A very drinkable and enjoyable Porter for me as it does not have a strong coffee flavor to it. It had a small sized tan head that was creamy and smooth in appearance with fine sized bubbles that mostly dissipated in time. The body was carbonated, opaque and black. The nose was mild coffee and mild chocolate. The flavor was somewhat malty with a mild coffee flavor to it. The palate was very, very smooth with a dry texture and medium bodied. This beer had a fair amount of lacing.

Eric Thanks for sending me this brew, what better way to begin my nightly relaxation therapy, right?
For shit sake this beer pours a substantial head, color: caramel……body is a deep crimson / black. The aroma is coffee like, chocolaty sweet aroma, lots of grain, smells like chocolate Rice Crispy treats. The flavor is rich and full with roasted malt; reminiscent of burnt chocolate pudding, that thick gooey stuff at the bottom of the pan with the scorched smoky flavor, you know?
This porter has one of the most creamy palate of any I have sampled, it’s a marvelous thing! Thanks again E!

The first porter I ever had and still one of my very favorite. The typical chocolate and coffee flavor from the roasted malt, but the perfect amount of hops give it a better finish than most porters.

Very dark brown, big head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, a bit of chocolate, and just a touch of alcohol. The flavor is good, although not complex. Decent chocolate flavors, maybe a hint of coffee, some undefined hops, and again a pinch of alcohol. Medium bodied. Thanks Indra!

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 When I lived near KC, I always drank this on tap. A nice full body that is also smooth. Great coffee and chocolate undertones. The standard by which I judge all other porters. I still like it in the bottle now that I dont live as near to KC. I keep returning to this beer over and over. What a great brew.

Out of bottle big foamy eggshell head. Roasty, chocolate undertones, very nice. Right amount of bitter not overpowering. Very good Beer. If you have the opportunity, this is a very good brew.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2003
Pours black with brown edges, nice head and good lace. Some fruit, coffee and chocolate in the nose. None really standing out more than the other. Sweet flavors of smoke and coffee. Odd, yet pleasing. Good porter. Since Buck hooked me up, I should thank Indra and Tanner as well.

Pours black like you'd expect. Lots of head retentiona and lacing. Aroma is full of sweet coffee and mild chocolate, hops detectable. Flavor is smoky but lightly sweet. Finishes dry and bitter with a nice coffee finish. This was a pretty good porter! Thanks Indra & TTB

thedm (5942) - Fredonia, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2003
This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized dark brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated near opaque black colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mild with notes of roasted caramel and dark chocolate. THe mouthfeel was smooth from the start with a slight tingle and a chocolate brwon beer finish. The flavor was mild with a slight aftertaste of dark malt and mild coffee.
