Looks nice. Medium dark pour with medium to small head. Tastes a little malty but not much. A bit too carbonated to rate tops but still quite drinkable. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 7, 2007
Clear dark chestnut color with a medium beige head. Roasty and fruity aroma. Notes of caramel and some cereal grain and notes of chocolate. Roasted flavor with chocolate. Dry finish. Light to medium bodied. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2007
This one starts with a good pour and nice typical porter aroma. However, there is something dry and thin bodied about it that keeps it from being really satisfying; decent but boring. LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2007
roasty nutty flavor with some carmel and milk chocolate. maybe a touch of coffee but not much. flavor much the same as the aroma. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Nice roasted nut flavor. Thick, creamy texture. the nose had a burnt wood pale hop smell. Some coffee flavors and chocolate. Had on tap and I would have this again if I found myself in a bar that had this on tap.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2007 Ft. Myers, Fl. - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Dark ruby red to brown pour with a fluffy mocha colored head. Good sweet chocolatey aroma with some earthy notes. Solid porter flavor with good bitter chocolate notes, a hint of dirt and a bit of day old coffee. Mouthfeel is tongue coating, thick and nice. Solid Porter.

This beer didn’t do much for me. It had a fair amount of roasted malt character, but also had an odd vegetable taste that seemed out of place. Not a beer I’d recommend, given the great number of porters in the world.
Color was an opaque black with abundant head. Aroma was a lightly sweet roastiness. Flavor was a muted roastiness, with an aforementioned vegetable taste I didn’t really enjoy. Mouthfeel was unremarkable. All-in-all, I wouldn not recommend this beer. ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2007
This brew made me want to brew a porter. Great roasted chocolate flavor, and slight sweetness make this a great beer. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2007
pours dark brown with a decent tan head. mocha aroma with a hint of caramel. flavor sweet chocolate with light bitter coffee notes. bitter medium dry coffee finish. light body. decent. drinkable. nothing great. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Very roasty london porter...dark roast grain, chocolate, coffee grounds, caramel and a touch of smoke in the finish. A bit thin-bodied, a detraction, but not terribly objectionable. Another fine offering from these guys.
