barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2005
(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.

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.

Quyntarious (33) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2005
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.
