A dark ale for all occasions. A blend of dark malt gives this beer flavors of coffee and chocolate with some smokey roasted notes.

Despite a deep brown pour with bubbly head (that quickly lost its gusto), the aroma was somewhat metallic, but mostly earthy with hints of chocolate and malts. Flavor of grain, malts, molasses. Medium body made for comfortable enough palate.

Sampled from a bottle, this beer pours to a thick brown frothy head that disapates fully to a whisp of a ring around the glass. The body is a really dark brown with small particles sitting on the bottom. The aroma is coffee, grass hops, chocolate, caramel. Unfortunately the strong aroma disapated with the head as well. The flavor is quite nice, chocolate, smokey tanginess. This beer matches extremely well with the Koppís Tiramasu custard Iím eating at the moment. (Itís over 115 degrees outside even with the 30 mph wind gusts. Itís so friggen hot!) Anyways, the palate is rich and creamy, tangy. Light bitterness.

Pours a deep dark brown w/ a thick tan head. Aromas of rich roasted malts and coffee with a hint of chocolate. Tastes of chocolate malts and light roasted coffe hints with a creamy smooth finish. Just as good if not better than Sammyís Taddy.

(draft) Not a thing wrong with this beer. Thatís the first thing I thought of. No aroma to speak of, a mild chocolate flavor that was quite yummy. No bitterness at all. An excellent session porter.

Zeswaft (1493) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2005
UPDATED: APR 19, 2007 Black with dark tan head. Chocolate and caramelly aroma. Flavor lacks hops or any sophistication. Almost no flavor left on palate 3 seconds after swallow. Very smokey flavor. Average porter. rerate. this thing tastes really hoppy. sweet chocolate and really nutty. a lot like that nutella crap.

POurs a nice dark color from the glass with a nice tan head that fades to a thin whispy head in a few minutes. Bland smell, the slightest hint of chocolate after tasting. I didnít find this to be as impressive as some of the other beers I have been drinking as of late. Good taste overall, I would pick this over some other beers.

Thanks to csbosox for sending this. Pours a black color with brown hues and a thick but mostly diminishing light brown head. Interesting aroma and flavor of chocolate and roasted malt. Light to medium body, dry texture, soft carbonation.

Dark clear brown with a creamy tan head. Strong coffee and cigar aromas. Watery barnyard malt flavors. Backed with plenty of oats. Decent porter, but typical.
