Pours a deep brown, almost black color with a finger thick, light tan head. Smells of roasted malts, coffee. Taste is a little bitterness, dark chocolate, smoke. Medium body, quick finish with a little bitterness lingering. Very nice, leans towards the bitter side as advertised. Different for a porter and I like it. Would happily have again.

This is very nice porter. It pours a very dark brown with two fingers of head. The aroma is of coffee, roasted malts, with a nutty finish. The taste is of slightly burnt bread, coffee and some hop bitterness.

Really dark chocolatey brown color with a medium head tan in color. Malty aroma and taste. Smooth yet with a hint of rough seas. Porter-like but unique. A worthy tribute to the tough, leatherneck, seafaring fellas whose last day on this Earth, sadly, was November 10, 1975. Cheers to ya forever!

Pours a very dark black with a thick light caramel colored head on top. Can smell roasted malts and hints of coffee. Has a roasted malt and chocolate taste with a coffee after taste.
