UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 This one's black as night and I can see no light through the glass. Head is small and tan. Aroma reminds me of charred wood, chocolate and coffee. Very creamy and full bodied for a porter. A little on the bitter side as I'd prefer roasted malt to dominate in a porter. A creamy porter but overall too bitter for me.

Dark brown color. Roasted coffee aroma. Flavor is coffee and chocolate but not overpowering.Has a malty feel to it. Goes down smooth and finishes hoppy. A nice porter

Approriate roasty, hop-bitter aroma leads to a bittersweet chocolate taste with lingering astringency. Medium-full bodied mouthfeel is complemented by bitter hops and black (or chocolate) malt persistence. Smoky. Solid. Tasted 5/2003.

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2003
Dark reddish brown in color and pours a tan head. Alghough it gives off a very hoppy aroma hops are not very apparent in the flavor. The flavor consisted of a very pleasant mixture of chocolate, mild hops, and roasted barley. Very delicious and drinkable.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2003 Dark brown body with a long lasting medium tan head. Lots of lacing on this one. Aroma filled with coffee roasted malt, and a hint of hops. Taste is full of coffee and malt, didnt notice much chocolate coming through.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2003
Bottled. Dark brown with creamy, lacy head. Moderate black malt aroma. Roasted, burnt, and totally ashed malt flavours. Not sure if there is true coffee flavour or just over roasted malt. Slightly thin but still smooth palate.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Nice, creamy head. Very dark appearance. First and foremost, the aroma was coffee. It sets you up for more chicory than chocolate in the medium-bodied, roasted malt taste. Good, hoppy kick adds balance. Very enjoyable.

Very disappointing- mediocre at best. The flavor just never quite came together and sat there in the corner giving me strange looks. But I've had worse.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - MAY 16, 2003
12 oz. bottle. Certainly not the best porter I've ever had by any stretch of the imagination. It poured out a deep, dark brown color, with a decent tan colored head. Faded to curtains of lace down the side of the glass. Aromas are mostly of roasted malt. Not too much in the way of hops aromas here. Has a funky Belgian smell to it also. Tastes ok, nothing to write home about. Smooth and coating on the palate. Sharp hops tang at the finish. It's an average porter in my book, but I've had better.

Has a nice roasted coffee aroma mixed with a sweet chocolate. Very nice espresso taste and smoothness. Perfect blend of bitter and sweet.
