Tap into pint glass, Sheffields (Chicago). It was aight. Since I like the style, I can’t bomb it, but it was disappointing. Not as full-bodied as I expected, it was medium at best and a bit watery. The flavor was nicely balanced coffee and chocolate bitterness, but seemed just a bit on the weak side. Dark brown in the glass, not much of a beige head, this might have suffered in the rating since I had just had a Black Bavarian, which is far superior.

Dorwart (2482) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Nice thick and creamy head. Brown in color and settles nicely. Slightly roasted aroma with a helping of hops and malt. Maybe a little malted milk ball. Expected a little more from the aroma. Kind of thin and bland. Color is deep, dark ruby/brown. Flavor is a little thin also. More roasted grains, a bit of coffee and more hops. Pretty fizzy in the mouth. Finish is slightly bitter and now the bittersweet chocolate shows up. An ok porter.

Nice thick look. Smell of hops. Flavor is of course very hoppy. My over all impression is high of this beer very thick and tasty beer.

Just a little hoppy for a porter I thought. A nice deep brown in color. Smooth, a little thin. Hops seem to take over and predominate in the finish.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
Dark brown beer witha huge cloudy tan head. Very subtle chocolate and coffee aroma, perhaps masked by the persistent head. Flavour is fairly thin, caramel, chocolate with a big hop bitterness. As it warms however, more chocolate character comes out, although the body was still a bit thin.

IndianaRed (3221) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Extremely dark reddish brown with little head, persistant lacing. I didn’t detect much of a chocolate. Faint aroma in general, but pleasent. A bit bitter and hoppy, not as smooth as other porters Ive had. Carbonation feels a bit high. Acidic tingly feel on the tounge with bitter earthy aftertaste. A little sediment left at the bottom. In general not as drinkable as some of my faves. Just OK.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 This was a very nice, sweet, light, drinkable porter. It didn’t amaze me with really strong flavor, but it was very pleasant and went down smooth. I liked the aroma of chocolate flavor, the texture was pretty good, coudl have been a little thicker. I would drink it again.

Poured a dark brown, almost opaque black, thick tan head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. A little thin on the palate. The flavor is just bitter as hell coffee abd roasted malt. Very, very bitter finish. I was not a huge fan of this beer.Your money would be better spent on a six pack of Anchor porter.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 Dark as can be, with a redness underneath. A tan head. Deep chocolate, coffee, fruity flavor. Not especially full bodied, but flavorful.
