Pours deep black with ruby highlights. Lasting tan head. Nice roast coffee aroma, with a touch of berries and biscuit. Flavour is balanced chocolate malt and roast coffee. Almost a bit of a piney/resiny hop flavour there too. Very smooth mouthfeel. Nice stuff!

Almost opaque black in colour with no head. Aroma of roasted malt. The flavour is a nice combination of roasted malt and chocolate flavours. Nice bitter finish.

Dark brown. Tall lasting beige head. Fruity aroma with black currants. Yeast. Good carbonation. Rich flavour. Coffee. Licorice. Roasted malts. Some underlying malty sweetness. Smoth, velvety palate.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Looks thinner than expected with a thumbprint of a head. Smells of sweet, rich chocolate malts. Full, nutty taste, like toasted pecans. Bitter hops play a strong role - mouth watering, causing puckering in the palate. Somewhat thin feeling, but the hops beef it up a bit. Taste improves as the beer warms a bit. A descent porter, in my humble opinion

Pours dark brown, almost black, with edges an attractive hue of dark red. One finger head, brown, medium sized bubbles that recede in about two minutes, leaving only a small amount of lacing but with interesting patterns. Smells of smoky sweetness, carmel and toffee. Taste is more bitter than the aroma would suggest. Roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate. Medium weight, lively carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish with big smoke on the aftertaste, also a lingering acidic quality.

Pours a muddy brown color with a ring of light brown lace. Subtle aroma of hops and roasted malt. Strong flavor of roasted malt with hops. Light body, dry texture, medium carbonation. Good porter.

jus10cider82 (67) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2005
(12 oz bottle) Very dark ruby with frothy head that lasts. Slight hop and musty nose. The mouthfeel is very light. I’m not liking the hops in this one at all. Smoke and coffe flavors are good but, I can’t get over the hops.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2005 Bottle. Black with a nice beige head. Malty and hoppy porter with liqourice and coffee flavors. Anchor does it better!

Lovely hoppy and burnt aroma, mild. Dark brown body, ruby tint, nice off-white head. Godd hoppy and burnt flavor, very smooth. A good session beer.
