Rating #1800! Bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Thanks to rudy for picking it up for me. Deep ruby-brown with a moderate tan head. Big, roasty aroma with notes of coffee, bitter cocoa, burnt sugar and oak.Slightly thin mouthfeel, but appropriate for the style. Fantastic flavour of dark chocolate, malted milk and slightly over-roasted coffee, with a lactic twinge and some alcohol warmth in the moderately dry finish. A bit strong perhaps, but pretty fine otherwise.

Poured dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma was a huge roast, some bread, and coffee. The flavor was heavily roasted, then switched to bread, and finished with more coffee. There was some flavor in between the roast and bread that I can’t place (cardboard?). Good body lots of malt.

Bottle (500ml). Poured oily opaque black with slight reddish highlights and a solid, lasting light brown head. Oddly sweet and floral hop aroma, very light milk chocolate malt, a little coffee character. Lovely smooth chocolate roast malt taste, lactic and lightly nutty, mild floral hop and alcohol bitterness in the finish. Silky mouthfeel, very nicely carbonated, with gentle lactic acidity in the fairly short finish. Very nice, somewhat more warming than many porters, easy to drink

IPAndy (120) - minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2007
Dark brown/black with tan head. Lacing throughout. Aroma has some nuts, chocolate, roasted malt, some alcohol. Flavor has burnt chocolate, somewhat sweet. Hazelnut maybe. Creamy finish and a very nice tartness that makes you pucker. Loses some points overall because of relative high alcohol.

Beerdedone (3008) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Pours black in color with a light tan head. Nice complex aroma of roasted malts, coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Flavor was sweet and rich with bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Nicely balanced with a roasted malt finish. Very nice

Pretty damn good porter. I was somewhat expecting something more British or European, but this ended up tasting almost like a Black Marlin porter. Delicious, easy to drink and nice label. Thanks Naven! Good call on that one.

16.9 oz bottle, purchased at Holiday wine cellar. A damn fine porter. Dark, rich black color. Aroma and flavor are of espresso coffee. Actually, this tasted like an iced espresso. The finish was very hoppy. Actually, the hops reminded me of many of the west coast beers. Possibly Centennial hops. Awesome.
