A strong version of the classic English style ale. A full bodied chocolate and toffee malt flavor dominate this heady brew, with a gentle roastiness rounding out the finish. 40 IBU, 6.5%

On tap. Pours black with nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate, some other dark malt character. Taste is slight sweet, balanced, smooth. Very well done, not in your face style but quite delicious.

obguthr (4905) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Coffee nose. Cola brown, medium tan head. The flavor is fairly sweet coffee with a beechwood finish. Medium body, alcohol not noticeable. Hearty and robust, solid.

Butters (3991) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
At the brewpub served as Original Nitro Porter. Very dark clear brown pour with good creamy tan persistent head. Subtle cocoa and cracker notes and lots of roastiness on the nose. Flavor is surprisingly sweet and with earthy, leather, milky chocolate tones. Big velvety mouthfeel. And despite all those good aspects, I still didn’t care for it all that much. But objectively, it was a pretty good beer.

HopTsing (483) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
From the tap came a dark brown brew with a thick, lucious, nitro, light brown head. Aromas of malt, chocolate, with hints of vanilla. Medium full bodied with flavors of earthy malt, chocolate, hints of vanilla and honey with a earthy hop finish.

Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and some floral hops. Very dark red with a fully lasting, tan head. Some sweet, chocolatey, toffee-like, nutty flavors, and earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with low carbonation, and lingering chocolatey flavors after the finish.

Draft at the brewpub on 1/19/2013. Poured a dark color, black with some dark notes around the edges. Aroma was some chocolate with some light coffee notes. Some mild bitter character, though plenty of sweet. Pretty enjoyable.

tia (1433) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Radio. Very dark with creamy tan head and lots of lacing. Smells like chocolat and roasted coffee beans, and maybe a hint of cherry. Tastes chocolaty with some dry hip at the end. Light creamy mouth feel and dry finish.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12

Aroma: the nose has lots of roasted malts, some dark chocolate, and caramel as well
Appearance: This beer has a dark brown pour with a small head and basically no lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty toasty as well, it is a little sweet, and has a mild bitterness
Palate: This one has a smooth feel, medium bodied, and it finishes soft and creamy
Overall Impression:  Really solid example of a porter. It seemed to be rather popular amongst our group, and I was no exception, I really enjoyed it.
