BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2004
At Rock Bottom Chicago Real Ale Dinner: Deep brown with reddish highlights producing a small tan head and good lace. The aroma hints of caramel malts, toffee, cherries, apple, floral hops, and a dusty yeast ester. The taste starts with sweet mocha tones with underlying bitterness. A light fruity sourness is detected. The finish is woody, smoky, and some coffee grinds notes. Medium-bodied with a chalky and sticky mouthfeel. The cask ageing adds some nice complexity to this porter, recommended if you can find some.

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2006
Near black. Fairly strong aroma with roast and a bit of chocolate and coffee. Smooth, full maltiness. Quite roasty as porters go but with smooth chocolate richness to back it up. Finishes quite dry.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Dark brown body with almost no head. Lightly roasted aroma with some nice chocolate and toasted, buttered bread. A nice tasting, straight forward porter. Well done.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Dark, nutty brown colour. . . full bubbly tan head. Blackberry hop aroma with sweet truffles, almond oils, peanuts and a light alcohol tang. Roasted bitterness that makes for a fresh start on the tongue. Flavour turns fruity and sweet - cherries, plums and raisins. Slight peppery spice in the finish, enjoyable.

A nice full bodied brown porter. Rich and nicely roasted , with full on flavors of chocolate and coffee, moist chocolate cake mouthfeel. NIcely balanced with a dry roasted finish.

Very dark brown, with a tan bubbly head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. An average mouthfeel led way to a roasted taste.

Fairly non-descript. A lot of milk chocolate, some softly roasted coffee, and oak notes in the body. Toffee aroma.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Tap @ Horse Brass Pub for RBSG 04’
Black color with a light tan head & moderate lacing. The aroma is dry, sweaty, light roast & sweet fruit. The flavor is roasted too with the roast standing out and some sweet caramel in the tail. Fairly 2 dimensional with the roast but still creamy and balanced.
