My favorite porter, by far, and one of my favorite beers of any style. Wonderful coffee- like taste, perfectly balanced. There is no better tasting beer that I can think of. Medium body, not as thin as many other porters. Sometimes hard to find fresh around here, but when I do, it's a joy to behold.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
DraftAlmost black pour with a minimal head. Kind of thin mouthfeel and not enough hoppiness to be a good porter. Sweet, sticky and chocolate all the way around. Nice lacing.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2009 Wow, this was incredible. Aromas of chocolate and coffee from beginning to end. Head was a thick cocoa pillow of goodness. Flavours the same, with dark chocolate and espresso, with a bit of vanilla bean. Very creamy and smooth in the mouth. Body was an attractive dark brown. Go out and try this one!

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 (Bottled) Very dark reddish brown with a large, beige and foamy head. Quite strong, a bit earthy aroma of roasted malt, lots of coffee, salty licorice and hints of smoke. Burned-roasted-malty flavor with smooth dark coffee, and a sweetish-malty breeze in the middle. The finish is roasted and slightly ashy with medium bitterness. Very smooth, medium to full-bodied palate with soft carbonation. Definitely one of the best British brews. Truly excels in achieving a perfect balance between sweet maltiness and ashy burnedness, while being low-ABV and enough earthy-licoricey to be interesting flavorwise.

Nice coffee and dark chocolate flavor. Frothy head, a very good porter, but I still prefers Stone's.

FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
This beer is really, really fabulous. Aroma has a strong coffee smell, with hints of cocoa and caramel. This is a fine example of an excellent Porter.

Dark with a reddish hue, coffee sweet aroma. Creamy, smooth feel with coffee flavors, perhaps a hint of chocolate.

Bottle: This beer kicks serious Ass! i'm kicking myself for passing on it so many times in the past. full bodied, creamy, bitter-sweet. In a word-exceptional.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
Bottle - Poured a deep black brew with a nice head but lack some retention. Carbonation is average with a medium body (I was expecting a richer and ''fuller'' body). Aroma of chocolate is very subtle. Taste is a mix of roastiness, chocolate, and coffee with just enough bitterness at the end. Overall, this is a good beer but I still believe it might be a bit overrated.
