COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Smoked Porter is a robust London style porter with a deep chocolate/ruby color and the subtle accent of hardwood smoked malt. This distinctive beer is brewed using no less than seven different varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in a complex and full bodied beer characterized by hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel and beechwood smoke. The big malty finish to this beer is balanced by a solid hop bitterness and the refined English aroma and flavor of premium Goldings finishing hops.

On Tap @ Arcadia -- Appearance is Dark Brown/Maroon. It starst with an initial aroma of Dark Fruit such as plums with notes of roasted coffee. This flavor carries into the first few sips as well. Intense Chocolate Malt and Molassas, and Caramel. As you drink it though, it gets a little syrupy and medicinal, towards the end it was getting like cola. Overall, it was good, but Id prefer a stout.

I found this porter to be thin in body and somewhat sharp and metallic in taste. For from the sweet, rich taste I expect from a porter.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the aroma. A beautiful brown head held steady for a few minutes atop the deep brown ale. Its taste is a hint of sweetness followed by medium bitterness, but not too bitter to upset the balance. Well bodied for an English Porter, the texture is slick, carbonation is average, and finish is long. London Porter is well done, and worth a try if you can find it.

Pours dark brown with a very thin tan head. The aroma was a little faint with hints of malt, coffee, and cocoa. Flavor was rich of chocolate, malt, fruit, smoke and coffee. A good porter but, it just didnt seem very well balanced. Maybe if you lay it down for a year, it would be smoother.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Light fluffy clouds of head top this dark beer mountain. Trudging through a thick forests of coffee, cocoa & malt an unexpected (&unplanned?)magic jumps from behind the trees, offering a sour treat. Despite the smoke (&\mirrorsrorrim/&), the alcohol sticks out like a giraffe hiding behind some shrubbery... -... A bit bitter on the decent.

Poured a reddish-brown from the bottle with light head. Dark malt, chocolate aroma. Other than that, I was pretty unimpressed. Not much distinctiveness in the way of flavor, and left a bad taste afterwards. It seemed pretty watered-down too. Not much substance.

On tap at the brew pub. Dark brown/ black. Smells of roasted coffee and chocolate. Rich mocha flavor. This is a delicious beer.

Very deep color with a light brown creamy head. Id expect a bit more aroma - light dark malt and some background smokiness; no hop. Immense chocolate flavor immediately followed by alot of alcohol and a distinct Fuggles flavor. Complex and full bodied with a warming character. Very nice!
