ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with reddish-hued edges and topped by a thin, fizzy off-white head. Smell: Faint cocoa aroma with some sharp fruity notes. Taste: Brown malts with a sweetish cocoa taste. A juggernaut fruity twanginess runs down all the other flavors. Hint of bitterness. Sourish finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A bit of a disappointment, I didn’t care for this porter at all.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a transparent mahogany with ruby hues and a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, doughy caramel malts with a touch of milk chocolate character. Body starts a little thinner and effervescent with some mild roasty and chocolatey malts before a drier, coffee finish. Finishes smooth and bittersweet with some lingering roasted maltiness.

BuckeyeBoy (2722) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 18, 2007
12oz Bottle dark redish brown topped with a tan head. A nice roast on the nose. Pretty light on the palate not as thick and full as I was looking for. Tast of a little chocolate and coffee. Not bad.

jake65 (2616) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle: Pours a deep chestnut brown with a large tan head. Nose is roasty and mocha tones, fairly mild. Flavor is light on the coffee and roast, subtle chocolate and bitters. Call this a porter if you will, but it feels like a brown ale...

Draft. Deep brown pour with a fothy, light tan head. chocolate malt aromas. Smooth chocolate malt flavor. Slightly fruity and pleasantly hopped.

pinkzambia (1478) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Bottle: Clear brown color with an off-white head. Tangy chocolate aroma. Typical porter flavors of coffee grounds and hints of smoke. The feel is thin and slippery. The brew isn’t incredible, but fine.

ross (2088) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2006
Bottle obtained in the beer swap v2.0 from cbkschubert (thanks!). Brown color without a head at all. Smell is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, some hops. Taste is sweet and rich, toasted and coffee flavor. Not really much to this one, but its refreshing and seems to do the trick. Solid porter.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2006
Bottle. This is about as fine an example of a Brown Porter as we can expect on this continent. It has a deep brown color and a fine head. The nose is chocolate malt coupled with inviting British floral hops. The flavour follows through perfectly and if anything the complexity is enhanced by some additional caramel and dark malts but it does not loose its floral hop backdrop. I tasted this side by side with Sierra Nevada Porter and this one dropped Sierra Nevada off the table. Much more complex and long lasting. A finely crafted beer - well worth seeking out.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. Flavor and aroma is light roasted malt. Nice long lasting head with light lacing. Light to medium body. If you can find it, drink it. Smooth and easy drinking.
