UPDATED: JUN 2, 2006 Deep ruby red color with thick light tan head. Aroma is chocolately, creamy, with a touch of roastyness. Flavor is roasty, acidic, ashy.

This is without question my favorite Porter to date. Rich and smooth with outstanding flavor.

Racegoer (353) - Indiana, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2003
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.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 8, 2003
Dark (oh really) with not much head. Starts slightly bitter but then come some interesting roasted flavors. I don’t often reach for a porter but I found this to be one of the better ones I’ve 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 (7132) - 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 Fuller’s London Porter, but not by much.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 2, 2003
My ultra-religious cousin served me a bottle of this on my way through Cleveland; Jesus hasn’t taken away his taste for beer, anyway! Very good, chocolaty, balanced porter slightly tending to the sweet side; a might too carbonated.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2002
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.
