brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2005
Drink by 4-2-05. This poured a deep, dark brown (walnut). There was a lite brown head. The aroma had toasted malts, coffee grounds, nuttiness, and an almost creamy nose. Very full. The flavor was very mellow. Toasted malts, lite hints of espresso and chocolate that were more apparent as the brew warmed, and even a subtle sweetness. The body was very smooth and creamy. Held the flavors together very well. This was most drinkable! You could really have this as a session beer and/or drink all the time. Nice.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2005
Poured dark, dark black with a nice size tan head and good lacing. Aromas of chocolate and some licorice. I tasted major roasted chocolate with a hint of coffee and licorice. Not too complex, but brilliant. Smooth oily-watery feel, full bodied with light carbonation. This was the perfect compliment to live Jazz and comfortable chairs.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Coppery brown, slightly translucent body. Large creamy tan head. Rich sweet bourbon, chocolate aroma with some very light flowery hops? Flavor has the same bourbony chocolate body with a lactic acid and coffee finish. While its nice and full, it still seems to be missing something to complete it.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Pours clear and ruby, with a black look when tilted away from light. Supreme frothy tall off-white head. Sweet sticky lacing. Rich, rich coffee and tea aromas, backed with light chocolate and strong dark malt. A tiny waft of alcohol and cherries. Flavor begins mellow, with a light touch of honey and wheat. Finishes bitter and dry. Strong roasted malt smack and toast in the aftertaste. Very fine bubbles. Palate is sharp and smooth, but a little watery, yet leaving a lingering coating on the tounge. A much appreciated refreshing brew after a long day on the road.

steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Pours black with small creamy tan head. Nose is very chocolaty and of coffee. Sweet. Flavor is an explosion of robust maltyness with caramel, chocolate and a fine smokiness. Very satisfying. As it warms there is a pleasant bitterness that creeps into the finish.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Black with chestnut highlites supporting a creamy tan head and a good amount of lacing. Classic porter aromas of roasted malt, toffee, chocolate with some added hop aroma at the back of the nose. Flavor is smooth, well-balanced and follows the aroma but with some additional intensity. Those Fuggles hops canít be ignored and they add a nice bitter touch to the otherwise lasting but clean finish. There are a number of great porters out there but this one certainly deserves to be counted as one of the best.

carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Nutty, semi-sweet bakers-chocolate-like taste, thin head, but it is smooth and I will say this one does the trick when you canít find your favorite impossible to find world-class porter!

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 This is the only porter Iíve had. When I first opened it I thought "what the heck is that great smell?" Well Iím assuming its hops and this beer is GREAT. Iíve never had a beer quite like this. I drank it down fast and wished I had bought more. Big tan head, silky creamy mouth feel and great malt and hops flavor balance.....a must have. RE-RATE: Its still the best porter Iíve had. and Iíve had a bunch now.
