Bottle - Poured a deep black brew with a nice head but lack some retention. Carbonation is average with a medium body (I was expecting a richer and ''fuller'' body). Aroma of chocolate is very subtle. Taste is a mix of roastiness, chocolate, and coffee with just enough bitterness at the end. Overall, this is a good beer but I still believe it might be a bit overrated.

Brown with a tan head, sweet malty aroma with traces of coffee and roast. Roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. Some smoke and saltiness? Very lightly acidic. Well rounded and tastey.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 Knowing that this beer is currently number 26 on the Top 50 list, I was quite anxious to taste it.
Pours a tall tan head on a dark brown body. Aroma is nice though a little weak, malty with tones of milk chocolate. The flavor is quite full and complex. Roasted malt, coffee and liquorice with a bitter hoppy finish. Definately a good beer but way overrated in my opinion!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2004 Wonderful color. Sitting down with this beer, I was expecting a better experience. Even though the beer was great, it lacked a certain ambience that one gets from other porters. Perhaps it was just the bottle I ordered. Greasy palate, kind of watery.

This is a beautiful beer! Everything from the aroma to the appearance to the wonderful chocolate creamy flavor. This is what a porter should be.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Deep, dark brown, almost black, with tinge of red. Foamy tan head. Luscious chocolate and coffee aroma and flavor. Rich, full-bodied mouth feel. An exquisite drink.

500 ml bottle. Deep, nearly black brown color, with a midsized brown-tan head. Not much lacing. Slighy watery looking. Smells very much like coffee, lots of roastiness, a bit of sourness. A tiny bit sweet. Tastes of some light fruity sweetness, roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate, a little bit more sourness, a touch of hops. Pleasing bitter finish. Mildly carbonated, and a little watery in the mouth. On one or two occasions, there's been something slightly off-putting in the aroma on some whiffs, but maybe it was just me, or the bottles were a bit off. Still, it's a really nice coffee-ish beer!

I was really surprised how good this beer was. I'm always a little biased against imported beers as they often seem to suffer on the voyage over, but this was about as good a porter as I could hope for. Well balanced, malty and enough bitterness to support it. Easy to find too which is a bonus. Just watch the best by date.
