madsberg (11761) - SÝborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Bottled: Red/brown coloured. Light brown head. Dense. Chocolate, sweetness, roast and malt in the aroma. A little vague. Flavour is roasted, sweet and has some malt and chocolate. Is a bit thin bodied. Is sweet and roasty in the end. Thanks Springslicker for trading this.

Ungstrup (36934) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
An opaque brown beer with a small light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of yeast, chocolate, and hints of coffee.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2005
#600. WOnderful warm, raosty, caramel, chocolate malty smell. I let this sit out for about 45 minutes before opening it, and it got the the perfect temperature. The mouthfeel ir smooth and really lets out a nice roasted chocoaltey taste. This is one damn fine easy going porter.

Cobra (1100) - - FEB 10, 2005
12 oz. brown longneck bottle. Again, no freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a dark chocolate brown, with a loose, fast fading tan colored head. Aromas are mostly of yeast, roasted malts, and fruity esters. I think this batch was fermented too warm myself. Thin body, burnt coffee aftertaste, & not well balanced, IMHO.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this!! Pours a dark redish color.. almost black with a medium head. Smells of sweet coffee and malts. This tasted heavily of coffee with hints of chocolate and a nice bitter finish. Taste more like a stout to me but very tasty.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Again, Iím comparing this to to Bully Porter because I had it the same night. Dark brown color with off-white head. Roasted smell and a slight coffee taste which turned me off.

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2005
This beer pours a very dark rust color and is opaque in the glass. Has a medium, relatively loose head and a brown sugar/coffe aroma with nice roasted overtones. Very light bitterness; perfectly blended. No overpowering flavors yet gives a balenced but complex profile. There is a distict astringent flavor that I canít place, striking at first and any stronger and it would be a flaw, but in this context it is very interesting couterpoint to the maltyness. This beer realy goes for the coffee and roasted tones rather than the chocolately and smokey ones in many american porters. This is an introspective shoe gazing porter relative to the punk rock offerings from the likes of Rogue and Stone.

beerhandy (195) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 17, 2005
A dark beer with amber highlights and a nice tight beige head. Dark roasted coffee aromas with a hint of cardboard. Taste is a little dryer than I expected almost like a dry stout, flavor of roasted malts with the bitterness from black malt and hops evident in the swallow. Mouthfeel was thin almost cidery.

pivo (2685) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2005
Toast and balsamic in the nose, dark opaque brown color, light tan head. Roastedness and smoke in the body with a hint of licorice. A little farty and buttery. Bells is just a great brewery but this one surprised me - not so good. Did I get a bad sample?

thanks to csbosox for the hook-up on this i was very excited to try this brew.seeing as any kalamazoo i have had is nothing save for exceptional.after popping the top i was treated with an aroma of roasted coffee and malts.when i held the glass up to the light,i found a mixture of black and red.the taste is what really stood out for me.it was like the perfect blend of thickness,chocolate,coffee,and bitterness.this porter is top notch for sure.
