auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 21, 2006
A pour of dark brown, with a creamy tan head. Aroma of light molasses. Flavor is extremely rich, melded from smoke, bacon, coffee, chocolate and toast. Lots of heavy cream, molasses and honey. Touch of toffee and brown sugar. Palate is a touch sticky, but the suprising dose of hops keep in clean. Very respectable.

Tap: Black with medium head and decent lacing. Strong black coffee front to back. Bitter coffee finish. I repeat I do not like coffee.

Pailhead (4808) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2004
On tap: Aroma of malty coffee. Dark brown virtually black with little head. Moderate coffee presence with a little dark chocolate up front with a strong black coffee and bitter finish. Slight sourness in the finish as well. Heavier than most porters.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Pitch black with little to no head to speak of, a few tan bubbles around the edge. Licorice and smoke in the nose, big body, thick mouthfeel, anicey, like a big Schwarzbier or thick London Porter. Dry at the finish more black licorice and a touch of bitterness. Yum!

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Draft at the Grizzly Peak Brewing Co. Tan head, excellent lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a ruby hue. Malty, chocolate and coffe in the aroma. Coffee and malt flavor. Smooth on the palate. Extremely good Porter and a must try.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 19, 2004
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized brown colored bubbles. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and dark ruby red brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of nice Porter dark malt molasses and was just excellent. Its mouth feel is smooth and malty with a nice malt bite in the finish. Its flavor contained smoke molasses and sweet malty notes. It was excellent very tasty. A fantastic beer that I would love to buy again and again and again.
