bottle; red/black appearance with nice brown head, that fades into a thin layer. Nose is sour with some orast. Flavor is complex with some acid and licorice. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. I would love to taste this baby on cask! SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 17, 2005
This has to be the first porter i have actually noticed to be so easily seen through. A weak aroma but raisins over power everything else. Slightly bitter flavor of chocolate and black licorice. Not impressing for a porter at all. Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2005
From a bottle.Almost black in colour,small head,chocolate and burnt coffee flavours,another poor effort. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2005
01.06.05 Kooky amber/olive oval shapped 500ml bottle. Ruby-black pour is glowing and beautiful beneath a wispy and thin head. Pretty standard porterly aromas of coffee, chocolate, roasty malt. Heavy handed chocolate tries to unset the balance throughout. Mild and sweet, lightly sour, lots of roasty chocolate. Somewhat unctuous body that finishes with goodly bitterness. Surprisingly good, but not outstanding. steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Pours dark brown with slight tan head. Nose is of roasted malt and mild coffee. Flavor is chocolate, sweet and malty. Dry bitterness as it finishes.

Bottle. A very nice coffee malt aroma. Reddish brown color - clear with little head. A strong coffee malt flavor throughout - mildly bitter. Nice full body. Very enjoyable. brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - DEC 16, 2004
The unusual "cough medicine" style bottle got my attention, and seemed interesting. Poured like cola with no head to speak of. I know this is gonna sound strange but it kind of smells freezer burned. Pretty odd indeed. Not much aroma perhaps some coffee and fruit. Sour milk, coffee, burnt toast, and green flavors. Slightly bitter and acidic in the finish. You could consider it complex in a odd sort of way. This is going to stay in the tried it once catagory. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 This looked a little watery when I poured it and didn’t have a very substantial head. The color is a darkish brown. The aroma is deep malts. The flavor is somewhat nutty and chocolatey, not bad, but with a flat mouthfeel. Not bad, but this GREEN bottled beer’s keeping is somewhat suspect. I’ll try this again on a later date.rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2004

Bottle (1 pt. 0.9 fl oz.) Dark reddish brown with a hint of ruby when held in direct light; decent-sized tan head that leaves substantial lacing. Really nice chocolatey aroma. Well-balanced; a little on the malty side, but pretty hoppy for a porter. Chocolate and roasted notes in the flavor. Not bad. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2004
opaque brownish black. Didnt get much head. Rich roasted coffe aroma. Very smooth beer with a creamy mouthfeel. Roasted coffee and sweet flavor. An OK stout, just a fairly simple flavor. Enjoyable and drinkable.
