UPDATED: JAN 11, 2003 not much here, dark, I guess,little head, no complexity,a true letdown, a few hops, some cheap coffee and nothing more.

Dark (oh really) with not much head. Starts slightly bitter but then come some interesting roasted flavors. I donít often reach for a porter but I found this to be one of the better ones Iíve tried.

A good porter with a lot of flavors going on and a beautiful color and aroma. Nothing groundbreaking in my opinion, though worth trying.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 2, 2003
Good aroma and flavor. Lots of roasted coffee and chocolate with a touch of cinnamon. Fairly robust and a great representative of its style. A step behind Fullerís London Porter, but not by much.

My ultra-religious cousin served me a bottle of this on my way through Cleveland; Jesus hasnít taken away his taste for beer, anyway! Very good, chocolaty, balanced porter slightly tending to the sweet side; a might too carbonated.

Very sweet and chocolatey. Almost like a lighter version of their Emmitts Stout. No alcohol presence at all and very tasty as it warmed!

Very satisfying porater, subtle hints of coffe and good hop flavor. A strong porter.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Dark ruby in color. Great aroma on this one. Smokey notes, chocolate, caramel; mouthfeel is a bit thin and slightly more body and perhaps more hops would suit me better. Overall a very enjoyable porter.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2002
I was very impressed with this beer. Iím just starting to like porters a lot and this porter was tasty. Very chocolatey aroma. Slowly diminishing tan head. Ruby undertone to mostly dark brown color. Lightly carbonated. Bitter coffee beans and smokiness transitions in to chocolatey maltiness and bitterness. I have to thank Dogbrick for trading me for this one.

Black, almost completely opaque. Next to no head. Toasty, chocalately nose. Bitter front with hints of dark chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, though a bit thin. Mild malts. Short finish with a hint of coffee. Very tasty.
