COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich dark ale with its complex range of flavors and exceptionally smooth finish is a true reward after a long day at the old grind. Ah porter...

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2004
What’s with all the new brewery stuff on the shelves lately that are so-so at best? I’m thinking this brewery and Prohibition line in particular. Pours a dark brown with a little bit of a head and some lacing. Scent is roasted dark fruits and coffee. Flavor is sour and kind of like peat on top of the caramel/coffee, but it’s weak. Both the flavor and the palate are very thin. Overall, save your money.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2004 Bottle pours dark brown, mediocre sandy colored head, with slight lacing.   Heavy coffee and roasted malt aroma.   Forwardly roasted malts, slight coffee, but it quickly subsides by the finish.   Body and mouthfeel are somewhat thin.   Only wishing this one was more flavorful on the finish.   This one seemed to be more of a Dark Ale crossed with a Porter.   Not bad, but not as heavy for a Porter as I would have liked.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Not much aroma. Medium body. Taste is a little roasty, but has a background sourness that kind of puts the beer off. Not much going on.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Red/brown coloring, thin white head around the rim, chocolate/coffee aroma, dry dark chocolate finish, sweet chocolate malts, lightly carbonated, very slight hop flavor in the initial taste, palate is a little thin, but it makes for a smooth swallow, this was the last beer I had out my Hair of Dog tulip that fucking Frankenstein destroyed in a rage last night.

Very dark brown color with a small beige head. Very roasty aroma with a bit of moldy swamp. Very roasty chocolate flavor with a slight metallic aftertaste.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Dark brown, transparent, with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor were dominated by a sickening swampy, moldy character...YUCK! I could detect some roasted, chocolatey tones in there, but I could not shake the feeling that this beer was made with swamp water.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2004 #565 on my beerwall. Pours nice and dark with a small off white head that falls quick. Aroma is filled with chocolate. The beer initially tastes sweet and chocolaty then the hops come in after to back it up. After i was left with a metallic taste in my mouth.
