Well what can I say this porter is damn good, not quite as flavorful as MacTarnahans Bourban Cask BlackWatch porter but still really good, this will probabvly end up being my second highest rated Porter. Creamy Beige head and thick lacing. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Smooth and rich taste in mouth, lots of coffee and chocolate flavor, excellent.

Black with a creamy head. Smelled a bit like coffee. Tasted a bit like coffee and chocolate. Nice, smooth and very filling. iíll drink this again.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2004
This poured almost black into the glass with a healthy brown head. Nice burnt chocolate aroma. Very creamy in the mouth with chocolate and caramel tastes, rosted malts with a hint of smokiness. It leaves a good feeling in the mouth. This is what porters should be.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2006 Bottle at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Finally I get to sample this legend which has returned to English shores. Nice dark brown/black, with a creamy beige head, and pleasant choc aroma. Toasty flavour: mild roasted oats and choc. Lightish, very drinkable, very smooth, but didnít blow my head off. Drinkable and tasty - very pleasant, but I must admit I was expecting the earth. Iíll try again (while I still can). RE-RATE - Iíve had this manytimes since, and it is a real quality beer. Much better than nearly all other Porters Iíve ever supped, and one of the most reliable ífall back optioní beers ever.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 Pours a very dark mahogany with a modest sized light tan head. Smells big and robust. Smells smoky and dry with chocolate malts and sweet toffee. This is one BIG porter! Rich and full bodied! Seems to be lacking a bit of complexity up front on the palate but makes up for it on the mid-palate and the finish. Cocoa, chocolate, coffee, toffee and light fruits.

One of the better beers Iíve sampled. Not my favorite, but Iíd drink it again. Very full flavored with ample complexity. Plenty of roastiness which I like.

jefcon (1592) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Black and stark in the glass, but looks somewhat watery. Ample roasted malt notes, lots of chocolate on the nose. Tons of flavor of the same, with a hint of chicory and tea. Smooth and long on the palate. A benchmark for porter.

Coffee! Thatís what took me so long to think of. It reminded me of coffee by the smell of it, taste too. Nice and smooth. A very professional porter. Well put together with a mild after taste.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2004
Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm. Offical tasting with represetatives from the brewery.
Had this as cask before being a Rater. THAT is a beer to walk miles for. Quite good botteled as well with aroma of coffee and smoked ham. Full bodied. A nice chilly dayís beer.
