boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Draft at TBBC. Very dark brown pour, almost black with a pretty, thin tan head with gleeming white froth, like milk atop a fresh cappucino. Aromas of caramel, hour old coffee, vanilla, leather, big cocoa, roasted malts and a little oakiness. Taste was similar, focusing on the coffee and chocolate, somewhat stout-like. The palate of this beer is like an American porter, not the English style they were shooting for. Long roasty finish, damn fine porter. Probably the best beer they make.

desurfer (1268) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2007
Dark brown body with no head. Aroma is light and faintly hoppy. Flavor is on the thin side, malty and sweet with little hoppiness. Finishes dry. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Porter poured brown and after a minute lost its head. Very light aroma. There seems to be a hint of roasted malts. The mouth feel is a bit thin. The flavor is mostly burnt malts with a faint chocolate malt note. This beer could use a bit more depth to break it away from the standard one dimensional Porter flavor. I think the Baltic Porter has ruined me and now most standard Porters seem a bit lacking.

kseecs16 (1214) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Poured a dark brown with a tannish head that remained as a thin crest. Nice coffee, roasted/burnt malt aroma. Flavor was slightly sweet, a hint of cocoa, with a predominant roast nut and coffee bitterness that lingers. A very flavorful porter with a smooth mouthfeel.

Draft at brewpub. Pours a brown color with a moderate off-white head that was lasting and produced great lacing. Good roasted malt and caramel aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Good sweet roasted malt flavor with solid finish. Good brew.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Nearly opaque dark brown pour...big thick tan head. Lotsa roasty malt, coffeish, some chocolate in the aroma. Flavor was equally roasty, medium bodied....creamy mouthfeel. Light bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite ale there, but a good one.

You can tell this is the flagship beer it stood out from the rest having the most flavor, coffee, chocolate, and man this was good.
