Kinz (3467) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Darkest brown apperance, rapidly fading head. Aroma of dark fruits, hint of chocolate. Medium body, predominately fudge flavors with a hint of plum. Very nice, if not insanely complex. Excellent example of the style.

I love porters and really enjoyed exposing myself to this one. Deep sultry malts with a black smoothness and an archaic earthy flavor. Ample tawny head the color of Eriophorum chamissonis trichomes that lasts to the end, lacing its way down the glass. The aroma is chestnut and dark roasted marshmallow both of which breach into the flavor with zeal. The carbonation is perfect and serves to solidify the palate and overall mouth feel. The hops lend exquisite bitterness moments after the malty tones are swallowed. There is also a slight lactic nature to the mouthfeel. Bottom line, one hell of a porter (though very stout-like) that everyone should expose themselves to as soon as possible.

Pailhead (5442) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2005 Bottle: Aroma is coffee, chocolate and cream. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Flavor is very malty and very high in chocolate. Very sweet. Some coffee with cream. Finishes more on the coffee side, with a chocolate and cream aftertaste. This is excellent. A must try. As of beer 71, this tops my list. Don’t know if this makes a difference but bottled in 1997, bottle #0950.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 Black colored, brown lasting head. Aroma has chocolate, caramel sweetness and roasted tones in aroma. Mild alcohol with some fruits comes up also. Almost full bodied. Sweetness, fruits, roastiness and coffee in flavor with medium chocolate. Ends with roasted, mildly bitter, dry and alcoholic tones. Aftertaste is pretty lasting.

I don’t know, tihs beer is an enigma. Pours really great, decent aroma for a porter, nice head and lacing, but the taste seems to be a little off... but in retrospect the flavor is ok. enigma...what the hell. seems like i got kicked in the head by a pack of wild hyenas, and then my throat got ripped out by a flock of roaming vampires and then my essence was drained by a murder of migrant tigers. weird stuff. not great, but not too bad.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2004
Deep black with caramel head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, smoke, and fruit. Strong bittersweet flavors combining very strong, almost burnt coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and mocha, all wrapped up in a smoky blanket. Thick and chewy while smooth and silky. Excellent roasted malt sweetness that finishes with a bittersweet finish. Perfectly balanced.

jsquire (3691) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2004
Dark beer with a brown foamy head that shrunk to a lasting ring. Dark molasses nose. Smokey bacon, hints of bitter chocolate and a nice burnt bitterness in the finish. Goes down very easy. Really nice beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2004
Malty, chocolatey aroma. Very dark brown in color, decent tan head. Rich malty flavor of chocolate truffle and nutty Munich malt. Moderate noble hop flavor. Even balance. Full-bodied and smooth. A rich and flavorful porter.
