desurfer (1245) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Body is a nice garnet, head is tan and small. Aroma of toffee, butterscotch, bitter coffee, and some chocolate. Flavor has notes of bakers chocolate and caramel, a lot of coffee roastiness, but the palate is quite thin. Finish is dry and sweet. Rather disappointing.

Medium to full body. Creamy mollases,coffee,chocolate. Good head that quickly diminishes. Soft carbonation and long bitter finish. Almost as good as Sam Smith Porter.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 (12 oz bottle) Pours almost completely opaque ruby with almost no head at all. Smells strongly of sweet malts and cocolate. Caramel and roasted malts rule the taste. Good bitter finish. A little to sweet.

Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2005
Iíve had this both on tap and in bottle. Delicious either way, but prefer tap. less carbonation on tap and the flavors are mellowed out too.Very dark porter (atleast darker and richer than St. Peters Old Time Porter) Earthy hazelnut, caramel, mild chocolate notes. Mild bitterness, nice finish. Cheers!

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Roast, chocolate and caramel w/ a slight hint of citrus on the nose... and the same on the mouth, this beer poured a deep brown color w/ purple/red hues; thin lasting head and lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy, but slighly watery, well-rounded and full.

bierfinder (10) - College Station, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Pours a very dark brown, aroma of molasses with a hint of coffee. Very dark in a glass, head keeps well, very balanced flavor or strength and bitterness. No lingering after-taste like some domestic (USA) porters. Best Porter I have had to date.

A smokey chocolate wonderful, Iím a pale lager lover, but this may change everything. I figured I perferred stout to a porter, but this porter...mmm this porter

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
Bottled. When I first tasted this beer cask conditioned, it turned my world upside down, regarding how a porter could taste. On bottle it is not nearly as good, but still excellent. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is full of caramel and roast. Good carbonation. Very smooth session porter, evenhough it is a bit on the sweet side.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Much stronger orange tint than the average porter. Typical pleasant aroma, with a strong element of cocoa - but in the sense of Nestle Quik as opposed to "real" cocoa. Flavor is definitely more complex than the typical porter. Here the Quik element is gone and smoky malt flavors meld with TRUE cocoa elements and great bitter fuggles. Finish is crisp and refreshing.

LutzBrau (43) - iowa city, Iowa, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Dark dark red, roasted malty molasses aroma is nice. Smooth creamy mouthfeel...damn...the bottles empty already! Well balanced with a mildly tart roasted coffee finish. Definitly my favorite Porter, but not my favorite kinda brew.
