4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep, dark mahogany color. Nice tan head, too. Aroma was malted barley, some coffee notes. Flavor was robust, with rich chocolate and roasty coffee notes coming through. Palate was excellent, a thickness that didn’t get in the way but carried the flavors nicely. I plan on getting some more of this.
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Pours black coffie with 2 fingers of tan head. Excellent lacing. Smells sweet malted barley and caramel. Taste is malty with mild bitter hops finish. ABV is a bit low for a porter but its a good beer. Sergant (2) - - NOV 19, 2017 does not count
Very good Porter. Nice choice.
My recommendation to try with dry meat. Our company prefer such a dark beer.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2017 weak aroma of roasted malt, coffee, some caramel. Taste of coffee, cocoa beans and dominating roast malt. Bitter dark roast coffee finish. Bill Becker (1806) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 25, 2017
From Jun 2007
Purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper.
This pours from 12oz bottle a very dark brown with a small tannish head of foam. It shrinks to an island in the middle and it has good lacing.
The smell has a lot of chocolate and sweet malt with just a whiff of some hoppy goodness.
The taste is very big and very nice. I get a lot of chocolate and roasted malt and some good coffee notes as well. Smooth yet full flavoured. Swishing the beer in my mouth, I get a more pronounced hop bitterness that really balances and goes well with the sweet start that I got. Man...this is a *great* Porter. The mouthfeel is elegant and the carbonation is just right and the finish has a nice bitter zing to it. I haven't bought a sixer of this in years and that makes me shake my head in disbelief.
Bottom line: This is a world class American Porter that just about anyone can find in the US. Highly recommended!!

Aromat mocno kawowy i czekoladowy. W smaku głównie mleczna czekolada i suszone owoce, fajnie się zestarzał.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Smagt på Rudis Beer bar i Chania.
Sort og lidt tyk i det.
Karamel og malt i næsen.
Sødme, bitterhed og fylde i munden.
En af de bedste porter til dato. efeesse (602) - Praha, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 14, 2017
Dark beer where is noticed the ending of a dark chocolate and creamy body (drunk a 20cl tap beer in NaPalmě, Praha, CZ #584)(#2 US, #2 California). PilsnerMeister42 (26) - - OCT 13, 2017

W aromacie nudy, kawa ale nie za bardzo intensywna. W smaku podobni kawa, paloność, ciut kwaskowe, konkretnie wytrawne, dość wodniste. Zasadniczo nic specjalnego.
