I am guessing this is what was poured at the AZ strong fest under a different name? It poured a super dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is all chocolate here. Tons of chocolate syrup and a light roasted flavor light up the tongue. I liked it.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line :
Minerals and vegetals battle it out within the distraught raisins and molasses of this diseased, and usually - probably - well roasted Porter.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam surrounds the dark brown.
-The finish is relatively dry; then again, itís hard to tell if this was intentional.<br< -This bottle was only a couple of months old...
-Pickled tartness eerily smirks at the lost roastiness.

Bottle.

On tap at the brewpub in Prescott where it pours with a nice mahogany looking body that has deep red edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweetness mixed with chocolate and caramel malts as well as a thin ribbon of dark roasted maltiness. The taste delivers malts and a slight molasses sweetened dark roasted maltiness as well as a pleasing layer of chocolate. It then picks up sweetened coffee and a dash of brownie laced with a wafer thin layer of black licorice. This is a nice robust porter where the above average sweetness is balanced nicely by the roasty malt bill.

This is one of numerous ratings that I have found disappeared from my RateBeer inventory after comparing my lists. I donít recall it as very good, so Iím rating it meiocre just as a placekeeper .. donít take my word for it.

egajdzis (5266) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Poured a dark brown / tan color with a mocha colored, small head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, light cocoa, a bit of smoke, and some oatiness. Taste of roasted malts, light caramel, some cocoa, and nuts. Thinner mouthfeel.

Smells okay, looks nice. heavy in first taste, with quite a bit of coffee and some chocolate. Pretty sweet, but really a very acceptable, drinkable porter.

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a deep brown with a amber notes and a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, some citrus notes, roasty, nuts, light pine and flroal and even some sugary malts. Flavor of some smoke, coffee notes, dark chocolate, roasted malt, earthy and some light hop bitterness.
