wpp83 (64) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Poured a dark ruby with a large soapy tan head. Aroma was of roasted malts, cocoa, and coffee. The flavor was excellent. Man what a beer. My mouth watered when I saw it, and even more so after the first taste! Very malty, lots of rich dark chocolate flavors and a mild hint of coffee, among other less describable perfections. The palate was very smooth with a good bit of carbonation. Slightly dry bitter finish. The only thing that would make this beer better would be me not having a cold and being able to experience more of the taste which is amazing. Wow, what a beer.

Opaque color, medium expresso head slowly vanishing. Sweet raisin aroma. Medium-bodied. Coffee flavor, roasted. Long chocolaty aftertaste. Expected fuller body.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2004 A beer best enjoyed after a solid, filling meal, replacing both coffee and cognac. Very dark, very filling and strong. The perfect companion for a restful evening.

Black with a big head. Smoky aroma from coffee and chocolate. Flavor brings coffe, milk chocolate and some licorice. Smoky and with a bitter finish.

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2004
Bottle: Pours a dark coffee like colour, with a medium beige head. Has a strong coffee smell with a mild sweet molasses background. Initail Malt flavour with a chocolate aftertaste. Has a watery bitter finish. Overall an excellent brew!

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2004 Iíve never had a porter before so I wasnít sure what to expect. It pours cola colour and smells of caramel a bit malty and a bit of a sweet coffee. Smooth taste, slight carbonation on first taste... but gets even smoother after that. Great! Even better on re-rate after having a fantastic Mill Street Porter.

Nice roasted malt taste with just a subtle hint of bittler dark chocolate. I was actually a little surprised at the level of bitterness. Very flavorful. However I think I like Fuller’s 1845 a little bit better overall.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Color: a somewhat clear russet brown, head: 1/2" of toasted tan. Nose is on the burnt side, very roasty and sharp, bitter, hot, with flavors of pepper and espresso. Mouthfeel is warm, texture is smooth, hops are hard to notice. Malt stands up proudly, though, in all itís lushly roastedness. This is quite a consumable porter, a very flavorful session ale, to say the least. Finish is sweet and nutty, and lasts just long enough. A darn good porter.

The attractive bottle poured forth an equally attractive nearly-opaque black brew capped by a moderate creamy tan head. The luscious aroma contained hints of dark fruit, plum, and rich coffee, but was most strongly reminiscent, in my opinion, of delicious buttery bread toasting in the oven. Yum. The flavor had all of the above and more; a sublime blend of dark chocolate, espresso, and roasted breadiness delivered in a delicately sweet package. Full and creamy in the mouth. A truly awesome beer, and most certainly my favorite porter to date.
