Thanks Chuck! Pours to a fairly dark brown color. With an off-white head that laces pretty well. The aroma is VERY nice. Dry roasted malts. Coffee, light chocolate. The palate is very creamy and dry. Light bitterness. The flavor is chocolately, coffee, grassy hops, really tasty. More porters should strive to be like this one. There’s a bit of lactose type sweetness to this one. I like this one a lot. Very good roastyness. The palate is very well balance to the flavor. I could drink this a lot!

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2005
pours a a nice dark color w/ a red hint in it and a nice light off white head laces well stays well carbonation bubbles are light. A bittersweet chocolate smell very dry. Palate is pretty dry but coats pretty well. Flavor is a dry chocolate mocha flavor a little bit of sweet malt back and a very light hop in the finish. Overall a well made beer but more of a dry stout than a porter in my book.

Dry coffee malt and finish. I see how many people could like this brew, but it’s too dry fo rmy tastes...to each his own I guess. Not bad but I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours a dark, dark ruby-brown with almost no head and no lacing. Smells nutty with wisps of chocolate and dark malt. Tastes nutty with bitter chocolate undertones. Roasted malt falvors as well. Bitter finish. Smooth and tasty. Medium bodied beer but rich tasting and complex. Very, very good porter.

tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Best Before 29/AUG/05 Served in a Nonik Poured with a thick frothy tan head, but faded to just some whisping. Dark brown with ruby highlights. Pretty light carbonation. Dark chocolate, mild roasted coffee, maybe some prunish notes in the nose. No hops. I get the chocolate and coffee flavor also, but in the end it has this undesireable something that I find in most Fullers brews. Its pretty think in the mouth, and the finish stick with you for a bit. Not a bad beer, but I won’t search it out again. Wouldn’t turn it away either.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2005 This is a nice Old World styled porter. It has some nice coffee notes among its malt characteristics but could use more. It’s just a little light in the mouth feel--is probably much better on tap. A good mass-produced porter when there’s nothing else beside Guinness, Beamish, or Murphy’s.

lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2005
Bottle. Best before date: 09/02/05. Very dark mahogany pour with thick creamy dark sandy head. Roasty, chocolatey nose with a little bit of coffee, yet creamy at the same time. Medium-bodied but still pretty rich. Pretty smooth and creamy going down. Tastes like carbonated dark coffee with hints of dark chocolate. Nice bitterness. This is overrated. I’ve had better porters before.
