Big thanks to the RBer who sent this to me. Dark black body with a thin tan head that quickly diminishes. Nice aroma, caramel and chocolate malts with a nice hop background. Bitter chocolate taste, smooth body. Very nice ending, highly enjoyable.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a frothy tan cappucion-esque head that fades quickly. Nice amount of draped lacing line the glass. Smells of coffee, milk chocolate, and rich malty goodness. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate with a good dollup of hops to bring some spiciness to the table. This is a very rich and delicious porter.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle from trade with kmweaver. Thanks Ken! Pours a nice dark brown with a medium tan head. Has a nice medium body beer with an aroma of cocoa and roasted coffee. Has a nice hoppy taste that leaves a pleasently bitter overtone. This is a very nice porter!

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2006
I like this porter a lot. Pours dark brown and the head is a tan color. Tasted a bit of chocolate and coffee and I think I tasted a bit of nut too. Smells much the same. Great beer.

keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Hands down my favorite porter. Enjoyed at Great Taste of the Midwest beer festival in Madison, WI. Very dark brown or even black in appearance, tan head. Roasted aroma with chocolate thrown in. Flavor is more mocha notes. Very smooth mouthfeel, this cat is drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2006
Thanks OhioDad. Dark brown beer, thick light brown head. Aroma is sweet and chocolatey with herbal chicory notes as well. Some rye toast, a bit of smoke and even some light leathery notes. Very rich malty aroma. Flavour is cocoaish, dry huskiness to the malts. Rich leathery/smoked malts. Some toast and light herbal flavour as well. Full-bodied, lingering hoppy dryness and bitterness. Charry finish. Is there anything this brewery makes that isnt world-class?

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Pours dark brown/black from the bottle, with a foamy tan head. Aroma is strong coffee and roasted malts, as well as some hops that manage to shine through the roast. Flavor is like dark chocolate and coffee with hoppy notes coming in toward the middle, to give it a slightly bitter finish.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Bottle. Nearly opaque body with a medium foamy head. Nose-raisin bread, cold molasses. Taste-fig, light unsweet coco, light acid. This is an outstanding beer, not because it has assembled within it amazing flavors, although it does, but because it is done so well. This exemplifies what a porter should taste ice, with the light coffee, dust, straw, and roast coming together perfectly, not flavor over compensating for the other. Perfectly made with quality ingredients. You cant beat that.
