I just had this beer for the first time at the Flying Saucer last night and I must say it’s a great tasting porter. It has that chocolaty taste which I like in a dark beer. I give it an A- IndianaRed (4769) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Bottle Pours Black with a hughe creamy tan head. Lots of blocky lacing. Nose of dark, toastd malts, some coffe and plenty of chocolate. A slight sour tang common to the style but not so much. Nice dark roasted flavor. Smokey and charcoly, but a bit sweet and the oats lend a nice slick but still fairly light feel. Smokey bitter sharp trailer. Nice

Pours very dark but translucent with a beautiful head. The nose is roasted malt with a touch of chocolate. The palate is slightly hoppy but well balanced with the chocolate flavors coming in the middle. Good beer. 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.

Brown, a bit on the lighter brown/black side. Thin tan head. Roasty sweet brown sugar with noticable hop hints. Nice sweet roasty flavor. I’d 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, there’s not much character to this, and as a result, I don’t really care for it. Kevin (2200) - Montana, 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 Hershey’s 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

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. Didn’t smell much that would label this an "oatmeal" porter. I would’ve expected a little more bread/dough aroma. Taste was good, but not great. A nice little bit of coffee in the long finish.
