bottle. pours a deep dark brown colour with a medium sized mocha head. great aroma of coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate...but it’s mostly burnt coffee. full roasty body with a tingling carbonation. this is quite bitter with a lot of chocolate flavour. long bitter chocolate finish. a nice porter, too bad about that wreck though.

Thanks to Scary Aaron for bringing it with him for his east coast trip. Poured a dark brown producing a nice tan head. Strong roasted flavor with the malt with some nice chocolate in there as well. Wish I could of had more than 2.

Zeswaft (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Poured from bottle jet black with almost zero tan head. Aroma of roasted mocha. Flavor is mostly chocolate and coffee. Full bodied. Bitterness gets you on the back of the tongue in the swallow and aftertaste. Better served a little warmer than cold.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours near black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is heavy with a delicious sweet aftertaste. The additional hops provide a nice contrast to the dark flavours, other porters are missing this. Perhaps a tad too sweet for my taste buds. But still an excellent brew from one of my favorite breweries.

deep brown pour with scarlet highlights, chocolate aroma with hints of coffee. flavor is thick with chocolates and a little bit of nut tastes and small amounts of coffee. a very smooth medium to full body with a little hops in the finish.

hopdog (9189) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with TAR (thanks!). Poured a dark reddish brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of chocolates and roasted malts. Tastes of stronger chocolate, nuts, and some bitter coffee. A nice and tasty porter.

tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2005
Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. A heavy roasted nutty malt taste with a light bitter coffee flavor. A satisfying medium-full body brew.

boto (1891) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2005
12oz. bottle: This beer pours an opaque brown. There was a bit of a tan head that died off rather quickly. Nice big whiff of chocolate to the nose. Also some notes of roastiness and nutiness. The taste is somewhat chocolate sweet, with a nice bitterness to it also. Very smooth and drinkable. Thanks, Jay!

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Nice dark brown with amber highlights and a good beige head. Lots of chocolate and nutty aromas with hints of roast. Flavor is the same with a bit of a dry finish along with some hop bitterness. Pretty smooth.
