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.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2001
Almost black; Roast & chocolate dominate the aroma; palate is very straightforward in its toastiness. A touch of creaminess in the body and very faint fruitiness round out this beer.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Cavie) Pours a mahogany body with a medium cream head. Aroma of roasted malt, peat, and chocolate. Aroma of light smoke, roasted malt, some vinous, and cocoa.

argo0 (11568) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2002
Beautiful deep red-brown with a nice tan head. The aroma is chocolate and red wine, quite inviting. Flavor is much the same, along with some roastiness and coffee, but a little weaker than I’d like. At times my mouth felt satisfied, but at others the sensation was watery.

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2010 Outrageous! i enjoyed this porter very much. Poured a dark black with a strong head. Aroma of roasted malts. Flavor of malts as well, along with choclate and notes of cinnamon - yes, cinnamon! Thick and rich, it felt great to drink. A beer fo savoring. Finished smooth. Exactly what I had wanted.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Bottle from Bottle Barn. Pours dark brown with a big tan head. Aromas of coffee and toasted malt. Near medium body with moderate carbonation. Flavor is mostly coffee, but I swear there is some celery. Seems to be a touch of citrus. Finishes with sharpish flavor. A little off style to my test.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2007
Bottle from Belo Vino. Pours black color with an average frothy brown head that was diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee malt aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable beer.

Lubiere (10152) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2005
Deep black porter with a nice thick moka head. Sweet vinous chocolate aroma, very smooth and sweet, with vanilla points. In mouth, lightly lactic smooth chocolate, not too sweet but lacking in roastiness. Very restrained but sustained bitter chocolate. Not bad considering the beer is over a year old.

daknole (9226) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Bottle from my trip to Vermont. Pours a dark black color with a small head. Aroma is fine of chocolate and molasses. But flavor is bitter, watery and almost tart. Too dry for me. Give me a Fullers Porter please!!!

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and some caramel. Tastes of roast, burnt malts, and a light coffee finish. Drinkable porter that I found to be a tad on the ’boring’ side.
