JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - SEP 3, 2004
(on bottle)A sent of rotten bark of ash (the tree) and some roast. Not in a bad way, though. Noce violet/black color and a surprisingly weak taste. This most be the taste of original porter. No coffee, no liqurce and allmost no bitterness; easy drinkalble.

roder60 (1285) - 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 (5385) - 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.

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...
