A solid porter. A bit weak for my tastes, and a bit too sweet. Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2002
Roasted aroma, small beige head. Roasted malt flavor. Light body. Hoppy finish 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. gerdy555 (163) - Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2002
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 biomechanic (55) - Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Not a bad beer but is kind of watery for the style. Not very alcoholic and goes down smooth.

Pours a black and nearly opaque color with a very mild light brown head that does not hang around. Nose is roasty and nutty. Star is pretty undefined, followed by a very hearty rich nuttyness that is not bitter like the bottle promised. There might be a slightest hint of fruit in there as well. The palate is perfect and feels great going down. A very drinkable beer. There may be some complexity that is lacking. ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Typical pour of a porter, very black. Smoky aroma, roasted malt, roasted nuts. Very smooth, nothing smacks you in the face initially, but the finish is a caramelly, roasted malt, nuttiness. Nice sweetness, but not overpowering. The only knock is the lack of a taste initially, otherwise this is a very nice beer. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Wow! I really enjoyed this porter, although perhaps I was just happy to drink a porter again after such a long hiatus (had not ordered a porter in quite a while). Pours very dark, nice and thick with a medium tan head, aroma was bitter and sharp, although chocolate and coffee dominated. Flavor was pleasant, though mild. Overall I like this one, and will get it again. snoworsummer (5698) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2013
Nitro. Pours black with a tan foamy head. Medium body and low carbonation. Smooth and creamy, tastes like coffee. Light aroma of bread, toast, malt.
