dark red-brown. sweet caramel aroma. taste is a touch on the sugary side with a butterscotch toffee character. some interesting fruit notes with a raisin and overripe plums. finish is stout-like with a lasting bitterness. quite good but the syrupy sweetness lets it down.

Porter isn't really my thing, but this one's ok. Aroma and flavour from chocolate and coffee. Nice sweetness.

I don't know what's wrong with this beer. It smells like wet socks. It's extremely thin. And the taste...just...isn't...right...

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2003
Dark brown color with a light chocolate colored near fizzy head. Earthy grains and light fruit in the aroma. Fortified light wine, sorghum, and malt mixture. I envision this being reduced and poured over corn bread.

Very dark brown with a nice slight brown head. The taste is coffee and roasted malt. Nicely balanced though slight bitter finish.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Very dark black body topped by a huge creamy tan head. This beer looks very nice. Sweet malty aroma. The flavor is also sweet and malty with some raisin flavors. The body is big but not creamy, more liks a red wine body. The finish is fairly clean with only some lingering sweetness.

hopscotch (9956) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Dark bown ale with a small, frothy, light brown head. The nose and flavor are yeasty and chocolatey with notes of toffee and vanilla. Well-balanced. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, grassy finish.

The first sip is all raisins and garbage. It really mellows after the first sip or so, and some coffee and chocolate come out, but there’s nothing very special here. Sort of reminds me of my first Guinness Foreign Stout.

malty aroma with lots with alcohol smell. pours almost black. flavor is smoky, malty and of alcohol. not a bad porter except for the evident alcohol smell and taste.
