Bottle poured black with a nice thick head and lacing that hangs on the glass in a sheet. Rich, sweet roasty malt aroma. Flavor is roasty malts,chocolate and coffee. Good medium bodied porter with a rich roasty chocolate finish. Thanks Bockyhorsey!!

Aromas of dry dark chocolate and coffee. Taste begins rather dry and subtle, with some light coffee notes. The chocolate malts make their presence towards the finish with a bit of raisin as well. Finshes dry and hoppy, especially the more it warms. A rather loght body for a typical porter. This is a solid brew in every category, but does nothing really special. Flavor seems rather subdued and muted throughout the spectrum. Needs some more oomph. Still wanting the try it on tap. Will rerate.

Brought back from Morgantown WV after visiting my daughterin WVU. I had just seen them lose to VT with Marcus Vick. Suprised to get almost no head from this pour. Very good and sweet. I really liked this Porter.

Bottle. Dark deep brown pour. Huge roasty malt aroma and flavors. Chocolate more prevalent in flavor to me. Some coffee and hops, and moderate bitterness (tho that could have been dwarfed by the robust roast flavors). Good robust porter.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2007 12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark, nearly opaque ruby/brown. Two finger tan head that i slong lasting and leaves excellent lace. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel with a nice malty richness. Roasted malt flavors that are not too sweet and complimented by a subtle hop bitterness. Ive had this many times over the years, and it remains one of my favorite porters.

Had this on tap in southern Michigan. It was served a little too cold, but it was still a treat to savour. Thick rich mouth feel compliment the dark taste. It isnt too watery, some subtle hoppiness to give this more than just a smoky backbone. Good malt depth. The beer isnt overwhelmingly good, just good.

Ron brought a couple of these over tonight. A fine brewer. This was a nice reddish brown color with a light tan thin head. Fruity, toasted aroma. Hoppy palate with a finish of toasted malt and hops.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - OCT 6, 2005
A nice and roasty porter with slight chocolate undertones. Smooth and moderate on the palate. The hops dont really show up in the middle but add some bitterness on the end. A very drinkable, nice porter. Clean, with a nice roasty coffee aroma. A good beer that is not overstated at all.

Strange aroma that had a metallic edge predominating. Dark brown with a nice tan head. Flavor was really good with light coffee, a really good chocolate malt, and hops on the back of the tongue. Smooth and full texture made this a wonderful porter outside of the aroma. Thanks to OhioDad for this wonderful Ohio brew.
