Pours a dark brown cloudy liquid with a white foamy head. The head stayed for a little while, and there was a fair amount of lace. The smell had a faint amount of chocolate to it. The taste was slightly roasted sweet malt, with a hint of coffee at the end. Not bad. Pretty mild on the hops, and bitterness. Medium body, just the right carbonation. This was very drinkable. Good session porter. Nice offering from Avery.

12 ounce bottle from Hi-Time Wines in Costa Mesa

Pour into a frosted mug and took about an hour to drink this one tonight

Not too much smell

Nice black color with a thick tannish white head

Taste was amazing for porter, dry hopped which was interesting

Could not drink too many of these even though it did taste better as it warmed

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass...

The liquid was almost black with red highlights and a lofty, foamy, light brown colored head. The smell is strong with piney hops, toasted caramel malt and chocolate. When you take a sip you first taste the bitter piney hops, then the roasted malt and dark choclate take over and there is a hoppy, resinous finish. It feels kind of thick with low carbonation and a lingering, dry aftertaste. I think this was one of the best black IPAs I've had (haven't tried Stone's Sublimely self righteous in awhile though) This is a "must try."

Originally sampled on 2 April 2003. This pours black, w/ a small, short lived head. The aroma is roasty & slightly hoppy. Lots of roasted coffee & chocolate flavors in this medium bodied ale. A very nice porter. It was quite enjoyable. Thanks, hopsrus

Appearance: Dark brown brew with a tan head.

Smell: Bold hop aroma for a porter. Undertones of sweet malt with a touch of alcohol.

Taste: Balanced and flavorful porter. Good malt presence that paves the way for chocolate and smoke flavors. The hops help dry it out a bit.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. A bit chalky, but the flavor really lingers.

Drinkablity: Interesting interpretation of porter by Avery. Very tasty.

The beer pours a deep dark black color with a towering tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a nice dry, roasted flavor that boasts of chocolate and black patent malts along with a bitter hop aroma; very nice. The taste is good. It has a complex flavor that extends from creamy chocolate and black malts to a hoppy finish and aftertaste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a damn good porter. I love the hop character. It really adds to the already good aroma and taste.

12oz. bottle from Jungle Jim's poured into a standard pint glass.

A: Nearly solid black w/ dark cherry hues when held to the light. Didn't aggressively pour which led to a 1 finger toffee head that hung out a few minutes. Decent lacing for the first half.

S: Nutty chocolates and mocha. Vanilla background? Wish the smell was stronger. Very nice smell, just kinda weak.

T/M: Great dark German chocolate right up front. Not as much coffee as I would have expected but well balanced. I get a full body that continues to thicken as it warms but doesn't get chewy.

D: As with other porters and stouts, I'd have to say I'm stopping at one. Maybe if it were a cooler fall night, I'd have a second.

This pours nice and dark dark brown and leaves a nice fluffy head. It dissipates, but leaves an island and a ring which sticks foam to the side.

Smells chocolatey and malty.

Taste is incredible. Rich chocolate, malty, and some dry hop at the end to clean the pallete.

Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy.

Finish has a bitter snap and cleanses quickly with a dry hop end.

This is one really really really good brew. I recommend it highly!

On tap at Jose Pistolas... Pours very deep brown, almost black and when the light hits it you see the shades of ruby-red. Creamy tan head that sticks around for a bit after the first sips and then fades into a ring around the glass- some lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, smokiness, and hoppiness. Mmm, great taste, smokey chocolate, hops, and caramel. Pretty smooth mouthfeel, the smokiness and the hop bite is something nice to have in a porter. Definitely worth a few pints.

12oz bottle purchased at the Rocket Market in Spokane for $1.40. No freshness date.

Poured a very dark, nearly black shade of brown. When held to light there is the slightest, grudgingly revealed rubyish tint. Big, creamy mocha colored head that slowly settled rockily, leaving sheets of lace on the sides of a shaker-style pintglass.

While I detected the expected odors of roasted malts and bitter chocolaty sweetness, there was a surprising piney hop scent as well. It would seem this is a style-stickler-flummoxing hoppy porter (which is basically a stout, I suppose). But, hey, it smells good. I also got a slightly boozy, oaky scent.

The taste started out with a bitter, roasty character, with a mild, subdued chocolatey sweetness providing some balance. The piney hops scent noted above is present in the taste, though it is in the background, especially at the swallow. Tastes pretty good, but not quite what I look for in a porter.

Seemed a little thin in the body. The mouthfeel is slightly oily.

A pretty good porter, though it didn't quite pay off to the degree I had hoped for based upon it's appearance. I'd drink it again, but on-tap at my local, it would probably lose going head to head with Black Butte.

Aroma is extremely piney, slightly minty and woodsy; copious amounts of resinous hops take over with a very light touch of vanilla and toasted biscuitiness from the malt side.

Heavy, heavy bitterness from hops, but they still don't erase the tastes of dark chocolate and roasted malts. This is really the most balanced Black IPA I have ever had to be honest. I have yet to find a black IPA that wasn't too bitter or roasty but here it is.

The mouthfeel has small hints of carbonation and tiny bubbles which give you no problem whatsoever to have another sip. Not sure why they call it a Porter in the name and immediately on the packaging it says Black IPA, I don't get it but anyway, good job Avery. Couldn't drink these all night but a couple would be quite enjoyable.

Picked up a single at AJ's at the end of October for $1.79.

Beer poured a dark brown with ruby undertones. The tan head was two fingers on the pour and sustained long after. Nose is somewhat present, of toasted sweet malts. Taste is well balanced between the roasted chocolate malts and the dry hop bitter finish. Beer is sweeter than usual for the style. Mouthfeel is almost perfectly smooth, perhaps because of the amount of time is sat in my fridge. Overall drinkability is very good. This is a very nice porter that I plan on trying again!

Appearance: dark brown, nearly black. ’Chunks’ of sediment floating in suspension. Pours with a 2" beige head that recedes slowly with moderate lacing.
Aroma: cocoa powder, coffee, citrus rind hops.
Mouthfeel: medium and slightly chewy with a dry finish.
Flavor: an echo of the aroma with cocoa, coffee, some carmel sweetness and a bold citrus rind bitterness that lingers in the finish.
Overall: Good, but not great.
