Haven’t had this one since I visited the brewery itself, but it is a very good brew.

Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts. Light to medium body, nice malty flavor with a hint of chocolate.

In the world of porters this one is a bit odd. I need to try it again to get a better opinion.

This one was a nice dark coffe color with a cramy white head. Great earthy aroma, creamy, coffee, earthy, malty flavors that just dropped off and left me feeling like I'd just drunk oddly flavored water. This one didn't deliver on it's promise and it was so low in carbonation that it was almost undetectable. Not going back to this one.

12 oz. bottle, purchased at Total Wine in Ft. Myers, FL with a 10/17/05 bottled on date...Pours a solid chocolate fudge with a very spare, spongy-beige head that quickly vanished into the brownie batter abyss...Smell some roasted molasses with small traces of celery-like hops. Best way to describe the aroma is "chocolate dipped plum"...Medium in body and sticky in texture with average carbonation and bitter finish...Tastes slightly sweet but very bitter...Overall, it’s just like a very bitter glass of liquid dark chocolate. A solid smokey porter that would go well with an elaborate 5 course meal.

Intriguing aroma followed up by simple, almost mediocre flavor. Body is a little thin and nothing special but still a slightly above average beer.

A solid porter. A bit weak for my tastes, and a bit too sweet.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 The color was a dark brown\black with a hint of amber. It had a thin beige head. The aroma was not very strong but did have a roasted malt. The flavor was malty with a hint ofl sweetness.

Black as night with a small tan head. Flavor of strong coffee and malt, not much aroma. Smooth and a bit sweet - a good beer but not worth giving up Guinness for!
