UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 This was quite good, though I prefer their stouts. Aroma of roasted coffee, and a smooth taste of light spices and rich coffee. Better than middle-of-the-road but not exceptional.

An excellent porter. The smell reminds me of coffee, and the taste that follows reinforces that notion. The taste is full but dry, and seems to be missing something to me.

I don’t know what it is I don’t really like about this beer but I don’t. It has a good roast malt flavor that I love, sweetness in just the right amount body is perfect but there is just something there. Go ahead and try it though most others don’t have my reaction

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2003 Light and fluffy with a strange, but overwhelming fish nose. Roasty. Pasteurized. Too much fish in the aroma of this beer.
