A little suprised about all of the high ratings of this beer. I thought it very average and uncomplex for a Eastern porter. One word that epitomizes this brew is "chewy", it's almost like biting into a piece of toffee. Some nice roasted caramel tones. But not overly impressive.

Bittersweet chocolate plunders this beer. No nose at first...it only appears after things start to warm up. Very drinkable, but nothing special until halfway through the bottle. the alcohol starts to tingle more and bittersweet accents start to roll out everywhere.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - APR 15, 2003
This one pours a jet black color with a medium sized, dark tan, lasting head. The aroma is sweet with touches of alcohol, molasses, and coffee. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation, the flavor is sweet with malts and touches of roasted chocolate and coffee. The finish is sweet with a touch of bitterness. One of the better porters I have had, ranks up there with Anchor and Rogue as my favorites.

(Bottle). Pitch black porter, even held against the light. Tan head. Complex aroma of coffee, cocoa, dried fruits, ensilage(!) and oak. The full and rich flavour has coffee, bitter chocolate and loads of roasted maltiness. Not too sweet, just the right bitterness in the aftertaste. This must be a world class porter!

Dark as night, with a heavy alc. taste. It had a nice taste of hops, very small head.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Bottled in 2000,if that makes a difference?Nearly no head what so ever but what was there was chocolate brownand fast fadeing,color was coal mine dark,aroma was malty ,chocolatey and coffeeish.Flavor was really big raisins,coffee very lite,some prunes possibly,and some hints of chocolate.This is a big on flavor beer that the flavor and after taste seem to go on forever and at 7% alc. its well hidden and very unnoticable.the maltyness is huge with a nice full feel in the mouth,with an after taste that is sweet and fruity the finish is definately mellow sweet this is a new favorite for me to bad the price tag is so high at 6 bucks a bottle you couldn't afford to drink them for too long.

Eclipse black color. Small head. Aroma is fruity (raisins and apricots). A lighter bodied porter. Roaster malts are sweet, choclately and fruity. Hops are mild. Very drinkable. Touch of oak and smoke. Smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

thedm (4886) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 9, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 This brew has a very nice aroma for this Porter. Extremely dark brown color with a small light head filled with a mixture of all sizes of bubbles. Very heavy taste with an initial bite that soon fades. Subsequent tastes are not as bitter. All in all one of the better Porters I have tasted. Hotstuff did not rate the beer as she felt it had chocolate in it.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2003 Dark body and head. Chocolatey, slightly sweet aroma. Strong chocolate/nutty malt flavor. Incredibly soft mouthfeel. I'd like to see a bit more going on in the malt, but the chocolate that is there is powerful and delicious. Slightly woody/smokey, but mostly chocolatey. Extremely malty and well balanced, a great porter.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
1996 Vintage: Heavy mapley aroma, and dark color with quick head. The flavor was woody and broad, with hints of coffee and chocolate.
The 2003 is much drier with much less body. Again, one to let age.
