glennmastrange (2620) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Tap. Aroma is of toasted, almost burnt, light resin , some toffee and a hint of paper plant. Head is small, frothy, slightly off-white, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery witha lively carbonation. An average tasting beer, probably easy to drink with bar food.

Beerman6686 (6175) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2010
This poured a cloudy lighter brown color with an eggshell colored head. Aroma was malty nutty and a little bit of stale garbage. Flavor was nutty and something else that I can only describe of offensive burnt malt. This stuff was almost a drainpour for me.

PorterPounder (7116) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle - part of a Spring Mixed 12 pack. Darkish copper pour with a light off-white head. Neutral aroma with just a hint of nuttiness and some roasted malt. Subtly sweet flavor with some toasted bread notes, some nuts, a bit of muted citrus, but overall a bit "mushy" and damp. Mouthfeel, rather plain.

Aurelius (5006) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Clear, brown-amber with a beady head. Label is a psychedelic album cover - reminiscent of Sgt. Pepper meets Led Zeppelin. A light toasted soy nut aroma. Dry, toasty/roasty, slightly nutty, an unusual beer. It’s like a well-done vienna with a shot of porter. Not terribly complex, but you could drink a mess of these. It’s got character, and dark notes, but it isn’t clingy. ABC, Betton Rd.

Bottle. Pours a clear brownish copper body with a small khaki head. Aroma has some light roasted malts, nuts, soapy with some caramel. Flavor is much of the same but with some nice malt background and smokey notes. Sweet light bodied finish. Not bad...ehhhh
