I probably shouldn’t have had this for lunch but it seemed a bit much for me at the time. It was a bit strong for me at the time, though I’ll try it again if I see it.

Ernest (7669) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, dark chocolate/cocoa), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Straightforward/plain, and the hops are a bit overdone, but decent enough.

Where’s the mocha? It could be more pronounced. I don’t really care for this porter as I prefer several others over this. It’s heavy on the bitterness. Coffee notes.

Nuffield (4169) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2002
Caramel colored head, not exceedingly dense, but rich and gorgeous as it clung to the edges of the glass. I didn’t find as much in the aroma as I expected--almost a pale ale to me. Nor was there the depth of mocha-ness I thought a beer of this name deserved. So hoppy! A bit of coffee-like bitterness and some complementary flavors emerged in the 2nd half of it, but it still underwhelmed. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX; thanks to Legion242 for buying this one!)

This beer surprised me a little, and pleasantly so. Didn’t expect to like it but found it enjoyable.

First, the appearance of this beer is simply wonderful. Just looking at it adds a great deal to the experience and anticipation. The aroma seems a little thin and lacking, however. The flavor is nice, and goes down fairly easy. I had hoped for a little more *umph* from the flavor, but it's still good. A nice beer.

3.3
BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2003
Body is brown and black. Head is brown and large with good lacing. Nose is coffee, chocolate and grapes. Taste is coffee and sweet with a robust bitter finish.

3.3
JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 2, 2003
Dark brown/near black with a thick tan head. Smells like an APA, with hints of grapefruit and only a faint dark maltiness. Initial grapefruit flavors with following flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted barley and light coffee. Late finish is near sour with a hops bite that is a bit much for style.

3.3
Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2003
It looks muddy with a fine head. Mild coffeeish aroma. The flavour is a little thin with notes of coffee and hops. A decent brew.

3.3
Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2003
Bottled. Dark brown with creamy, lacy head. Moderate black malt aroma. Roasted, burnt, and totally ashed malt flavours. Not sure if there is true coffee flavour or just over roasted malt. Slightly thin but still smooth palate.
