Bottled (thanks heemer77!). Deep reddish/black colour with mediumsized brown bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, malts and some slight hops. Flavour is malts, chocolate and coffee along with some slight hoppy bitterness. Rather tasteful and drinkable beer, which leaves a big dark chocolate aftertaste.

Medium brown. Roasty, chocolatey aroma with cheap coffee. Thin, lightly toasty. Really lame. All-malt...really? It’s just too thin. bhensonb (15352) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Nearly opaque brown color with a minimal beige/tan head. Light chocolate notes over toasted malt. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is primarily toasted malt. There is a little chocolate, and likely some hop bitter. It finishes decently dry, and it’s very drinkable. Possibly the best A-B product I’ve ever had. It’s a respectable porter. djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head. The aroma is a roasted malt with coffee and caramel. Decent spotty lacing along the glass. Thin mouthfeel and a bit watery on the palate. Taste is roasted malt with dark chocolate and caramel. Easy to drink, a decent porter from Michelob.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown[almost black] with a lasting amber head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and a hint of coffee. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of chocolate, roastiness and a hint of vanilla with a smooth lingering roasty finish.

Bottle from sampler case. Pours dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that was lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee nutty aroma. Medium to full body. Balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of an average duration. Drinkable porter. Drake (13954) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2008
12 oz. bottle from a sampler. Chocolate brown pour with a one-finger head and low head retention. Very, very faint aroma is straight roasted malt. Roasted malt taste with bitter coffee notes. Medium bodied. Not bad. Dogbrick (13146) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2006
This beer is a dark reddish-brown color with a thick and foamy beige head that diminishes leisurely. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of coffee with a touch of malt. Medium-bodied and smooth with coffee and malt flavors. Light coffee and hops bitterness shows up periodically. The finish is creamy with a light coffee aftertaste. Better than expected, although it doesn’t really push the envelope in any way. Average all around. jcwattsrugger (12471) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2008

"a little thin for a porter...maybe more on par with an average american brown ale. not bad, but not something worth buying again, especially with all the more robust porters out there. "
