Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2011
22 oz. brown bottle courtesy of miketd. A very dark brown almost black beer with red hues on the edge of the glass. A good head that clings to the glass as it fades. The aroma is nice chocolate, roast, and some smokey burntness. The taste is clean with lots of chocolate with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and anymore would be perfect. The end is not so pleasant but a pretty good porter. The aroma is its best attribute.

GT2 (7898) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JAN 10, 2011
651mL courtesy of mdfb79. Poured a clear brown with a healthy, brown head leaving good, spotty lace. Aroma of brownie mix, vanilla, light olive, mostly muted. Taste is sweet cola, light mildly bitter and burnt. Powdery, watery body. Even lightly tart.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2011
Bouteille partagée avec Ibrew2or3. Brune, fine mousse beige qui disparaît assez vite. Arôme et palais de malt grillé, fruité allant sur la pomme, un peu de chocolat laissant de fines traces d’amertume. Malt grillé et fumé. Fini est sec, poudreux restant sur un fini qui conserve des notes moyennes de malt fumé. Le tout est plus centre sur le malt et un profile un peu plus grillé.

MrBunn (2384) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Bomber. Just a little bit of light slips in around the edges of this dark brown pour. Head is fairly thin... tan foam. Chocolate milk dominates the nose, with a bit of an earth and leather backdrop. Flavor is straight chocolate milk... with just a hint of darker and more bitter notes that peek through now and again. Flavor is decidedly sweet, but it doesn’t head off into cloying territory. ABV is excellently hidden.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Watery, slightly clear brown pour. Tootsie roll and chocolate fudge aroma. Slightly sweet when it first hits the tongue. Roasty and chocolaty with a very bitter finish.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Thanks to the Tampa crew for sharing this one. Pours dark cola brown with a white head. Nose is dry coffee, slight cocoa, chocolate, and some nuts. Flavor is similar with chocolate, nuts, coffee, and cocoa. Medium to full-bodied and nice.

nimbleprop (4200) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2011
22oz bottle pours a mostly transparent, deep mahogany with a creamy beige head. Nice chocolate nose, malty, brown sugar, light smoke. Flavor has lots of smoke, malty, chocolate, a little light sourness. Finish is soft and lightly smokey. Not bad.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 A tasty beer. Picked up in Cleveland while I was home (where I stocked up on cleveland beers- followers eagerly wait for me to gradually drink all these beers!) Poured dark, and heavy out of the bottle. Clever label- I think it is the Kraft Mac and Cheese Dinosaur on a black jack playing card. Perhaps the cheetos I recently ate aided my thought process for this. Smokey not sweet at all, not chocolatey. I’d drink this again.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of carmel/roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is carmel, chocolate, licorice, and citrus. Alittle sour on the back end. Overall very good. Go Bucks!

Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours black with white head. Nose of roasted malts, grain and chocolate covered nuts. Taste of vanilla, roasted chocolate malts and nuts. Mild dry finish.
