22oz pour - As the label suggest, I would call this a lactose porter. Much of this is dairy with some complimentary dry characteristics. Good everyday type porter that is easy drinking.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a dark cola with a tan head. Toasted nut nose. Flavors of licorice and a hint of tart cherry. Medium bodied. High carbonation. Bitter roast finish.

cathcacr (634) - Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2014
aroma faint with slightly/barely smoky accent, decent foam retention after initial pour, flavor is above average for beer though rather bare-minimum for a porter, palate also bare-minimum. might work as a gateway beer to transition the swill-drinkers toward the hard-n-heavy stuff.

This is a very decent porter. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate, dark character, and a thickish palate.

Cantabrian (782) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle, from a Utah State Liquor Store. I’m a big fan of the Galloway breed, but I think the picture on the label, - with the white lost on the horizon and no black hindlegs to lock it - does not do justice to its uniqueness. And neither does the beer, unfortunately. I wanted it to be extraordinary, but I got no more than a feeble aroma and a faint flavour of roasted malts, with some nutiness and ashes, and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. The beer feels rather watery. And that should not be a reason to have it only in large bottles. I’d love to come back in a few years and re-try a much improved beer.

BVery (5979) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour with a frothy tight tan head. Aroma is roasty, but also something akin to lemon cleaner (but mild). Medium to slightly light palate. Decent, but not great.

ajnepple (1998) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013
22 oz bottle shared with a friend. The aroma and flavor is roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Medium body with a soft creamy feel and a smooth finish.

Gription79 (2236) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This has been in the cellar for several months. Pours with a dense tan head and huge cocoa aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, soft stone fruit. A nice, easy drinking porter.

pours like a cola with a root beer head - aroma of molasses and slight butter - roasted malts in the flavor profile with brown sugar.
