Dark brown pour with ruby highlites at the edges where it meets the thick tawny head. Roasted malt, vanilla, caramel and lightly roasted coffee in the aroma. Flavors were about what I expected from the aroma with the addition of a nice subtle bitter hoppy kick in the finish. Hard to beat this porter if you’re looking for an easily accessable everyday (evening) porter.

Pours a nearly opaque, very dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramely, and chocolatey. Starts nice and malty sweet with some mild hoppy bitterness and a sticky and dry caramel finish with lingering dark chocolate notes. Well balanced, but could be a little thicker. A decent porter though.

Rich dark beer with a beige head.Nice sweet chocolate / coffee aroma,but the taste doesnt have the same impact.Good malty flavour,but slightly bitter on the finish which Im not used to.I like it,but I prefare the Anchor Porter.

Dark brown transparent, biege head. Has some roasty aroma, nothing to strong. Roast, toasty flavor which strengthens at the finish.

This is very nice. I am really starting to like Porters. Pours a similar color to Dr. Pepper with a creamy head. The head seems to have good retention. The lacing on the side of the glass is nice as well. The aroma has a pretty good complexity with caramel, chocolate, mocha, hops and dark fruits. The taste is a bit watery but still quite good with chocolate and hops being the dominant characteristics. This is a good session beer with solid drinkability. Kind of like a dark version of the Pale Ale perhaps.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2005 bottle - 3/17/05 - Pours black with a thick, very long lasting off-white head. Aroma of coffee and a hint of grain (?). Flavor is balanced... coffee...very good. The finish has a balanced bitter and maltiness. Overall, this is very good. Goes well with a block of mild cheddar cheese :)
