Apellonious (53) - USA - MAY 25, 2005
Pours dark brown/ruby color with a tan head that quickly dissappates. Aroma a burnt roasted choco- coffee smell, and something else that I cant quite place. Decently carbonated, moderately flavorful, can be sweet at times, others times complex, sometimes simple. kind of like a women. Decent brew from Rogue.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle. Good initial aroma of light fruity chocolate and deeply roasted coffee. After a while the roasted components tend towards charred with a touch of smokiness. Smooth and sweet at the start with caramel and roast components. Body thins out as you drink. A beer of two halves - starts out well but ends not not so well

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted malt but just a touch of hops. Flavor is roasted malt and a touch of bitterness at the end. More coffee like. Less sweet than other porters that I’ve tasted. Not bad. I could drink this more. On the palate it is full bodied and creamy as a porter should be. Good stuff

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours very dark with a fine tan head. The aroma is subdued with some roasted malt, hop and alcohol. The flavour, however, is not subdued and leaps out at you with a barrage of roasted malt, and a suprisingly aromatic, citric hop character and biting bitterness. Some sweetness and somewhat meaty with huge notes of coffee as well as fruit. Very refreshing and very good.
