Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle. Opaque body with a fading head. Typical roasty/grapey porter nose. Taste-very much a porter. Vinous, malty, dark dried fruits, earthy. Nicely done.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Dark brown with a small brown head that diminishes to nothing. Scents of yeast and sweet roasted malt dominate the aroma. Flavor is very fresh with a chocolate malt flavor. More sweet toffe/caramel malt than bitterness in the aftertaste but not overdone; pretty well balanced.

(Bottle, courtesy of Kevin) Pours an oily black body with a moderate tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. The flavor complements the aroma nicely. Bittersweet chocolate finish. Thanks Kevin!

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Malty licorice aroma. Body was black with a small head on it. Good balance of hops and sweet malts to make this an enjoyable beer to drink.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle poured black with a thin white head. Nice heavy roasty chocolate and coffee aroma and flavor. Alcohol is very well hidden. nice medium body reminds me more of a stout than a porter. Very good.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Courtesy of BBB63. pours black with film for head that fades to a ring of bubbles. Aroma and flavor are full of roasted coffee with burnt grain. Finishes very clean and dry. Just too much coffee for my liking.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 Deep coke brown, nice off-white ring. Interesting bread and chocolate nose. Well integrated certainly, tending towards the malty side. Slightly floury sweetness, cakey roots, cerealic and pleasant. Drier in mouth, where the roasted grains procure a fair base for the chocolate bar and earthy malts to develop unto. Grainier than most all the way through, finishes a bit short, though with an excellent closure bitterness. Moderately high carbonation for the style, medium bodied. Good.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2005
Opaque brown, film of light tan head. Brown malt and bittersweet chocolate aromas. Mild roastiness melds with chocolate and alcohol. Some coffee bean astringency in the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly medium and smooth.

Crockett (1028) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2005
Pours dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Toasted crusty bread spiced fruit and plummy aroma. Lots of fruit, cocoa and a big coffee backbone. Nice mouthfeel. Finish is full of more slow roasted coffee and berry tart. Some minerals were also pronounced. T’was my last beer rated on the Friday of RBSG ’05. Suffering some palate fatigue; I sat out on quite a few for about an hour and a half. I came back to try one more.
