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.

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 (826) - 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.

legion242 (2223) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2003
Deep brown-purple; head had good lace and was dense; unimpressive nose. Expected dirt flavors. Decent roast. Good little hint of chocolate.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Near black color with a taller light tan head. Dark chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Lightly sweet malt and dark malt bitterness. Smooth and not to filling. A good session porter.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2003 Nice Porter, dark brown in color, aroma of roasted malts. Flavor was fairly sweet with a good mix of bitterness and malt. Slightly bitter finish. Many Thanks PhillyBeer2112!

igneous1 (1500) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - FEB 7, 2003
dark brown color, with ruby/garnet shades when held up to the light. some sediment settling. huge beige foamy head that overflowed the glass and left behind serious sheeting! aroma is coffee and sour yeasty notes. flavor is coffee notes with a fairly sweet aftertaste. detect a bit of used coffee grounds. just a little thin...otherwise, very tasty.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 This is a great Porter. Thick, but not unbecoming a porter, slightly sweet but dry to the finish. Black as night with amber shallows. You can smell this baby as it pours from the glass and never fails to make me salivate. By far my personal favorite. Locally as inexpensive as corporate hop water. Try it and you will love it!

Ensoniq (7) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 28, 2003 does not count
Roasted malts, good chocolatly taste... Very good porter.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
When in the mood for a porter I would say this is a pretty decent one. Very dark, medium body, a hint of smoke but no overwhelming characteristics. quite easy to drink for such a dark brew, enjoyable.
