Looks thinner than expected with a thumbprint of a head. Smells of sweet, rich chocolate malts. Full, nutty taste, like toasted pecans. Bitter hops play a strong role - mouth watering, causing puckering in the palate. Somewhat thin feeling, but the hops beef it up a bit. Taste improves as the beer warms a bit. A descent porter, in my humble opinion

Pours dark brown, almost black, with edges an attractive hue of dark red. One finger head, brown, medium sized bubbles that recede in about two minutes, leaving only a small amount of lacing but with interesting patterns. Smells of smoky sweetness, carmel and toffee. Taste is more bitter than the aroma would suggest. Roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Medium weight, lively carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish with big smoke on the aftertaste, also a lingering acidic quality.

Pours a muddy brown color with a ring of light brown lace. Subtle aroma of hops and roasted malt. Strong flavor of roasted malt with hops. Light body, dry texture, medium carbonation. Good porter.

(12 oz bottle) Very dark ruby with frothy head that lasts. Slight hop and musty nose. The mouthfeel is very light. I’m not liking the hops in this one at all. Smoke and coffe flavors are good but, I can’t get over the hops.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Bottle. Black with a nice beige head. Malty and hoppy porter with liqourice and coffee flavors. Anchor does it better!

TBone (14610) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2005
Almost opaque dark brown, small creamy expresso head. Aroma is flowery hops. Medium-bodied, soft, flowery hops in mouthfeel, some roasted notes in the finish. Well-balanced, good porter.

The everpresent Sierra Nevada bitter hops finish is here and makes this porter a little more refreshing than say a an Anchor Porter but overall is less chewy and I like substance in my porter over a crisp finish. A good porter but I prefer the Anchor slightly.
