goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
Poured a clear very dark brown with a thin beige head. The aroma was roasty, smokey and doughy. Roasted malt flavor that was light and dry from front to back. Dry bitter finish.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Bottle. Small fizzy tan head that was mostly lasting, next to no lacing, very little carbonation noted, semi-opaque, and a dark brown hue with a reddish tint. Nose was semi-roasty, sweet, chocolate, and some dark fruit. The flavor was roasty, chocolate, semi-sweet, dark fruits, and a hint of alcohol. Finishes dry. Smooth, dry mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable, good for the style, nicely done, ABV well masked, well balanced, and worthy of a try.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 10, 2009
750ml from my man StFun - thanks, Josh!!! Decided to sample this as NFL preseason kicks off (yes, I am lame). Nice dark brown pour, thick and oily, and with minimal head but some decent sticky lace. Strong chocolate notes in the aroma, along with slight fruity and lactic traits. Really enjoyable mouthfeel, the kind of thing that’s great to roll around in the mouth. Silky feel is abetted by the recurrence of Baltic properties in the flavor, and there are also some fine bitter and smoke elements coming in there. But overall it’s a thick milkshake of a beer, and quite enjoyable as such.

On tap in a lager glass. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same with sweetness like bubble gum on the finish. Smooth texture. A pretty good porter.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 19, 2008
750 ml bottle. Poured a cloudy, nearly opaque black color with a bit of red around the edges and a tan head. Big molasses and milk chocolate aroma with a hint of alcohol. Slightly sweet on the tongue and medium bodied with a relatively creamy mouth feel. Tasted of chocolate and rum soaked fruit cake made with plum, raisin, and fig. Not too bad.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle via alexsdad06, thanks dude, I had the Bourbon Version last week. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is sweet and chocolaty but overly sweet and boozy. Taste is sweet, boozy and all in all hot. This is good but it ain’t got nothin on the bourbon barreled version.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2008
bottle....pours almost black but barely allows some light to pass through. s sustaining fluffy light tan head also came with it.....chocolate and cocoa made up most of the nose. there was also a little dark fruit presence as well.....chocolate and dark fruit in the flavor. medium carbonation with a full creamy mouthfeel. it finished off on a slight bitter note. pretty drinkable even at 11%.
