BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
A Russian porter, how could I pass that up? . Heavy malty flavor with bitter coffee and dark chocolate. Better than I thought it would be, but unimpressive for the style.

Bottle. Molasses and chocolate malt aroma. Dark black-brown colow with no head. Molasses and walnut flavor - slightly bitter finish. Tasty - stands up well to other porters but canít really expound as this was my first beer in this style.

This beer has a dark brown body - hue apperance and a coarse light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is typical porter.

This was the 2nd from this brewery, and, better then the lower numbers. Typical of porters, this was dark, not black. Had mild roasted nose, and decent ABV, with no ABV tasted. This was ok.

Pour is blacksih brown with a nice big tan head...light coffee roasty nutty aroma, but it is quite faint...watery taste...mildly roasty...quite drinkable but most uninteresting overall...I expected more, lord knows the other beers from them Iíve had were not exciting or really even that tasty...

Bottle 16.9 oz. Poured dark brown with medium light brown head. Good aroma with malt, hops and sweet tone. Medium to full body with creamy texture. Full flavor with mrdium sweet finish. Very good porter.

Braudog (6196) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2005
A magnificent pour ... with a cascading mountain of a head over a dark brown liquid slighly thinner than motor oil. The aroma is stark ... sweet and sugary. After the nose, I expected the flavors to be more offending. Instead itís smooth and inviting, lightly sweet, with notes of smoke, yeast, maybe a little coffee.

IslandHaole (1207) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Dark Mahogany color with small tan head. Tart, roasty, earthy. Mineraly with coffee and some sweetness, odd. Not bad, just unusual.

TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2005
This is a beautiful porter when poured in a glass: midnight black in color with a light tan foamy head. The foamy head disappears quickly after the first drink. There is little to no aroma in the bottle I have, but what is there is mostly coffee-ish in nature. The flavor starts out thin, but expands to tcover the complete palete. The finish is very clean with no after taste. The flavor is mostly malty, with a hint of chocalote. Very good beer. Think Iíll have another.
