jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2006
Obtained in a trade with beeryum. Dark ruby reddish brown with a medium tan head. Rich chocolate, mocha and hops in the nose. Wow, very bold and flavorful. Up front, the flavor has big notes of chocolate, coffee, ovaltine, roasted malt, a touch of charcoal, plenty of hops and rich caramel/toffee sweetness. Totally delicious. Perfect body for a porter; full, round and very creamy with lively carbonation (without being as thick as some stouts). Decent head retention, light lacing left on the glass. Overall, an amazing porter - one of the best I’ve had so far.

ebarnes (239) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours black but light still gets through. Thinner than other porters. Slight coffee aroma, more prevalent in the taste. Not bad at all.

Pours a dark brown/black. Small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Tastes the same. Medium bitterness in the end. A good porter.

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2006
12 oz bottle: Pours a blackish brown with a light-brown head that disappears fast with hardly any lacing. The malty aroma is roasty with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste matches the aroma with a smooth bitter finish. A well balanced beer!

Pours a very dark brown with amber highlights. Tan head with good retention. Aromas of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows aroma very well. Medium bodied. Very good.

CMUBEERMAN (421) - - JAN 12, 2006
This is a delicious porter. I went through a case of it last season. Very brown and lots of roasty flavors. Not so strong on the coffee or choco tastes, but it remains balanced.

In the bottle at Bill B.’s birthday party. Brownish-black in color with a nice off-white head. Head has a great fluffy staying power. Slightly roasted and slightly sour aroma. Lots of chocolate flavor. Smooth and balanced. A very good beer.

Odeed (1795) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 8, 2006
(trade by way of 1faststi)this porter was a deep see-through red in appearance,and had a tiny brown head.my nose picked up aromas of chocolate,coffee grounds,raosted malts,and fudge.the flavor was a nice mix of chocolate,coffee,fudge,and hops.the mouthfeel was a bit on the light side,and the palate was complex and long lasting.
