Slightly thin and a bit slimey in texture. Good flavor. Not bad.

Very dark brown; aroma of liquorice, prunes, buckwheat honey, burnt raisins - this is macrobrew? Slightly fizzy, but fairly smooth in its dark malt palate - hints of black currant & liquorice, finishing slightly watery. A decent brew today; thirty years ago I would have been making pilgrammages to Pottsville.

O.k I joked about how old this brewery was, and how they should have been able to brew good beer by now...but that was after trying my first beer from this brewery Lord Chesterfield ale. This porter was surprisingly very good. Roasted coffee aroma, moderately carbonated, moderately bitter. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, not watery or thin in the middle, and it finishes dry with a nice coffee/chocolate length.

Lots of body to this brew, kept a nice head even out of the bottle, rich malty flavor, not as dry as I expected, balance was a bit off, but still a good porter

Pinnacle of beers. Closer to a stout, not sweet at all. Easy to drink, a small quantity or a large quantity.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2005 Decent malty aroma, with a bit of coffee and chocolate tempered by some mild carbonic acidity. Dark brown clear, with thin light tan lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Nice roasted malt taste, good sweetness and balancing carbonic acidity. Bit watery overall, but for me has a nice sentimental quality of a dependable dark beer that Ive enjoyed for years. Dusty dry hops in the finish, with a mild sweet tanginess in the after.
