SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Bottle, poured a beautiful, thick dark brown with a large tan head. Roasted malts, burnt toast and light coffee aromas. Flavor features chocolate, prunes and coffee. Nice and smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a dark, dark brown that light can barely penetrate with a small amount of off-white head that dissipates to near nothing. Aroma is of pine needles, hops, and maybe molasses. Flavor is of a painfully hideous hop, pine needles. Nice try, but SNP fails. Sampled at 74 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Pours a nice dark brown, close to black, with very little head. Caramel aroma, some malt. Nice roasted malt flavors, with a slightly bitter finish. A pleasing porter.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Poors a deep dark amber color with a full head that lasted my entire burger (I ate slow). The flavor was a good roasted malty flavor with a good slightly bitter hop finish. The palate was nice and rich. This is now my bulk beer.

The Etruscan (498) - Tuscany, ITALY - SEP 6, 2003
Beige and weak head. Dark brown-black color. Aroma is malty, roasty with some coffe and raisins notes. Flavor is malty too, sweet with chocolate and fruity tones, ending in a slightly bitter and roasty finish. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 Dark, roasty, smooth, and strong. This is the flavor the comes to mind when I think of a porter.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Pours with a light brown head. The beer itself is a deep brown / black color, when held up to the light it is clear with brown notes to it. Smells of roast malt and coffee, definitely very malty-roast aromas as well. Tastes of smooth roast malt mixed with solid Willamette hop flavor that finishes the beer off. The hop flavor has always impressed me with this beer. There is a bit of coffee in the taste as well.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2003
12 oz bottle, tulip glass, 50 degrees. Average sized, dense, creamy, tan head is quickly diminishing and sits on a black body with cola to burgandy edges. Roasted grain, dark coffee malt; flowery hops; doughy yeast. Moderately sweet throughout with a lightly bitter finish. Slight acidity in the middle. Medium body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Nice little hop bite at the end. The bottom line is: admittedly this is a hard style to make really impressive for me, but this beer is definetly lacking.

carboloader (673) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Pours opaque dark brown with large tan thick bubbly head. Head mostly diminishes but hangs around a bit. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, smoke, and malt to me. I've smelled stronger porters but it's certainly on par. Flavor is less roasted and weaker than I expected. Slightly bitter finish. Tastes largely the same as their stout, but without the layer of hoppiness. Oddly, I prefer the stout. I would have expected the porter to have stronger roasted flavor.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 30, 2003
Dark brown color with a medium beige head. Nose is light malt with a hint of cocoa. Flavor starts sweet with a light cocoa coffee taste and finishes kinda dry with a touch of hops. A nice drinkable porter.
