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.

loved it . . .superb balance of hops and malt, reminded me of Siera Nevada Porter.

I really like porters, but a good one is hard to find. This one fits the bill. Great medium mouthfeel, warm and roasty/chocolate aroma and flavor, some hoppiness to balance. Seems like it is almost as good from the bottle as it is on tap.

This is a good porter. The bittersweet taste is there, the head is nice and the initial bite is appetizing.

shorlin (652) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 4, 2002
Black. Oh so black. Nice dark beige head which lasts. Nose is really nice, with roasty dark coffee. Flavour is very nice, with malt galore. Hard to find the hops, but still OK balance. Very nice beer, but I probably shouldn’t have tried my new Imperial Stouts before this one. Thanks hopsrus!

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2002
Nice caramel/chocolate nose. The palate is very roasty. Very dry. This porter is stout-like, lots of roasted barley flavors. Lots of malt, coffee, and caramel in this porter.

Delicate creamy head, great deep coffee color with the nose to match. Nice even roasted malt with a great creamy finish.
