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.

KajII (777) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a very dark brown with a reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin puddling and medium collar that produced fair runny lacing. The aroma was of dark roasted malts and a sweaty leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a hint of molasses. The taste was very malty with a touch of bitter chocolate and a hint of sweet molasses in the beginning, and then slowly progressed with a slightly bitter sweet coffee flavor towards the end. The flavor hung around for a short while with the mild bitter coffee taste becoming more dominant as time pasted. Mouthfeel was a bit below medium in body and rather thin in texture with a somewhat prickly carbonation. Overall a pretty basic Porter with a good flavor and easy drinkability, I could see myself drinking a few of these...

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2014
From the bottle, this poured an opaque dark brown body with a creamy light brown head. It had an aroma of lightly toasted malt, licorice, and chocolate. The flavor added a taste of iced coffee to the mix. Just okay.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler. Dark brown with a small dark beige head. Toasted malt and coffee nose, with green grassy hops. Black coffee flavor, a bit thin, lo-med bitterness, roasted malts, faint sweetness, dry and lacks some chocolaty depth. Somewhat over carbonated, light-med body, decent but boring.

rondphoto (1771) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Opaque brown-black with a large-bubbled tan head that remains as a good cover, heavy bands of lace. When judging this, let’s remember it is 4.2% abv, which says a lot about how much the brewmaster has accomplished. Taste is bitter malt with a touch of mocha and burnt toast. The flavor is particularly strong on the sides of the tongue along with the buzz from carbonation. I believe this is intended as a session porter, and it succeeds very well.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: Deep dark browns bordering on black. Clear. A thin broken film of khaki rests on top.
Nose: Dark fruits with roast along the sides and chocolate on top. Sweet smoke weaves in and out. Black breads infused with prunes.
Palate: Medium-light mouthfeel with a clean body. Dark fruits in the middle. Dry bitter and tart tannins of dark fruit skins along the sides. The flavor hits quick and finishes quick with not much of anything hanging around.
Final Thoughts: For a sessionable English style porter, she was alright but in no way anything special. I have tasted better.

Draft. Black pour with creme colored head that lingers. Nice malt aroma. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors with no sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown color. Not much head. Flavor is burnt grains, slight mocha. Aroma is burnt toast. Had much better Porters.

The brew has a roasted chocolate smell to it. The color is a deep, dark brown with a bit of dark red where the light gets through. The head is a medium brown with almost no clinging to the side and dissipated quickly. The carbonation gets in the way of the roasted malt flavor.

puboflyons (2043) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 19, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is dark brown to nearly black with a lasting mocha foamy head. It looks the way it should. The aroma is powerful with dark malts and coffee and a little smoke. But the finale is not as good as the start. The body is thin to medium. The taste has a butterscotch thing and a low bitterness but it kind of astringent and acidic. It looks and smells good but something is missing in the body and flavor.

Headbanger (3226) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2013
12oz bottle 4/13/13 (Binny’s Naperville clearance Rack)-40° in English Pint-Pours dark brown with a small circle for a head. Aroma of rpasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste of the same with a smoke, malt, and coffee. This full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. A bit lighter but still tasty.

TURDFERGUSON (3928) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle from SH. Pours mahogany brown with a small fizzy off white head that fades. Nose is roast, toast, light metal, and lactic sourness. Flavor is similar, definitely of the Old English style. Not a huge fan.
