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

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.

pjk33 (390) - Sligo - Curllsville Heights, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Bottle. pours a nice dark brown with slight head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is nice, with prunes, coffee, sweet cherries, tobacco and some other stuff that I’m not good enough to describe. Thin body as I pour some into my wordhole... nice immediate coffee and cocoa flavors with a slight sweetness that stays only for a second, like that hot chick’s glance toward you at the bar. Some sweet tobacco flavors in there as well. This is tasty, but not quite what I expected in terms of body. It’s definitely a fine brew. I think that Kalamazoo makes some good stuff.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Bottle courtesy of csbosox: Dark brown body with a creamy tan head that quickly fades to a small ring. Aroma is roasted malts, butter, coffee, and a hint of sweet molasses or sugar of some kind. Medium-full bodied, tingling carbonation on the tongue, slightly oily. Taste is acidic roasted malt, then roasted chocolate, molasses-covered coffee, light buttery brown sugar, and a hint of earthy hops. Based upon the mild buttery scents it’s possible mine was a little bit oxidized (not sure how old the bottle is), or it’s possible that mild buttery (diacetyl) flavor was just part of the intended flavor for this beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2005
A dark brown beer with a foamy light brown head. Hard roasted and buttery aroma with hints of coffee. Sweet roasted flavor with buttery tones. Not very full and medium bodied. Quite different and a little too sweet. Still pleasant.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2006 This pours a dark, dark brown with a slender tan head and slow carbonation. The aroma is mocha and roasted barley. This is very creamy and smooth in the mouth. The taste begins with burnt chocolate, blends into roasted barley, and finishes with dry coffee. Very satisfying drink.

piscator34 (2182) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
Very dark brown in colour with a tan head and light carbonation. The aromas are of dark crystal malt, some roasted grains, dark chocolate, and pencil shavings. There are some very assertive roasted nut flavors, along with notes of alcohol, dark fruit, and chocolate. Long finish. Generally, I like my porters a bit more mellow, but I still found this one to be quite satisfying.
