roder60 (1282) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Cool 16.9 oz bottle. Extremely large fluffy tan head. Dark brown appearance, almost black. Very roasty dry coffee flavor. The roast is not too powerful, but the dryness does come through pretty big in the finish. Not a very complex flavor, but well balanced all the same.

color is a deep deep brown, no light gets through though. head is tan, and bubbly. aroma is fairly roasty, but more smoky. but the smokiness is not overpowering and is quite complementary. chocolate is there, but VERY subdued. flavor is virtually the same, smokiness, mild roast, mild chocolate, light alcohol, bold flavor...damn good if you ask me.

egajdzis (5254) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Opaque black with a medium sized tan creamy head with some nice lacing on the glass. Malty sweet, dark fruits, lightly roasted aroma. Sweet chocolate and roast, burnt notes. Watery mouthfeel. This had good potential.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Bottle. Nice deep dark brown in color with a tan head. Clean tasting and malty. Not too much malt thought, very faint. Dry in finish. Decent beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2004
0.5 l bottle. Pours a nice deep brown, tan head. Clear. Aroma is clean with a faint malty roasty note. Flavor is rather shallow, with some maltiness, but not the depth that you would want or expect. Dry finish. OK but I want more.character...

freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Dark brown with reddish tints and towering creamy lasting head. Sweet chocolaty with a distinct raisin/winey flavor. Long malty finish with a full body. Notes of asphalt creep in near the end. A fine full-flavored porter.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2005 (Bottled) Very dark red color with medium, beige, lacy head. Burned-malty, slightly sweet but equally roasty aroma with a hint of licorice. Sweetish, very roasted-malty, dark chocolate flavor with coffee and anise hints. Medium to full-bodied, syrupy, velvety, soft-carbonated palate. A very nice, well-balanced, high-quality porter - delicious! Something between Sinebrychoff Porter and Ayinger Celebrator.

Pours almost black with a firm creamy brown head. Sour toasty chocolate malt nose. Big chocolate and sour goodness. Piles of malt and brown sugar. Citric finish with some sweet and sour yeastiness.
