IndianaRed (2765) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Bottle Pours a nearly opaque light brown. with a small light tan head. Nice soft woody cohocolate aroma. Light roasted and leathery. Flavor is of light chocoalte and of wet brown paper bags. The kind that I used to take my lunch in in 3rd grade. Not totally unpleasant, but earthy and wood pulp. Light bittrerenss that is balanced, and easy to put down. Not bad.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Deep,deep ruby-brown with a decent creamy-frothy beige head. Fair porter smell, dry roast coffee, hints of cocoa and nutshell, light dry hops - a little syrupy. The taste is light, lactic and a bit like cola syrup with bitter and dry elements. Average body, dry and silky mouthfeel, quick finish, not much alcohol, and an overly bitter aftertaste.

JFGrind (1895) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Description on the bottle identifies this beer as a Porter, Ale and Malt Liquor with 6.5% ABV. Aroma of molasses, coffee, and roast malts. Imperial-ish Pennsylvania style (think Yuengling) Porter with middle of the road porter qualities. I liked JW Dundees Porter, its a drinkabke porter with a notched up alcohol level.

A straight average porter, almost right down the center. slightly roasted, coffee bitter and maltness presence. for a casual drink

wcampbell (721) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Almost a good porter, but the flavor is too weak and the finish is watery. No hop flavor or aroma. Typical roasted malt taste. Easy to drink and light bodied for a porter.

Canadianlush (169) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Good Porter overall, full of coffe flavor, roasted nuts and dark malts. But the head disappears way to fast and like other JW beers, instead of the bold bitter taste of hops I’m left with a watery finish instead of strong flavor. Still Tasty but could be so much more.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2007
aroma of malt and....beer. but that’s about it. flavor is milk chocolate and mild coffee with a strange acidic component most likely from the high carbonation. slightly bitter finish to this light bodied yet creamy brew. surprisingly good drinkability and they go down quick!

Fin (8181) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle in a mixed box from Majestic, 01-06-07. Pours dark brown with a tan head, some coffee and roasted notes, smoother creamier taste than expected but still with a pleasant bitterness and coffee flavours ringing through.

SSSteve (3917) - - MAY 26, 2007
black with a large creamy brown head. has that cheap grainy with mild roast, maple, macro porter aroma. flavor has lots of coffee notes and sweet milky chocolate. a big surprise! nice and creamy. i agree with mr. suds. flavor scores big points but aroma suffers.
