JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Thick tan head that fades quickly over a ruddy-black liquid. Espresso aroma along with some bitter chocolate and toasted grain. I didn't find it tasted nearly as good as it smelled, although clearly I'm in the minority. The body was quite a bit thinner than I expected. Lots of coffee and burnt sugar in the mouth with a long roasty finish. Improved greatly as it warmed.

The first beer I've tried thats rated higher than 4 on this site. I gladly give it a consistent rating. Pours black as pitch but not nearly as thick. The small white head fizzles away shortly but leaves behind a fantastic bold roasty aroma. This beer balances a myriad of heavy flavors perfectly: fresh black coffee with a hint of chocolate and a hefty but not overpowering malt taste leaves you with a dry nutty finish. A wonderful beer, and I'm happy to have been lucky enough to try a fresh bottle for once.

Extremely black with tiny, tiny white head. Roasted sweet smell without being overwhelming at all. Fantastic tatse. Cold coffee, roasted nuts, chocolate... yummy as hell, I want more NOW! Good mouthfeel. Not too carbonated, which is fantastic, because this is a thick/filling beer. YUM, I want more now, super-drinkable.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 darker in colour, kind of rubyish with a thin white head lots of bubbles. The nose is very malty and robust. The taste is very bitter with a warm chocolate front.

It poured dark brown almost black color with a bit of a reddish tint. It had a great aroma of caramel, toasty, burnt sugar and coffee. In the flavor it had much of the same plus some nice fruitiness and a compexity that is hard to describe. It had enough roasted grain and hops to keep the sweeter tendencies under control. It was smooth and full of body and had a nice mouthfeel. It was a perfect balance of many flavors. Great porter

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 30, 2004
Aroma: Soft medium slow roasted malt brushed with hints of English bitterness. Dark brown, woody look, foamy head. Just right mix of bitterness with very nice malt. This Porter has great texture, good mouth feel. One of better balanced beers on the market. I can not stop to think of euro style full roasted coffee that used best selected grains. This porter is same. Highly recommended.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2004
Wow. In the words of Will Farrel, "Simply stunning!" It poured a deep brown, and a ruby when held to the light. A beige head developed and lasted for a while. An intense aroma of cappuchino assaulted me. I'm not a coffee drinker at all AT ALL, but this was just so good, that I might convert! Wow, I can't believe the amazing flavours and texture. This is A-Class stuff, no doubt about it!

ive had this in the the uk on tap, states in the bottle and on tap: its truly an amazing porter, this is a gold standard to me. bringing great british brewing together with a classic porter style. as we all know all the fuller beers are delicious and this is no exception. nice hoppy character with the blend of choc malt. go to chiswick in london and try it at the brewery...you wont be disapointed.

kathouse (916) - Nevada, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Dark mahogany coloring. Clear with a thin tan head and nice lacing. Aroma was very nice. Chocolate, malt, sweet caramel and a good balance of noble hops. Taste was lighter than I expected with a medium body and small bubbles of carbonation. Definitely dry with toasted malts and chocolate. Finishes well with a pleasant aftertaste. I'll buy again!

An excellent porter. Nice dark brown color with a large tan head. Excellent malty /roasty aroma matched by a balanced and rich flavor. No harshness here. Nice mouthfeel. Complex
