A smelly porter with a booze-ish flavor to the whole thing. This watery, slimy, flat porter was one to warm me up on a hot spring day. But in the end, all I could muster was a bellyache. Good day to you sir!

Nitro at Magnetic Field. Dark brown with cascading bubbles and a cream head. Basic dark roast malt aroma and flavor, with a bit of pruney (lactic?) tartness. Thins out rapidly on the finish. Not that good.

Just not what I expected, dark in color with a creamy head but light coffey chocolate taste. Just not much there.

Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate), moderately hoppy (grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately astringent. Overhopped aroma, acidic, astringent.

Not a big fan. It's my first "Porter" style beer though. I was imnpressed by the deep red color of the beer in the glass, but the head was not very impressive. It was pretty flat, and it seemed to me to have a sort of sour flavor in my mouth. It goes down smooth enough and is a decent drink. I believe it cost something like 6.50 dollars for six pack.

Bottled. I’m sad to say it but this isn’t even as good as home brew. Gutting really that someone should produce a Porter of such poor quality. Dark brown with a quickly settling tan head. Fishy aroma that effectively masks the malts underneath. It’s probably wrong of me to say home brew as many people brew better than this without trying.

12oz. Bottle: Smells faintly of choclate and malt. Dark brown in color, but looks a little thin. Poured with very slight head, that disappeared quickly. Slight lacing. Flavor is of choclate and vanilla. A little weak and watery. Palate was ok; no real finish to speak of. Overall, I am not that impressed, though it is not a bad beer.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Pours fairly black, aroma of malts, coffees. Flavor is quite bland compared to other porters. Sorta a disapointment.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours like Coke. Burnt chocolate aroma. Smoky coffee/chocolate taste. Very thin and watery. Slightly bitter, some metallic flavor, very boring
