Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2005
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Bottle. Thin head with good lacing, body is a nice dark ruby. Light creamy, vanilla aroma. Taste is roasted coffee with just a touch of bitterness. Balanced sweetness with just a touch of vanilla. Hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety but a little too carbonated- the cask version blows this away, which is hard to believe because the bottle version is pretty darn good.

ReRate: Off the hand pump at Falling Rock. Thin head, very dark brown. Great aroma of toffee, molassis and roasted malts. Smooth, creamy palate. Taste is light roasted malts with tons of chocolate, some bitter hops coming through also towards the finish. Excellent, world class beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2005
Deep chocolate brown ale, light tan creamy head. An enticing and rich nose of roasted vanilla beans, milk chocolate, buttery toffee, oatmeal, and light coffee. The taste is practically the same as the aroma, with the lush roasty malt integrating almost perfectly with the back end hop bitterness. Medium bodied, pillow soft carbonation, silky,drying, bittersweet finish. Just an outstanding porter that everyone should try. Itís well deserving of itís high marks...

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 6, 2005
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of toffee, nuts, coffee, and a bit of smoke. Full, creamy feel. Full roasted coffee flavor, with some smokey, nutty notes. Great Porter.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Aroma of toffee, coffee, and something sour. Small tan head that dissipated quickly. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy. Strong coffee flavor, along with raisins, chocolate, figs and toffee. Very roasty, smooth and easy drinking. Extremely delicious, a beer I always find myself going back to. .

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Opaque, dark color with slight head, but nothing overwhelming. Strong sweet malty taste with hints of licorace, chocolate and dark roasted coffee. Definite roasted coffee bean notes as well as malted chocolate and just a bit of raisen in the taste. Very great beer...the tastes really work very well together with no particular note overpowering the others.

DerWeg (1590) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2005
UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 Refined graininess of barley malts roasted to varying degree, a handful more raw, others java-black. Aroma light sweet malt and medium chocolate. Taste bitter coffee and cocoa notes, terrific drinkable medium-full body and feel. Dark brown, fine beige head. 500 ml bottle just cool in a tumbler. Very good!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2005
Bottle. Tasty stuff indeed. Perhaps without the complexity of the cask version, but still nice, fairly full bodied, roasty porter, smooth, round. Lots of flavour, but not overly complex.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2005
Drink by 4-2-05. This poured a deep, dark brown (walnut). There was a lite brown head. The aroma had toasted malts, coffee grounds, nuttiness, and an almost creamy nose. Very full. The flavor was very mellow. Toasted malts, lite hints of espresso and chocolate that were more apparent as the brew warmed, and even a subtle sweetness. The body was very smooth and creamy. Held the flavors together very well. This was most drinkable! You could really have this as a session beer and/or drink all the time. Nice.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2005
Poured dark, dark black with a nice size tan head and good lacing. Aromas of chocolate and some licorice. I tasted major roasted chocolate with a hint of coffee and licorice. Not too complex, but brilliant. Smooth oily-watery feel, full bodied with light carbonation. This was the perfect compliment to live Jazz and comfortable chairs.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Coppery brown, slightly translucent body. Large creamy tan head. Rich sweet bourbon, chocolate aroma with some very light flowery hops? Flavor has the same bourbony chocolate body with a lactic acid and coffee finish. While its nice and full, it still seems to be missing something to complete it.
