RichardGretton (4697) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2005
[email protected] 2005. Dark beer with a coffee aroma and a light malty and watery coffee flavour. Overall a reasonable porter but not as good as I was expecting.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a rich dark, nearly opaque brown with a frothy tan head with nice thin lacing. Aroma is nicely malty, roasty, and sweet with good dark chocolatey bitter coffee. Starts with sweet caramel and chocolate malts nicely balanced with a semi-dry bitter coffee flavor. Kinda like Founders Breakfast Stouts little brother.

Pours deep dark brown with a big tan head. Subtle aroma of coffee and milk?. Taste is coffee, roasted notes, slight hops. Very full, creamy mouthfeel. Coffee is present for sure, but not over the top. Well balanced. Awesome and underrated.

Bottle, bomber: Deep dark brown, almost opaque although some light does find its way through, poured a smaller tan head. Aromas of light coffee, smoke, and roasted malts. Flavor shows even more coffee than the nose, roasted malts in the background, somel ight hop notes which fade quickly.
