Deep brown in colour. Aroma of very mild chocolate, maybe some cherries, malt and some smoke. Flavour of dark chocolate malt with a chalky bitterness and small amounts of coffee. Medium-large body. Finishes with a long bitterness and slightly dry.

I just realized that I had one more beer from Slikwily I hadnít tried. Saved the best one for last. This is an awesome Porter. Smooth, chocolately, full bodied flavor that justs keeps sailing into the harbor. This Boat didnít die at sea I can tell you that:)!!! Am definitely in acquisition mode for this Great breweries products. Kevin, great beers all around thank you for the last trade and this terrific beer.

Dark ruby with a tan head. Raosty dark malt aroma with a hint of plum. Chocoaltey malt flavor with some light roasty notes. Hoppy bitterness in the finish with some slightly sweet fruit notes. Not bad at all. Thanks secret santa.

(bottle) One of the best porters I can remember having. Understated notes of coffee and chocolate. I really look forward to having this in draft form.

This is a coffee lovers dream. It pours a dark coffee like color. A strong coffee prescence in the nose with hints of chocolate and malt coming through. Overall a well balanced beer with a mild carbonation and strong coffee and roasted malt flavors. Adding to that mix of flavors are hints of chocolate and a mild hoppy finish. This is a very good porter.

damn this is good, smells like coffee, chocolate and sweet malts, looks like a dank stout, obsidian appearance covered with a nice layer of khaki foam, sweet dry chocolate flavor, coffee accents, smooth lightly carbonated mouthfeel, this just made the list of my favorite porters.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2006 a deep brown color w/ a short lasting tan head. smelled almost sweetly of roasted malts w/ hints of coffee in the scent had a rich creamy smooth palate w/ a hint of carbonation that was surprising since I didnít notice it in the pour.. has a slightly hoppy aftertaste The flavor is an excellent malted hoppy taste Re-rated.. whomped the palate down upped the flavor dropped the overal. Palate was much lighter than remembered. Still a darn good porter though.

Inky black/brown, with off white head thick. Coffee, mocha, roasted flavor, sweet malt with green herbal notes (not offensive). Dry, roasted flavors, burnt toast, with a dry lingering finish. Very refreshing.

otaku (5) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2004 does not count
Very dark pour with slight hints of amber. A nice almost foamy head that stuck around until the last drink. The aroma was my favorite aspect of this fine porter. Almost overwhelming Chocolate/Espresso aromas with a hint of smoke. This is an extremely strong porter, with a pleasing roasty, hoppy bitterness. The EF seemed to be heavier to me than most porters, almost stout-like, which complimented the taste very well. I highly recommend this beer, but due to the intensity, I can hardly drink more than one. Easily my favorite porter!
