11th October 2008. GABF. The honey is Colorado wild flower honey. Hazy dark brown beer with a definite floral note from the honey. Chocolate and and other interesting things that are hard to pin down. Dry palate. A bit different. Theydon_Bois (19490) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 26/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to a pond.
Nose is brown sugars, earthy cocoa, honey roast nuts, milk chocolate.
Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light metallic, dark toffee fudge, brown sugar, rather on the thin side and a step down from the aroma.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little watery, dry light roast tones in the finish.
So so porter lacking any real depth of flavour. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2011 Honey and copious amounts of cocoa dominate the palate. Chocolate malt nose. Very interesting. Rated 10/10/09

Sodium ethanoate aroma, some potato starch. What I’m trying to say is "salt and vinegar crisps". Taste is sweet liquid toffee, very bland. Slickish palate, a bit flat and dead. No porter detected, not sure there’s much beer at all. Poor brew.
Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is Hershey’s cocoa. Like when I sniffed the old containers. Whoa! Yogi Berra thing. Med body. Mild carb. Flavor is dusty cocoa over some some smooth burnt malt. More dry than not in the finish. Unique. Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2006
Bottle poured a clear dark brown with red highlights and small diminishing amber head. Aromas of cocoa, coffee and a hint of smoke. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, a hint of coffee, roastiness and light smoke with a lingering finish. djd07 (14469) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium frothy beige head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong cocoa and chocolate roast. Thin mouthfeel with a light roast and vanilla with watery finish. Aroma was promising but not much going on with this one. Tmoney99 (14457) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured a black color with a small rocky off-white head that was mostly diminishing with minimal lacing. Light sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with medium sweet finish of short duration.
