Fairly dark for a porter with an off white head. Super chocolate aroma with a touch of fruit and citrus. Flavor is a bit of a let down (not as robust as the aroma except the especially bitter finish). Bitter finish is not so well done (overdone maybe or not sharp enough).

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2003
Dark Brown, almost opaque beer under a beige head; mixture of large & small bubbles, and a slight haze due to a pour pore. I got some of the yeast in the glass. Aroma is sort of earthy hoppy; roasty and chocolate starts to come through as it warms, I do also get some caramel and burnt aromas as well. Flavor is roast grain, bitter dark grain(slightly acrid), but surprisingly not a lot of sourness from the dark grains. Well balanced but finishes dry and bitter with a hop flavor and burnt grain. Mouthfeel is dry and slightly astringent due to dark grain and hops. Carbonation is low and body is a little light. Not a beer I'd care to drink more than one or two of, but interesting enough to try more than once.

I found it thin and lacking those intangibles that make up really good porters. The slight bitter undertones did not smooth out as it warmed. Not bad but certainly not great

First, the appearance of this beer is simply wonderful. Just looking at it adds a great deal to the experience and anticipation. The aroma seems a little thin and lacking, however. The flavor is nice, and goes down fairly easy. I had hoped for a little more *umph* from the flavor, but it's still good. A nice beer.

ARMed (598) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2003
A nice deep dark porter with a slight hint of roasted malt coffee. Certainly not overbearing on the coffee, rather very tasty. Creamy and smooth with a nice bitter taste. Definitely a roasted flavored porter. Robust and bold.

This was not as impressive as I thought it would be. A bit too hoppy for a porter, but the coffee accents were a nice bit to the beer.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2003
This beer I couldn't finish. No discernible nose. Black color with small quickly dissapating head. Flavor was odd. No real coffee flavor just an odd tart finish. Maybe a bad bottle, but one I won't try again soon to find out.

jgb9348 (4706) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Black and opaque in colour. Absolutely no head out of the bottle. Strong aroma with hints of coffee. Coffee in the taste with a little hoppy taste and a perfect amount of malt. Dry and refreshing. A good overall beer!

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2003
Dark brown, fluffy tan head. Spicey chocolate and some coffee notes in the nose. Heavy coffee in the body with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Some roast behind the coffee and a light hoppiness that doesn't come close to matching the bitterness of the coffee. Dries in the finish. Big, bold and roasty, very bitter. Not sweet at all, don't know what other raters were drinking.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Mild sweet coffee nose, medium tan head, nearly opaque dark brown. Well-blended hops and malts, with a coffee flavor and some finishing bitterness. Not so sweet as other ratings would indicate. I don't get much chocolate here. Thin for the style. Nice, but overrated.
