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.

Bov (11698) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 9, 2004
very dark-brown colour, chaotic foam with big bubbles, roasted coffeish aroma, chocolate, sweet and oily, the finish is slightly dry and bitter with long and subtle chocolatey notes - mmmmhh this is good !

3fourths (9019) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Dark brown. Some burgundy colors at the edge of the glass. Light tan head. Creamy nose, caramel, toffee and milk chocolate nose. Medium bodied, with a light ash tray flavor, with an aged quality along with the regular creamy malts. OK at best... flavor is overall very sour and lactic.

Dorwart (2500) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Had to fight like hell to get a head on this beer. Large bubbles which did not last long. Swirling produces a nice thin foam. Nice roasted aroma. Roasted grains, burnt fried fish sticks and a good helping of licorice. Color is a deep port. Flavor is a bit watery and gritty. Tastes like there is some carbon present. Distinct burnt flavor with a bit of molasses. Finish is dry and smooth. Lingering bitterness and roasted flavor. Great aroma but is a little short in the flavor department. Thanks to radiomgb for this one!

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Very dark with a ruby tinge. Almost headless and lightly carbonated. Subtle aromas of chocolate and malts. There is a grainy, almost burnt sugar taste that is balanced with some bitterness. Nice toasted aftertaste. Substantial but not too thick or overpowering with a simple, but addictive flavor. Bonus points for the old school bottle.

This one seemed like it may have suffered from being light struck, but still enjoyable. Obvious roasty nose, but much less bitterness in the flavor, with a lot of malt. One that I will have to try again.

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2004
Roasted malt candy with an underlying bourbon note...Roastiness verges on smokiness and monopolizes the bitter dimension...Green hops coexist snuggly at the taste level with the malty exploration but never impart bitterness...A minty character accompanies the near-cask mouthfeel for a quite pleasant pint of porter...Thanks Kimchee!!...

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2004
I don’t know how to describe this one... is it smoky?... malty?... maybe a little of both? It hints at chocolate, but like the Oilers (Houston), it chokes in the clutch. Still, not a bad offering- just not one I would get again.

caesar (6430) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2004
Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some licorice. Taste is smooth malty. Not quite strong, but nice.

jerohen (2156) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2004
Dark appearance, small head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts. Flavour lacks some complexity, but is fairly enjoyable. Nice brew.

trubman (2) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2004 does not count
Nice roasted aroma, unfortunatley, no real head to go with it. I enjoyed the creamy texture and mild roasted flavor. The bottle is very cool. A nice smooth brew...would definitely try again
