COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Faithfully recreated by Geary's, this classic English style has a deep mahogany color and a restrained roasted malt flavor. The result is rich and complex, yet smooth and refreshing.

Tampa, FL - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a deep dark brown leading to black with a nice off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Rich aroma with some nice bittersweet chocolate and coffee notes with a hint of fresh potting soil. Flavor is full bodied and bold. Bittersweet dark chocolate is prominent with some espresso notes and a bit of black potting soil. Nice, thick chalky mouthfeel. Porter definitely worth pounding!

It would be decent for a brown ale but not enough smokiness to justify a porter. Pretty watered down taste. Not bad but not great.

This is one of my favorite porters. It’s got all of the classic english style points. Very roasty and smooth.

Sasparilla black body with Coca-Cola foam head. Roasty nose with feint, but distinct, soot character. Thin body, sweet and sooty all at once, with some power black ash in a dry finish at the back of the palate. Light in alcohol content, rather thin, and ashy--this how I think an early Olde World porter may have tasted.

really good session porter, no strong flavors that are off putting, and nothing that makes it truly unique, but a solid middle of the road porter

opaque mahogany with a thick lasting beige head; a creamy medium-full body with a dry-ish character from the astringency: carbonation is medium.

aroma: metallic astringent grain, dark malt, and some leafy hops, with a touch of chocolate malt.

taste: sweet chocolate malt up front, followed by dry grains and a bit of astringent hop character. a strong iron-like metallic note.

Poured a very dark brown with an enormous foamy light-tan head that didn’t fade very quickly. Aroma has lots of caramel, milk chocolate, and nuts. Some slightly yeasty notes as well. Taste is a little thin, but with lots of nutty flavors. Finish is slightly fruity with some slight tart flavors. Aftertaste isn’t the best, not too crisp. Overall decent, they captured the British style pretty well.

tap - Pours very dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma is mild dark roast malt. It tastes roasty and malty with elements of coffee and chocolate. It’s just too mild and too watery though. I’m really not impressed.

On tap at Annabell’s Pub. Pours black with a creamy tan head that remained. Aroma is carmel. Mouthfeel is creamy. Very smooth with carmel and roasted flavor with a great balance. Much better on tap than in the bottle.
