A dark brown, medium-bodied porter is endowed with a rich, creamy head and a delicious dark chocolatey aftertaste.

Dark brown pour with tan head and lace. Coffee and light chocolate aroma. Roasted malt and light chocolate flavor. A tad thin and watery but very drinkable.

Slipstream (2278) - USA - JUN 13, 2010
Black pour. Funky but fine yeasty coffee aroma. Roasty flavor with coffee and grassy hop notes that develop nicely on the palate. A touch of Coca-Cola in there too. A very good porter.

baraciisch (2462) - California, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Roasted and coffee notes... A lot more smokey than a lot of porters I’ve had, not a bad offering, but I’ve brewed better porters... Anderson Valley makes much better hoppy beers

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2010
solid black, thick creamy tan head. Aroma of roast chocolate malt, mild citrus. Taste is milky sweet with some sweet citrus and very little burnt/coffee bitterness on the finish. Medium body, thin creamy texture, soft carbonation.

corby112 (2704) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pours a very dark chocolate/chestnut brown color with amber edges when held to a light source and a frothy 1.5 finger tan head that slowly fades into a thin ring. Minimal lacing. Deep roasty aroma with hints of chocolate malt, roasted coffee bean, toffee, caramel, hazelnut and toast. Overly carbonated up front, biting the tongue followed by a slightly roasty, creamy chocolate malt center and a bitter earthy dry finish. Hints of roasted coffee, toffee, oatmeal, milk chocolate and dry earthy hops. Kind of sweet mid palate with a dry bitter finish.

J_man (834) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Dark brown ruby-tinged ale with a fluffy tan head. This is a traditional English style porter, so it’s not a stout calling itself a porter. Bitter chocolate and cream with a little charred malt sourness at the finish. Nice porter that goes well with food.

Really quality porter. Packed full of great malts and subtle hopping. Pour deep dark brown. Drinks really nice with really full flavor. Excellent brew. The marts are really amazing and rich.

highibus (758) - Vail, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours deep black with tab head. Not much aroma. Good roasty flavor with a bit of toast on finish. Pretty standard porter but nice and drinkable.

radagast83 (6101) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2010
22oz bottle. Aroma is a bold, rich one of chocolates, a touch of coffee. Flavor is creamy, rich. Smooth mouthfeel. Appreciate the lower alcohol content. Pretty fantastic!

BrewDad (5120) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2010
Big dark porter with tons of dark chocolate flavors. This was a tasty brew. I loved the finish this was and is going to be a sought after brew from now on for me.
