Ratman197 (9868) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2008

JorisPPattyn (7939) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2008
Draught Small, dark yellowish head over black beer. Creamy, lactic nose, superimposed on the classical roasted notes. Nice, if quite burnt taste, expressly roasted. No creaminess in the flavourperception, but it is again present in the MF. Medium to well-bodied, very slick. Good Baltic porter, made with bottom-fermenting yeast.

Ughsmash (7146) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2008
Thanks to Joey for the handbottle! Poured clear burnt umber with a short cap of medium brown head. The aroma made me smile.. semi-sweet chocolates meet charred molasses, toasted wood, and sweeter vanilla.. light, dry herbal notes accent. The flavor had sticky, toasted darker chocolates and a bit of molasses at the core, mostly surrounded by burnt black patent malts (too much for my liking).. bitterness was low and herbal in nature.. some lactic notes hit toward the finish. Medium-plus bodied with a bit too much sweetness on the palate.. also a bit too burnt on the finish. Overall some mighty fine stuff.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty with chocolate and a ton of sweet dark fruit. Roasted malts, chocolate, touch of burnt malts, nuts, and dark fruits make up the flavor profile. Strong alcohol, but a pretty clean finish. Enjoyable brew.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
On tap at Stone. Black with almost no head. Roasty, chocolate, fruit and hops aroma. Tangy citrus and chocolate taste.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2008
Draught at PP Carlsbad. A true lagered porter! Thick opaque black, tan head, liberal lacing, looks viscious. Slightly solvent with a lovely sweet ending with kisses of black licorice and a silky mouthfeel, yum.

Thanks for sharing this one, iowaherkeye. The body was blakc with an orangeish tan head. The aroma was pancakes and plain brown syrup. I also got some milk chocolate. The taste was more of the milk chocolate with some walnuts. There was also coffee. A nice medium body kept this easy to drink. Solid.
