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 (1495) - 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.

bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2003
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.

winterlager (101) - Orchard Park, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2003
Has a nice roasted coffee aroma mixed with a sweet chocolate. Very nice espresso taste and smoothness. Perfect blend of bitter and sweet.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2003
It looks muddy with a fine head. Mild coffeeish aroma. The flavour is a little thin with notes of coffee and hops. A decent brew.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Muddy dark color, looks like a porter. Good aroma. The mocha flavor was slight. Fairly sweet for the finish. Not too much personality in this beer, but still nice.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Dark brown/near black with a thick tan head. Smells like an APA, with hints of grapefruit and only a faint dark maltiness. Initial grapefruit flavors with following flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted barley and light coffee. Late finish is near sour with a hops bite that is a bit much for style.

DuffManOhYeah (133) - USA - MAY 2, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 Very good. A little bitter, but pretty smooth. In color and thickness, this is just one step down from a stout, which is always a good thing.
