Excellent porter. Very well balanced with chocolaty, coffee, vanilla, roasted malt and a touch of bitter. Finishes as smoothly as it starts.

Tmoney99 (12045) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle. Poured a dark black with an average rocky light brown head that lasted most of the brew. Aroma was heavy roasted malt with a chocolate tone. Flavor was complex with the same roasted moderated sweet but moderate average bitter finish. Medium to full body with creamy texture. Very good brew.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle. Best Before Aug 29 2005. Pours with an inch thick head made up of large bubbles on the sides, and rocky creamy bubbles on top. The head fell to something that looks a lot like a dense nitro head. Aroma is quite robust, vanilla, both pale and dark malts show through, clean earthy chocolate and coffee, ever the slightest notes of alcohol, a touch of hops to that meld with the underlying sweetness to make somewhat of a bittersweet aroma. In the flavor is where some toffee and dark chocolate note hit you. Beer finishes with a lasting bitter roastyness. Body is quite thin, but very sticky with flavor. Very good. Deserved of the high rating. Excellent dark beer.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle poured black with thick off white head and good lacing. Light aroma of sweet roast malt and chocolate. Good light medium body, easy drinking with a roasty, coffee flavor and burnt malt finish.

kibbs (10) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
My first taste of Porter was a good one. The almost black color and the chocolate nose, with the smokey chocolate and coffee flavour. This has become a staple in my fridge.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2005
The pour is almost black with a red glow. Nice frothy tan head that gives off a malty almost chocolate aroma. Light and creamy to drink chocolatey sweet with roasted coffee flavor. Just bitter enough on the finish to make you say wow what a great beer! This is one delicious beer a beer that I have a can truly say I love!

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2005
Great presentation consisting of a dark brown pour with a very creamy head. The aroma is highly complex with soy, caramel, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. As far as the taste the soy was overpowering for me. Perhaps the bottle I had was sitting to long. The Sam Smith Porter had soy in it as well. Perhaps I will learn to like that aspect of Porters. Right now I donít.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Bottle. Thin head with good lacing, body is a nice dark ruby. Light creamy, vanilla aroma. Taste is roasted coffee with just a touch of bitterness. Balanced sweetness with just a touch of vanilla. Hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety but a little too carbonated- the cask version blows this away, which is hard to believe because the bottle version is pretty darn good.
Earlier Rating: 4/26/2002 Total Score: 4.3
ReRate: Off the hand pump at Falling Rock. Thin head, very dark brown. Great aroma of toffee, molassis and roasted malts. Smooth, creamy palate. Taste is light roasted malts with tons of chocolate, some bitter hops coming through also towards the finish. Excellent, world class beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2005
Deep chocolate brown ale, light tan creamy head. An enticing and rich nose of roasted vanilla beans, milk chocolate, buttery toffee, oatmeal, and light coffee. The taste is practically the same as the aroma, with the lush roasty malt integrating almost perfectly with the back end hop bitterness. Medium bodied, pillow soft carbonation, silky,drying, bittersweet finish. Just an outstanding porter that everyone should try. Itís well deserving of itís high marks...

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 6, 2005
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of toffee, nuts, coffee, and a bit of smoke. Full, creamy feel. Full roasted coffee flavor, with some smokey, nutty notes. Great Porter.
