Bottle: Roasty chocolate and light coffee aromas. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate up front with some fruit and sweet roasted coffee finish. A little sourness in the finish.

Pretty vinous. A little on the thin side. To be honest, it was too sweet for me, for a porter. Even it was a baltic porter.

This bottled brew marked best before 12/07/04 poured a large sized head of frothy medium sized mostly lasting but soon collapses into a foamy thick head that slowly diminishes with dark brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was opaque and black in color. No light can pass through this one its so opaque like a cave. Its aroma contained notes of creamy roasted malts dark malts and was very nice. Its mouth feel is initially flat and smooth with a lingering tingly palate. Its flavor contained thick dark beer brown malts and roasted notes. It was OK but not as goos as it looked thus disappointing me. It was more like a Schwartz beer than a porter. A very average brew.

JK (5806) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2005 Surprisingly complex and full bodied. Black with a syrup texture. Huge malt aroma with wild rice and fruit. Flavor is complex with a great port flavor,fruit, malt, coffee, light chocolate, and a very good, mild acidic bite at the end. Excellent. Best at room temperature.

Almost opaque black, practically no head. Aroma is burned malty. Sticky mouthfeel. Flavor of burned sugar - roasted, sweetish not very good balanced.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Bottle. Small tan head, good lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Malty, chocolate, coffee, roasty, burnt aroma. Sweet, chocolate, malty, smooth flavor. Aroma outweighs the flavor IMO. Smooth and dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

Dark, almost black. Light-brown head. Low head. Burnt notes in the aroma. Flavor has the taste of burnt bread. Sweet.

Dark brown nearly black in color with a thin, firmly packed foamed cocoa brown head, minimal spotty lacing and a bit of a fluffy/bubbly collar stays seemingly present throughout the session. Aroma is mild but welcome of a nice calming chocolate; within lays some coffee roast and dark toffee. The coffee aroma takes over considerably as it warms. Flavors are smooth, easy, and calm; very mild chocolate in tone, not withstanding much punch or character really. Clean, and respectably so, bits of espresso-like coffee and some roasted semi-sweet malts, but not in any real noticeable capaticy or level to excite the taste buds. I’m most impressed with its cleanness but not so much its overall flavor character. Feel is just shy of medium with a low carbonation and weakened body of sweetness that tries to elude to something but never quite developes. Drys slightly after finishing with some coffee and chocolate;unbittered in variety. An easy and clean little drinkin’ porter with an easy kickback flow of smoothness but lacks some in the taste dept. to keep a significant intrigment.

Deep, dark black coloration, nice, if slim head of cocoa/ tan foam above. Aroma: creamy, cocoa, espresso, but delicious, nice and roasty, bits of cocoa and coffee, nutty, and, um, mmm! Taste: awfully smooth, not leaning too hard on the awful, just real easy, if you know what i mean, ...gritty, full-bodied, big feel on the palate..tasty, which is to say, taaaa-steeee!!! The mouthfeel/body is medium, and the finish is long and sweet, flush with cocoa and caramel...bit too sweet for a real porter, but for an Eastern (or more Eastern than England) European porter, good enough, perhaps... beyond expectations or anticipations, this is a dandy drink, a truly tasty dark brew, delicious...hey, more i drink it, more I like it...and the more it tastes like a true porter....not bad at all!
