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

johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 Dark coffee brown, with a small brown head that diminishes quickly. Roasted coffee malt nose. Medium body, fairly thin and insubstantial mouthfeel. Finish and follow provide the most interest, initial chocolate and coffee followed by rising roastiness. Quite drinkable, if unextraordinary.

12oz bottle. Coffee black pour. Fleeting head. Smells like coffee, burnt coffee. Malty and very roasty. A rich creamy body makes this fairly one-dimensional beer much more enjoyable to drink than it otherwise would be.

nick76 (4370) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Nice mocha aroma with floral hops, toasted malt, coffee, and brown sugar. The appearance is dark brown with a large head. The flavor has the same elements as the aroma. The finish is bitter. The palate is ok but the beer is much better than average.

A delicious looking porter with very little head retention. The initial taste is great, but the after taste is a bit lacking. I also don’t taste the mocha. Overall a pretty good porter.

bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2006
12 oz bottle. Tasted very similar to a toned down imp stout. Aroma of slight choclate and maltiness. Flavor was not as rich in choclate as I was hoping for. Was a little light bodied, but it was a porter. Not bad not great.

Gusgus (235) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2006
Bottled. Black colour. Smells of fermented green fodder, ripe apricots, bell peppers, chocolate and licorice. Soft light, bordering to thin palate. Very dry and burnt bitterness in the end.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown color with a thin tan head that faded quickly. An rroma of cocoa and coffee. It has a light body with a hop bitterness that stays from start to finish. I think that this Porter is a mid level brew with plenty of room for improvment.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2006
(Bottle) Pours opaque and brown with a tan head. Coffee and toffee aromas. Some burnt coffee and yeast notes, but not a whole lot of direction in this beer. Good to try, but not that great.

after4ever (7479) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 14, 2007
12-oz. Solid black body with a rocky, bubbly tan head that shines in the light. Light coffee and chocolate in the nose. Very mild attack; medium body, low carb, restrained flavors. Mid-palate’s got the coffee and the chocolate again, though not in any great quantity. Tingly, peppery dry finish. Not sure where the brewer’s getting the "light cream finish" in their description; must be the marketing department. This is a nice little porter but very subdued and mainstream.
