Disappointed. Pours with bubbles similar to a bottle of coke with a head that disappears faster than a coke. Even tastes like a sour version of coke. Very thin in body. Not smooth on the palate like most porters Ive tried.

Taste 10/9 bottle. Looks:Quickly fading tan head on a dark cherry body. Aroma: Mild vanilla and coffee with a soy sauce astringency. Taste: Same as aroma. Soy sauce hits in the middle with a coffee and very mild vanilla finish. Mouthfeel is watery and sugary.

Beerdedone (3332) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma of light vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Flavor was sweet vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts with a slightly dry finish.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Brewed in the USA... Pours chestnut brown in color with a small lasting off white head. Aroma of malts and dry apricots. Taste is much of the same !!! Not sure what is going on here? Where is the chocolate and vanilla? This so called porter is thin in body with stinging sour finish. :(

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle, from Supreme Liquors, Cambridge MA, 16 October 2009. Dark brown colour. Diminishing beige head. Quite fruity aroma, suggestion of violets, with a slight roast malt undertone but not much coffee in evidence. Sweet and disappointingly thin on the palate. Some creamy coffee notes but not much depth of flavour. The finish and aftertaste is little more than a lingering sugary sweetness. Rather sickly. Drinkable but not impressive.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2009
I rather enjoyed this one, even if no one else seems to. Coffee, chocolate, and vanilla (a bit artificial I admit, but not bad). Smooth mouth feel that is thin for the style.

blankboy (7461) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a very bubbly, dark amber-brown with an average size fizzy tan head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, some metallic tartness and hints of coffee and chocolate. Not really getting any vanilla. Watery flavour is slightly sour and not in a good way, along with roasted malt, light coffee and a slightly harsh, light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not awful but not good either, maybe they have bottling issues?

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Pours a deep dark chestnut brown, almost black with slight amber edges when held to a light source and a thick foamy tan head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Minimal lacing. Roasted chocolate malty aroma with hints of roasted coffee beans, vanilla bean, dark chocolate and subtle hops. Roasted coffee flavor with chocolate maltiness, oatmeal, vanilla bean and hazelnut. Creamy medium body that is pretty silky considering how roasty the flavor is with a slightly dry bitter finish.

goldfish19 (50) - Long Island, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2009 ~ Purchased this 12 oz bottle from New Beer Distributors in Manhattan, NY. Pours dark brown with a small head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are light and I can make out hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is sourish. Mouthfeel is watery. I had high hopes for this beer in the beginning, but it turned out to be a disaster in the end. Drink at your own risk! ~

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Pours a deep brown almost black with a smaller creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of tart cherries, light hints of roast and chocolate and barely noticeable coffee...no vanilla. Either this bottle is really really old (I just bought it at Blue Dog Pub and brewery prints no freshness dates on its bottles) or some wild yeast got ahold of this one. Flavor of this off tart sourness, cherry, light roasted malt some chocolate and maybe a touch of the coffee. What the heck! Totally watery and thin. DRAIN POUR
