Dark brown with slight head. Big roast chocolate with a sharp coffee bitterness along the sides of the tongue. Then along came the cream for my coffee - milky smooth, delicious. Ended with a nice warmth

Has a dark brown color with a good bit of carbonation and a roast malt/caramel smell. Taste is of roast malt/caramel/dark chocolate and finishes with a medium bitterness. Overall a pretty good porter, not my favorite, but not bad.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Dark brown with a light tan head that lasted. Rich and sweet with a slightly soapy mouth feel. A clean finish beckons another swallow. YUM!

Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Great looking beer. Smell was in your face with caramel, chocolate, soy sauce, coffee and fruits. Taste was too in your face for me. There was a soy sauce taste which perhaps I am misinterpreting for something else. That is what I got though. The mouthfeel was too alcoholic. I like to have toffee and caramel and did not really get that here. The alcohol was too strong. Perhaps it is just too damn hot out. I ramble because I was so looking forward to this and didn’t like it.

[2nd Low Countries RateBeer meeting] Aroma is a bit weak, has roasted coffee malts. Clear, brown-black coloured with a light brown head. Taste is sweet, caramel and coffee malty. Nice body.

Aroma of dark malt and a little dark fruit. Dark brown color transmits some ruby notes, and the tan head is vigorous and lasting. Starts with a dark fruit quickly followed by carbonation and then very strong toasted malt. The malt tends to compete with the hop. Interesting stuff.
