A hearty ebony colored ale that starts with a rich malty palate finished with clean hops and notes of coffee and chocolate.

kramer (5501) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with chestnut highlights, with a thick creamy one finger light brown head above. This is as good as a Porter can look. Great aroma of chocolate malt and roast with a drying yeast character. Big full flavor balanced between the chocolate, roasted, and burnt malts. Finish is very dry and moderately bitter with a bit of charred wood. Mouthfeel is full bodied and oily in texture with a dry and slightly astringent finish. A very flavorful and well made Porter. Big and bold, just the way I like ’em.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2006
12oz. bottle. Dark brown almost black pour with a rocky tan head. Hops, smoke, and chocolate erupt from the glass. The flavour is rich and complex with notes of dark brown sugar, caramelized walnuts, and espresso. I’m not so sure this is still a porter... seems more like a stout. Well, call it what they will this beer is fantastic.

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Eyedrinkale via trade. Very roasty aroma with lots of grain and coffee mixed with chocolate and light pine. Pours a dark brown with some light red hilights along the bottom of the glass. Nice tan head with very good retention and okay lacing. Moderate chocolate throughout mixes with a light fruitiness in the middle. Finish is very roasty with grain, coffee, and some piney hops. Mouthfeel is a little thin but still creamy. A very nice porter.

This porter pours a dark brown color with a light-brown head. Aroma is of moderate malts with roasted, burnt, and nutty notes. Also vanilla. Initial taste is light bitter that continues through to the finish. Creamy on the palate with no carbonation.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Thanks to Lou18 for this one. Poured dark black with a light brown head. The aroma was HUGE coffee, bread, chocolate, carmel, and malts. Unbelievable coffee smell, add in the other aromas and combine and you have a beer orgasm. Flavor is coffee, nuts, and chocolate. Lush malt body with the perfect balance. The flavor and aroma are superb. What a joy this one is.

Cobra (1100) - - FEB 19, 2006
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with a faint, tan colored head. Aromas are subdued. Malts, coffee & chocolate come thru somewhat. Flavors are of too much coffee, way too much chocolate malt too. Medium mouthfeel. Needs work, & needs to be better balanced.

OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2006
12oz bottle poured a dark brown (almost black) with a very good tan head. Good lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma was roasted malts and dark fruit (dates or raisins). Flavor was a very good roasted malt and coffee flavor with a bit of a hop finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with Lou18 - Thanks Lou! - Pours black with a nice big creamy tan head that stays well and laces the sides of the glass in patterns. Aroma is roasted malt, big coffee, and some nice milk chocolate as well. Flavor is nice and roasty as well. Definitely some smoke in this one. Coffee, lots of coffee, and some sweet milk chocolate shows through in the middle then gives way to the coffee flavor again and a slight bitter dry finish. Creamy and mouthcoating on the palate and very smooth to drink. Very well done.. Just my style of porter..

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Fantastic milieu of colors in the head, a sheen of rich coffee w/ a dark black hued body. Taste is of a prevalent roasted malt barley w/ some sweetness & obvious coffee. Solid medium body, enjoayble on the palate, smooth w/ a touch of crisp btterness on the finish.
