UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Huge chocolate, roasty aroma. Clear dark ruby-brown with off-white head that diminishes to cover with some patchy lace. Chocolatey sweet upfront subsumed with roasted malts. Lingering mocha coffee in the finish. Perfect balance between sweet chocolate and roasty bitterness. Body is medium but feels fairly light and refreshing in the mouth perhaps due to low carbonation. Easy to drink. This may be the quitessential Porter. Bottle. Thanks OKBeer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Pours a nice black color with a light tan head that leaves moderate lacing. Amazing aroma of chocolate and coffee. This brew has a great sweet start with chocolate tones and ends rather bitter.

Pailhead (5075) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Bottle: Aroma is dark chocolate and vanilla. Pours a dark brown (actually dark reddish brown with a little tranparency if held to the light) with a small tan head that doesnít really last. Flavor is a nice blend of chocolate and vanilla that finishes with roasted coffee . Coffee aftertaste. Nice smooth mouthfeel. A very good porter.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2009 Bottle. Very dark brown beer with a big beige head. Aroma of vanilla hits you right away followed by a richer chocolate and a slight roastiness. Roasty flavor thatís light and creamy. Very easy to drink. Thereís a light bitterness on the tongue. Low carbonation. Nice balance and an extremely well made beer.

Strong aroma of roasted malts, licorice and coffee. Dark brown-black coloured with a thin off-white lasting head. Taste is again those roasted malts, coffee in perfect balance with some liquorice. Creamy and very smooth mouthfeel. Absolutely great brew.

shameusburp (171) - Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Great porter, very poundable but expensive date at 5.4% ABV. Evenly balanced, a great training porter.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Pours an almost opaque dark brown. Very subtle aroma of chocolate, malt and coffee. Taste is very mild as well, smooth. Not as rich as I had hoped. Quite good, though.

phiconners (149) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Sweet aroma. Not as dark as some porters, but it grows on you. Slight smokiness in the flavor. Overall the flavor was not quite as strong as I had expected. A very nice porter nonetheless.
