UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Bottle. Pours brown\black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and slight hops to the nose. Flavor is sweet upfront, caramel, coffee-like, roast, with slight bitter finish. Good body, good brew.

From bottle
Dark, opaque pour. Bubbly tan head. Aroma of malt and roasted coffee. Flavor of malt, chocolate, caramel, and toffee. Hop bitterness in the end, but not overpowering. Medium mouthfeel. Creamy and smooth going down.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Very rich porter. Poured a reddish black with a thick, lasting, tan head. Chocolate malt is the dominate force here, a slight amount of sweetness to round out the flavors. There is a substantial hop bitterness but not much hop flavor. Nicely filling and satisfying.

Strong robust aroma. It gives a false impression of an overwhelming taste. It was actually very easy to drink. Hints of coffee, prunes, and chocolate. The bitter is perfectly balanced with the sweet. Finishes like a dry wine. Iíd buy this again and again.

Well, this was a really disappointing porter. Poured ok - dark brown with a minimal tan head. Rather flat and a little waxy mouthfeel. A little bland - a little malt and a hint of coffee, I suppose - but it just didnít reach out and grab me.

Mumpu (46) - USA - MAR 20, 2006
Pours very dark but not completely opaque with a foamy head that very rapidly degenerates into some lace. Aroma of roasted coffee and malts. Medium-bodied and smooth. Opens with a touch of malty sweetness followed by not much else and mere traces of hops. I found it to be disappointingly and exceedingly bland.

Quite dark, minimal head retention, does produce a good lacing on a pint though. Aroma is what Iíd expect a porter to be: roasted, a hint sweet, and a touch earthy. Taste is well balanced, can pick out the roasted malts along with the balancing hop presence. A favorite.

sunevdj (3949) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2006
Pours like Coca Cola with a tanned foamy head. Bitter with lots of coffee with hints of vanilla. Slightly sour in the finish.

mddawso (89) - Normal, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2006
bottle: This beer has a near perfect appearance and aroma. It pours completely opaque with a tan head. Creates brilliant lacing as the beer is being drank. The beer feels incredibly smooth and filling in the mouth. The carbonation is perfect. The taste has chocolate and coffee flavors. Absolutely incredible porter.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 Bottle. Been looking for this one for a while. Pours a Very dark brown with minimal tan head that dissapears in little time. Aroma is of roasted malts and coffee with chocolate and some caramel. The carbonation on the tounge is the first thing thats noticeable. Flavor is much like the aroma of roasted malts and coffee with some dark chocolate. Finishes with a nice roasted coffee flavor. My only reservation is that it seems a little over carbonated, but definitly a great porter anyhow.
