Appears a black with a beige head. Lots of solid lacing. Smell is oily sweet dark fruit with some sour notes coming through. Taste is of chocolate and sweet fruit mixed with some roasty coffee. Mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy, and oily. Drinkability is good. Pretty darn good porter.

Pours a black color with a medium beige,tan head that fades quickly. Aroma consists of dark coffee beans, chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste is nicely bitter with coffee, chocolate and roasted malts prominant. Excellent porter.

Roasted malts and coffee for aroma. Black body with good tan head. Flavor had some texure to it. You could taste coffee, chocolate and some bitter bite to it. Roasty on the palate. Glad I got one on a recent trip to Wisconsin.

Aromas of dry dark chocolate and coffee. Taste begins rather dry and subtle, with some light coffee notes. The chocolate malts make their presence towards the finish with a bit of raisin as well. Finshes dry and hoppy, especially the more it warms. A rather loght body for a typical porter. This is a solid brew in every category, but does nothing really special. Flavor seems rather subdued and muted throughout the spectrum. Needs some more oomph. Still wanting the try it on tap. Will rerate.

Brought back from Morgantown WV after visiting my daughterin WVU. I had just seen them lose to VT with Marcus Vick. Suprised to get almost no head from this pour. Very good and sweet. I really liked this Porter.

Bottle. Dark deep brown pour. Huge roasty malt aroma and flavors. Chocolate more prevalent in flavor to me. Some coffee and hops, and moderate bitterness (tho that could have been dwarfed by the robust roast flavors). Good robust porter.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2007 12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark, nearly opaque ruby/brown. Two finger tan head that i slong lasting and leaves excellent lace. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with a nice malty richness. Roasted malt flavors that are not too sweet and complimented by a subtle hop bitterness. I’ve had this many times over the years, and it remains one of my favorite porters.

Had this on tap in southern Michigan. It was served a little too cold, but it was still a treat to savour. Thick rich mouth feel compliment the dark taste. It isn’t too watery, some subtle hoppiness to give this more than just a smoky backbone. Good malt depth. The beer isn’t overwhelmingly good, just good.
