If you love Starbucks coffee, you will love this beer. It has a nutty middle and an expresso kind of bitterness.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Poured a very dark brown, with a creamy off-white head. A malty roasted aroma, but rather subdued. Fairly smooth from start to finish, and got better as it warmed. Not a great beer, but not a bad one either.

muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Large creamy off-white head tops an opaque brackish body; nice balanced malty/coffee-bitter nose. Flavor just so-so, a little watery as the last rater mentions, somewhat lacking in real character, pretty average.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - OCT 12, 2002
Earthy nose of perfumed hops, chocolate, coffee, caramel undertones, and smoke. Pours dark brown with red highlights. The average creamy tan head is mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Smoky flavor is sweet with an average lightly bitter (for a porter) finish and low acidity. Full body is soft to lively and oily. The finish feels alcoholic.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2002
A nice smooth porter, not overpowering in smokieness or coffee, like a lot of porters are. Has a nice nutty tinge that while unusual is quite good.

greystreet80 (191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2002
I am not big on porters, but this one is pretty mild and fairly drinkable. Best on tap, Ill tell ya that much.

Cam501 (58) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2002
Not as full bodied as most good porters but very drinkable. Slightly hoppy finish.

Discofish (152) - USA - SEP 27, 2002
I excpected a much more full bodied flavor from a porter. Almost no head. Kinda hoppy.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - SEP 20, 2002
Productive pour, light malty damp aroma, vaguely chocolaty. Medium bodied, light and drinkable. Roasted malt is subtley done, hints of nuttiness. Not much finish, just a little bitterness. Easy drinking 6-pack but has no particular richness of better porters.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2002
Dark ruby brown hue. Creamy light brown head. Roasted malt aroma, with hint of hop. Kinda bland at first, slight sweetness. Light bodied for a porter. Alot of carbonation. The only thing this porter has going for it is the bitter crisp hopped up finish. The bottle says NOT BITTER, but whatever. This brew is much better on nitro than from the bottle.
