OhioDad (2493) - 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 (2159) - 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 (1845) - 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.

ericnixon (740) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2005
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 ;)

Ratman197 (9940) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pours a dark reddish-brown with a small amber head that shrinks quickly. Smokey malty aroma with some coffee notes. Dry malty flavor up front with a hint of coffee. Finishs dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Smells almost like a smoked porter. Reddish brown with little head. Flavoring is more reminiscent of a nut brown ale than a porter - not that sweet, but has some tanginess. The slight dryness in the finish is unfortunate.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Bottle in Bellevue, ID
Dark black color with light head and no lacing. Nose of robust roast and light coffee, vanilla. The flavor is fairly 2 dimensional, roast and sharp carbonation but has some smoothness to it. Finishes non-creamy and a bit bitter but overall tasty. Nice find!

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark clear mahoganey, average sized creamy off-white head. Light chocolately vanilla aroma. It is pretty sweet indeed. Sweet chocolately coffee, with more vanilla. Mouthfeel is ok.... good amount of flavor, but a bit thin on the tongue. Overall, ok, but could be better.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Dark ruby color with a thin off-white head. Roasty, cocoa and osme brown sugar in the aroma. Light roast, some vanilla, a little coffee. A pretty solid porter.
