12oz bottle. 46.5°. NB worthy glass. Pours dark black with a 1/2" khaki head that shrinks down to just a haze, then just a few bubbles on the surface in the matter of a minute. Roasted malt aroma with some sourness and a hint of citrus rinds. Flavor is cooled bittersweet hot chocolate. Roasted malts. Buttermilk. Nice "full" mouthfeel. Roasty, chocolately finish with some traces of citrus peels.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Full, roasty malt aroma, plenty of cocoa as well as some lightly earthy, spicy hop. Ebony in color, a few red-brown highlights with a fine, creamy, lasting head and delicate lacing. Flavor profile is pretty well balanced with notes of roasty, darkly sweet malt, milk chocolate and faint coffee tones alongside a moderate amount of fresh, lightly citric, juicy and bitter hops. Finish is dry and toasty. Palate is adequately carbonated and very lightly oily, body is medium. Not bad at all.

Deep, dark brown, opaque, with a small tan head. The aroma wassharply bitter up front with some dark chocolate and coffee tones. The flavor was quite dry...burnt hop tones and a strong bitter coffee character. The feel was quite crisp and dry.

Coffee malt aroma, smooth coffee malt taste kind of weakens and gets a little bitter on aftertaste, but still one of the best midwestern porters I’ve tasted

badgerben (4681) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Black color with a foamy head. It has a good coffee and chocolate aroma. Very bitter malt taste, but it lacks the coffee/chocolate taste that is expected.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - OCT 17, 2004
very dark brown color with some reddish tints...creamy tan head. chocolate and coffee aroma. chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and earthy flavors dominate this wonderful Porter...nice balance of hops in the finish that make this brew stand out a bit from the rest.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottled: Deep brown and nearly opaque with an initial frothy tah head before fading leaving a very good lace. The aroma has notes of bittersweet chocolate, light smoke and caramel malts, some fruity and piney hops, and a earthy yeast ester. The taste starts surprisingly hoppy witha noticeable pney background and a bitter coffee twang throughout. A nice dose of malts midsection. The finish is smokey and bitter. The feel is lively and thin, crisp. Overall it has a leaning towards bitters more the malts but is balanced enough to enjoy completely.
