Not much to this porter. Dark brown color with a medium beige head. Roasted coffee and malt aroma. Mild flavors of roasted coffee, malt and light hops. Very thin feel.

Deep brown color with a medium tan head. The aroma and flavor contained some nice coffee, cocoa, and roasted tones...mildly sweet. The feel was too thin and fizzy.

Definite coffee nose. I thought it poured a little thin for a porter and the head was thin and quickly disappeared. The farther into the glass the more bitter it got. If there wasn't so many good micros available this might be OK but there are plenty better beers.

Poured a small tan head that didn't last long with fine-medium bubbles. The lacing was decent and the aroma was that of chocolate. It had a decent smooth coffee taste to it.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of fine to large sized light brown bubbles and a opaque black body. It has a mild malt aroma, fair lacing and a medium strength coffee flavor with a slightly fizzy start and a bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap- Dark opaque color with nice head and lace, medium-bodied. Coffee, chocolate, and floral aroma. Roasted malt flavor dominates the palate, dry finish. Similiar to the porters from northern England.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chocolate mocha prune aroma, light fringe of foam, no head to speak of. Slightly tart, bitter coffee flavor. Astringent, assertive mouthfeel. Not a particulary robust or memorable representative of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice dark colour, good head retention. Not sweet enough for my liking. I tasted too much burnt chocolate...
I will certainly stick to Sierra Nevada and Anchor the next time I want an affordable porter.
