jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2006
Pours a dark reddish mahogany with a a creamy tan head, mostly diminishing, with a fine long lasting lacing. The aroma is of coffee, carmel and roasted malt. Very creamy and full bodied; a rich feeling on the palate. Great long lasting finish, leaving a slightly burnt malt taste, but crisp and very mellow. Nicely carbonated. A great accompaniment to any hearty fare, including steak, burgers, brats, or stew.

oh6gdx (22398) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber/rubyish colour, small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and mild roast. Flavour is strong roast along with chocolate, coffee and some citrus. The citrus fruits comes at first, then turns dark chocolate and roast. Roast dominates the aftertaste. Pleasantly mixed, and very smooth to drink. Well done brew.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2006
12 oz bottle, via OhioDad. Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger fine bubbled beige head that left nice lacing. Great roasted and chocolate malt nose, with some slightly drying yeast character, and a little coffee. Well balanced tripod of flavor of roast, chocolate, and a fairly aggressive hoppy bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with moderate fine carbonation, a little dusty on the finish. A very solid Porter, full of flavor and worth seeking out.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2006
Bottle. Pours a very dark mahogany with tan head. The aroma has a lot of roasted malt, some chocolate, a little bit of espresso, and even a distant hint of smoke. The flavor is roasty but subtle with some chocolate and cold coffee floating around. The bitterness is faint, but it’s there, especially at the end of the finish and in the aftertaste. Most of the finish is burning wood and baking chocolate. Pretty good... my only complaint is that the palate is just barely on the watery side, but not offensively so, so I can excuse it.

if gordon lightfoot thinks the edmund fitzgerald deserves a song then giving it a beer is also a good call, one of the finest porters around

MrBunn (2560) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2006
Big chocolatey aromas over a dark brown body with substantial foamy head. Flavor is creamy with chocolate dominance. Very nice... drinks a little better warmer rather than colder.
