UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 Gorgeous dark ruby brown color. I wish women came in this color. Starts out with a bite of coffee liqueur, then hits some great flavor notes, including chocolate, raisins, rum, cherries and smoke. A prototype porter.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Black body that reveals garnet glints when held up to the light. Thick light brown head. Nose of sweet coffee, molasses and prunes. Taste of sweet coffee, brown sugar, prunes and raisons. Smooth mouthfeel. Though lacking in the bittersweet chocolate aroma and flavor I've come to expect from porters and stouts, this beer was very enjoyable

Dark almost opaque color. Very smooth and very good. Full bodied. Malty, coffee, chocolate flavors. The head left way too soon though.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Dark brown, thick tan head that didn't stick around. Impressive lacing. Big malty aroma with coffee notes. Taste is roasty malt with a bitter finish. A very good porter.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2003
Deep mahogany brown, thin tannish head that evaporated far to fast but leaves impressive sticky, spotty ink-blot lacing. Smell is deeply roasty/toasty malts with a slight burntness with notes of hazelnut, dark toffee, and coffee. Taste is a fair amount of roasted malts, burnt-like toast and coffee, a bit acidy in the middle into the end where a tiny little fruityness slips in, finishing with a hoppy mellow dryness that balances well. Feel is medium to thin in abundance, no real richness or heftyness to be found for my idea of a robust porter. Its a solid porter by many means and quite a good drinker, I was hoping for more though.

Frank (2727) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Pours a very dark garnet. Foamy head with a good bit of splotchy lacing. Nose is slightly bitter with a light touch of chocolate. Notes of bitter chocolate and coffee with a slight bit of astringency. Mouthfeel is smooth but a touch on the watery side with a healthy does of carbonation. Slightly bitter in the finish. Disappointing considering the high ratings it has here but still a very good porter.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Rich sweet nose on this one. Color is deep black with little head. Flavor seems to lack any real distinction to me beyond the malts. The texture here is very nice, smooth all around, with a slight chalky aftertaste.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2004 Bottle: Ligth brown head, black body. Aroma; liqourice, tar?. Full body, soft. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. Liqourice, coffee-bitterness and notes of smoke.... Cask: Seductive and impressive! Black colour with the most creamy head ever. Milk chocolate, liqourice, lightly raosted coffe beans and a balancing restrained bitterness. Full and very smooth. (8,5,8,5,18)

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Dark reddish/brown hue, small tan rocky head, some lacing, medium to full bodied. Heavy roasted malt aroma with hints of molasses, dark chocolate and espresso. Somewhat of a ruby port quality to it. Very nice. The flavor matches the aroma and has just enough bitterness to balance out the heavy malts. Beautiful mouthfeel, creamy and oily, soft carbonation and a moderate alcohol finish. Hint of smoke lingers on the palate. An exceptional beer.

Sort of a milk porter: very well balanced between malt sweetness and roast. No hops flavor. At first it reminded me of licking a cold BBQ grill, but in a good way.
