JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2005
Bottle. Dark chestnut brown with a large beige head. Rich fruity and malty aroma with some raisins and brown sugar. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, lots of caramel, some chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, quite smooth and creamy. I like it.

DrnkMcDermott (2992) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Nice chewy smell of raisins and molasses right out of the bottle. Pours a deep brown under a thick brown head, wafting the smell of brown sugar and cola through the room Taste is a little fruity, with a bit of dark roast malt astringency following. Touch of chocolate, molasses or rum. Despite its low price and doubtless roundabout way of getting to my glass, it is indeed a nice, robust, well-made porter.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2005
Sweet vinous, fruity aroma has some alcohol and some roast apparent. Clear mahogany brown body with shy, large bubbled tan head that recedes immediately to a very slight ring. Extremely sweet and somewhat boozy with strong sugary fruit character and some light roast. Medium body with very low carbonation that feels very still and unexciting in the mouth. I guess this bottle wasn’t in the best of shape. Half pint glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (State Line Liquors, MD, Oct-05).

joergen (25661) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
Bottled. Clear brown coloured with a beige head. Aroma of malts, caramel and coffee with roasted notes. Sweet flavour of caramel with notes of coffee and roasted notes.

shrubber85 (10364) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Bottle. A brown sugar aroma with only a hint of malt and hops. Dark reddish brown with small head. Sweet dark malt and brown sugar/molasses flavor with mild hops and chocolate finish. Body fairly light for a porter. Very good but may be too light for some.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Bottled. Not much aroma, just hints of chocolat. Black, light brown head, good lace. Sweet, loads of chocolat, some licorice, bitter finish, full bodied and soft.
