Very dark red (almost black) . This beer is like a liquid dessert; immediate chocolate flavor that evolves into a malty finish. Heavy but smooth. A great beer to finish off the night. Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Chocolate malt aroma and a rich tan head begin the experience. True to its claim, it's medium bodied and very chocolatey... and CREAMY! The finish is one of continuing chocolate maltiness. Delicious. splink48 (35) - Fayetteville, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2004
The first thing I noticed when I poured this beer was how dark it actually was. The beer was a very dark brown with a very small head. The chocolate malt is very evident in the finish. Its also very smooth on the palate. bkpimpva (5) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2005 does not count
I love the porter. Sweetwater has a great collection of labels as well. I wish this company still had its beers in Charlottesville. AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2006
What the hell is an American Porter? Looks perfect, tan head, black as it should be, aroma is all chocolate, flavor is totally porter, chocolate, a little roasty, with barely sufficient hop bitterness to balance it out. Awesome beer.

Dark dark brown with tan head. Aroma is sweet roast coffee. Taste is malty, roast coffee and dark chocolate. Very good mporritt (16) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Chocolate and roasted malt. Toasty caramel with nice rounded yeast esters. Super delicious. My favorite beer from sweetwater. This was a 2012 bottle. I believe they don't bottle this anymore. ph0tik (92) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Really enjoyed this beer from Sweetwater. Dark color and light head. Just a hint of chocolate flavor and crisp aftertaste. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that subsides to a thin film. No lacing left behind during this session.jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Aroma: Chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla bean and herbal hops.
Taste: Bitter roast, herbal spicy hop, semi sweet chocolate, cocoa, sour cherry and ash.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, prickly carbonation.
Overall: An above average, complex tasty porter.
Loved this porter. Bottle. Notes of coffee, cocoa, molasses and some dark fruits. Nice malt/hop balance.
