WOW!!! A dark mysterious brew..what to expect from this I wonder! Big, malty, but dry palate, well balanced bitterness, surprisingly, it is very refreshing...lovely!

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Chocolate, coffee, malt aroma. Dark, brown leaning toward black, pour with small tan head. Bitter/sour taste tends to get in the way of the malts and chocolate. Still, enjoyable.

Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2005
Very dark with a sweet roasty musty aroma. Flavour is good but it has a strange finish.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Pours a fairly dark brown, minimal head and minimal lacing. Roasted aroma and flavor, but still fairly light in flavor. Relatively high on the hop content for a porter, with a sort of salty finish. Good porter.

Hbie (133) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Black tart treacle coffee flavour and quite bitter, not very pleasant another dissappointing USA beer. Not my cup of tea, prefer Fullers Porter.

hayduke (4928) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: APR 15, 2008 22 oz bottle. Very dark, tending toward black with a tan head. Heavy malts. Chocolate and coffee aromas. Slight after-taste at the end, but the first 20 ounces were fine. A very good porter.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 Pours a very dark brown almost black with a very thin head. Smells of coffee and choclate. Very smooth rich flavor. I’ll be having more of this.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Looks like coffee with a thin brown head and maybe a touch of light peaking through. Coffee aroma. For some reason this makes me tired, I could swear there’s more than 5.1% EtOH in this. Found this quite delicious overall.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2005
Very drinkable beer with a slightly sour aftertase.Not the best porter Ive had,(prefare Sierra Nevada or Fullers,) but very good and well worth the £1.99 from Sainsburys.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Very chocolatey coffee aroma sweet malt. Very smooth tasting. A good porter. Easily drinkable.
