look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A-dark brown, near black with a nice sticky tan head

S-smells like Oreos, faint but awesome. Some mocha.

T-comes in with an awesome and faint flavor of Oreos. Has some mocha. In the after-taste, which is matching, but with a smoke flavor. Some meatiness to it as well.

M-medium creamy carbonation, slightly watery with some bitterness.

O-definitely a tasty porter. It gets points for being the only beer I've had that has a slight Oreos flavor. The flavors itself are just way too weak though. Drinkable though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Dark and hoppy brew. Not quite black. A modest head with nice lacing in the big snifter. Quite spritzy in the mouth.

Some malty, chestnut flavors. Light bodied and surprisingly bitter. A little underbalanced for the watery body and overhopped taste. Winey and intense. A hint of caramel in the nose. Grainy, with a bitter aftertaste. Quite dry.

Not bad at first sip, but kind of overly austere and unfriendly after a while. On tap at Leroy's Kitchen in Coronado.

Pours a dark brown with glints of red. A taupe head disappears as quickly as it develops. Coffee up front on the nose with a note or two of coconut. Light bodied mouthfeel for the style. Dark chocolate with some cherries late. Very smooth finish. Solid.

On tap at Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego, CA.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and coffee. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is quite tasty and very drinkable.

Growler

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Dark brown, nearly black, with a large dark brown head that leaves spots and irregular lines of lace down the glass.

Aroma is simple but expressive and nice: roasted malt and mild coffee.

The flavor follows that aroma: simple but full of flavor. Roasted malts, mild coffee, and some bittersweet chocolate combine nicely with a low level of bitterness.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

Solid porter, since renamed Park West Porter.
