I bought this in a 12 oz "single" usual brown long necked bottle of Full Sail..but an unusual modern simpler label which i liked. The appearance of this beer is aof a dark treacle..almost black cold coffee..very small head which does leave a slight lace down the glass. Smell was not the greatest I have smelt in a porter..i found it a bit metallic. Taste was very nice..after being dissapointed by the smell i was surprised the tase was nice a little bitter but not too much...nice sweet toffee after taste. G sn good on the mouth could use a little less carbonation (IMO). Over all a nice Porter but nothing like Taddy!!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Pours black with a coffee colored head and nice lacing. Aromas of caramel, toffee, chocolate, roast malts, and floral hops. Flavor is much the same with a bit more of the roast malts coming out blended with chocolate and coffee, and those mt hood hops are showing up making a pretty decent balance. Slightly thin body, dry palate, and a nice bitter finish.

Tap at the brewery. Nice deep brown color. Tan head with some lacing. Pleasant nutty and chocolate flavor. Medium bodied. Hops are perceptible in the finish. Decent.

I swear they are trying to bring back the imperial porter in this beer. A very strong and robust porter, with a huge taste. I could drink a lot of this and not get bored. Thanks Full Sail!

Dark brown with a small tan head. Arome was espresso and some caramel. Flavour starts full, with coffee and caramel sweetness and only gets a touch of hop bittterness on the finish.

Draught: Nutty brown color with a light brown head. Aroma has a hint of coffee and some bitter nutty malts. Thin palate and a strange lactic sourness. The least of the offerings on tap at the Full Sail tasting room.

TChrome (1409) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Beer pours dark brown with a well retained beige colored head and some light lacing. Aroma is really too underwhelming. Very modest notes of chocolate and coffee and a little dust. Flavor improves upon the aroma rather significantly. Nice cold coffee flavor with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2003 Really nice porter. Aroma of hops, and caramel malt. Flavor mostly roasted malts, slight sweet which is perfect with the mix. Nice porter! Cheers beerguy&baobubba.
