A little disappointed in this beer from victory. Well crafted but not tons in the flavor department. Doesn’t hold a candle to fullers or great lakes. TAR (2760) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2004 Cask; gravity: Firm-bodied a,d failry grainy. Notably hoppy throughout laden with bitter coffee and roasted malts in the finish. Simplistic. fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2002
Slight coffee notes in the malt, but a little bland for the style. Easy-drinking but lacking in the flavor department. maija (8) - USA - FEB 18, 2002 does not count
A little too sweet. Could use more hop bitterness. fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2001
hints of coffee, roasty and toasty, a fine effort.

Nice roasted flavor. VERY drinkable. Good session beer. This beer is packed with flavor, but not too heavy. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2000
Porters and stouts along with the seasonal bocks and fest beers are my most favorite styles. So I seek them out, this is a very could porter with a rich roasted malt aroma and has that semi-sweet slightly dry finish that I crave. Decent hops add a good balnce to the roasted grains.
