Aroma of coffee, and alcohol. Pours black with a brow head. Taste of chocolate and coffee. Cannot detect the alchol in the palate. The perfect night cap.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Definitly a Robust Porter. Roasted and toasted malt. A mouthful of flavor with a dry bitter finish. Great for dessert or on a cold night.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 Dark brown pour with an off white head. The aroma is dominated by coffee beans and also has mocha and hops. Solid but not real complex. The taste is kind of like the IPA but with coffee and mocha added to it. This is very hoppy for a Porter which is interesting. There is some roast in the flavor resembling coffee beans. It works effectively here. This is a fine Porter that I can’t wait to try again.

Dark, translucent, reddish-brown body with a tan head. Hoppy aroma with some interesting fruitiness. Very plummy with some light roast. More roast emerges in the flavor. Tastes like burnt plums and C-hops. Nice assertive bitterness. Medium-full body. Very enjoyable and distinct. Thanks Eric.

Solidly coffee dominant flavor. Very good, thick mouthfeel for a porter. Probably the best I’ve had of this style.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Deep brown almost black with a deep beige head which lasts. Aroma is of toffee and chocolate. I didnt notice too much roastiness although there was some. Ths is what I like about good porters. Stouts are good with roasted barley- porters not so much. Flavor is of slight burnt malts and some chocolate along with a good hoppy bitterness to balance out the thick malty body. Medium to big body and mouthfeel, with a good smooth silky finish. A very rich and complex porter deserving of its high overall score.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Bottle: Pours almost black with a nice medium sized brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, a bit of coffee. Flavor is rich, loads of roasted malt and a bitter coffee finish. Full bodied. Very nice.

zach8270 (3582) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Dark black with red highlights and a very slight tan head. Very rich and tasty coffee, chocolate and burnt malt aroma. The flavor is extremely full of toasted malts, coffee and has a nice chocolate finish to it. Extremely smooth, easy to drink and quite delicious. Very nice sweet malt aftertaste. Am definitely going to buy this one again.
