feel like i’ve had this a million times and just not getting to rate it. good roasty malt character. a little on the bittersweet and hoppy side of things but that adds a little more excitement to what you usually get in a porter these days. well made beer. single from total wine.

From a six pack. Pours a dark black body and a thick light brown head. Aroma is of espresso, chocolate and malted barley. Taste is of malt and cocoa. Mouthfeel is between a porter and a stout.

Dark, dark fruits followed by some bitter chocolate. Like a dry Fruits of the Forest Gateaux. A ludicrously luscious porter. Smooth as a snooker ball & black as a moonless night.

Tap at the Brewhouse, Sheffield. Clear, chestnut brown. Thin, tan head. Can’t imagine I can add anything that’s not already been said. A lovely porter. Smooth. Fruity. Dry. Good stuff

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Famous American porter with deeply beige (almost brown) foam, thick and creamy, and a near to black colour with a copperish hue. Rich malty aroma, chocolatey and caramel-like with lots of dark fruits and appetising spicy notes; taste likewise, a deep, soft, mellow, almost buttery dark maltiness, caramel and chocolate, dark fruits, finish toasted bitterness with an oily, vinous mouthfeel - or should I say, throatfeel. Absolutely delicious, a pity it’s hard to get in Western Europe, otherwise I’d have this every week.

Very dark brown with stable, beige head. Aroma has chocolate and caramel, roasted malt also. Flavour has brown sugar and discrete, vinous alcohol. Good one.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 drank it @ Eldorado in Zurich. nice dark brown colour. texture of a stout but sweeter. drink cool, but not cold (10-12°C) hints of chocolate, rasted malts and caramel. "buttery" and long finish. not watery at all, just very nice.

Deep brown beer with some ruby high lights.
A large foamy head that’s a nice taupe color and very dense.
A rich roasted malt aroma.
Complex roasted malt taste that has hints of chocolate and espresso followed up with a nice jolt of hop bitterness.
A nice rich mouthfeel with a dry finish smooth .
