Lucky number 700! Iíve been meaning to try this one since the beginning, but finally picked it up to celibrate the end of the semester. Bold aroma and a beautiful pour. Strong with a coffee flavor to it. no bad aftertaste makes this beer smooth and nice. A winner.

masedawg (156) - Statesville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Dark brown with a small tan head. Nice lacing. Roasted coffee/chocolate aroma and taste delivers what it promises. Lingers nicely on the palate. Great beer.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
Very dark brown in colour. Smooth awith some nutty and chocolate malt. Iím not sure how close this is to victorian porters, but for a modern variation it is very good.

thebirdshow (27) - Burlington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Dark in nature, almost black. Not much of a head. Coffee and chocolate smell. This is a bold beer yet smooth. The finish was smooth for such a full taste.

tinydancer (52) - Gibsonville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Dark nearly black, opaque. Thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, malt, coffee. Smokey. Full bodied, slick. Flavor is of malt and coffee. Well balanced through and through. No poor aftertaste.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
One pint, 6oz brown bottle purchased from Armanettiís, Mundelein, IL. ABV 5.4%. Expiration date 8/29/05 and bottle opened 12/1/05 so beer already expired. Clear dark brown hued porter having diminishing off-white head with spare lacing. Complex aromas of chocolate, coffee, prunes, raisins, and toast. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied that starts dry with roasted malt and finishes dry with lingering light bitterness and expresso flavor. Though beer was expired, no notable off-tastes. Good drinkable porter.

larsga (7220) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2005
Small, tan, creamy head; black opaque body. Faint, roasty aroma. Deep, sweet, roasty taste, leading to an aftertaste of coffee and licorice. Very harmonic and balanced; not too complex. Great!

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Keg
Brown color, with a thick cap of brown foam. Hop and roasted malt in the nose, light note of coffee. Much better taste: roasted malt and coffee, cappuccino! Good body strength, and very interesting quality of malt, not too much on the bitter-roasted side. Good balance with a residual sweetness. The hop is completely overwhelmed in the body; it comes up later in the finish. Not complex, but a very good example of dark ale (stout?).

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pitch black, close to opaque, with a small, discreet head. Dark, burned flavours with a distinct bitterness that doesnít linger all that long though. 0040302

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Pours black as hell, with a huge, creamy tan head. Head dissipates down to a pretty respectable level. Yummy milk chocolate and malt aroma. Flavor is very heavy with coffee with cream, hazelnut, chocolate. Seriously, this is like an iced mocha from the coffee shop. Bitterness tastes like coffee bitterness. Finishes with cream and hazelnut, and some coffee bitterness. Mouth feel is good, but thiner than most porters Iíve had recently. Very good. Seriously, this is like desert.
