In 17th century Britain beer was the drink of the common man. Wine was for the wealthy, tea was for the weak and water was usually quite poisonous. Men, women and children drank beer morning, noon and night. The most popular type of beer was porter because of its modest price and its nutritional value. One of the most popular porter brewers, and often incorrectly credited with the invention of the beer, was Ralph Harwood. This beer is inspired by the brown porter made at the time. TASTING NOTES Enters the glass with a deep mahogany with a small tan head. The nose quickly fills toffee and sweet chocolate. Smooth in flavour and with a big mouth feel without significant bitterness from the hops. Ends full, creamy and lush. FOOD PAIRING Should be paired with food as it could have been served at Harwoods time. A steak- and kidney pie should work well or for the slightly more modern touch serve it with a porter house steak smothered in a wild mushroom and oyster gravy.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2016
(Bottle) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, roasted nose with caramel, chocolate, dark rye bread, a touch of coffee and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, a touch of liquorice, black rye bread and a balanced roasty bitterness in a fairly dry finish. Medium body, with just a touch of sweetness. Solid and well made porter. Very nice.

Bottle. Black with latte coloured head. Rich chocolate aromas, followed by coffee and vanilla. Immediate presence of alcohol, then chocolate, coffee, vanilla and enjoyable bitterness. Smooth palate and a dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16.9 oz bottle. Dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Nose is coffee and cocoa with hints of wood and prune. Smooth medium body with a tingle. Taste is mocha, licorice, fig and faint orange peel. Classic porter deftly executed.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
A strong smell of toffee, chocolate, some liquorice, a soft touch of roasted malt. The beige large foamy head has a long duration, the body is black. The taste of chocolate, toffee, malty but not sweet. You can nearly chew the beer. A rather heavy body, very creamy with a rather soft carbonation.

In short: warming roasty dark ale.
Pours very dark, almost black, with some garnet reflections. Massive brown head, long lasting, with some lacing. Roasty, sherry-like nose, some coffe and licorice. Medium to full bodied, average carbonation, some viscous texture. Taste is quite roasty, coffee, some cacao, licorice, raisins. Vinous character detected in aroma but not in flavour. Warm alcoholic finish, alcohol noticeable but well integrated. Some dry and bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Savagesteeler (133) - Warszaw, POLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Aromat, głównie toffi, lekkie nuty czekoladowo rumowe. Barwa czarna, klarowna, piękna beżowa obfita piana. W smaku od razu uderza moc tego piwa, alkoholowe, ale dobrze wkomponowane w całość, potem dosc spora goryczka, paloność. W tle uwydatniają sie nuty rumowe. Podsumowujać jest to świetne piwo, bardzo treściwe, pełne, złożone. Do końca pozostawia z takimi samymi wrażeniami jak po pierwszyn łyku, zdecydowanie polecam

Pinball (11940) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2015
Tap at fermentoren pith dark smooth white head. Aroma is roasted malty with bitter malty notes . also licorice. Flavor is roasted malts and a little wood and licorice. Thick mouthful and very complex , notes of figs and Italian chocolate ice cream. It reminds me flavor wise of a slightly less brutal version of nørrebro seven which is one of my all time favorites.
