UPDATED: APR 25, 2004 Very good. Poured dark with a lot of bubbles. Practically no head developed when I poured it. Very rich taste. This is a great porter. For some reason, I think this brew tasted better straight from the bottle...

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Pours a dark dark mahogany color with a little red tint. Head is absolutely gorgeous--2-3 cm tan that persists and is with large bubbles. Beautiful lacing. Probably the best looking beer ive had to date. The aroma is a roasted coffee one. The start feels a little over cabonated and maybe a little bit watery, but I dont think this is the case, seeing I just got done drinking a DFH WWS. Taste is amazing. Very roasted coffee taste. Very pleasant to drink. I know why this has such a great score.

Pours beautifully into the pint glass, and then into my mouth. Nice dark brown, with great lacing. I smell roasted grains, a pleasant and welcoming nose. Very smooth, with strong hints of coffee, ending with sweetness. A very very tasty beer.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Draught at The Bishops Arms, Gothenburg, Sweden. Very dark with a lovely head. A lot of aroma from coffee, chocolate and prune. A very smooth, soft and fresh palate. Smoky flavour with chocolate.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Poured a dark reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy light tan head. Roasted chocolate aroma with some dark fruits as well. Slight chocolate and roasted malt taste. Creamy mouth feel.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 26, 2003
Amazingly smooth and drinkable porter, a world classic. Deep brown color and quite small fluffy head. Lots of black chocolate, malt and coffee in the aroma and palate. The Porter.

Hearty porter, I sampled it in Upstate NY on a camping trip. They told me it was the last set they had as their distributor was stopping shipment of it. Hearty and delicious, a meal in a glass. For a porter, it was pretty heavy feeling in the mouth. A little pricey (12 for a 6 pack where I was) and possibly impossible to find now brings it down in my ranking a little. For a lot less money, I can sacrifice flavor and pick up a 6er of Yuengs.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2004 Totally awesome. Very dark pour, full retentive head. Roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. Velvety mouthfeel. Perfectly made. So good...

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2004 Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark brown liquid that, when held up to light, can be seen through with a generous, off-white head that quickly collapses leaving a thin film of head. Aroma is of very, very rich coffee with a touch of sweet molasses. Flavor is a creamy smooth malty coffee with a faint peanut character. Absolutely no hop flavor detected - a big plus. The beer is incredible, outstanding - WOW!! This beer can be sipped or quaffed in mouthfuls with reckless abandon. No alcohol flavor/aroma detected. Smooth and creamy, although the head needs to be more substantial, and the beer could benefit from being opaque - otherwise it is perfect. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bottle- "Best By" date:April 27 2002. Poured on 7-17-03. Fantastic smelling blackish-red liquid with thin khaki head, smells absolutely marvelous, coffee and hops, tastes the same with a bit of raisen and a touch of wine. Very very nice. Perhaps my favorite beer EVER.
