1PT. 6oz Bottle. Pours black with minimal frothiness. Hints of chocolate, coffee and....cereal? Bitterness is medium and lightly sour. Taste is very lively and the finish long and tasty. Very Good...highly recommend. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Gracious…what are you folks drinking? Pours a light black in color with a big and fluffy, off-white head. HUGE aroma of bittersweet chocolate and charred malts. Dusty mouthfeel, nicely hopped, with a rich sense of chocolate and burnt malts. Really nice. AcctError160898 (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Aroma is coffee, dark dried fruit and a hint of chocolate. A dark brown pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is rich! Chocolate, coffee, sweet malts, a hint of dark fruit. Medium-to-full bodied and minimal carbonation. Overall, this is a a wondrously rich tasty Porter. Want to have again. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Superbly nice, particularly given the low ABV. Smooth. Roasty, and dry. Very flavorful -- getting a lot of coffee notes. TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2002
Malted milk balls, roastiness, cardboard, underlying coffee, caramel, perfumey hops, and cocoa in this above average Porter aroma. Overall, very clean. Heavy carbonation is rather aggressive, before rich chocolate, acidity, oxidation, licorice, herbs, and fruit appear. An aftertaste of charred molasses?, which is nice, adds another tasty dimension to this fine robust porter. The foam is creamy and persistent but nothing too impressive. The finish is rather dry with bitter chocolate (turns salty at room temp). Gets much more delicious at room temp. This is a fresh porter, but I wouldn't purchase again. It is, however, very drinkable.

(bottle - 22 oz) To begin with, a big thank you to jah noth for splitting this bottle with me. Black pour with a big mound of tan foam. Very rich aroma of burnt and roasted malts mixed with some chocolate and some hops. Smooth chocolate flavor with a lot of roasted malt hints and a nice hop balance to polish off the flavor. Very creamy. Thanks for sharing this one Dan. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bomber. Pours just about jet black (even in a skinny glass) with a fairly well unmanageably large tannish/pumpkin head. Not much lace, but gorgeous to look at. Big licorice and toast on the nose. Creamy attack, though it’s a medium body with light carb. Delicious chocolate and toffee mid-palate, with a little roast and hop bitterness in the finish. Outstanding example of a porter. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose has a fair amount of roasting and just a hint of unsweetened chocolate in there. Taste is light and smooth, with a little coffee bitterness coming through, and a bitter chocolate finish to it. Nice porter. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2007
Thank you Tom/Afer4ever for this nice surprise. It’s black with a huge, light brown and creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice and chocolate. The flavour is smooth, full and has nice notes of coffee, chocolate, very light sweetness and a nice bitterness. It’s a nice beer with a really nice balance and lots of flavour even if the ABV isn’t high - and I like that! 2240

A deep dark brown color. Great aroma with chcolate, and toffee and roasted malts. Great flavor and a deep richness that was awesome. This Beer Rocked.
