4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2010 "We were somwhere around Salisbury on the edge of Connecticut when the alcohol began to take hold."
A delicious porter here. Strong and rich, the brew is dark with a thick, creamy head. Very malty. Some coffee flavor. Nice and heavy.
Update: I’ve now, two years later, had about ever version of this beer possible, including bottle, draught (normal), cask, and last night nitro. Each time no let-downs. FD has definitely done some good here.

Bottle 12 oz. Black color with a large light brown head that diminished slowly. Full complex aroma of roasted malt, smoky with alcohol . Full body with a creamy texture. Full malt, toffee and coffee with a long finish with a hoppy bitter bite. Clearly a Flying Dog version of a porter.

Bottled, 355ml from Tesco, Banbury. Black with tan head. Smoky fruity aroma leading to a rich, smooth beer, good deeply roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee hints, the fruitiness has a blackcurrant hint, lots of depth and surprisingly easy drinking. Very enjoyable.
