UPDATED: FEB 21, 2007 Got a 6 pack at the local beer store. Dark coloring, rich and foamy head. Smooth tasting, but just a bit off. Definitely drink at least 2 of these before rating.

dark brown with dark airy head, Light aroma, there was just not that much being released. dry coffee and choclate taste at first with even a dryer and more choclate taste to finish. Nothing remarkable on the palate no true feel. I’ve had better porters

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Bottle. Very dark brown with creamy beige head. Little stands out about it, but all the classic flavors are there. Good aroma, but flavors not as potent as expected. Perfect balance of chocolate malts, coffee, vanilla and a slightly dry finish.

BCAR (222) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2005
bottle. Decent dark brown brew with a thin, short head. Coffee and chocolate are noted on the nose. Tasted like a poor homebrewing eperiment. Lacks body and depth. Thin and watery for the appearance. No real hop presence noted. Finishes as expected, blah.

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Dark body with just a hint of red glinting through. Small tan head. Medium-thick mouthfeel and somewhat roasty flavor. Pleasant and drinkable for a very dark beer.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a small fizzy head that fully diminished. At first sniff it appeared hoppy with hints of hay and pine. As it sat for a minute, the aroma went to chocolate and roasted. The flavor had an interesting mixture of chocolate and hops. Medium bodied. Starts bitter but left a sweet taste in the mouth.
