Pours very dark almost blank, tan head. Aroma is quite pleasant, roasted malt and milk chocolate. Flavor is coffee, bittersweet chocolate, sweet malt, and some vanilla. Nice creamy body. Complex yet drinkable. Good stuff.

Wow! This is by far the best Porter I’ve ever had. Very smooth and complex tastes. Borderline stoutish brew that brings it home. Highly drinkable and recommended.

Bottle is a little past drink by (April 06). Aroma is roasted malt and milk chocolate. Small head, with slight carbonation (which I think is a plus in a porter). Flavor is big time chocolate, a bit of coffee, some vanilla, some caramel. Finish is creamy and extremely well balanced with bittering hops and a bit of sourness. This is the bar by which I measure other porters.

Bottle, pours black with a light almond head. Nice lace. I’ve had stronger porters but this wasnt bad being I was drinking it outside.(It’s hot, I always enjoyed a porter or stout more in the winter.) Aroma is very choclate. Taste has the same with a mix of carmel and hops, the finish is all choclate which is my favortie part about this brew. Not my favorite porter but a good one none the less.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2006
pours from the bottle a vcery dark brown with thin, quickly rousable, and lacy oatmeal colored head. Aromas include roasted malt, coffee (almost kahlua like), with some carmel malt, and something like those Reisin candies. Just a touch of spice and smoke round this one out nicely. Hoppier than i expected from an English porter, with a chewy chocolate characteristic, with carmel malt, oatmeal, molasses, and light roast coffee, much like a breakfast blend. A touch light on the palate, thin and perfect carbonation, but overall very good.

PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Pours black with light brown head, not much retention. Aroma is mainly of chocolate malt roastyness and gingersnap cookie. Creamy body, flavor was smooth upfront roasty chocolate malt. Nice toasted mocha flavors with an espresso like finish. Drinkable and quality porter.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2006 Bottle. Pint. Best before 09/Sep/06. Poured a dark rich smokey brown with a fair size tan head that diminished rather quickly with minimal lacing. Taste of roasted hops and coffee very present with a slight bitterness that quickly disappears. A very nice Porter that I will certainly recommend.
