Chocolate, coffee aroma. Mahogany, small toffee head, pretty little lace. Bitter coffee flavour, very pleasing mouthfeel, excellent bitterness. This one earns it's way into the starting lineup! Thanks Radek and Princess for a fun evening of good food, drinks and Your warm company.

Reddish brown, not opaque, small tan head, chocolate in the nose. Sweetish coffee with a hint of chocolate. Pleasant.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Bloodied chestnut with spent yeast particles. Sticky tan froth. Steady, scattered carbonation. Aroma of roasted peanuts, caramel, dry chocolate and plums. Fizzy, caramelled and airy with a roasted aftertaste. Solid chocolate, dark caramel and mild dry roasted coffee beneath the wall of carbonation. Mostly dry. Medium light body. Barely a hint of fruity yeast. More like a subtle counter to the dark malt flavors. Finishes dryly malty with a lingering peanut and coffee essence. Lose the carb and this would be a great session Porter. Could be old though.

A spicy porter that comes off the bench nicely to replace other porters when I want a change. Sweet and sour meld together in this tasty porter thats true to style.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2002
A very deep garnet on the pour, the head is generous and light tan, the lace is in sheets. Nose is malt, caramel, a bit smokey maybe, earthy. Front is malt and lightly sweet, the top is light, much to my surprise and pleasure, there is a nice hop bitter finish. Dry, acidic and quite quaffable, and well worth the try. Ranks #412 on my current 1000 master beer list.

Steak (124) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2002
A good example of malts and hops being pretty well balanced. That said, it wasnt the most complex besides that. The body seemed a little thin and the aroma left a little to be desired. Also, it seemd overly smooth. I can understanf how brewers want the beers to be smooth, and while this is OK for other drinks, I dont mind a little grittiness in a porter.
