This one was a fancy vintage bottle (1997) and also numbered (#1921). This porter has restored my intrestet in porters. Deep dark brown pour with a lingering tan head...attractive. Very nice aroma with some dark berry scent coming through the expected roasted malty nose. Nice raosty balance with coffee and a sweet maltiness. And best of all, no burnt flavor! Yum yum.

This is a very good beer. I was pleasantly suprised and now this tops my porter list. Fruity aroma with hints of bitter chocolate and alcohol. Body is dark and black with a nice tan head. Flavor is good with fruit, coffee and roasted malts. Very nicely balanced and a pleasure to drink with none of the burn malt often found in lesser porters. Good palate and a must on my repurchase list

Bottle @ HBK Black Beer Festival, Nynäshamn Backlog 26 Nov 2004
Slightly acidic. Plenty of salty licorice. Remembered this as a classic beer, but at this festival it only managed to reach average.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown colour, brown, bubbly, medium, though quickly disappearing head. Molasses and cinnamon aroma. Bitter chocolate taste, with hnits of molasses and toffee. Lasting medicine-bitter finish. This bitterness is so awful that it spoiled the beer for me. Very nice, complex flavour, but again way too bitter to be really enjoyable.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Dark brown, almost black beer w/ a short lived light milk chocolate brown head. Chocolate malted milk shake, toasty wheat bread malt and diacetyl dominate at first. Some caramel that is toffee paired w/ the diacetyl. Roast is an afterthought. Very little fruitiness. Well balanced, but sweet malt flavored with chocolate and caramel. Bready malt flavor, semi sweet finish, like Nestle tollhouse morsels, and a lightly roasty dry aftertaste. Very little fruitiness in the flavor, but it is lightly raisiny. Very smooth bodied, well hidden alcohol, fuller medium body, low carbonation. Damn! This is a good beer. Alcohol is a little high for a session beer, but is well hidden and could be sort of dangerous if you are a porter or stout lover. Well Done!

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2004
1997 vintage
The pour is just fantastic, thick syrupy grape juice colored nectar. The aroma is mild - likely due to the mellowing of the hops. The flavor is also of red grape, but seems to just be starting to turn. I think this beer is on the downside of its prime, and will be seeking a fresher bottle.
