Ratman197 (14352) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2007
On tap @ Falling Rock poured a nearly opaque brownish black with a small lasting brown head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla and light coffee. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee with a smooth lingering bitter finish.

Clear dark-mahogany with minimal beige head. Aroma is quite roasty, malty, some chocolate. Taste is bland and watery, finishing with a hint of roastiness.

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Aroma of coffee and roasted wood. Taste is smooth but grainy, with a frothy head and a nice even finish. Taste similar to Fullers. Lets you believe youre drinking coffee.

Ernest (7589) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, milk chocolate, caramel), moderately hoppy (resin), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of vanilla and smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Decent aroma but just a tad too hoppy for my liking, slightly husky/vegetal aftertaste hurts the flavor score a bit. Overall, decent but not great.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark, reddish brown color with a minimal tan head. Chocolatey, roasted malt smell. Medium bodied with a nice smooth mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. Has a rich, hearty roasted grain flavor with a mild chocolate sweetness. Yet another tasty Porter from Full Sail.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle (and a new label as well) best before 04/03/04. Pours very dark dark brown, almost black with little to no head. Minimal lacing, with some roasted flavors upfront but it quickly leaves you with a somewhat watery/metallic Brown Ale aftertaste. Some slight smokiness to it, but not enough for what I like in a Porter. Wishing it would have been a bit more chewy. Middle of the road Brown Porter.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2004
Medium brown hue with reddish highlights that produced a fading creamy tan head and very good lace. The aroma hints of zesty and dusty yeast esters, bittersweet chocolate, burnt malts, lactic tones, and coffee. The taste has a major sour component which detracts from the malt roast flavors. Was able to detect some mocha, coffee, nutty characteristics; as well as a noticeable bitterness. The finish is coffee and chalky smoke. The mouthfeel is very thin and fizzy. A below average porter. Too much hops and sourness. Good a bottle from both Eric and Joe, thanks guys.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Lots of persistant ran head and a touch of lacing. The aroma has a nice hop/chocolate aroma that is very smooth. This improves greatly with a little warmth. The flavor is well balanced, solid, mild. Finishes a bit watery and with a medium-light body. Good porter, made a porter float with it too!

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Totally black color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is choclately. A lighter bodied porter. Chocolate roasted malts. Flavors are chocolate, toffee, caramel and a hint of vanilla. Good balance of malts and hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. New label for this beer from Full Sail. I wonder if its their new label or just for their new beers.
