Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Poured two fingers of head on a black body. Looks nice. The aroma is chocolate, roasted malt and a little coffee. Pretty good except for a slight metallic note. The taste is watered down roasted malt with metallic undertones. Thereís a mild bitterness at the end. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An easy drinker. The metallic notes took some points away, but not good overall.

gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Sample at SF Beer Week Opening Gala 2014. Dark reddish/brown with a medium head. Aroma of light roasted malt, coffee and some fruit. Nothing special with this one.

GIJOE (621) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Pours dark brown with a foamy white head. Nose is very aromatic; heavy dark grain notes, caramel, cola. Taste is right on the line between sweet malt and hoppy bitterness. Medium body; lively carbonation. Quite good brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Really carmel and coffee aroma with a tan, almost brown head. Dark dark brown color. The taste is nuttty vanilla with creamy smooth after taste. This is quite delish-kiestro. I think it would go best with a chocolate based dessert. The best black eye Iíve ever gotten.

A very smooth Black & Tan type beer. Very easy to drink with a great roasted after taste. The flavor isnít typical of blended beers but, it retains interest. Also, a nutty aroma thatís pleasing even to girls. Happy International Beer Day!

Chudwick (2108) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAR 12, 2012
22oz bottle - pours black with nice tan foam and good lacing. Very odorous! Nose is caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is roasted coffee, candy sugar and old-timer candy. taste is sweet with an underlying bitterness. For a porter, I expected a more roasty flavor and bitter-er taste. I love this! Easy to drink, lots of flavor, balanced.. Itís likes a candy made for old people that makes them nostalgic every time. I like the fact I donít have to rationalize why I like it: I just do.

Pours a dark brown / deep red with light body, good amount of carbonation. Smelled of caramel, malt and a hint of hops. Taste also presents with more caramel flavors, and a bit of dark fruit. Fninshed with nice taste retention and a nice full mouth feeling.
