Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VIII:

A few shades away from black, with deep ruby highlights. Towering, light brown head, the large amount of sticky lacing shows how great the retention really is. Thick aromas of brown sugar, rum-soaked raisins and brown bread. Creamy and slick on the palate with a full body. Light on the carbonation. Quick sting of alcohol with a breath of a solvent-like character. Creamy sweetness from the malt of dark bread and a hint of chocolate. Then the maltiness gets a little complex with carob powder, toasted bread and brown sugar. Modest hopping here with a bitterness that doesn't even rise above the malt. Alcohol is slightly warming with a dried plum fruitiness that feigns a sweeter finish, which actually turns semi-dry.

While this might be a cult classic from Europe, the bar has been raised by American craft brewers, so what was awesome years ago is just plain good today. A sipping Porter, better to pair with than drink on its own.

Definitely needs to sampled out of bottle. In bottle has the taste of cap ( metal ). Loved this beer from first , 5 years ago. Great flavor that reminds me of Guinness Stout only sweeter. Like Guinness has a thick head when poured carefully in the glass. Has become very difficult to find in Peoria area.

Light tan head, about a finger in my pint glass.

Dark, but not as dark as some.

Robust coffee, and a bit boozy to boot. It’s like a caramel rum kind of thing. Interesting at least.

Very crisp drinkability. Caramel is there, but the booze is easier than the smell made me think. Bitter but very balanced. Sticky.

It’s a really good porter.
