MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This beer poured a beautiful ebony in the glass and you did not have to put your nose to the glass to smell the roasted coffeee and dark cocoa. A small, but thick tan head, that quickly dissapates to a dirty ring that clings to the glass all the way down. The beer has a medium texture with a taste transition from sweet to hoppy and bitter. Somewhat syrupy on the palate, with a hoppy bitter finish. One great Porter and triumph from Smuttynose.

a bottle from RichlikeBeer. dark brown with a quickly fading tan head. a medium bodied porter with a bittersweet chocolate flavor. on the finish, the hops are mild and there is a hint of a coffee flavor. there seems to be an underlying acidic taste that just doesn’t sit right on my palate. not bad by any means, just not right for me.

jb (2511) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Very dark blackish color with tan head. The head goes away quick. Standard aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Sweet palate that ends with a nice hops kick. Full - bodied well - made porter.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
Dark brown body with a dense light brown head. Very nice aroma with roasted malts, coffee notes and a nice sweet touch. Roasted malty flavor, but really not that complex.
