UPDATED: MAY 10, 2016 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain), with notes of salt/soy sauce, black licorice, sherry, tar. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, salty. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, salty. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Mildly interesting nose but not especially enticing...salty and a bit oxidized (even though bottles with this new label design just arrived, so it would seem to be reasonably fresh). Salty in the mouth as well, as portended by the aroma, but not in an unpleasant way...it’s actually pretty drinkable/balanced for its size.

I am no expert but this is sooo close to stout. Round and flavourful and as black as could be. Plus it had that kick, man oh! I used to drink alot of porter, but this is not like any other I have had. Great beer.

A wonderful porter. Full ot flavor, very smooth. Strong roasted and fruity flavor with notes of chocolate and coffee. Very sharp mouthfeel, but covers the high abv marvelously.

Wow! Great call Oakes. This one was fantastic. Great dark body with a thick head with good retention. Wonderful burnt raisin/plum aroma and taste. Toasty but well balanced. Fairly dry finish. Alcohol was barely present. A great way to bring in my 22nd year on earth.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2007 500ml bottle. Roasty, faintly chocolatey malt aroma, some light coffee, ash and vegetal hop. Brown-black color with a lasting, fine, tan head. Flavor is full of dark malt sweetness and fruit, with notes of cocoa, licorice, prune, roasty coffee, burnt sugars and faint cream. Light-moderate bitterness towards the finish, a slight alcholic presence is felt here, as well. Mouthfeel is smoothly effervescent and coating, body is full. This is the first of this beer I’ve had in several years, and while it is tasty enough, it’s not the stunning creation that I recall.
