OK, yeah, it is a well made, tasty porter. I've had it before. I just can't for the life of me understand why it is held in such high regard here. Not that there is anything wrong with this beer, it is in fact quite good. But there are countless other examples of this familiar flavor profile that are nowhere close to sniffing Top 50 status. In any case, deep blackish ruby, nice head that faded almost completely. Nose is roasty, coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor is roasty, chocolate, and coffee, with a hint of fruitiness from the hops. Nice beer, exactly like countless others.

Thanks, Ig, for this one! My favorite porter yet...nicely balanced and more complex than other porters (not just the same old coffe, roasted malts, chocolate). I detected a faint bit of licorice?

Pretty good beer. I drank it really fast for some reason; I guess it was too good to wait on. Close to a chocolate stout, but I guess it's a porter. Who knows... Long lasting head. Nice and chocolately with that always present bitterness. Well done, and I believe it would be even better fresh out of the tap.

Very very nice - hard to believe I hadn't tried this one yet. Nice balance of sweetness and chocolately bitterness. Great medium body and deep ruby color. Mmmmm smells like sweet spirit.

I just looked this up under the best category. I've had this in the bottle (not cask) and its a nice chocolate stout, but it aint that great and it aint a porter for gawds sake. Nothing like it - just a soft chocolate stout.

If you want a type specimen for Porter, look no further. Garnet in colour, with a tight creamy head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted grain and caramel. Flavour is same with good Fuggles bittering and a dry bitter finish.

Draught. Thin head, dark body. Nose is slightly sweet and malty. Lacing is very nice and med-high. Medium mouthfeel with a good tongue coating. Taste is of clean roasted hops, toffee, and sligtly spicy. Solid from start to finish.

Pours dark brown, with a thick tan head. Strong coffee, roasted aroma. Coffee, roasted malty, creamy flavor. This beer is excellent. One of my favorites.

(bottle) Black with quickly fading tan head. Aroma of coffee. Flavor initially is coffee with hints of black chocolate. Finish is somewhat smokey and bitter with definite tobacco notes (like an expensive cigar). Excellent.
