A robust porter, dark brown in color and full-bodied with a malty sweet taste. Deep roasted, yet silky-smooth! Two types of roasted malts, including deep-roasted chocolate malt are used to give this porter a rich, chocolately taste.

Long Island, NY - 12 oz. beer pours a dark cola color with a thin layer of brownish head. Aroma was malt heavyz I don't dwell much in porters but taste was of slight hops with a hint of sweetness. Heavy malt backbone with a smooth mouth feel. Not a bad brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A black pour that is dark brown around the edges with an off-white head. The aroma has dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a hint of vanilla. It has a medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a semi-dry, roasted finish.

1st bottle from my stateside run - pours a deep opaque black with a 1 finger tan cap. Thick oily body - aroma is a wonderful amalgam of malts - coffee, cocoa, roast, nutty - with a small flare of fruit. Rich mouthfeel, deeply flavorful with chewy bundt cake malts in front, light hazel nut tones, long wet finish with just a hint of fruit. F’n glorious brew but what is it? It’s not a porter - maybe a thick stout with brown ale yeast - dunno, who cares It drinks well.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep black with a one finger, tan head that sticks to the glass nicely. Aroma is pleasing with nice notes of dark chocolate, peanut shells, roasted malts, slight coffee, dark caramel, toffee, and a hint of floral hops. Taste is a balanced bitter. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, peanut shells, caramel, slight dark fruits, and as odd as it seems, banana at the end. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Creamy but not syrupy in the mouth with a soft, round carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a great porter. Dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, bread, and dark fruits.

Aroma is mostly malts. Taste is primarily roasted nuts and malts. Overall not the best porter, but not bad.

islay (1541) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Approximately ½ of a 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-23-15. Fishy, yeasty aroma with scents of uncooked bread dough and roast. Pours dark brown with an amber hue and a moderate amount of beige head. Produces decent lacing. Simple, burnt malt flavor. Medium body. Ordinary palate effects. Overall, this is an adequately pleasant, old-fashioned craft beer. I can see this being the award winner that it was in the early ‘00s, but it fails to impress today.

Pours an almost opaque black with brown-red highlights. Light brown head is fairly dense and persists well. Aroma is dominated by dark and roasty malts, coffee, chocolate, a tiny amount of charcoal, and a barely perceptible alcoholic note. Flavor is roasty in character with a moderate bitterness; the initial impression of espresso gives way nicely to a long chocolate-toffee finish. I’d be hard pressed to find much evidence of hops in either the aroma or the flavor. Overall, smooth and fairly rich, with low astringency.
