A-dark brown, a lot of tan head, waterfall effect

S-very sweet smelling. molasses is noticeable but not strong, fairly disappointing for a porter.

T-very watery with some chocolate hints in the after-taste. more of a stout than porter. this is one disappointing beer

M-just watery all the way through, very low carbonation

D-as bad as it is, the drinkability for some reason could be worse. its not completely disgusting and once you get past the fact its a sad beer, it can go down easily

Sampled 4/23/08. I was disappointed with this one. Dark brown body with a thin head and not really much lacing. Roasted malt flavor with some smoked caramel but it is a bit watery and thin. Goes down easy enough but leaves me wanting quite a bit more.

Part of the sample flight at BJ's Daytona

Sight - ruby red with a light tan head
Smell - nothing much of anything
Taste - traced of cocoa and toffee, lacking a back bite
Sweet - 3/5
Bitter 2/5

A very light porter, almost like a souped up version of the Jeremiah Red. I felt it needed more in the hop department as it was overly sweet.

3.05/5  rDev -13.1%

On tap at the Plano, Texas location.

The beer pour a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and roasted malt notes, as well as some light smoke. The smoke is more intense in the flavor, where there is also some chocolate and roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.26/5  rDev -7.1%

A: Pitch black, with a thin light chocolate color froth.

S: Strong chocolate with a hint of coffee. Odor of roasted malts raises the expectations, very pleasing to the nose.

T: Thin and watery, not what I was expecting. Nearly like a 'Light" malt. Not robust as described, nor as hearty as a porter should be. My palate was rather disappointed.

M: Light and smooth, but no richness to it. Feels too thin to be a porter. A rather large letdown for me.

O: Mediocre at best, too light, with no boldness to it. I don't think I'll be trying it again anytime soon. Maybe less nitro would help make this a stronger porter.

3.3/5  rDev -6%

A - Black, with a mocha head that retains and laces well.

S/T - A little light considering the robust nomenclature. Smooth roasted malt rolls into dark chocolate tastes with a slight earthy hop bitterness in the finish.

M - Feels thin, even taking the nitro into account. Turns watery quickly and doesn't have that rich mouthfeel associated with porters.

O - Tastes average, mouthfeel is fairly sub-par though.

3.45/5  rDev -1.7%

Brought to the table with a nice 1/2 inch head to go with a dark, creamy looking body. Smells of roasted or chocolate malt with just the slightest hop aroma. Tastes mostly of dark malts. Mouthfeel is a little lighter than I expected, perhaps due to the nitro tap. Drinkability was fair.

3.48/5  rDev -0.9%

Reviewed 12/18/2009 (Tap @ BJs Clear Lake, Houston, TX):

Pours a very very dark brown color body, almost black. Smallish creamy tan colored head, lastingish. Roasted aroma, some nuttiness. A little coffee. Some milky, creamy sweetness. Not very strong. Creamy mouthfeel, smooth. Some roastiness, coffee and sweetness. Pretty clean, a little watery, like a porter. Tasty. Very good lasting lacing.
