this is a pretty good porter. pours black with little head that doesn't last long anyway. very good chocolate malt flavoring and it is well balanced with the hops i will definatly try more from these guys TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2002
A tasty pint for sure. Looks as good as it tastes; dark, dark brown with decent head retention. Not for the casual beer drinker but a great example of the style. stephen (308) - California, USA - JUL 30, 2002
On Nitro at BW3 in Knoxville. Beautiful. Slightly sweet. Chocolate shines through with a slight roasty note. A session porter for sure. I didn't get the lively hopping as described in the commercial description. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUL 28, 2002
An slightly above average porter. Brown, with a touch of red color. Almost a cross between robust and a brown porter. Chocolate flavors along with slight coffee. Dry dark malt bitter finish. nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2002
Full bodied, lots of flavor. Excellent Porter. ...........................

Just not what I expected, dark in color with a creamy head but light coffey chocolate taste. Just not much there. bigal9699 (152) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 3, 2002
I expected more from this beer - had it on tap and I believe it was fairly fresh. Black color, very creamy head - by appearance, thought it would be a real treat. Mothfeel was of medium silky smooth. But where are the flavors? Very muted taste ... slight hints of coffee and bakers chocolate - but again, very faint. I was disappointed and will not be buying again.
