UPDATED: MAR 12, 2004 Mmm...this is porter! Dark brown color, with a small off-white head. Both aroma and flavor contains a well balanced mix of coffee and milk-chocolate and still it does not get too much of the same as with other porters. Well balanced indeed! Yummy yummy!!

This was a great beer all around. From the dark brown color, to the coffee and chocolate aroma I wanted to drink this beer right away. I wasnt dissapointed either. Excellent flavor and feel. Finished well. Can't wait to try some more.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2003
Dark brown with a small tan head. Smells like coffee and chocolate. Smell as if you were walking into a coffee store. Medium body. Taste sweet and coffee more like a stout.

One said "Smells like opening a bottle of chocolademilk". Pours with a fine lacing head. Flavor has first chokolade and later a little laqurice. Great bitterness.

Wow, this beer alone has made Porter high on my list. It had a great aroma of caramel, toasty, burnt sugar and coffee. In the flavor it had much of the same plus some nice fruitiness and a compexity that is hard to describe. I think burnt marshmallow was in there. It had enough roasted grain and hops to keep the sweeter tendencies under control. It was smooth and full of body and had a nice mouthfeel. It was a perfect balance of many flavors. This is one to try.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2003
(Bottle) Thin, beige head and deep red/balckis body. Slight aroma of sweet malt. Flavours of charcoal malt with botter smoked finish. Good.

xmandax (130) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2003
beautiful in the glass, a deep brown almost black colour with a nice bubbly tan head. aroma is mostly smooth caramel malts. chocolate and caramel malts in the flavor with a slight taste of the distinctive fuggles hop flavor. nice full body without being too stickily sweet and syrupy. smoked finish. excellent example of a porter.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2011 Original Rating, 3/25/2003: Looks wonderful, nice and black with just a little head. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Lemme taste the goods... oh yeah... thatís the stuff. Heavy on the malt, definite chocolate. Wow, this is THE porter. I must find a place that sells large quantities of this. Truly a marvelous beer. 9/5/8/5/18

Re-rating, 10/29/2011: "THE porter... Truly a marvelous beer." Sweet Loki... This is why itís important to go back and revisit those beers from your early experiences. Dark reddish brown color with a medium head. Light coffee and fruity aroma. Bitter chocolate/cocoa flavor. Light roast notes. Slightly chalky. Medium mouthfeel. Nowhere near the Nirvana I initially thought this was, but better than I expected the downfall to be. 6/5/7/3/14
