DSG (13956) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2011 Re-rate 5/4/11: Bottle. Beer of the month club. Black-colored with a small bubbly beige head. Aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate and coffee notes. Sweetish flavor roasty graininess, vegetal hints, vanilla, coffee, a bit of lactic sourness and a drier finish. Light-medium-bodied. Not great, but drinkable unlike last time. 6/3/5/3/11=2.8

Bottle. Beautiful black-colored beer with a magnificent big, stable, beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla, some infected yeast acidity notes. Flavor starts sweet and a bit chocolatey with hints of vanilla and very unpleasant sourness, mostly towards the finish. Light-bodied. If it wasnt for the nasty infection this would probably be a decent beer. I wouldnt have rated it if I didnt see in other ratings the infection seems to be a consistent thing. 5/5/3/2/7=2.2

Single bottle from Pats Liquors in Porter, Indiana: It poured a very dark brown body with a short-lived creamy tan head. Almost no lace. It had an aroma of burnt coffee grounds and a dribble of vanilla. Pretty thin. It had a light taste of coffee, a suggestion of chocolate, and a lactic-like sourness near the finish. Thank goodness for single bottle buys.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep, dark brown with a 2" foamy head. Nose has a funky sourness about it with coffee. Flavor is very metallic at first, then degrades into an artificial sour funk. Also heavy coffee presence. Coffee with tin foil in it, yum. I loves my porters, but this one is barely above a drain pour

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2009
bottle: Pours very dark brown with a nice foamy tan head. Artificial sweetener with a faint coffee and cocoa aroma,. Combined they produce an unpleasant musty, sour smell. Taste is even worse. Initial vanilla extract taste turns to a sour, watered down vinegar finish and leaves a very sour lingering aftertaste. Flat and chalky mouthfeel. Only way I will ever try this again is out of the tap at the brewery.

Not really a good porter. Little in the way of roasted aroma, or coffee, or even chocolate. Flavor is similarly flat, with nothing to note. Oh yeah...no vanilla really present.

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2009
bottle bought for $1.67 from lexington. pours a very thin pure black with ugly yeast specks everywhere, like a shake. super not viscous at all. at first i liked the aroma a lot, it was super coffee/vanilla. about halfway through now, its still reasonably good but pretty fake. its mostly vanilla, with the obvious side of chocolate. pretty fake, again. i just washed my keyboard. shit types so much faster and cleaner now. this is how shit was meant to be. beer tastes fucking awful. like infected awful, but not that bad. lousy awful. um, lets look for adjectives suggested by ratebeer: light sweetness, medium bitterness, heavily sour, salty, vinegar, vinegar, vinegar, no paper napkin actually. great. cello cello cello cello cello cello cello cello

BREWMUSKCLES (2651) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2009
pours just like a soda the brew is light in body with a foamy and light head that disappears in short order. on the palate again like a soda i can say that i did enjoy the flavor of vanilla and coffee as they both seem genuine and balanced. touch of something of an earthy or root nature just barely perhaps vegetable. it is different and demonstrative. no alcohol to taste but good beer buzz i just dont know exactly why but i like it!

Ron (3885) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Poured very dark brown with very minimal head. Aroma was coffee, vanilla, and hot chocolate. Tasted as expected too, coffee with a touch of vanilla and the hops were not very noticeable. The body was a bit light which was nice.

thornecb (5852) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Pours deep brown into a snifter. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Sour coffee aromas. Crisp sour vanilla and coffee from front to back. Nasty. Drain pour.

Bottle. Aroma is stale, a bit vegetative. Appears dark brown with a bubbly off-white head. Horrible flavor of red peppers in a porter. No sweet or roasty character at all. Light palate. Disgusting. I hope this was a bad bottle.
