12.11.04 bottle. Iíll be darned, this stuff is sneaky hard to find despite its gazzillion ratings. Deep maple colored brew with average tan head that lingers. The aroma is striking alike that of those Goetzeís creme filled caramel candies: lots of vanilla, cream, and caramel sugar. A bit on the nutty and sweet side with an earthy undertone. Not a terribly exciting flavor profile, but nicely balanced, certainly complex, and very likable. Alot of vanilla, nut, and milk in flavors; vinous, milk chocolate. Quick to finish with a nice bit if coffee bitterness and an alcohol trace.

Black body with beige head. Roasted aroma with some coffee and chocolate, hints of bitterness. Flavor is complex with both sweetness and bitterness in the taste.

gatsby15 (16) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Personal favorite: Beautiful chocolate colour, splendid hints of chocolate in the flavour and more that I am too inexperienced to really describe. Very smooth.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2004
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 Black, beige lasting head. Low carbonation. Roasted aroma with lots of licorice (and coffee). The flavour is dominated by licorice. Notes of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate. Some underlying malty sweetness balanced by a touch of fruit (black currants?). Dry rather short finish. Smooth, velvety palate. Allmost sticky. Archtypical London Porter. Perhaps a lack of depth?

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 The bottled version nearly holds up to the cask version. There are some notes absent though, such as the fresh coffee aroma that greets you in a perfectly poured and conditioned pint. Apart from that it has all the complexity and enjoyment of the fresher version.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2004 Pours black with a smallish head. I was struck by the uniqueness of the aroma--roasty, chocolatey, and thereís something else in there I canít put my finger on. But I like it. Very good slightly roasted, mostly sweet flavor a tad smoky in the finish. If only one porter could exist, Iíd want it to be this one.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Great stuff, vineous scent and plenty of mocha. Highly drinkable in that itís not harshly carbonated and just the right amount of bitterness. Seems like a great, solid-quality beer, although Iíll need to try some more porters for comparison.

FtWorthBrew (105) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2004
Pours black as mud. looks thick and has trouble keeping a head. Suprisingly its very carbonated when you take a mouthful. Very creamy. A very unique porter. chocolate and savory. In no way sweet. very interesting beer. Try this one.

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 1, 2004
This is good. Very good. Lots of roasty chocolate flavors in this one, as expected. Very well-balanced, almost creamy texture. Got to give credit where credit is due.
