kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2008
22 oz bottle, via 5000. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy brown head that vanished quickly to a thin ring. The nose is really roasty and chocolaty with some light burnt caramel. Some moderate hoppiness. First thought was that it was pretty hoppy, and maybe a little husky. Equal parts chocolate malt and chalky roast, very dry. Mouthfeel is dry with a watery texture and nice soft fizzy carbonation. Long roasty finish. Overall, a nice enjoyable hoppy Porter. Not the greatest, but a solid effort.

Bottle from bitbucket - thanks! This one has a darker brown color with a medium head. Aroma has some pleasant chocolate and roast. Flavor has a stronger chocolate/roast thing going on but fell off a bit as it seemed a tad oxidized. Drinkable, but not all that well put together.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2008
22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, and some toasted caramel. Tastes of roast, coffee, and light chocolate. Body on the thinner side.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2008
2/15/08 On draught at Whistle Stop Ale House, Renton, Wa. Aroma is roast malt, with light chocolate, no black malt and creamy sweetness. Appearance is black with a moderate, even tan head. Flavor is heavily roasted, with some astringent sourness and very low sweetness . Mouthfeel is full bodied, with a relatively dry mouthfeel and finish for a porter. Carb feel is a little above average for the style. Overall, this left me alittle disappointed, as the flavor definitely didn’t live up to the promising aroma.

hotstuff (5272) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Draft at Hales Ales, Seattle, WA. Tan head that was mostly lasting, lacked lacing, mostly opaque, no visible carbonation, and a black hue. Roasty, malty, caramel notes, chocolate and hoppy nose. Flavor was roasty, chocolate, light coffee, malty and somewhat thin tasting. Smooth, thin mouthfeel. Light-medium body. There was something off about this one in the flavor and thus the low rating.

jimhilt (2630) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Pours a one finger light tan head that fades slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Deep mahogany color. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Roasted/burnt coffee nose. Flavor is roasted/burnt coffee, a little sweetness, smooth. Bakers chocolate aftertaste. $3.99 for a 22oz bottle from John’s Marketplace Portland, OR.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle poured black with a nice thick brown head with a nice sheet of lacing that coats the inside of my favorite glass.
Aroma and flavor of bitter, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee.
moderately sweet with a thin/ medium body. not bad at all with a lightly bitter finish and a good mouthfeel.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Very dark with very little head....reminds me of espresso. Hints of chocolate, coffee, and something else "I can’t quite put my finger on."

hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
pours very dark brown with orange highlights. it’s topped with a thin cocoa head that quickly disappears to nothing. aromas of bittersweet chocolate, roasty malts, dark dried fruits and a lacto character. flavor is a bit of...caramel, grassy hops, wood, ashy roasted malts, smoky acidity and chocolate. i say a bit because it doesn’t really have much in the flavor department and nothing really stands out. coffee is present in the aftertaste with some chocolate. thin bodied with low carbonation. i thought it would develop as it warmed but just disappointed. cold or warm this beer is meh.
