Pour is a jet black with no head. Aroma is of bitter chocolate with some burnt malt. Flavor is very toasty, roasty and dark chocolate. Very nice and smooth. Another good one by a good brewer. lukin013 (215) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee with a bit of chocolate. Flavor is slightly better balanced than the aroma but still a bit heavy on the coffee which I think gives it a bit of a bitter finish. A little too easy to drink for me... not quite as rich in flavor as I would like but still a pretty good beer. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle. Batch 7393. Pours a very dark brown body with red tinges on the edge and a small tan head. The aroma is roasty and full of smooth bitter chocolate with caramel and cookies. Medium carbonation. Sticky chocolate roastiness among some earthy bitterness and dark fruit. Finishes with roasty wafers. A solid porter though not phenomenal in any area. thebaldwizard (1207) - Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2006
A solid porter for sure. The pour is a very dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is of coffee. The flavor is very much roasted coffee and nutty as well. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Bottle: Brown with a light tan head. Aroma of some dark fruits, roasty malts, chocolate. Flavor, roasty with a slight bitterness, a hint of chocolate. kinda dry on the finish. This is a solid one, too bad I got a frosted glass with it.

Rich and a suitably well balanced and easy to drink porter, with a bit more flavor than I Was expecting. Roasty and medium bodied with some nice drak fruit flavors melding nicely with some milk chocolate and almonds. Adverse2Bitter (35) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2006
A fresh porter with minimal head and balanced carbonization. A good nutty character with little to no bitterness. After taste focus on roosted nut flavor, with just a hint of raisin. JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a nice dark brown with a small tan head. This is a medium bodied beer that gives a pleasent cocoa and roasted coffee aroma. Taste is smoky, creamy flavor with a hint of caramel and marshmellow. Has a slight bitter hopp finish. This one is top of my list as one of my favorite Porters. Very Good!

Pretty good. It is a well brewed porter, but it fails to truly wow me. Just not as good as Bells stouts and IPAs. vyvvy (6392) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 28, 2006
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a dark tan head. Aroma is roasted / burnt malt with hints of dark coffee. Taste has lots of toasty malt with generous smooth creaminess and vanilla hints. Finish has a bit of carbonation and tangy hops mixing in with the roasted malt. Very nice porter.
