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.

Dark Brown pour from a very cool Victorian looking medicine bottle. Toasted malt aroma, but very light and you really have to breathe deep to smell it. Bitterness is very present. Only mildly toasted flavors of coffee and choclate. Has a sassafrass sweetness initially, but the bitter dominates.

A delicious, aged, smoky porter. Great looking bottle. Classy. Not overtly sweet. Suprisingly smooth. Perfectly bitter!

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Deep translucent red-brown body, tiny light tan head. Aroma is a strange mix of toasted black malts and barley sugars/cereals (it reminds me of a non-alcoholic malt soda). The flavor is surprisingly sour and tangy with sharp malt sugars and light roasted notes leading to a distinctly woody, bitter finish. Somewhat sweet. Decidedly British and not bad!

skortila (5287) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2004
In my opinion, this porter is much underrated. Itís a perfectly balanced porter. Well okay it is lacking a little complexness. Aroma is malty (roasted, coffee/chocolate). Hazy, brown-black coloured with a lasting brown, thin head. Taste is malty (roasted, coffee/some chocolate). Initially sweet. Quite bitter towards the finish. A bit a mixture between sticky and dry. Lekker!

Bottle. Near black with small head. Coffee, liqoruice root, tobacco and especially smoked malt. Medium body.

DarkElf (3051) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 14, 2004
(16.9 oz bottle, $4) This is my second try with this beer, as the first attempt a year and a half ago was extremely sour in the nose and flavor, and clearly a bad bottle, so letís try this again; The nose here smells lightly roasted, malty, slightly hoppy, but the key here is that it doesnít smell sour, so yippee!!! And nope, the flavor isnít sour either; Itís dark roasted, almost burnt, and fairly bitter, with very little sweetness to it; The moderate smokiness easily jumps into prominence in the finish; The fairly dry palate is very thin and rather watery, very lightly carbonated, but with a somewhat soft mouthfeel; Medium brown color is lighter than most porters; I tried to pour a head on this beer, but the best I could get was some large bubbles, and Iím left with a sheen within a few minutes; Despite the lack of head, those few bubbles actually produce some sporadic lacing

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2004
Bottle. Pretty decent stuff. Nice soft almost oaty mouthfeel. Licorice and chocolate and of course roasted malt, soft, smooth, with some decent bitterness and som elight acidity. Pleasant porter.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 12, 2004
Creamy, nutty, chocolatey aroma. Nice dark brown color with a light brown head. Nice mocha flavor, and like the aroma, there are hints of chocolate. The palate is somewhat thick and grainy feeling with a little bit of carbonation and a bitter aftertaste. Quite an enjoyable beer.
