Had this in a bottle at PF Changs in Phoenix. Nice, rich malts which were bold but not as complex as I might have thought given my expecations. Enjoyable and easy-drinking for a Porter.

This is the nectar of the gods. A great brew that just gets better every year. I love the use of the roasted malts. The chcolate flavors are also through out the beer and this is just a great beer for anyone to drink. One of the best beers I have ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Pours a dark nearly black with only the slightest tinge of ruby. The head is fairly large, fluffy, and off-white, and it has decent longevity. Nose is pleasent with hoclate, backed up by fig, vanilla, and slight roast. Flavor is started with a coffee roast flavor with the chocolate backing it up and the hop bitterness melding in to create a bitter sweet flavor. There really never is enough roast or hops to make it too interesting. Palate lively with a somewhat watery texture and a slightly less than medium body. Finish is short and chocolatey. Very easy drinking for a proter, but not really all that appealing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear mahogany with a creamy tan head. Light caramel and light roast aroma. Bocky flavor, very watery. Doesn’t come close to the porters I know and love. Astringent finish shows some syrupy sweetness but this is too thin to be any good.

Kind of thin, even for a mild porter. The aroma of this dark brown ale is mild, consisting of half coffee, half roasted barley. Pretty much the same in the flavor, the chocolate not showing up until the mildly sweet finish. Okay.
