CapFlu (4458) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
(75o ml bottle) Pours a thin, creamy beige head and a mahogany body. Nose of slight bananas, spice and toffee. Floral berry flavour with small malt and cask whiskey. Very Good!

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Chestnut colour with a light tan head. Aroma shows toffee, caramel, nuts. Lean toffeeish malt notes in the body. Light walnut, almond hints as well. Sweetish and pleasant, but does not capture my imagination.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2003
Bottled. Dark ambe with creamy head. Roasty coffee aroma. Sweet, malty and fruity, notes of plums. Woody, salty and quite pleasant. I'm always suspicious on beers in too fancy or gimmicky bottles, but this does impress.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Bottle. A ruby brown color with basically no head. Raisins and plums in the aroma. It doesn't resemble a porter I'm used to, although I do like the aroma. The body is very light, but the flavors reveal themselves early and finish well.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Deep Mohogany beer. Small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention and weeping lacework. Alcohol, copper, nickel, prune and dark chocolate in the aroma. Strong coffee and cocoa flavors. Astringent, but well-balanced. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, dry finish. Way overpriced, but I'm a beer geek. I had to try it.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2003
Mild caramel, nutty, and earthy notes with a medium brown color. A very cool presentation with the crock.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2003
I found this a major disappointment! Very unique bottle for a watery, thin, lifeless beer. Might be the lightest porter, and surely the clearest one out there. Green leafy, cabbage, and peat aroma. Some hops there. End is almost sour and strange. I hated it.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Well, you won't have to worry about this one becoming light struck - what a cool stone looking crock! I enjoyed this both very cold and warmed to a more proper temp. Either way, it was so etremely smooth, mild yet full flavored - malty caramel and interesting spices in the dry finish.

jaymobrown (1644) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Pale brown color. Hop nose. Slightly sweet taste. Had a dominant flavor of stewed cabbage.

beastiefan2k (2359) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2003
I dont know how old this beer is but it definitly isn't like any other porter. Nice fruity aroma and a great flowerly like taste. No bitterness and no taste of alcohol.
