bhensonb (14162) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, and perhaps coffee. Opaque brown/black color with ruby hilites on the edges. A beige head stays. A bit thin in body; moderate, almost creamy carbonation. The flavor starts with roasted malt, accompanied by significant bitter. There are notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish is very dry, bitter, and has remnants of burnt toast and baking chocolate. A very subtle sour touch comes and goes.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2008
650ml bottle - thanks, Anna’s parents!
Almost black, dense tan head. Sweet roasty malts in the aroma. Fairly soft palate, with an immediate burnt edge noticeable on the back of the tongue. Taste is focused on that drying charcoally burnt edge, and is at first a little uninspiring. Some pleasant spiky hops build over time, which makes it a far more interesting brew. Certainly nothing particularly wrong with it - it’s a pretty tasty quaffer as it’s not too unbalanced.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a large creamy light brown head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Full flavor with a bitter sweet finish of medium duration.

Ratman197 (13404) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Bottle poured a clear brownish black with red highlights and a large lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of roasted malt coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, light coffee and a hint of cocoa with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish. Kinda on the watery side for the style in my opinion.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2006
Bottled, 650ml, pasteurised. Black with ruby hue, brown tan head. Thick and dry porter with a heavy, tarry nose and a heavily roasted malt body. Plenty of chaffy notes with a coffee husk background and a touch of treacle. Bitter on the finish, its fine but not refreshing.

(2/13/02) Very nice porter. Obvious coffee overtones, though the chocolate isn’t far behind. very smooth. hops make their presence noted more in the aftertaste than anywhere else. (8/4/8/4/16)
