This is a pretty good porter but I love other styles a little better. there is some kind of texture that turns me off to this, something kind of mettalic in the taste. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but still a rreally good porter

Great porter. Pours dark black with a burnt brown head. Laces nicely. Nose is deep and strong, with roasts smells and alcohol dominating. Taste is smooth and pleasant. Dry, roasty, chacolates and coffee coming through. Finish is slow and easy. A great beer all around.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Pours a jet-black with a small off-white head. Head goes fast. Flavor is very roasted, malt, coffee, choclate. Very balanced taste with a creamy ending. Very drinkable, and very enjoyable.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2004
Bottle. Opaque black oily body with a half finger beige head. Nose is malty. First flavors to come out are toffee, roasted malt, light hops, apple, and sugar. The mouthfeel is a little bit sour, like there is a touch of vinegar in it. Second flavor notes are pine, vanilla, and caramel. As far as power goes, this is a moderate porter. It isn’t overpowering, but it is not too mild. Leaves a bitter aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

Light aroma... light cinnamon hued head with a full pour. First sip filled the mouth with a gummy texture, sweet and smooth. Like malted coffee, vanilla bites and a dark chocolate finish with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Enjoyed it thoroughly and will have again!

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Pours black with tan head. Aroma is cocoa, vanila, and fig. Has the classic Sam Smith’s taste to it as well as chocolate and some coffee. I definately taste some slight vanilla as well. Has an oily mouthful.

Poured a dark brown with a light tan head, and has a coffee aroma, not a bad porter.
