Pretty boring. Flavor isn’t incredibly complex. Tastes like a combination of every porter that I have ever had. Not a stand out in the field, but not a bad beer in any way.

Dark with off white head. Taste is of roasted malts with a bitter finish. Decent hop taste behind the roasted flavor. Easy to drink and flavorable if not as robust as some porters. Avalibility also tends to be a strong suit, nice to see I can pick this up in grocery stores when I don’t have time to find a decent beer store.

Pours dark with an off white head. Head is lasting and quite foamy. Flavors of roasted malts and chocolate. This porter is fairly light bodied but drinks very smoothly. Not too sweet and alcohol does not shine through

Bottle. Better porter than I would have thought from such a "mainstream" micro. I enjoyed this. coffee aroma, with a hit of roasted flavor. Tasted a lot like the stout from this company.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2006 Lots of roasted coffee in the aroma. Malty, roasted flavor that was tasty. Very similar to the stout, but I this one is better. More body to the porter. A delicious porter, its hard to put my finger on it, this one is well done. Something anyone should try. Go past the single and get the 6-pack!

(02.20.06) 12 oz brown bottle purchased from Archer Liquors, Chicago, IL. Pours opague black with small tan head. Soft carbonation. Roasted coffee on the nose. Light-to-medium bodied porter that starts essentially dry with tiny malt sweetness and intense roasted malt/coffee flavors. Smooth and creamy with light sharpness in the mouth. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness and roasted malt fade. Though slightly thinner bodied, the flavor, aroma and palette characteristics of this porter are very much like the Sierra Nevada stout which I thoroughly enjoyed. I gave both the same rating since I loved them both equally. This is an excellent flavorful porter with a mouth-watering aroma.

12 oz bottle. Dark, opaque with a dark, dark brown hue. Smokey, cocoa aroma. Coffee, woody and bittersweet chocolate in the aroma. Sweet and zesty, lively. Smooth and lingering. Me Likey! Initially, sweet caramel and lively hops, then coffee, and the bittering agents, leaves the gums tingling. Sweet molasses and a breadiness somewhere in the middle. This is a good Porter!
