Strong beer with a sweet aroma, bittersweet full flavour, and velvety aftertaste.

Excellent fluffy head. Dark ruby colour. Flavour is malty with a bit of roasty bitterness, and a splash of caramel mixed in. Thanks for sharing Doug!

Caramel and toffee aromas, pours a clear ruby, with a medium sized toffee head, and some pretty lace. Tastes of caramel, toffee and roasted chicory. Quite well balanced, medium bodied, nicely bitter. Well done!

Shag (2714) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Aroma is of raisins, caramel, and chocolate. A solid brown color and probably the lightest colored porter Ive encountered. Flavor is of slight alcohol, nuts, chocolate, caramel, raisins, and toffee. Wow! It has a very "Belgian" flavor if anyone knows what I mean. So why is this classified as a porter? I would say it's more of an Abbey Dubbel. But it's one fine beer regardless of its style.

CapFlu (4857) - 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 (13601) - 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 (21759) - 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.

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.

hopscotch (10198) - 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.

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.
