Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine April 2007.

Label shows a dog looking at three pairs of legs in heels and reads: "So many legs ... So little time!" Holy 1980's. Seems like it should come with ZZ Top theme music. There's also mention of winning medals at the World Beer Cup, but, as always, the proof is in how it tastes.

Deep and dark brown in color, and so opaque it might as well sit black in the glass. The head is a creamy, tight, milky-coffee-colored lace that collects in a ring. Big aroma of baker's chocolate and cookie dough, paired with a whiff of milk. Smooth on the palate with a round milky feel, and a bit grainy beneath. Tight carbonation, lively. Big, highly roasted grain notes, with an acrid bite and some smoky tanginess. Unsweetened chocolate, coffee grinds and cold black coffee follow, with just a touch of sugary lacto-sweetness that helps to offset the roasted characters. Suggestions of burnt raisins. Hops are thin. Lurking within the acridness is a kiss of herbal. Finish is powdery; dry with a lingering semi-burnt toast flavor.

A well-brewed Porter that's just shy of being as robust as we'd like, but it's got balance. You could definitely have a session of these and not lose interest, but allow this one to warm before drinking so you can pick up all of its nuances. Try pitting it against some grilled pork chops, blackened fish or a sweet chocolate dessert.

4.14/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

appearance- It's a rich dark brown with a half finger head that quickly goes away

smell- the smell is a refreshing mocha-coffee smell. It smells very sweet and bourbon like.

taste- you get a lot of mocha flavor in this beer. maybe a little bit of a sweet bourbon taste which i really like. The finish is a drier coffee taste which lingers for a while on the tongue and cheeks and leaves the mouth dry. I am not of fan of beer that finish in this way nor am I a fan of the way this one finished however, I am a fan of this beer.

Mouth feel is very wet and smooth. not creamy at all. this is quite a lot of carbonation, almost too much for a porter I think. I'd prefer a little less carbonation when I'm drinking a porter or stout.

Overall- This is a good beer to sit down with and have with a dinner. I might buy this beer again. definitely not a session beer. I do like this though but for some reason this beer is a little harder for me to judge.
