pinkzambia (1803) - 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 (2146) - 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.

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 (2901) - 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.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Pours dark brown with a creamy offwhite head that stays well and laces pretty well. Aromas of roast, and a little chocolate. Flavor is malty. Lots of roasted notes with some chocolate, and just a touch of coffee. Finish is somewhat bitter and dry. Pretty well carbonated and somewhat airy on the palate. Soft mouthfeel. Pretty drinkable but lacks the big flavor that I enjoy in a porter.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear dark amber/brown with a slight but lacy tan head. Surprisingly little aroma, with a bit of chocolate and coffee. Medium body. Taste starts malty sweet with some chocolate and a bit of coffee. Lingering bitter finish. Everything but the carbonation seems a bit light for a porter.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Brown with a small head. Nice aromas of bitter chocolate and mocha. Very good flavors. Chocolate blended with roast malts and some bitterness.

Very dark with a reddish hue around the edges. Chalky coffee aroma. Big fizziness in the first moment that fades into a mildly bitter, almost milky taste.

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 12, 2005
One of the better offerings from the Ruby Mountain brewery in Wells. Pleasant smell, the proper look for a porter, and the flavor-to me at least-is very pleasant. More dominated by chocolate flavor than anything, with hints of other things underneath. Surprisingly good beer for stuff made out in the middle of nowhere, if you can actually find it it is worth a shot or two.. or a six pack ;)
