Aurelius (4381) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2003 Decent, not great. A little thin. Dry, with a berry undertone to all the coffee. A little hop zing. A good value, and usually one of the best beers at many places without an extensive beer selection.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2001
It tasted a bit weak.

obxdude10 (2077) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2001
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Wouldn't be my first choice in porters, very little head, thin body, had a dry aftertaste, a bit on the watery side

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2001
Decent but not great. Especially after just drinking a Stegmaier porter, which blows this away in flavor. At least this tastes better than the Redhook IPA.

BuKKet99 (39) - Republic of Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2001
A solid porter. A bit weak for my tastes, and a bit too sweet.

21iceman40 (1732) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2001
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 I' not usually a fan of porter, but as always redhook made a good beer. A quasi powerful and robust taste that is still drinkable. I really liked this one. Goes excellent with a steak.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - AUG 23, 2001
A nice dark porter. aroma of roasted malts. very smooth but better cask-conditioned or on a nitro tap than bottled.

prpplague (247) - Euless, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2001
a nice stepping stone to more traditional porters

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 13, 2001
Decent but overrated porter. Better on tap & nitro than in the bottle. Smoother and creamier. Still has a decent roasted malt profile and snappy hop bite.

fraternie (844) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2001
Very good porter. Smooth and not too heavy on the roasted flavor. Thin and lacking head though.
