This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Ungstrup (35087) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
A red brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted bread and so is the flavor combined with notes of malt. A fine beer, but nothing special.

Hangover (1120) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Near black pour with just hints of transparecy around the bottom of the glass. Tan head which although small, is lasting. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, cherries and a whiff of hops. Somewhat bitter flavor and pleasant on the palette. Enjoyed it.

DocLock (10091) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2004
I love this bottle, in spite of its color. This one pours dark brown with a big, creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma of coffee, malt, smoke, roastiness, chocolate, and peat. Tastes malty, with coffee, chocolate, smoky, roasty malt, and earthy peat at the finish. The finish is delicious...very smoky, somewhat earthy, with the requisite coffee/chocolate/roasty malt flavors of a good porter. Excellent beer.

freekyp (1980) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Tremendous effort. The head on this brew is impressive, thick and tan, towering far above the rim of the glass. The hop character is evident in the floral aroma. Lightly sweet, but not cloying, with ample earthy bitterness. Bitter coffee with light chocolate notes. Thin enough to be easily drinkable, thick enough to be filling. A old style porter and a well done one at that.

FezMonkey (268) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark brown with very little head. Strong initial chocolate flavor that leaves you with coffee. A very nice beer.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Poured a cola brown color with very little carbonation. A nice combination of roasted malt, coffee, and a little chocolate. Lightly smokey. Finish is mostly coffee. Pretty good, enjoyable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2004
First gotta say this stuff rocked. Full bodied, smoky, great balance of sweet and bitter. All of the good things I like in a porter and my favorite beer from this brewer.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Sour coffee and nice chocolate aroma and a kiss of hops. Very dark translucent red with voluminous tannish green head? I like the smell. Think body, almost sour, like a dark roast coffee. Hoppy finish, very smooth, coffee aftertaste. pretty good, not great.

Braudog (6455) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Classic black beer with tan head. Sour coffee aroma. Similar java, yet sweet, flavors ... almost tart, an odd combination.

frankR (146) - Davis, California, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Black liquid, creamy head that mostly diminishes, little lacing. Flavour is tar and roasted malts, a lot of green bottle character present. Rather undrinkable.
