COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

PhrankSlovacek (54) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Chocolate and coffee aroma. Dark brown color. Sweet chocolatey, smooth taste. Good tasting well crafted porter. Worth a try or two.

firemedic713 (169) - Palm Bay, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Dark brown color, pours with small tan head. Earthy, ferrous, dark bitter chocolate, and bitter hops. Very nice porter in a very attractive bottle.

Gunny (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Dark brown with ruby tinged edges and a thin tan head. Distinctive roast aroma with notes of nuts and chocolate. I noted a faint metallic/ferrous scent as well. The initial flavour is all about malt with plenty of chocolate and a balancing dark roast bitterness. The finish fades too quickly with some metallic/ferrous notes.

baobubba (455) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Dark brown with amber glints and a very thin sheet of white bubbles. Malty with a stron backing of molasses and touches of earth and dark fruit tanginess. Semi sweet with a light-moderate bitter finish. Raost lingers. Good porter.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Dark brown color, pours with small tan head. Aroma is malty sweet with toffee, coffee and small roast flavors. Little bitterness to speak of. Moderate body correct for the style. Balanced finish, excellent porter.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 27, 2004
Bottle - Poured a translucent dark brew with absolutely no head and no carbonation. Aroma of toffee. Taste is a bit sweet, with some toffee and some bitterness. I’m not sure if this is a bad bottle, but the lack of carbonation is very annoying and leaves a bad taste in my mouth. This beer also lacks a strong body and the chocolate/coffee taste should be more detectable. Overall, a very disappointing beer that I will try at least one more time to ensure that I didn’t get a bad bottle.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
Black/ruby tiney sudsy head. Smokey malt aroma. Hopped with some molases bitter. Alcohol comes through but not in the forefront. Earth, berry tartness, coffee and chocolate notes. Some anise. Finishes dry. Very good porter.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2004
Bright auburn color, tan bubbly head. Milk chocolate nose with a touch of roasted coffee and light organic notes. The nose is quite pleasing with hints of chocolate. The body is coffeeish at the front with a slightly sweet milk chocolate middle. The end turns into some light organic bitternss that lingers. Bittersweet finish. Nice porter, light yet tastey.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Thin mouthfeel to it and a sweeter aftertaste but not much more to it. Aroma isnt particularly amazing, and the appearance, well, looks like almost every other porter.

possumjc (149) - Charleston - Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Chocolate and caramel aromas with a touch of fruit scents. Nice dark red opaque color with a thin tan head. Chocolate flavor with a hint of hops flavor. Very nice beer in a very attractive bottle.
