Dark garnet and no head. Nose is sweet and fruity with a touch of dark chocolate. Slightly thin bodied but still a bit sticky. Almost no carbonation. Vinous with hefty notes of raisins and molasses. Nicely rounded bitterness. Tasty.

Bottle. This was a rather bland tasting porter, whose flavors only came through in the finish. The flavors in the finish were or roasted chocolate. This might be a good porter for someone just starting out with datk beers, however it didn't do much for me.

Bottle pours deep dark brownish color with no head and no lace. The aroma is quite roasted. The flavor is roasted with a dry and fruity lingering finish. The palate is somewhat light. Overall, I'm glad I tried it, but it does not excite me too much.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
The color was dark amd sort of translucent. Aroma, bitter and sweet. The taste, however... not pleasant. Some sort of mildewy attack that goes straight to bitter. I really didn't enjoy it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sharp Roasty aroma, and very round. Very dark beer with brown head. Low carbonation. Smooth round flavor with Black Patent type finish. Delicate and sweet with low hop. Overall good, but could use a little more oomph.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 The name of this beer is honestly what caught my attention. Appearance is black with little head. Aroma is caramel, raisins, and coffee. Flavor is a little thin and slightly sour with a marked bitterness. Not the most complex beer but certainly a nice one. This may be the funniest beer name I’ve seen yet. Porter got back?! Nice "ass" beer? Ok I’ll stop!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very black porter allowing no light to shine through. Creamy head settles down to a thin slick oftan foam. Very stout-like in appearance. Has a dry roasted malt like aroma with hints of chocolate. Mouthfeel is not quite full but pretty close to a Guiness. Flavor is malty oats and a dry bitter chocolate. This is nearly a stout in my opinion. Not a great one but not all that bad either.
