I bought a six pack of this while on a visit to California. I wish it could be bought in Tennessee. Poured very nicely and had a great taste to it. When I visit again, will definately make another purchase.

This stuff is great! Dark and smooth,it has a nice roasty chocolatey taste to it. Slighty thin, but the taste more than makes up for it.

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.
