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.

10+ for aroma...soy sauce...BEST EVER! Black with off-white head. Flavor was of burnt coffee and chocolate. This is a great beer... my only complaint is that it was just a little too burnt tasting... don't read too much into that though because this is one of the best beers I have ever had!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
(sampled draught at Bishops Arms, Stockholm, Sweden) Dark brown, almost black with creamy pale brown head. Coffeish aroma with some gentle hops, dark chocolate and smoke. Flavour is awesome; black coffee, cacao with a pleasing bitterness of soy and english hops. A great and complex porter.

Chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar, and sweet malt give this reddish brown porter its fragrance. It doesn't have much head, but has a nice, small lace. Starts sweet on the tongue, but finishes with a medium hoppy bitterness. Clean but slightly alcoholic finish. Creamy, thick. This is a wonderful beer--quite possibly one of the top five or ten in the world.

I prefer a bit more hop in my porter. This was definately creamy and smooth especially on hand pump. Since I also prefer a bit more carbonation this was not gonna score high for me.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - AUG 6, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2003 A red brown color. It has a very small cream-colored head and big bubbles. The smell is coffee, malt, and milky. Super smooth and creamy with exaggerated coffee flavors. Did I say creamy! It's like having some very good dark coffee and milk, but with a malt and alcohol kick. Excellent!
