MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2003
22 oz bottle, dark black in color, nice lasting creamy off-white head that leaves a sticky lacing in my glass, roasty chocolate-coffee aromas. Roasted burnt chocolate coffee flavors, nice bitter-sweet flavors, good roasted bitterness in the finish. Medium body with a full and creamy mouthfeel, good stuff.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Pours with a dark brown to black body with red accents topped by a huge lasting tan head with a decent amount of lacing. Bitter yet slightly sweet malt aroma with very slight coffee/chocolate notes. Slightly bitter malt flavor with a touch of sweet chocolate and notes of roasted coffee. The finish is slightly bitter with slight roasted coffee notes. Medium to full bodied and slightly smooth with a tingle from the carbonation.

Took notes on this one a while back - didn't make it to RB. Pretty earthy/floral-hoppy aroma for a porter, backed by chocolate, and toast. On the dry side with coffee coming out on the taste. Refreshing earthy bitter finish. May be a little on the thin side.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Deep dark brown with a medium brown head. Quite a smokey aroma, like a charcoal grill. Big malt profile. Starts large and musty smoke/coffee/cigar, then turns a little mellow, and ends sweet, bubbling across the tongue. I like.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Very robust. Deep opaque black with a thin sandy colored head. Aroma is replete with roasty goodness. Flavor is strong, with a thick mouthfeel. Very roasty, with a hint of black cherry and chocolate. Very good.

hotstuff (4274) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2003
This Porter poured a large tan frothy head with fine-small bubbles. The hue of this body is dark brown. The nose is lacking but I did pick out a mild coffee and malty aroma. It has a mild coffee taste to it. This Porter lacks some character in my opinion.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 19, 2003
This brew pours a very large head of creamy fine light brown bubbles and opaque black brown body. It has a mild roasted malt aroma with caramel notes. It starts off with a masking tingly carbonated mouthfeel that soon mellows leaving the essence of this porters coffee and dark chocolate flavors. Very nice but there is something missing in this porter keeping it from being great.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2003
Very dark with a huge ass head that is bigger than the body of the beer itself. Hoppy at first in the aroma followed by some malts in the background, both choco and smoked. Very nutty smooth flavor in the body with a few hints of smoke and coffee and even some choco and hell while im at it there was a touch of caramel there too.

OldGrowth (2757) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - MAY 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2003 Bottle: Nose is lacking. Faint malt chocolate. Nice dark brown color. Kinda plain tasting. some smoke. Thinnish creamy. Almost makes me think brown ale.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2003
In true Anderson style the hops are the most noticeable feature of this beer. After that, the espresso gets you and never really quite leaves. Very piney, bittersweet, acidic, and a touch smokey. For a porter this is a bit lacking in palate appeal, but retains that Northwest tastiness.
