Bottle as pictured. Pitch black pour with dark tan cream head. Aroma od powered cocoa and malt. Flavor robust malt, coffee, & roasty nuttiness. Definitley better as it warms. Finish is a smooth bitter. Mouthfeel was a bit watery. All in all very nice. I’d drink it again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle: Black, oily tan head, light lacing. The nose is sweet with licorice and roast, nice chocolate and coffee, bitter cocoa and hops, light alcohol. The flavor has a big nice body with tasty roasted notes and fruity alcohol. Super roasty, typical of this brewery, which is nice to see.

Huge, huge thanks to blankboy for sharing his bottle of this with me. Very dark brown, small bubbly brown head. Great aroma - chocolaty, rich, roast, wow! Taste is just as good if not better. Rich bitter roast, sweet chocolate. Nice bitter linger. Full bodied. Complex, yet so drinkable. Probably the best porter I have ever had and one of the best beers I have ever had.

Bottle Purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA. Shared with friends. Pours black with a 1 finger tan head. The nose is very very malty with a coffee tinge. Taste is sweet and full of coffee and a bit of chocolate. Pretty damn tasty porter.

Tried at SIB. Like many beers, this one needs to warm a little before you’re able to get the full effect of the taste. Lots of smooth chocolate with a little coffee and moderate roast. Pretty tasty porter...would definitely have again.

Aroma of some roasted malts with chocolate. Kind of sweet, roasted malts again with an overall dry feeling.

Nice opaque black color with medium brown, small head and little lacing. Aroma is big, lots of fruit and malt. Flavor is fantastic. Very creamy and malty with some fruit notes as soon as it hits my tongue. nice cocoa finish. Definitely one of the top porters.

Black with brown heads: smells like chocolate covered raosted nuts. Light coffee in the taste, a little thinner than expected yet a syruppy finish. Thanks hopscotch.
