12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark, reddish brown color with a minimal tan head. Chocolatey, roasted malt smell. Medium bodied with a nice smooth mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. Has a rich, hearty roasted grain flavor with a mild chocolate sweetness. Yet another tasty Porter from Full Sail.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a nearly opaque brownish black with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and light coffee. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee with a smooth lingering bitter finish.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Arome was espresso and some caramel. Flavour starts full, with coffee and caramel sweetness and only gets a touch of hop bittterness on the finish.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Wow. Very nice. Canít believe this doesnít rate higher. Extra dark brown coloring, with one of the darkest colored heads Iíve ever seen. Bitterness comes from the mocha/coffee flavors, and the aroma is the same, but not too much.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Beer pours dark brown with a well retained beige colored head and some light lacing. Aroma is really too underwhelming. Very modest notes of chocolate and coffee and a little dust. Flavor improves upon the aroma rather significantly. Nice cold coffee flavor with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Good beer.
