Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2005
12 oz. bottle: Transparent deep brown with ruby/amber hints, mostly sustaining tan head. Aromas are of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is similar, lots of coffee and cocoa. A nice beer that can be found almost anywhere.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle. Dark, ruby-brown, with a small tan head. Aroma is very roasty, with strong coffee and chocolate. The flavor is very rich and roasty, with a taste similar to the aroma. Has a slightly roasty bitter finish. I would like a little more carbonation and the flavor could be a tad bit more solid. Great beer though.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle. Foamy brown head that was nice but faded too quickly, leaving a bit of lacing. Strong shot of espresso flavor and bitter chocolate. Very smooth, with flavor washing over and no irritating carbonation. Would like some more body, but great all around.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2005
pours a deep dark brown, with a foamy layer of tan head that clings on the sides of the glass. aroma is engulfing, i could smell the coffee and chocolates from about 8 inches away, and upon further inspection, found some brown sugar and a tad of molasses. amazingly smooth texture, very creamy and silky, but not a very full body, creating a kind of oxymoronic palate. flavor is very nicely balanced, the coffee coming on early and also again late, with a generous amount of sweet chocolate and candi sugar through the middle. just a tad hoppy in the finish, but the smoothness is just amazing.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Pours dark brown/mahogany with a very thick frothy off white head. Pleasant chocolate/coffee/cappuccino aroma. Flavours are just as good, once again coffee and chocolate. Only downside: I found the finish a bit tart. Very good stuff.

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Pours a dark brown color. Smells of chocolate and roasted coffee hit the nose. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. A bit of cherry flavor sneaks itís way into the whirlwind of flavors. A great porter!

thehinge (284) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2005
A dark brown pour that with a small off white head....does have some lacing. Aroma has hints of chocolate and caramel. Taste is like a big shot of strong coffee and chocolate. Very good.

blankboy (6634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with an average light brown creamy head -- it looks great. Aroma and flavour consist of mainly chocolate and coffee with some roasted malts. Flavour is lightly bitter and sweet. This is one of my favourite readily-available beers, I try to always have some in stock. A top-notch Porter.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 Dark black body with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolately and creamy. Flavor is the same, some cocoa in there as well. Very little roast and coffee. Light bitterness. Last time I had this it felt a lot smoother and had a much more creamy feel. It came out as it warmed but not to the same extent. Downgraded from a 4.5/5. Still a great Porter.

Gmku (296) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Standard by which I rate all other porters. Just heavy enough, with great chocolate flavor and hint of cherry under that. Like candy in a bottle. I get tired of it after a while, drink this just a bit in winter. But itís very good.
