Has a very dark brown color with little carbonation and a hop smell. Taste is roasted/smoked malts and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall I was kind of disappointed with this beer as I could not taste the chocolate...Maybe I should have another...

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Deep black brown with moderate beige head and fairly low condition. Quite fruity aromas laced with coffee, chocolate and a slight tart phenolic edge. Soft and sweet in the mouth with some coffee and some more fruity tartness, like a flat cola. Finish was not as full and long as I expected, with a brief coffee roast bitterness

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Black as night just the way I like my beers. Roasted malts fill this aroma and a good bitter aftertaste is left. Very full and appetizing porter.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUN 3, 2003
This beer pours a very dark color with a moderate brown head and moderate lacing. The aroma is full of burned malts and there are hints of coffee as is appartent with most porters. The taste is very strong and it is extremely full-bodied. There is a moderate amount of spice that is present but I cannot find the chocolate that is supposed to be there. Not a bad porter overall, but I'm not a fan of porters, so this gets a medium rating.

Taste of quality. Rich, roasty, crisp, and bitter just the way I like a porter.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2003
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.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
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

tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2003
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.

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.
