Bottle poured into a nonick pint. Pours a deep, dark brown with a hint of ruby and a cream colored head. Nice lacing. Milk and dark chocolate with a hint of roasted coffee to the nose. Very roasty at first with some cream and vanilla. A little hoppy on a mostly dry and malty finish. Creamy and smooth palate with just a bit of carbonation. Excellent. Just a great porter. Really drinkable and I?ll be back for more!

This is a very solid porter! 12 oz variety pack. Pitch black pour with a beautiful tan head. The head laced around the inside of the glass very nicely. The nose was deep and balanced with notes of chocolate, vanilla, cream, roasted malts and some light flowery hops. The body and balance of flavors were spot on. This is one smooth and drinkable porter! The mouthfeel was silky and smooth and the flavors were extremely delicious. I tasted flavors of chocolate, cream, vanilla, roasted malt, light caramel, smoke and slight hoppiness. I haven’t had a porter this good in a long time!

Smooth, no aftertaste, aroma too understated, not nutty enough, a little too much hops for me.

12 Oz bottle poured. Part of my new year ratebeer resolution is to go back and rate all the beers I had a bunch before my rating days and give them the reviews they deserve. Especially the great ones. I have loved this beer for so long, it’s time I make it official. Dark brown pour with a thin fizz head. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor is mild milk chocolate, roasted malt and a mild nutty finish. Something about this beer. It’s a long time favorite of mine, and has to be one of the most refreshing porters around. Love this beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Deep brownish-amber with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, dried fruits, chocolate and some coffee. Sweetish flavor with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and dried fruits, spicy, a bit salty. Medium to full-bodied, smooth texture.
