biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Pours a deep, dark red with little head. Aroma of burnt sugar, cocoa, coffee and hops. Smooth on the palate while coating it with a pleasant acrid and burnt flavor. Balanced with some toffee flavor and sweetness. Low bitterness. Finishes quick with a mild lingering presence. Well made.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2005
35 cl bottle. Served in Ølfabrikken tulip. Color is near black w/ red highlights. Impressive, dense, off-white head that leaves fine lacing. Yummy, rounded coffee- and chocolate aroma w/ fine hop presence. The flavor is superbly balanced: slightly roasted, nicely hopped, fittingly dark. Good drinkability.

Bottle pours obsidian with 1.5” firm tan head. Aroma-Hopped Dark roast coffee Flavor-roasted malts with some citrusy, piney hops. Medium to full mouth feel. I thought it more stoutlike than porter

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Not a bad attempt at a porter. Kind of a starter porter, not too heavy or malty. If you tried to make a black and tan, I think the tan would win. Only thing that stands out is some decent hops.

Jine (900) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2005
While good, this did not make me want to lug heavy baggage onto passenger trains. Pretty hoppy for a porter, but not all that malty and porterey. More like for the guy who takes your ticket and punches ridiculous undiscernable holes with alacrity while wearing a silly hat.
