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!

CMUBEERMAN (426) - - 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 (1799) - 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.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Pours black with thick and creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and caramel. The flavor starts rich and roasted - chocolate and caramel, ends with piney bitterness. Medium body, mouthfeel is light.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a very dark brown with slight ruby edges when held up to a light, with a one finger off-white head the fades to a spotty cap that trails some nice lacing. Smell; it has a kind of earthy and nutty smell, along with some roasted coffee beans and hints of chocolate. Taste; really nice roasted coffee flavor to start with, followed by some chocolate malts that is balanced with just enough hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice smooth carbonation. I was sure this wouldn’t live up to the hype, but this is definitely one of the best American Porters I’ve ever had.

Radek Kliber (7117) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 3, 2006
Dark brown, white neat tan look. Nice roasty aroma with definitive hop character, clean mocha java around. Medium bodied, light mineral hop character, woody, roasty with strong coffee accents. Drinkable, pleasure if you are coffee drinker.
