An slightly above average porter. Brown, with a touch of red color. Almost a cross between robust and a brown porter. Chocolate flavors along with slight coffee. Dry dark malt bitter finish.

Just not what I expected, dark in color with a creamy head but light coffey chocolate taste. Just not much there.

I expected more from this beer - had it on tap and I believe it was fairly fresh. Black color, very creamy head - by appearance, thought it would be a real treat. Mothfeel was of medium silky smooth. But where are the flavors? Very muted taste ... slight hints of coffee and bakers chocolate - but again, very faint. I was disappointed and will not be buying again.

Pretty good. Not my favorite porter but a good attempt.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2002
A nice buy, though not what I was expecting. A little too much on the burnt side for me. Great appearance, nice head, and a nice aroma, with a hint of chocolate.

Re-Rate 05/12/02: Deep garnet, almost brown, beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, caramel, toasted grains quite evident. Front sweet, the top is light, finish is dry, lightly carbonated, fair hop presence. A fair to middlin porter, nothing special.
