On draft in a shaker pint glass.

Very dark brown but not quite black, ta colored head that fades fast. Aroma is mild, a touch of milkchocolate and mild roast. Similar taste, easy drinking but a bit thin, I'd prefer a little more body.

Had it on tap at the Bayou on Bay in Bellinghm, WA. Deep coffee, malty flavor. Like Peets espresso. Malt, coffee taste.
Rich mouthfeel, could almost be a stout. Nice carbonation, not too much.
Finish of licorice, hints of sweet malt.

Pretty, inspiring color. Pale brown head with coarse lacing.

Deep coffee, malty flavor. Like Peets espresso. Smells a bit like Ten Fiddy (which is awesome).

Malt, coffee taste. Also cocoa. Damn this is good.

Rich mouthfeel, could almost be a stout. Nice carbonation, not too much.

Finish of licorice, hints of sweet malt.

I bought a bottle of Pacemaker Porter in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pink glass.

Pours a black walnut color, nearly opaque, with a thick frothy tan head.

Smell is a sweet chocolate and coffee aroma.

Taste is a dark roasted brain flavor up front, with chocolate and coffee flavors along side, and dry bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is a creamy texture, slightly cloying, with a dry aftertaste.

Overall a nice porter. Perhaps a little more bitter than I would like, but not bad.

NOTE: The CH-300 Pacemaker was an amphibious aircraft of the 1920's and 30's.

Quite lovely appearance with a creamy tall head on the black brew in the narrow tulip. Plenty of carbonation on the tongue, and a big mouthful of flavor.

Dark roasted malt with some burnt flavors. Some dark caramel and a long deep dark flavor with just a touch of the malty sweetness. A little of the odd rye sort of flavor-- faintly sourish and grainy. The bitter finish brings a little hop flavor to the scorched bitterness of the grains.

The deep winey sensation with the sudsy mouthfeel makes for a very drinkable and smooth quaff. From the 22 oz bottle bought at the Flyers brewpub in Oak Harbor.

Who knew the little south end equivalent of a convenience store would have good prices on some beers that I had never had. Impressive.
Anyway, this one was one of the ones I picked up.

Decent cola body, but no head. The nose is sweet with some malts, with the taste following suit. It's a somewhat thin, but goes down smoothe. There's some plum/fig/dark fruit in there, and a minimal bittering on the end. It's not bad, it's just not outstanding, which relegates it to 'meh' status in the midst of my current splurging for the short time I am somewhere with a little variety, and thus discovering some amazing brews.
