In the bottle at Bill B.s birthday party. Brownish-black in color with a nice off-white head. Head has a great fluffy staying power. Slightly roasted and slightly sour aroma. Lots of chocolate flavor. Smooth and balanced. A very good beer.

(trade by way of 1faststi)this porter was a deep see-through red in appearance,and had a tiny brown head.my nose picked up aromas of chocolate,coffee grounds,raosted malts,and fudge.the flavor was a nice mix of chocolate,coffee,fudge,and hops.the mouthfeel was a bit on the light side,and the palate was complex and long lasting.

Pours black with thick and creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and caramel. The flavor starts rich and roasted - chocolate and caramel, ends with piney bitterness. Medium body, mouthfeel is light.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours a very dark brown with slight ruby edges when held up to a light, with a one finger off-white head the fades to a spotty cap that trails some nice lacing. Smell; it has a kind of earthy and nutty smell, along with some roasted coffee beans and hints of chocolate. Taste; really nice roasted coffee flavor to start with, followed by some chocolate malts that is balanced with just enough hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a nice smooth carbonation. I was sure this wouldnt live up to the hype, but this is definitely one of the best American Porters Ive ever had.

Radek Kliber (7231) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 3, 2006
Dark brown, white neat tan look. Nice roasty aroma with definitive hop character, clean mocha java around. Medium bodied, light mineral hop character, woody, roasty with strong coffee accents. Drinkable, pleasure if you are coffee drinker.

direwolf2002 (14) - USA - JAN 3, 2006
Poured with a nice, dark, creamy appearance. Nice inviting head. Thick, almost chewable beer. Pleasant, deeply intoxicating aroma. Chocolate, coffee or espresso flavors, a hint of nuttiness. Pleasant aftertaste, with a hint of bitterness. My Favorite everyday beer.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This beer says hello with a wonderfully pleasing roasted malt aroma. This beer produces a good thick creamy brown colored head that rests upon a dark chocolate tinted solution. This beer rolls over the tongue thick and heavy distributing a healthy chocolate taste that smoothly fades to a coffee taste as flows down the throat.

GregClow (3255) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
Draught at Coles in Buffalo. Deep brown colou with a moderate tan head. Sweet, roasty aroma of chocolate and coffee. Body is thinnish, but creamy and pleasant. Flavour is really solid, with the promised chocolate and coffee notes along with a bit of smoke. This was served to me nearly ice cold, and didnt do much for me at first, but as it warmed I started to see why its so highly regarded. A very nice porter.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours to a huge, reverse cascading creamy tan head atop a clear dark cola brown body. Excellent lacing. The aroma is sweet buttery malts and instant coffee. Some grassy hops. The flavor is like a hopped coffee and iced tea. Good flavor. The palate is smooth and creamy. Almost watery at times. Goes well with this beer. A pretty good porter.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle. Pour black, head was small ring around the glass. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Aroma is of sweet malt and roasted coffee, with similar taste. Creamy in the mouth. Not a bad porter, but I was expecting a little more.
