Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malt, dark fruit, spice. Tastes bitter and roasty with some nice earthiness, chocolate, lightly spicy. Full bodied mouthfeel. Amazing beer. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Black with big, foamy beige head / Big, smokey, roasty, chocolate and tobacco nose / Medium to full body, rich roast malts, touch of sweetness, and with some creamy hops on the long finish / Flavors of nuts, bittersweet chocolate, roast coffee, tobacco, and licorice / Outstanding - would stand up to many stouts.

A subtle aroma with a fantastic taste. Great color with no bite. One if the best porters around by far. dbhenry (139) - El Paso, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2013
A delicious porter, very dark, with a medium head. The caramelized malt aroma and taste are the distinguishing factors. The malt overpowers the hops, which I like. Excellent porter taste. MarkSachon (1009) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2014
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Nearly perfect. Smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish.

Bottle, in an alley near the Lama temple in Beijing.
Shame I did not write anything about this fabulous beer. Only the marks. I was too busy trying to figure out how to go back to hotel. burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 28, 2004
The aroma was filled with the smell of freshly brewed java. It poured with a medium head and a deep, dark body. The taste was pleasant, unique--almost a sweet, cola taste with hints of coffee. lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Heavy dark pour. Little to no head. Mild carbonation. Delicious chocolaty coffee flavors. Malty, creamy. Not overpowering like some porters. Just a hint of hops to balance it out. Wish I had more than one. Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Excellent coffee, roasted porter, that isn’t too heavy but has a good apv. I would place this at the top of the Left Hand collection. THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2001
Excellent. The look of the bottle didn’t give me the impression of this beer being so good. Malty, smooth, and beautiful to gaze upon. Especially in a drunken state.
