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.

EnderKiller (26) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2004
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.

rlgk (17317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2004
Black, small brownish head. Aroma from cocoa and cream, vanilla and fruity from plums and citrus. Flavor from coffee and it is a little bit sour. Good but not as good as some other beers from this brewery.

shadey (2073) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Bottle: Not as good as I remembered. The pour is dark brown and oily. Thin tan head. Slight coffee and carmel aroma and flavor. Nothing spectacular but not bad by any stretch. A decent porter.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2004
Bottled. Deep dark brown, tight almond coloured head. Alluring mocha aroma with a sweet taste that bites the lips before a long toastyness coats the throat and provides a long dry finish.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Pours like their Oatmeal Stout- dark mahogany. Aroma is winey and caramel. Big body beer with a sourness and richness unlike many porters. Quite unique and excellent.
