A dark wooster sauce color. Noticeably strong lacing.
S - Sweet chocolate notes. Distinctly porter. Porter-iffic. Not much as complexity goes but enjoyable.
T - A bit of bitter hop and some roasted flavors. Simple but pleasant.
M - A touch watery but still cool to the palate and warm to the spirit.
D - Not bad. Could get again. It's a great beer to get for free when gambling in downtown Vegas.

Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours nearly black with a thin beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of hops. Medium-bodied and smooth with flavors of roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Touches of hops are present too. The finish is roasty with chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Pours almost black with a medium brown head. The thin film head lasted 1/2 hour plus.
Smell is barely there but what shows up is some light coffee, smoke and a little roasted malt.
Taste is malt, coffee, peat, smoke. Good balance.
Light-medium body, thinner than desired but stops short of watery. Coffee note lingers with the malt.
Overall, a good beer in need of a little Charles Atlas body-building and something for the nose to enjoy. Beef this puppy up a bit and it'd be very good indeed.

Definitely the best of the Triple 7 beers I tried during my visit. This beer was by no means great, and none of the beers I had from here was bad, but this was king among the 3 that were all...not bad.
Dark as the ace of spades with a full tan head. Aroma was faint, but chocolatey, roasty, and a bit smokey. Flavor was the same. Mouthfeel was a bit watery, but not bad. Quite drinkable for a porter, owing at least something to the wateriness.
Nonetheless, I would recommend this beer.
I had this on-tap at the brewery.

Consumed 05/09/08 at the brewery.
Very dark brown beer with deep garnet highlights. Thin skin of foam for a head with minimal lacing.
Primarily chocolate malt aroma with a hint of nuts.
Distressingly thin in the mouth. Mild roasted coffee on the palate. An entirely appropriate touch of sourness follows. A nice chocolate aftertaste.
Nothing wrong with this beer, but it did not excite me. Still, it was the only one I ordered more than once.

After trying the sampler, I settled on this beer to pair with the oysters. This is undoubtedly the prize beer of Triple 7. The beer is simply balanced to perfection with a nice blend of bitter-sweet cocoa, columbian coffee, nut and plumb undertones, and a silky feel. The nose picks up on the powdery cocoa scent and a bit of esters and spicy citrus hops. Flavors take on the coffee and cashew character and blends them with the chocolate and fruitiness found in the nose. A light dose of oats are likely used to get the mouthfeel just right. Finishes with a delicate blend of coffee-like bitterness blended with spicy hops for crispness and dryness. The moderate body and alcohols keep the beer drinkable and refreshing. this is simply what a good porter should be.
