On tap at Capital Ale House, Innesbrooke. Tasted great straight off the tap. As it warmed, it got sweeter, very creamy. I could barely finish the pint as it got so sweet towards the end. Heavy butterscotch flavor towards the end.... perhaps enjoyable 8 ozs at a time.....

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a dark reddish black with a small amber head. Aromas of vanilla, spices, honey and a hint of chocolate. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of coffee, vanilla, spice and a hint of chocolate with a smooth lingering bittersweet finish.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Reasonably strong taste of coffee and kent goldings hops. But aside from that ... heavy on the water content. Really disappointing.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Tasted 9/30 Tommyknocker brewery, CO. Dark brown hue. Chocolate and roasted coffee in the nose. Dark and full bodied. Definite rye flavor along with toffee. Smooth rich, slight hop flavor.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Draft, Great Decatur Beerfest. Dark brown color. Interesting roasty malt and chocolate aroma, different from stanard roasty porter aromas. More roasty and chocolate flavors, with some light fruitiness - raisins. Smooth and very easy to drink, but maybe a little thin.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - APR 24, 2005
Dark brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee, touch of sweetness. A medium to light bodied porter. Malts are slightly roasty, touch of chocolate and coffee. The rye adds some body and spiciness to the roasted malts. Nice balanced. Smooth taste. Clean, easy to drink porter. A little thin tasting, but acceptable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Draught @ Tommy Knocker in Idaho Springs, CO. Deep burgundy color. Pleasing aroma showing an emphasis on the use of rye, along with hints of caramel and chocolate malts. Initially a pleasing flavor of cocoa, raisin and coffee beans is present, until it tames significantly into almost nothing on the finish. If they could have rounded out the flavor a bit more, this would have been great.
