B. Roasty malt with alcohol, kind of complex. 2006 tasting.

Pours dark with a brown edge. Head drips beautifully sweet caramel, charcoal, coffee coming across the pallet and aroma. The hops make it very smooth great transition beer.

Heavy molasses, decent amount of hops. Super-long finish.

Smokey aroma and good flavor. A mild Porter but great for a 7% ABC!

Smokey aroma and flavor. Mild hop bitterness aftertaste, but overall a nice balance between hops and malt. Hints of roasty chocolate and caramel. I wish there was a little more coffee flavor but it's still very good. Ballast Point hit home runs with their IPA, Witbier and other styles and this beer is no different. Excellent Porter, I would drink it again for sure.

Solid American-style porter. Nice dry roastiness up front, like fresh-roasted coffee beans, followed by a dark, sweet maltiness that makes this beer very drinkable. Perhaps a bit more aggressiveness with the hops would have yielded the perfect porter, but as it is it falls just short of perfection.
