Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s Madison West. Pours a dark reddish brown with a thin head. Poor head retention. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, faint hops and a bit of a smoky note. The taste is chocolate, caramel, nutty notes, faint smoke and hops. Thin-medium bodied. Nice.

BVery (9172) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Nice dark brown pour with a good tan head that diminished fairly quickly. Initial aroma was roasty chocolate, but suddenly that disappeared and was replaced by a sour note. Palate is thin - even for the style. Taste is watery, slightly roasty, not offensive but pretty bland.

djd07 (8020) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with ruby hue and small off white head. Roasted malt aroma and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and metallic finish. Not too much going on with this one.

drowland (7726) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2010
8/12/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! The pour is brownish at first, but rather clear and red when held to the light. It has a decent light tan head that holds pretty well. The aroma has a hint of chocolate, but a huge amount of soapy caramels, and a big dose of bloody copper pennies... blech. The flavor is light chocolate, but mostly huge metal again, super light for the style, with a lingering hint of sweet caramel. They missed the mark here, I’m afraid.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Bottled. Poured cola brown with a nice initial dark tan head.. settled down fairly quickly. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and milk chocolate notes with slightly buttery character.. really quite pleasant. The flavor found about the same stuff.. milkier chocolates, vanilla, and some rolled oats at the core, with light, dry, earthy bitterness and residual sugars around.. very dry on the finish, carrying through mostly milky chocolates.. became muddled as it warmed up. Light-medium bodied and roasty on the palate.. this started out better than it finished.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 24, 2011
12oz bottle: Pours a clear a barely transparent dark mahogany with a thin, spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a toasty, nutty, light caramel malty nose with a touch of English hops. Starts with average fullness and light malty sweetness with some nutty flavor and lingering dark chocolate and doughiness in the finish. Pretty smooth and very drinkable.

Strykzone (6176) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
This porter is more opaque mahogany than the typical stout like appearance. A very small tan head. Aroma is malty with a bit of roasted nuts and some fruit. Is this really a porter? Flavor is caramel, sugar, and fruit. There is just a bit of spice. Are we sure this isn’t a brown ale? As a brown ale it is a pretty good beer but as a porter it falls well short.

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Draft at the Tied House. Deep brown-black with stained-glass red edges. Minimal oily head. Medium bodied sandy chocolate malt. Roasty, with a mild touch of amber malt underneath. Semi-thin, not a thick milkshake porter by any means.

JK (5565) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. A black beer, low carbonation. Mild roasted flavor with grain. A run of the mill porter, as a session beer. Dry, bitter finish.

Skyview (5422) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2009
On draught at the Grays Tied House in Verona, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head the dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, a touch of toffee, some flowery hops and a hint of roasted nuts. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of roasted caramel, some Brazilian nuts, a hint of flowery hops and some Ivory soap. Finish is watery, slightly crisp with no aftertaste. Definitely not the dark and roasted malt porters I am used to enjoy but maybe a decent light amber beer.
