COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in our rendition of the classic English porter are perfectly balanced by a generous and complex hop character. Bully! Porter’s robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

Terminus (3319) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Great porter! I must say that it was better on tap than in the bottle. Great roasty malt with a very nice hop presence in the middle and finish. its only let down is that this brew is a little thin to be in the best.

What all porters should be. Thick amber head which clings well to the glass. A good mouthful with hints of chocolate and coffee flavors. Mild aftertaste. Not watered down like some porters I've had. Good beer to have with a meal. Boulevard scores again!

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2003
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Bottle (BB 08/23/09). Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, cocoa, husks), lightly hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with a light note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Rather husky and acidic.

Nice dark brown color with a thick creamy tan head. The aroma was filled with roasted malt and bitter hops. The flavor was quite acidic with bitter chocolate and roasted malt.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Big beautiful with a nice head. Chocolate and raisen aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate, perfect amount of bitter and hops. Porter isn't my favorite style, but this is good.

cornhusker01 (76) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Very similar to the Samuel Adams' Cream Stout (I may be giving a duplicate rating, it was that similar). The essence of coffee and chocolate predominated this dark brew.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2003
bottled (RAF): Nice head..red gleaming through the semi-darkness..hoppy, sweet, and buttery aroma with caramel roasty and toasty semi-chocolatey/semi acidic flava..

fraternie (888) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2003
Mostly chocolatey aroma. Malt follows in the same manner. Not overly toasted as I expected, which isn't really a good thing. Nice hoppy finish, flavor is a little disappointing.

Deep brown-purple; head had good lace and was dense; unimpressive nose. Expected dirt flavors. Decent roast. Good little hint of chocolate.
