Dark ,dark mohagany brew with the rich roasted aromas from the malts catching my attention right away.Chocolate and fresh roasted coffee are right there on the tongue,I had this in London and didnít rate it then but it is just as good now.Nice lingering aftertaste and good body.

Black-brown. Head lasts 30 seconds. Chocolate raspberry grains. Winner! Coffee chocolate tart finish. Iíll try this again soon. Iím thoroughly impressed with the (accidental?) tart fruitiness.

Dark and oily looking. Minimal head. Nice looking beer. Coffee aromas. Smooth and creamy palate. Nice coffee toffee tobacco roasted sweet flavors. Smooth English malts. Nice on the palate, not too thick not too thin. Very reasonably priced.

zach8270 (3863) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [18.6 oz. bottle] Dark brown pour with red highlights and a light brown head. Very malty and toasty coffee aroma with hints of toffee, caramel and brown sugar. The taste begins with a nice coffee flavor that gives way to a sweet middle and a roasty malt finish that leaves a little bitter flavor in your mouth. Very smooth feeling.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Pours a dark brown color with a red tint and a thick and creamy off white head. Cereal like aroma of malts with hints of toffee and roasted coffee. Very smooth body, little carbonation and a strong coffee flavor with bits of roasted malt and a nice underlying hoppiness in the finish. A bit thin of a body...but a better than average porter.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Pours black with thin dissipating head. Aroma is very sweet with lots and lots of carmel. Flavor is mostly of roasted malt. Finish is clean. Nice medium body. Smooth. No bitterness. Quite disappointing. Read SilkTorkís rating and youíll understand exactly what I mean.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Black color (only with direct light does a hint of ruby redness shine through) with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, with coffee, figs, oak, vanilla. Flavor is Malty, slightly sweet, chocolately, faint coffee notes. I admit that I am not usually a porter fan, but this is nice.

This is more of what british porters should taste like. A true benchmark brew.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2005
Pours a deep, dark reddish brown with virtually no head. Aroma of coffee and malt. Flavour is an explosion of complexity, coffee, roasted malts and general yumminess. Palate is faultless, smooth and rich. The archetypal porter.

Dark brown color, creamy head, slightly smoky and browny. In fact, this is all brown here. Cream and chocolate palate on a low carbonation and a slightly thin and grainy aftertaste. O.K. porter to me!
