I think this is a good porter, dark with a foamy head, looks nice. Good initial flavor but finishes a little sour. Enjoyed it.

This is a surprisingly good porter. The first thing I noticed after pouring it into a glass was a lasting foamy head and deep mocha color. Very smooth silky mouthfeel. The taste, however, brings the entire thing down. It has a quite sour aftertaste, not the greatest attribute.

Pours out dark brown color with a head. Nut aroma. Nice flavor, nutty and roasted malt. Kinda hoppy. Very smooth. Nice brew.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 25, 2004
Very dark brown (almost black) with red hints. Aromas are predominently of roasted grain, nuts, and hops. Flavor wise, there is some chocolate and coffee going on, but nothing too sweet. Lots of hop bitterness, which I havenít really encountered before in a porter, but itís still nice. Above average mouthfeel. A solid, but unspectacular beer.

Dark brown in color with tan head. Tastes and smells of chocolate and coffee, without being overly sweet. The head and overall palate was a bit thinner than expected.

This was a nice porter...given, iíts not Anchor Porter, but it has a nice, chocolately feel, with a nutty twinge. Kinda bitter, but not bad.

Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Nose is malty and hoppy, faint bourbon-like character. Lace on glass. Flavor is of roased malt and bitterness. Finishes with bitter, smoky character.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2004 Good ruby brown color with a small tan head, leaves good lacing. Roasted coffee aroma with a hint of chocolate. Initial bitterness is strong, full mouthfeel. Pretty good porter, would get again.
