Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Very dark brown. Mild smoke aroma is followed by flavors of burnt coffee, carame and some spice. Finishes with a bit of sweet chocolate. Full bodied and smooth.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours smoky dark ruby with bubbles and a thin off-white head. The aroma has smooth malts in it, but also some cream/butter notes, and is altogether kind of weak. The flavors are built on a foundation of malt that is not strong enough to hold them up. Quite a bit of disharmony between the flavors. Goes from sweet and carbonic, to some hops in the middle, to a slightly sour finish. I dont recommend this to anyone who appreciates a good porter.

NachlamSie (3440) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2009 draught. This is a black porter with a quickly fading head. The aroma is weirdly musky and bready. Theres a buttery oil taste and some strange grassy astringency, this is quite distracting from the coffee or chocolate notes.

This is a rating for Eds Porter which has been listed as an alias. Eds Porter is dark, dark brown, not really black at all. The aroma is bittersweet and thick with hints of soy sauce, chocolate, and wood. The palate is thicker than I expected with residual citrusy bitterness. The beer is constantly chewy and bittersweet with just a dash of sweet chocolate here and there. This is highly drinkable. I had a much different (better) experience with this porter. (Total Score 3.6)

Very similar to Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout. Soy taste, not much aroma, looks like Guinness.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 9, 2005

ericnixon (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2005
On tap in Nashville. Dark brown color. Interesting flavor that was predominately full of honey, malty goodness.

Aurelius (5251) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Inky, but you can still see the lamp through it. A bit boozy. Medium light body. Thoroughly brewpub-neutered, this doesnt challenge the palate at all, nor is it particularly smooth. Finishes quickly without much char or cling. A bit too sugary in the end.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Draft at Nashville location: Dark brown in color with a tan head. Malty aroma with caramel standing out. The taste had chocolate and caramel malts in it. Medium body with a creamy texture. Not bad.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Dark ruby body, no head. Lots of roasted coffee and chocolate, with a rich palate and a dry, bitter finish.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2005
From brewpub sampler. Dark brown, light for style. Little aroma. Light bread flavor, and a bit of chocolate. Pedestrian porter. Bit of grassy, almost vegetal hop at the end was a bit out of place, but actually helped this beer overall.
