1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours to a very dark but transparent body with a hugely creamy tan head. The aroma is roastey brown sugar and light chocolates and coffee. The flavor is tootsie rolls, bittersweet chocolate, caramel squares. The palate is very silken, medium bodied, smooth.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle. Clear dark brown body, wispy tan head - soapy lacing. Tootsie roll and prune in the aroma. Tart unripe strawberry and bitter dark chocolate over sweeter chocolate/caramel malt in the flavor. The finish has some fruity wood characteristics. A nicely bitter porter. Medium mouthfeel.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Brown, a bit on the lighter brown/black side. Thin tan head. Roasty sweet brown sugar with noticable hop hints. Nice sweet roasty flavor. Id have to say... generally nice flavor. Chocolate, brown sugar, roasty coffee. Good stuff!

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Has a pleasant malty aroma. Nice deep brown body with a thin tan head. Flavor is kind of weak, slightly roasty, but not much to pick up on. Body and texture is kind of light. Overall, theres not much character to this, and as a result, I dont really care for it.

Kevin (2195) - Texas, USA - APR 13, 2006
Tap at the saucer in Nashville. Not quite pitch black, more of a liquid see through black with a rice crispy treat colored head. Nothing from the nose, it smells of water and carbonation, I might as well smell a glass of soda water. Flavor is dry copper and processed Hersheys cocoa powder. This is empty and leaves me wanting. A horrible mint taste is there at the end. just saw how far i differ from what others experienced and i will rerate next chance i get Ap-3 ar-2 tas- 4 pal-2 ov-8

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2006
Dark red/brown color with a medium lasting tan head. Aroma is roasty and chocolaty with a hint of cereal. Flavor is balanced with roasted grains and chocolate. Lighter in body than some porters, but not to the point of taking away points. A good brew.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2006
Nice crown head on top of the black body. A good amount of lacing. Typical aroma for a porter: coffee, burnt, toasted, but little in th eway of hops. Didnt smell much that would label this an "oatmeal" porter. I wouldve expected a little more bread/dough aroma. Taste was good, but not great. A nice little bit of coffee in the long finish.

on tap at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur GA. blackish chestnut-ruby color, mostly thick medium tan head. aroma is chocolate malt, a little roasty. mouthfeel is a bit watery, but still has a dry maltiness. a bit of licorice. lively carbonation. a little hop in the finish and aftertaste.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Pours very dark ruby with off-white head. Nice roasty aroma with a hint of alcohol and hops. Flavor is somewhat weak. Slightly sour and malty at first and then bitter and dry at the end.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours black with a beautiful off white head. Faint aroma of vanilla and coffee. Very heavy roasted malt flavor. Finish is bitter, slightly dry, with some hints of pepper. There is a very strong aspirin like aftertaste that I am not digging.
