A good Porter, though nothing special. Little chocolate taste, typical color. Not bad, but not great. jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Clear dark ruby leaning to brown. Small tan head that vanishes quickly. Light roasted malt aroma and ... that is it. The flavor is a tad more exciting, though only a tad. Roasted malt cocoa and some coffee. Body is thinnish though not overly so. Forgettable. Now what was I saying? daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Pours a deep brown color, seems slightly watery but forms a nice head. Aroma is roasty and sweet. Flavor has some sweet burnt malt tones but is rather ordinary. Washes off the palate quickly with not much of a finish. Beaver (1789) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a big fluffy tan head that retains well.Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 8, 2006
The aroma is roasted chocolate and coffee with some sweet cream and a little bit of dark fruits.
The flavor is bitter roasted chocolate with a big chalky metallic/acidic taste and a finish that is much more bitter (and metallic) than I expected. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.
Overall, the flavor just didn’t jibe with me - too metallic and bitter causing it to be unbalanced and not very appealing.
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is of chocolate and some pepper. Pretty bland.

Decent porter. Very smooth with spices that arent very reminiscent of traditional chocolates and cofees. Very smooth and good. mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Poured a dark black with a slight ruby hue. There was a small tan head which dissipated quickly and left no lacing. It smelled like malt and chocolate with more of the same in the taste, with some added hoppy bitterness in the finish. Just an average porter in my opinion. I would drink it again, however I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it. thehurt01 (262) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 16, 2007
A 12 oz bottle with a notch system on the side for freshness by. the beer poured a soda brown with a big light brown head. the smell of a good malt and hops mix. The taste was bit more bitter then the smell and a slight sour aftertaste. Good lacing and carbonation. jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 17, 2007
12 oz bottle. Body is dark. Aroma is standard porter...roasty. Taste is roasted malt....maybe some chocolate malts. Nothing special, except for the ownage label-picture of the man carrying a barrel of beer on his back. DalzAle (2036) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Dark black pour with a quickly dissipating white head. Couldnt really notice any aroma. Flavor malt and burnt toffee that seemed to linger afterwards. An ok beer, but nothing more.
