balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Pours a dark brown color with a red tint and a thick and creamy off white head. Cereal like aroma of malts with hints of toffee and roasted coffee. Very smooth body, little carbonation and a strong coffee flavor with bits of roasted malt and a nice underlying hoppiness in the finish. A bit thin of a body...but a better than average porter.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Pours black with thin dissipating head. Aroma is very sweet with lots and lots of carmel. Flavor is mostly of roasted malt. Finish is clean. Nice medium body. Smooth. No bitterness. Quite disappointing. Read SilkTorkís rating and youíll understand exactly what I mean.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Black color (only with direct light does a hint of ruby redness shine through) with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, with coffee, figs, oak, vanilla. Flavor is Malty, slightly sweet, chocolately, faint coffee notes. I admit that I am not usually a porter fan, but this is nice.

This is more of what british porters should taste like. A true benchmark brew.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2005
Pours a deep, dark reddish brown with virtually no head. Aroma of coffee and malt. Flavour is an explosion of complexity, coffee, roasted malts and general yumminess. Palate is faultless, smooth and rich. The archetypal porter.

Dark brown color, creamy head, slightly smoky and browny. In fact, this is all brown here. Cream and chocolate palate on a low carbonation and a slightly thin and grainy aftertaste. O.K. porter to me!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2007 (Rerate, prev 2005/1/22, 7-3-6-3-13) Near black colored, strongly roasted sweet aroma with licorice, chocolate and smoke, fine aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor starts with strong coffee and roastiness, ends with more dry tones. Burned malts last in aftertaste.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2005
This beer is well done, deserving of its high marks. Smelled of molasses and roasted malt. Poured a dark brown with a small, off-white and fizzy head. Taste = damn good; very roasted, with a prune/plum like quality underscoring the flavors. Enough said. Good beer.

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 30, 2005
Very dark brown with a tan head that subsides quickly leaving a ring of bubbles. Strong nose of roasted chocolate malt, molasses, some fruit (prunes). Rich flavour of chocolate, molasses, coffee and prunes. Smooth and very well balanced. Lingering bitter(just enough) hop finish. Mmmm... this is a delightful porter.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 29, 2005
A very nice chocolatety brew... typical English bitterness in the background balances the sweetness quite nicely. One to visit over and over again.
