bottle-best by mar 3,03. Thanks again to Whaleman for hooking me up with this high rated brew. pours a deep burgandy color when held up to the light. very very mild carbonation. Nice english toffee and chocolate aroma-slightly smokey. flavor is very similar to the appearance, but kinda thin i thought for such a high rated brew. I think alpha klaus takes the porter cake here.

Beautiful pore, black as coal. nice chocolate head with lots of cocoa aroma with roasted coffee scents. Hint of alcohol and a very small smell of citrus. Head didn't last long though, and neither did the beer! Mild taste of ashes and chocolate. Very nice porter!!

Beautiful dark chocolate color. Thin head, fine bubbles and lacing. Excellent roasted malt aroma-like a grainy cafe mocha. Tastes like it smells, perfectly balanced and very smooth with subtle, earthy Fuggles hop in the background, and roasted chocolatey malt flavor with touch of bitter coffee up front. No bad aftertastes. A model porter.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 This is a rock solid Porter and stands on top of the Porter hill for a reason. It pours a beautiful midnight black w/a good head, if a little thin with bigger bubbles than I'd expect and a bit weak on the lacing but that's just nit picking. Taste is a pleasure from the moment it hits your tongue. No harsh hop attack here, the bitterness only serves to compliment the fruit and roast undertones. It starts smooths and only gets smoother as it works it's way across you pallette. The finale is great with hints of an alcohol warmness (supprising for it's average ABV) that finishes the movement. Overall I'd highly remcommend this porter for any porter lover. This is one that even a Porter neophyte could love, not overly challanging but deep and complex. Two thumbs up!

A porter drinker's porter. Rich, smooth, chocolate notes, roasty malts.

Clear dark brown with ruby hints. The head diminshes quickly and is tan colored. Glass lacing is decent but not outstanding. The aroma is quite chocolately and a bit fruity, like a cabernet. The flavor is roasted malt and chocolate. The body is incredibly smooth! Quite yummy stuff.

Incredibly smooth porter, with a velvety taste to it. Lightly hopped with a nice chocolate taste that's not too overwhelming. Colour is blackish but has a dark ruby hue when held up to a light.

Nice dark brown black colour with a soft chocolate coloured head. Excellent mouth feel. Pleasantly roasty but it is not overpowering. Hints at chocolate. A nice porter that I will try again.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 great aroma, some specialty chocolate pastry. mm, the taste is a bit off to me though... it's a bit too acidic for me, strange, in a way that is similiar to great divide's saint brigid's porter. otherwise, there is a body too thin anyway, like killian's red. flavor: roasted coffee, chocolate/caramel. semi-sweet. hm, overrated? i'd rather have anchor's porter. UPDATE: i had this after a rogue chocolate sweet stout and i can say that this is definitely roasty and dark, smooth and cremey, chocolately and delicious. acidity? none. watery? yes. i'll bump it up a bit, seems like a gotta fair bottle :o)

Smells of wheaty rye bread and coffee notes. Beautiful dark brown color with small short head, but i poured it pretty cold. Deep coffee flavor with chocolate, rye and some dirt (but in a good way) hints.
