This porter is a very dark chocolate brown with a fizzy khaki head. The aroma is of sweet dark malt and fresh medicinal hops-- perhaps wintergreen. It is full-bodied, smooth, and slightly chalky. The flavor has a hollow bitterness. In addition to the roasted malt flavor, there is citrus, mint and... caraway? Very unique. Ive always been a fan of this one.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 16, 2007
350 mL bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Sweet lightly chocolate scented aroma. Sweet smooth taste. Nothing particularly special about this one - a run of the mill porter.

I had this one out of the bottle; thick body, malty sweet aroma and taste. For the style, It surprisely finishes pretty light. Not a lot to say about it, nothing stands out for me. Average.
