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.

WOW! This is one hell of a porter! Strong chocolate and coffee aroma. Very dark brown color with small tan head. Good Choc. expresso taste with a little hint of berrys. Awesome

This is a perfect porter. If you are one of the lucky ones who is able to get this on tap (try the Goat Hill Tavern in Costa Mesa, CA), you'll wonder why it's not available in more locations. Excellent chocolatey flavor - a treat for Maltheads everywhere!

deep ruby color with a medium/small tan head. coffee and licorice, with a little chocolate maltiness in the nose. very buttery and creamy body, malt backbone with some residual bitterness at the end. however, i would like it to be thicker. finish is extremely smooth with a pleasant aftertaste. if not the best, one of the best porters i've had.

Dark black with a huge ass walnut color head. Aroma of walking through a forest where it just rained and there is a bakery baking fresh bread. A very nice smooth chalky nutty base, smooth like a fucking criminal with a solid foundation of nuts .

Dark, dark amber brown. Aroma is beautiful caramel, butter, slight dark fruit (rasin/plum), hints of coffee. Flavors match the aroma without the fruit sweetness. Killer coffe notes. Nice mild bitter finish. Best porter I've had.

What a great porter! Excellent roasted malt aroma and flavor. Extremely well done porter that borders on the porter/stout line on flavors. This is one of the best porters I have ever had, give me more!

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Thick tan head that fades quickly over a ruddy-black liquid. Espresso aroma along with some bitter chocolate and toasted grain. I didn't find it tasted nearly as good as it smelled, although clearly I'm in the minority. The body was quite a bit thinner than I expected. Lots of coffee and burnt sugar in the mouth with a long roasty finish. Improved greatly as it warmed.
