Deep brown with hints of red. Vigorous tan head. Malty aroma, but not much of it. Toffee flavor with some hops. I agree that it is porter-like Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003

I Didn’t care for the aroma but it seems most are liking it. Medium body. Malty nutty earthy bitter flavour, it’s fairly complex. bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2004
bottled: mostly some malt character here, choc malt, coffee flavors, some light hopping in the finish. easy to drink and uneventful. davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Nice dark color, creamy head. Sweet aroma. Flavor was a little sweet and chocolatey, also creamy. Smooth finish as well. I thought it was ok.

A dark red / brown colour with creamy off-white head. Malty, black berry aroma. Flavour is quite roasty with hints of black berries and mild hops. Has a medium body with a mild bitter finish. DenverLogan (1219) - LA, California, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Pale brown; lingering amber head. Earth, straw, wheat, carob in aroma. Rich body of carob, molassas, hops, wood, some smokiness, pepper, cheap coffee, with a bitter dry finish. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Poured Amber with amazing head. This one was a little too carbinated, which I don’t normally like. It had a good flavor to it though. BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2007
Dark amber brown with minimal head. Smells a tad malty and roasted. Tastes a bit fruity and malty, strange combo, but seems to work. Again you get that roasted malts taste. It does have a dry and slightly bitter finish.
