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.

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.
