Nuffield (4106) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Dark brown, not black, and loosely formed head. Gentle coffee aroma but also milk and grape. Moderately short finish, caramel, toasty, roasted, and some cardboard. Pretty good if you get past a slightly lactic edge. (2004 Christmas Party, my #11, groups #5)

jazz88 (2674) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 25, 2004
Bottle. A dark brown color with a laced brown head. Vanilla, toasted malts, dry and nicely balanced for a porter. A long enjoyable toasted malt aftertaste. Christmas Party 2004 ranked 5/15 (mine) and 5/15 (group).

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Very dark brown color with a small tiny bubbled tan head. Lightly oily and silky feel. Fig pudding and treacle aromas. Treacle and mild earthy malt flavors. Light iron and thin port finish.

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Dark, roasted malt aroma with bourbon notes. Nice, but somewhat subtle. Dark ruby red, brown in color. no head. Smooth flavor; dry with chocolate malts. A little too lactose in the finish. Ok. Probably the best of the Harveys line Ive had. But thats not saying much.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Sweet carmel nose infused with a hint of alcohol. It is pretty flat and mostly tastes like coffee and burnt chocolate. I just cant seem to find a porter that I really like.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Bottle. Small tan head with fair amount of lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Malt and some alcohol aroma. Coffee and malt flavor. Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied porter. Definitely not one of the better porters that I have rated. Disappointing.

badgerben (4958) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Dark brown color with a medium head. Malty aroma. Heavy malt and coffee taste. Slightly bitter. Pretty creamy. Nice porter.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Dark Brown Coloring. Tints of Red When Held To the Light. Good Head. Chocolate Aroma, Little Burnt. Flavor is of a Very Good Porter. Some Roasts, Coffee and Chocolate...Little Thick, Creamy and Very Easy Going Down.. Not alot of Character but Decent Porter Either Way.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Fully dark brown color, with slight reddish tints, under a thin tan head. Aroma, nice and creamy, light, bit of cocoa, but perhaps a bit too less? Taste: smoothness incarnate, light and breezy, for a dark ale. Flavors of cocoa and coffee reside on the palate, butdont trouble the tongue too much. Decent porter, I guess, but I was hoping for more, much more, and I have to be disappointed, especially considering the price of the bottle. Not going to return to this one, sad to say...

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Pretty damn black. Interesting and intriguing nose. Whiffs of apple cider, caramel and milk chocolate. Non aggresive and certainly not offensive but there isnt much going on here. Front is mainly sweet and soft with some diverse earthy tones. Mid is lightly roasted coffee, some light dark fruitiness and milk chocolate. Finish has a hint of pepper, notes of grapes and a lingering dry, nutty and chocolatey presense on the palate.
