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.

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 (7691) - 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.

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.

This is not a bad beer at all...even considering that it comes from ole jw dundee’s selections... Pours with a nice sized light brown head...lacing is actually quite predominant...smell needs a lot of work...taste is nice and roasty.. MUCH better than one would think, and i have been off porters for a while, good stuff.. jw’s has been doing me over lately...

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Received via trade. Aroma was lactic, a bit sour, roasty, chocolatey and fruity somehow. Appearance is a deep brown color, off-white head. Flavor is roasty, caramel, molasses and some toffee with a slight sourness. Nothing horrible, but nothing special either.

Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 12oz bottle-Dark brown body with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and a slight aroma of coffee. Taste of roasted malt, coffee, and a little chocolate for this light to medium bodied brew. I was expecting something less and was suprised at this brew.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 Poured from a 12oz bottle, this brew looks like a glass of Coke without the ice: almost black. Nice caramel, chocolate, and roasted malt aromas but they were a bit faint. Sweet and lively in the mouth with a slightly bitter finish. This beer was way better than I expected.

Nice dark pour with some head and lacing. Good coffee/chocolate mix without being overly sweet.

OldGrowth (2757) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
Bottle, from trade with Goldtwins. Ok aroma, sweet, roasty, Lite fruitiness, banana, grape. Little cardboard, caramel, lite coffee. Clean orangy dark brown color, small head that faded quickly to a ring, little to no lacing. Bittersweet flavor, like aroma with a wheat bread addition. A little of a salty flavor that flattens some of the flavor. Lite body, smooth mouthfeel, lite bittersweet finish. Easy to drink porter, the fruitiness I got in the aroma disappeared as it warmed. Too bad as I found it to be the best part of the aroma. Classic porter otherwise
