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.

caesar (6942) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2004
Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, some licorice. Taste is smooth malty. Not quite strong, but nice.

Dark appearance, small head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts. Flavour lacks some complexity, but is fairly enjoyable. Nice brew.

trubman (2) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2004 does not count
Nice roasted aroma, unfortunatley, no real head to go with it. I enjoyed the creamy texture and mild roasted flavor. The bottle is very cool. A nice smooth brew...would definitely try again

Ok porter. I was expecting more flavor. Malt, roasty taste, coffee and a bit bitter.

Frank (4121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Malty and slightly roasty. Medium to light bodied with a notable lack of carbonation. Quite a tasty porter.

Ungstrup (36217) - 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 (1129) - oxford, Georgia, 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 (10346) - 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 (2085) - 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.

Dark brown with very little head. Strong initial chocolate flavor that leaves you with coffee. A very nice beer.
