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.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Tremendous effort. The head on this brew is impressive, thick and tan, towering far above the rim of the glass. The hop character is evident in the floral aroma. Lightly sweet, but not cloying, with ample earthy bitterness. Bitter coffee with light chocolate notes. Thin enough to be easily drinkable, thick enough to be filling. A old style porter and a well done one at that.

Dark brown with very little head. Strong initial chocolate flavor that leaves you with coffee. A very nice beer.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Poured a cola brown color with very little carbonation. A nice combination of roasted malt, coffee, and a little chocolate. Lightly smokey. Finish is mostly coffee. Pretty good, enjoyable.

First gotta say this stuff rocked. Full bodied, smoky, great balance of sweet and bitter. All of the good things I like in a porter and my favorite beer from this brewer.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Sour coffee and nice chocolate aroma and a kiss of hops. Very dark translucent red with voluminous tannish green head? I like the smell. Think body, almost sour, like a dark roast coffee. Hoppy finish, very smooth, coffee aftertaste. pretty good, not great.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Classic black beer with tan head. Sour coffee aroma. Similar java, yet sweet, flavors ... almost tart, an odd combination.

frankR (144) - Davis, California, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Black liquid, creamy head that mostly diminishes, little lacing. Flavour is tar and roasted malts, a lot of green bottle character present. Rather undrinkable.

VAYankee (345) - Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Dark brown (and slightly transparent) body with a frothy light brown head. Mild aroma of coffee lightly roasted, slightly malty and chocolatey. Start out abrasive - a quick burst of cocoa is quickly subverted less than pleasing smokeyiness and saltiness. OK finish of dry roasted malt. I am not a big fan of this beer.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
I’m told this is one of the best representations of a true porter. It is unique, and I quite enjoy it. Almost a cola like appearance; subtle chocolate and spice aroma. Balanced malty body, nice bitterness in the finish. Not for everyone, but this one really impressed me. In bottle.

Nice bottle created a nice poor, but somewhat light in appearance and flavor. I initially liked this quite a bit, with decent chocolate flavor, until it was outdone by a Founder’s.
