CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a rich dark, nearly opaque brown with a frothy tan head with nice thin lacing. Aroma is nicely malty, roasty, and sweet with good dark chocolatey bitter coffee. Starts with sweet caramel and chocolate malts nicely balanced with a semi-dry bitter coffee flavor. Kinda like Founders Breakfast Stout’s little brother.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle, bomber: Deep dark brown, almost opaque although some light does find its way through, poured a smaller tan head. Aromas of light coffee, smoke, and roasted malts. Flavor shows even more coffee than the nose, roasted malts in the background, somel ight hop notes which fade quickly.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle. Mondial de la Bière 2005. Deep brown color with ruby reflection but thin brown head. Smoked roasted malt and torrified coffee. Taste of torrified coffee and roasted malt but the texture was a little watery. Bière de couleur brune opaque avec des reflets rouge mais, un mince collet brun. Odeur de malt fumé et grillé et de café torréfié. Au goût, c’est le café torréfié, le malt grillé mais, elle a une texture un peu aqueuse.

Bouteille de 1 pinte, 6 oz achetée au City Market (Burlington, VT). Arôme: Odeur de café et de malt torréfié. Apparence: Couleur noire pas completement opaque. Large col beige qui disparaît vite. Faible densité des bulles. Fine dentelle sur le verre. Goût: Goût de café, de chocolat et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture minérale. Arrière goût de café. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #183)

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Beautiful looking, absolute dark brown with sticky nitro-like head. Rummy oatmeal nose with plenty of raisins, but the airy malts give a very powdery feeling, floury rather than rich and chocolatey (this is from the nose mind you!). It gets confirmed in mouth where it is even less characterful. Rum soaked alcohol and flour mingle around insufficient roasted malts. Sweet powdery palate, watery texture, average example without much coffee at all.

IPA (17) - Leominster, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Bottle: Pours a dark brown with rich, thick and lasting tan head. Rich malt with slight coffee aroma. Medium mouthfeel, on the thin side for a porter. Finishes dry with a good hop flavor and slight bitterness. Nice porter, a very drinkable beer.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Tap at Horseshoe Pub: Poured dark brown with a medium tan head. Light coffee aroma and roasted malt. Flavor is sweet, light roasted malt and coffee. Fairly thin bodied. Well carbonated with a touch of chocolate in the finish. A decent porter.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Sweet malted chocolate milk with coffee and cream, roasted grain, some licorice and a bit of smoke. Light acidic tang under the sweetness. Twizzlers and some alcohol essence, too. Dark brown-black with thin lacing light tan head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium-high carbonation. Some carbonic tangy burn. Starts with good vapory malted sweetness. Taste of chocolate, bitter coffee beans, some Twizzlers, and cola. Good hit of acidity throughout, carbonic tang. Nice bitterness in the finish to combine with acidity that tones down the potential over-sweetness of these malts. Could be a bit less acidic, however, or maybe some lower carbonation. Otherwise, there is a nice robust malty coffee base to this porter.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 9, 2005
Pours dark with a light brown head. Smells of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is of coffee, chocolate and caramel with some smokiness to add en extra bite. Consistency is slightly oily. Finish is on the bitter side.
