Almost opaque dark brown with ruby highlights. The mocha head is very nice, dense creamy and producing excellent lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and some nice citurs hops. The flavor continues the parade of things to like about this beer, hints of choclate chip cookie dough, along with coffee and a good dose of hops. Mediumn body, roasty finish. Damn fine porter.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 Bottle Pours a very dark redish brown. A large frothy offwhite tan head and some spotty, coarse lacing. Aroma is of coffee, smioke, leather and a bit of licorice. Not particularly full or rich though. Taste is smokey mostly, but then after a few seconds comes the bitter coffee flavor. Ah..60 IBUs....
Feel is very soft and easy. Good stuff
Thanks to EddieG for the trade. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2004
There were some things I really liked about this porter. For one, its about as easy drinking and refreshing as any porter (and many other styles as well) Iíve ever tasted. On the other hand, while refreshing is nice, porters tend to be roastier and fuller than this one. Good and different, but not a great in my opinion. burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2004
yeah. mmmmmm. yeah. a great porter that takes a load off of you without putting the hurt on you. the commercial description is very apt, though the coffee taste could have been a bit strong for my taste. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
Deep brown in colour. Aroma of very mild chocolate, maybe some cherries, malt and some smoke. Flavour of dark chocolate malt with a chalky bitterness and small amounts of coffee. Medium-large body. Finishes with a long bitterness and slightly dry.

Pours black with ruby edges under a huge, rocky head. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Chocolatey flavor along with the coffee. Full bodied and wonderful. frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Dark ruby with a tan head. Raosty dark malt aroma with a hint of plum. Chocoaltey malt flavor with some light roasty notes. Hoppy bitterness in the finish with some slightly sweet fruit notes. Not bad at all. Thanks secret santa. barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2004
(bottle) One of the best porters I can remember having. Understated notes of coffee and chocolate. I really look forward to having this in draft form. leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 24, 2004
This is a coffee lovers dream. It pours a dark coffee like color. A strong coffee prescence in the nose with hints of chocolate and malt coming through. Overall a well balanced beer with a mild carbonation and strong coffee and roasted malt flavors. Adding to that mix of flavors are hints of chocolate and a mild hoppy finish. This is a very good porter.
