maltdog (617) - Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Inky, oily black in the glass with a small but lasting mocha head. Raisins, prune, tangy licorice (treacle?), and pinesap in the nose. Smells become fruitier as it warms. Tastes of darkest roasted grain, espresso, unsweetened chocolate, and broad earthy bitterness. Long finish with these same flavors, ends somewhat chalky. Actually seems more bitter afterward, like charcoal.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Pours an opaque black with a thick dark tan head that dissipates slowly and has great lacing. The aroma is piney and fruity with some malt. Mouthfeel is so deep, rich, and creamy and it is so smooth, it's hard to find the tastes, I guess roasted upfront which follows into a subtle piney hop bite that blends very nicely. Overall, this is an excellent porter.

guzzler67 (1502) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2003
Cannot get any darker. Luscious fruity aroma. Smooth, full-bodied, complex taste like a dessert wine. Creamy texture was offset with a nice hoppy bite in the finish.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Completely black with tan head. Aroma of malt, berries, bread, dark chocolate. Incredibly think body, whole chocolate milk, touch of red wine, but enough hop bitterness for balance. Excellent porter.

mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2003
pitch black, tan head. big complex aroma of chocolate ice cream, raisins, coffee, roasted earthy malt. flavour follows, starting more roasty and as it warms it becomes more chocolately and smooth. excellent.

Yeastmaster (44) - USA - OCT 4, 2003
Has an aroma of sweetened motor oil (which is a bad thing) and similar appearance (which is a good thing). Flavors are very complex, but too 'peppy' for me. No consistent theme: I taste coffee, dark berries, roasted wood, lots of malt, and I don't know what else. I'd like this better if it was less complex and equally bitter, or less bitter and equally complex.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Bottle from 1996. Opaque black color with a nice medium dark brown head. Aroma of cocoa, malts, and raisins. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, and licorice. A fair amount of bitterness comes through. This was very smooth, and has aged wonderfully.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2003 Puors black and oily looking with a sandy brown head that kind of grows in the glass, if you know what I mean. Smells of alcohol and grapes. Thick and mouth coating, with a touch of sweetness, then a big bitter finish. As the glass warms, though, alcohol seems to dominate the flavor. Pretty good porter, though. Note tried this again recently. Bumped up my overall.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Poured a completely opaque black with a thick, dark khaki head. Nice lacing. Aroma was of dark roasted coffee and malt. Tasted of roasted malt with a smooth, lightly bitter coffe-like finish. An excellent porter.

MaBeer1972 (1308) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2003
A jet-black coffeelike porter with a thin brown head. Very nice malty flavor with chocolate-caramel undertones. Doesn't taste like 7.2%. Nice smooth finish too!
