Bottled. I thought that this was an excellent porter. The body was dark brown with some garnet at the edges. A light brown colored head. The aroma was strong cocoa with some light coffee. There were also some roasted peanuts. The taste was cocoa with some light coffee. The body had low carbonation and that helped to make this easy to drink. Very nicely done.

A dark clear brown porter with a thin moka head. Musty herbal chocolate aroma. In mouth, a chocolate malt, lightly roasted, with nutty notes, lighter bodied, but quite nice. Bought at Booze Bros, Reno, August 2007. Sampled June 8, 2008. DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle from Booze Bros., in Reno, NV. Poured a very dark brown with a small head. Roasted malts dominated the flavor of the beer. A little bit of nutty flavor during the aftertaste. Not a bad brew. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
DTM picked this one up from Nevada. It was a light porter (?) with distinct chocolate, cigar, and nutty overtones. Definitely not a great porter, but a departure from the norm. JohnnyJ (5545) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pretty boring porter if you ask me. Thin body, kind of roasty, some malt and grain, and a bit of floral hops. Small hints of cocoa and nuts.
ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Appearance: Pours a dark brown body with reddish-hued edges and topped by a thin, fizzy off-white head.
Smell: Faint cocoa aroma with some sharp fruity notes.
Taste: Brown malts with a sweetish cocoa taste. A juggernaut fruity twanginess runs down all the other flavors. Hint of bitterness. Sourish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A bit of a disappointment, I didn’t care for this porter at all. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2007

Pours a transparent mahogany with ruby hues and a spotty-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet, doughy caramel malts with a touch of milk chocolate character. Body starts a little thinner and effervescent with some mild roasty and chocolatey malts before a drier, coffee finish. Finishes smooth and bittersweet with some lingering roasted maltiness.

12oz Bottle dark redish brown topped with a tan head. A nice roast on the nose. Pretty light on the palate not as thick and full as I was looking for. Tast of a little chocolate and coffee. Not bad. jake65 (3626) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle: Pours a deep chestnut brown with a large tan head. Nose is roasty and mocha tones, fairly mild. Flavor is light on the coffee and roast, subtle chocolate and bitters. Call this a porter if you will, but it feels like a brown ale...
