RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 Pours a very dark brown almost black with a very thin head. Smells of coffee and choclate. Very smooth rich flavor. Ill be having more of this.

Looks like coffee with a thin brown head and maybe a touch of light peaking through. Coffee aroma. For some reason this makes me tired, I could swear theres more than 5.1% EtOH in this. Found this quite delicious overall.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2005
Very drinkable beer with a slightly sour aftertase.Not the best porter Ive had,(prefare Sierra Nevada or Fullers,) but very good and well worth the 1.99 from Sainsburys.

Very chocolatey coffee aroma sweet malt. Very smooth tasting. A good porter. Easily drinkable.

LJBrewing (22) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Surprising hop boquet with a very subtle roast aroma. Very sexy dark color. And the Mocha/Roast aftertaste is delicious. A little too aggresive on the IBUs the lingering bitterness is somewhat distracting. A fine example of American Porter. And the intitial hop effect melting into traditional acridity of a porter is a neat trick they came up with. I enjoy this brew.

dwyerpg (5829) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Smells like mocah and dark chocolate. Very nice in appearance. Mocha is also noticeable in the flavoring. Sweet but not too much, a great beer. It does get just slightly too thick and bittersweet on the aftertaste.

harrisoni (17574) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2005
650ml bottle. Dark brown, black colour, roasted malts, chocolate, slightly grainy feel in the mouth with more tart roasted choc malts on end. Not overly interesting but it does what it says on the tin

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - JUL 1, 2005
A deep dark brown with a thick frothy head that is mostly lasting. A strong coffee and chocolate aroma. A full bodied porter with characteristics of coffee with a hint of chocolate.

SunSkates (47) - Arkansas, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Dark dark brown color with uneven settling thick brown head. Strong chocolate aroma, with bread and slight sourness. Milk chocolate in flavor with some sweetness mixed with a bit of roasty dryness. Thick mouthfeel. Yum.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Great flavor. The most noteworthy attribute of this beer is the initial hop taste that trails cleanly into a bitter chocolate after taste. Not the best mouthfeel or aroma, but it looks and tastes nice enough.
