Bottle poured black with nice creamy head and lacing. Roasty malt and coffee aroma. Flavor is roast malt lightly sweet and creamy. Rather light body but easy drinking porter. Good stuff.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2005
Dark, roasty flavor. I thought this to be quite hoppy for a porter. So much so, it nearly reminded me of a darkened version of Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale. Dry coffee flavor without the smooth mellowness of chocolate. Quaffable but not complex.

Rich, full, dark, and hearty. Good example of the porter style, good malty taste and nose.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2005 Bottle. Aroma very chocolaty. Dark brown with a thin white head and active carbonation. Frankly it looks like a Pepsi when poured. Solid mouth feel somewhere between most stouts and the SA pale ale. Lightly bitter finish. Flavor is surprisingly light, no where near as chocolaty as the aroma would suggest. Little coffee, little more hops than I expected, but nothing is overpowering. I had this for the first time last night around a campfire, and it felt very appropriate.

Bottle. Pours deep dark brown w/ a light brown head. Nose is hops and choclatey. Medium body. Tons of bitter coffee notes with the hops and malts both chiming in at the finish. Nice. Not as creamy and smooth as Anchor’s Porter.

BrewDad (5120) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2005
(BJCP Class) A strong hoppy flavored porter. This is a Northwest version of very beer add tons of hops. A god overall drinkable flavor with a great color and aroma. Dry, with a great roastiness to the finish also. Good Job and I will defiantly drink more of this beer.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 25, 2005
(Bottle) Dark mahogany brown body, full frothy tan head. Good lacing. Aroma not strong but mostly coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel medium dry, fairly smooth. Flavor mostly roasted coffee, but mild. Decent porter, flavor a bit too mild though.

An excellent every day beer. A bit fruity and sweet but not overpowering. Another great meal beer.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Dark brown/ruby with a medium tan head. Roated malt dominates the aroma. Smooth malty sweetness well balnced by roasted malt flavors. Well balanced by touch of hop bitterness in the finish. A reliably good porter, and true to the style.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Very dark and pretty with a warm, reddish hue. Creamy, dense head and a nose full of roasted malt. Flavour of roasted malt, but not sharp, bitter or burned - this is surprisingly sweet with notes of chocolate. Very high drinkability and accessibility, with strong flavours in spite of a rather light body. 181005
