Eructoblaster (4069) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
Bottle - 650ml. Perfectly opaque black body topped with a thick beige frothy head. Strong and complex roasty/hoppy aroma with various notes of malt, coffee, dark chocolate, herbs and toffee. Taste is quite robust and dominated by a strong dry bitterness that may keep us from fully appreciating the various flavors and hints. It ends with an extremely long bitter/roasty finish. That porter definitely stands far above the average.

The bottle poured a deep (almost black) garnet liquid with a light tan, medium smooth head. The head dissipated quickly leaving a thin layer of tiny tan bubbles on the surface and some lacing on the glass. The primary aroma is of roast coffee and caramel but there were notes of alfalfa hay. The flavor reminded me of a fine cup of Starbucks French roast coffee that was aloud to get cold. The middle had a hint of hop bitterness and the malt sweetness came out to play as well. The finish was long and lingering leaving impressions of ... you guessed it ... coffee.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany in color with a decently-sized tan head. Aroma is full of chocolate and coffee notes. Flavor boasts mocha and roasted nuts, but its not very sweet....more smoky and dry. Overall, a great porter, one of my favorites.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Clear and dark brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Spicy and dusty chocolate aroma with some carob and a slight meatiness. Slightly acrid in flavor with a slick mouth feel and a small bitter finish. Lingering carob flavor. Some vanilla.

bark (255) - Linkping, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2005
Bottle. The colour is pitch black; the large pale brown foam dissolves very slowly.

The smell is fresh, bitter, robust and complex. I found notes of black coffee, some honey and vanilla.

The carbonation is pleasant and fresh with small bubbles.

The taste is dry and very bitter. There are notes of roasted malt, black coffee and a hint of smoke. The growing bitterness got a sour touch of lemon-lime is slowly replaced of a slightly creamy touch of cappuccino. There is almost no sweetness whatsoever. The aftertaste is very long and balanced with a soft burned note of burned malt, black coffee and a touch of cream.

In other words: A great American Stout.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle; Pitch black with rocky tan head. No aroma. Flavor of licorice and roast malt. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick, almost gravylike. Tasty, but a bit weird.
