Dry roasted/coffee malt aroma with slight pit fruit esters. Cocoa, dry/burnt coffee, and slight tart finish. A very good porter.

Notes from 3-12-2010 beer rating: The aroma was rich, strong smell of alcohol and hint of smoke. Dark color, with clean appearance. Poured well with good head. Clean, crisp taste with nothing lingering. Very good drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Uncle JiM, abandoned as he did not enjoy. Pours a reddish brown with nice garnet highlights and a tannish head. No real lacing apparent. Aroma has lots of roastiness, some smoke, some peat with some fruit hints. Taste is of smoky meat juice, with roast, some caramel and peat. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with smoke. Finishes a bit salty with sweetness underneath. Baltic-y more than imperial, imo.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice dark color with an off-tan head that doesn’t last very long. Aroma is nice and toasted with some smokey notes with hints of molasses there might be some underlying molasses. Flavor is bittersweet that lasts a decent while and finishes more sweet. There are some smokey flavors with notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel is full while carbonation average overall. This is a great beer I would definitely have again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very dark ruby pour. Fizzy foamy head. Unexpected full body - especially for a Porter. Burnt wood. Charcoal. Some smoke. Very burnt sugar. Black pepper. Creamy and dark. Strong malts. Super smooth. Not overly complex but much better than expected.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours a very dark brown with a hint of red, and there is also a slight off-white head; furthermore, the aroma is subtle, but there are definite hints of basement aromas, nuts, dough, and chocolate. This beer is slightly sweet and slightly umami, and the palate is nice and thick with a flat carbonation and a slight astringent aftertaste.

A solid London style porter. Good malt body with very heavy toasty malts. Bit much aroma or head.

Bottle. Not sure why this porter is smoked - not typical of British porter. At least not in this century. Good but overwrought.
