Black color. Light aroma, some caramel, roasted malt and paperboard. Roasted malt caramel and malt taste; very light coffee presence in the bitter finish. Ordinary.

On tap at Bells. Poured a small tan head that quickly dissipated, fair lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Aroma was malty, chocolate, roasty and coffee. The flavor was malty, sweet, chocolate and mild coffee roastiness. Smooth palate.

Bottle. Wow! This is probably one of the best porters Iíve ever had. Opaque black. They use simple flavors of chocolate and coffee with dark malts, but it comes out incredibly well balanced and complex. Hints of sherry as well - drinking this would have made me suspect it was a Bellís beer, it somehow reminds me of the Expedition Stout. Lasting and wonderful finish that makes me with I lived in Michiga...well, not really, but itís damn good stuff.

6587 on the bottle? Thanx to Duane, a good brew to watch the pro-bowl, the NFL send off, and wait a few days to spring training! Poured very dark, like black. Nice tan head that clung to the glass like barnacles to a boat. The aroma had chocolate and almost burnt coffee. The body was almost full, it goes to the edge of full, and ends, just stops. Like it fell of a cliff. Good dry finish and linger sweetens. The carbonation was just a bit too much.

madsberg (10618) - SÝborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Bottled: Red/brown coloured. Light brown head. Dense. Chocolate, sweetness, roast and malt in the aroma. A little vague. Flavour is roasted, sweet and has some malt and chocolate. Is a bit thin bodied. Is sweet and roasty in the end. Thanks Springslicker for trading this.

An opaque brown beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast, chocolate, and hints of coffee.

#600. WOnderful warm, raosty, caramel, chocolate malty smell. I let this sit out for about 45 minutes before opening it, and it got the the perfect temperature. The mouthfeel ir smooth and really lets out a nice roasted chocoaltey taste. This is one damn fine easy going porter.

Cobra (1100) - - FEB 10, 2005
12 oz. brown longneck bottle. Again, no freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a dark chocolate brown, with a loose, fast fading tan colored head. Aromas are mostly of yeast, roasted malts, and fruity esters. I think this batch was fermented too warm myself. Thin body, burnt coffee aftertaste, & not well balanced, IMHO.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this!! Pours a dark redish color.. almost black with a medium head. Smells of sweet coffee and malts. This tasted heavily of coffee with hints of chocolate and a nice bitter finish. Taste more like a stout to me but very tasty.

Again, Iím comparing this to to Bully Porter because I had it the same night. Dark brown color with off-white head. Roasted smell and a slight coffee taste which turned me off.
