hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2008
Vey dark brown with a beige head. Very slight malt aroma, Taste is pleasantly restrained: some sweetness, more sourness, and a little bitterness. The carbonation is rather annoying, but overall this does a good job.

Bottled (BB 08/2008)
Very dark ruby color, steady creamy beige head. Milky, chocolaty toasted aroma. Toasted malty, coffee liquerish flavor, burned maltyness and cocoa milk in the finish. Oatmeal is evident here. Interesting beer.

jercraigs (10060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2008
2008-03-19. Very dark brown body with ruby highlights, modest creamy beige head. (3+) Sweet caramel malt aroma up front gains mocha and roast as it moves on. (6+) Flavour is similar, sweet mild malt with touches of caramel and dilute roasty mocha, pleasant but a bit thin. (6+) Average palate similarly borders on the thin side at times. In hindsight I find that it is similar to a lot of sweetish dark beers from the UK, it has a lot of these nice flavours that invite you to look deeper, but does not deliver any additional insight when you take them up on their offer. Pleasant and enjoyable but average. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

Bottle, thanks pivnizub. Light bready roast aroma. Dark chestnut, creamy brown head. Medium to light body, roasted, earthy and herbal hops, preserved plums, nutty finish. Roasted aftertaste.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle (500ml). At Volo, courtesy of DougShoemaker, shared with biegaman and mds - thanks, Doug!. Lovely clear yet deep dark mahogany pour, decent creamy tan head. Aroma of "dark fruit" (raisin, currant, maybe a hint of cherry), sweet overroast malt, a little herbal, but sweet under the roast. Taste - again sweet deeply roasted malt, not overpowering, quite a lot of somewhat acidic cereal grain, no alcohol to speak of. Light bodied, but plenty of flavour, perceptible acidity and a little burnt bitterness in the linger - tasty, ultimately a little simple and sweet, but well done.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a dark red mahogany with a light tan head. Very minimal lacing. Aroma is toasty, hint of alcohol and plum. No spice or hops. Flavor is warm and toasty. Hop presence is all but absent. Only a hint of spice and citrus. Malt is dominant, with lots of coffee and cola vibes. Light bodied, mild cloying on the finish. Feels appropriate to a light bodied porter like this. Very enjoyable and drinkable porter. Much thanks to Doppelganger for sending this one my way.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Cask in Portree. Mostly clear dark brown with red reflections. A strange combination of butterscotch and chocolate mellow roastiness. Barely any fruitiness, but soft cerealic mouthfeel. Straight up roasted grain finish. Rather timid all throughout. The bar was not very crowded, I suspect the turnover is not that good.

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a great mahogany red with a giant creamy cff white head - super lacing on my glass. Aroma is malrt, lightly roasted and with a fair amount of dried fruits. Quite low carbonation. Flavour is round, sweet, rather roasted with a heavy tone of berries and dried fruits. Nice porter.

Enjoyit (3790) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
Dark brown of color with a beige head. An aroma of roasted malt, coffee, hints of dark fruits and bitter notes. A flavor of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and bitter notes.
