This is the kind of beer I hope to bring home everytime I venture out to try a new brew. Smells wonderful, but more importantly tastes great!!! This is a multi-faceted flavor. Very layered and complex. Wonderful.

Great from the first to last drop. I reallyd donít have anything to add to what has been said, fully agree with chocolate/caramel/capucino notes in the beer though, malty, tremendously smooth and complex, you can point out several different tastes after holding it in your mouth a few seconds, with a quick slurp it is slightly roasty in mid palate into a malty smooth capucino taste. Best part is the finish. Best slightly chilled.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2002
The deep-colored body resembles worcestershire sauce. Head diminishes rather quickly. Lovely, subtle coffee and chocolate flavors, with a proper amount of hoppy dryness in the finish. As it warmed, the flavor profile changed significantly, towards a sharp bitterness. I prefer this one a bit cooler than most porters, where the full body of the malt is most prominent.

A good porter with a good roastiness, but Iíve definitely soured on the whole porter style, as even a good example leaves me wishing I had ordered something else.

Black aroma in a bottle. God head, not so creamy. Mild bitterness. Very smooth and delicious.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 RERATE 10/07: Dark red body, nice light tan head, light chocolate nose. Creamy, roasty, chocolate with mild bitterness and a coffee finish. Very nice. I gave this a 4.4 when I was young and naive and will not change it now.

turtlehead (111) - Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 22, 2002
This is a roasty, toasty, burnt porter. I tried it at 58 degrees F and noticed a big bitter aroma. This beer comes across tart, almost astringent, with a pleasant bitterness and chocolate aftertaste. I will say that the price keeps me from buying it often, as there are many local micros with good porters, but nevertheless, a great beer. As another note, I do wish the beer had a little more body to balance the flavor and hops. Cheers!

A true world class porter. Black, chocolately, malty, not too sweet and mildly bitter. Every time I imbibe it reaffirms that this is indeed my favorite porter.
