A solid porter, but I have had many just as good. Still, worth a try if you like the style. egajdzis (6776) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Cask... Poured a dark brown / red color with a medium sized tan head that left nice lacing. Weak roasty, chocolate cream aroma. Nice chocolate taste, some more roast and light smoke, cherries as well. Very thin mouthfeel. Not a bad porter. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2004
On tap at the Lehigh Valley Brew Fest ’04. Poured a dark reddish, brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of chocolate and roasted malts. Smooth body. Very light bitterness. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
On tap at ABC. THis was very smoooth and enjoyable at the brewery, however, when I had it at another bar on tap it was somewhat different and had a metallic taste and wasnt nearly as smooth.(maybe bad tap lines) Overall it had a slight roasty aroma and flavor, but the caramel malts came through a little more. Although this beer is well attenuated and has a dry finish, it somehow retains a very nice body and mouthfeel. Very well done. Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2003
A little chocolate on the nose, but rather thin porter without much character. Not impressed.

(Draught) Foamy, beige head with an opaque body. Hardly any nose? Coffee malt. Boring... MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2003
Dark color. Black olive notes in flavor and aroma. I like black olives, so i thought this was ok, but could be better. obxdude10 (2378) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Pretty average porter, black in color with a nice tanish head, some roasted flavors, very little by way of aroma, balance was decent, body was medium austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 5, 2003
A mild, English-style porter that has little in the way of aroma or roastiness. While I miss the aroma, there are times when I enjoy a mild porter with some malt and little bitterness. Pleasant. Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2003
Looks very promising with a thick dark body and a full rich white head. Not much in the way of aroma. The taste is roasted almonds w/ a bite. This beer promises a lot but just never delivers.
