Very tasty brew. 6.6% ABV 31 IBUs Malts: 2-Row Pale ~ Crystal 75L & 120L ~ Munich ~ Special Roast ~ Chocolate ~ Carafa III ~ Torrefied Wheat Hops: Apollo ~ East Kent Goldings Original Gravity: 16.5° Plato

Courtesy Degarth. Pours a dark brown, with a light off white head. Smells of malty sweet chocolate caramel, dark fruit, and subtle roast. Medium to light bodied, mostly roasty in its flavor. Could have used a touch more body as it was a little thin on the palate. Some subtle chocolate and dark fruit notes made up the slightly bitter finish. Decent at best.

22 oz bottle, via 5000. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy brown head that vanished quickly to a thin ring. The nose is really roasty and chocolaty with some light burnt caramel. Some moderate hoppiness. First thought was that it was pretty hoppy, and maybe a little husky. Equal parts chocolate malt and chalky roast, very dry. Mouthfeel is dry with a watery texture and nice soft fizzy carbonation. Long roasty finish. Overall, a nice enjoyable hoppy Porter. Not the greatest, but a solid effort.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Bottle from bitbucket - thanks! This one has a darker brown color with a medium head. Aroma has some pleasant chocolate and roast. Flavor has a stronger chocolate/roast thing going on but fell off a bit as it seemed a tad oxidized. Drinkable, but not all that well put together.

hopdog (9618) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, and some toasted caramel. Tastes of roast, coffee, and light chocolate. Body on the thinner side.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2008
2/15/08 On draught at Whistle Stop Ale House, Renton, Wa. Aroma is roast malt, with light chocolate, no black malt and creamy sweetness. Appearance is black with a moderate, even tan head. Flavor is heavily roasted, with some astringent sourness and very low sweetness . Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a relatively dry mouthfeel and finish for a porter. Carb feel is a little above average for the style. Overall, this left me alittle disappointed, as the flavor definitely didn’t live up to the promising aroma.

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Draft at Hales Ales, Seattle, WA. Tan head that was mostly lasting, lacked lacing, mostly opaque, no visible carbonation, and a black hue. Roasty, malty, caramel notes, chocolate and hoppy nose. Flavor was roasty, chocolate, light coffee, malty and somewhat thin tasting. Smooth, thin mouthfeel. Light-medium body. There was something off about this one in the flavor and thus the low rating.

Bottle poured black with a nice thick brown head with a nice sheet of lacing that coats the inside of my favorite glass. Aroma and flavor of bitter, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee. moderately sweet with a thin/ medium body. not bad at all with a lightly bitter finish and a good mouthfeel.

Very dark with very little head....reminds me of espresso. Hints of chocolate, coffee, and something else "I can’t quite put my finger on."
