madsberg (11798) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
Bottled: Red brown coloured. Off white head. Malty and chocolaty aroma. Flavour is sweet and chocolaty with a hoppy and light roasty edge. Is light watery and thin. Thanks SpringsLicker for trading this.

shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle. Dark chocolate and molasses malt aroma. Dark brown color with small head. Strong chocolate malt flavor with a slight burnt grain and hops finish. Nice full palate which is closer to a stout in mouthfeel. A great porter.

hopscotch (11419) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Bottle... Extremely dark pour (clear ruby when held up to bright light). Small, fizzy, beige head. Both the aroma and flavor are somewhat bland, but unoffensive. Maybe a light touch of chocolate. Light-bodied and lightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. Watery finish. Not bad, but nothing really going on here either.

alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2007
12 oz. bottle from decaturstevo. Thanks Steve. Pours a clear dark brown color with a medium sized beige head that collapses to a thin layer. The aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malt, and just a hint of fruit. The flavor has the same roasted malts, fruits (cherry), chocolate, with some sourness in the finish. Medium bodied at best. Very drinkable.

DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Thanks to Suttree for this. Pours dark black (deep burgundy through direct light) with one-finger tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocoff, cabernet. Tastes malty, with a smooth, complex mouthfeel giving way to big chocoff, some hops, and a fruity merlot-ish finish. Admirable balance and complexity. As it warms, more chocolate syrup comes out, and some milk stouty elements. Reminds me a little of Lancaster Milk Stout. Nice beer.

3.4
gnoff (11138) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Bottled from Total Wine & More Clearwater, on January 21, 2014.
Filled 11/19/13. 12 fl oz.
Clear dark brown color, fluffy teal head. Sweet, malty, a bit hoppy taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.. Sweet, malty scent. Grainy aftertaste.

3.1
ManVsBeer (11126) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Extremely dark red with a small head. Its dark malts have a small grittiness to them, but no real roasted malts found here. There is a smoothness within its texture.

3.5
jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
2008-10-14. Black body with brown around the edges, decent tan head. (4+) Dusty malt n the aroma, light sweet and roasty malt hints at licorice, very mild herbal touches. (7+) Similar flavour, dry cocoa kissed dusty malt, light herbaceous touches. (7+) Average to thin bodied palate is quite thin for a porter and probably the only significant flaw for me. Pleasant. Bottle shared by Jon Walker

3.8
daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle in Atlanta. Very nice. Super dark pour with a nice beige head. Coffee, chocolate and caramel are evident on the nose and in the flavor. Some good sweetness and a bit yeaty. Mouthfeel isnt quite as good as the flavor, but this is good stuff.

3.4
phaleslu (10895) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark coffee brown with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of oatmeal, toasted and roasted malts, brown sugar, nuts, and chocolate. The flavor hits the same notes. Light-medium bodied, with a nutty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor doesn’t follow up to the aroma’s standards but this is a good oatmeal porter anyway.
