Nearly opaque deep brown pour, medium light brown head. Light sweet malt aroma. Some finishing hops? Not much going on in the aroma, somewhat bland. Flavor is light as well... a little roasty malt, a little coffee, and some light bittering hops. A little lacking in flavor. Medium mouthfeel, very very short aftertaste, a little sweet. I must say, weak, but very drinkable...I could drink this all day.

Had this on tap at the Horseshoe Pub in Hudson. Has a very dark brown color with a small brownish head. Smell is is of roasted malts. Taste is of roasted/chocolate malts, nuts and finishes slightly bitter. Overall a fine porter.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Big tannish frothy head. Pale malty somewhat roasted aroma. Sweet malty flavor, a little in the mouthfeel. Bitter chocolate dominates yet has a zesty hop bite. Not an overbearing porter, still thirst quenching and tasty.

ambroze (22) - Old Hickory, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2004
hico county’s version of a porter. This one is smooth, a bit roasted, but without the common nutty flavor found in many porters. Not too malty. Nothing dominates or jumps out as acutely descriptive of this one.

33cl bottle from onlyfinebeer. Most enjoyable. Dark brown with beige head. Roast malt/chocolate/vanilla/caramel aroma. Good medium mouthfeel. Good roast finish with a little hop bitterness coming through.

Sept, 2003: Bottle. Smooth and malty with a nice mix of caramel and cough mixture. A very pleasant and easy drinking bit of the dark stuff. I’ll have another!

SDalkoholic (2232) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Nice thick head for a porter and decent lacing. Aroma is very weak and smells like stale chocolate. Flavor is slightly roasted malt, chocolate, and rice. Aftertaste is kind of a dirty mouthfeel and of wheat.
