Almost like a guinnes but smoother. Not bitter. I liked this beer a lot. Had on the tap, in a glass with dark brown color and a tasty burger. Very filling meal

11th October 2008. GABF. Clear dark brown beer. Malty with a little toastyness about it but really not an interesting beer.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Tap at Cambridge. I think this is a textbook Porter, and that is why itís impressive. Aroma is hazelnut, chocolate, well-creamed coffee. Texture is velvety without tasting buttery. Very smooth, very relaxing.

(Draught) Pours a amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted grain, raisins, caramel, and light peat. Flavor of roasted malt, raisins, some cocoa, and caramel with a dry finish.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Got it in a growler from the bar. It pours a tan head, which is darker the closer you get to the liquid. Dark brown body. Roasty and nutty aroma. Really nutty and really malty. Some chocolate taste in it as well. Almost an oatmeal taste at times. I rather liked it.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Dusky, overly warm fermented English ale yeast. Heavy esters and minerals masks light ash. Not welcoming. Pours a mid-brown, with little head. Flavor is as expected. A shallow wash of brown malt sugars, tannic, peaty harsh smoke malt, and then a drying curb of alcohol. Underfermented. The smoke is gross. Not well balanced in the beer. Malt depth is shallow, with little complexity. Chocolate malt dryness makes up for some of the sugars. One redeeming factor is the nice gummy english hop glow on the backend.

yespr (40865) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
From tap at the brewpub in Cambridge. Pours black with a little off white head. Malty caramel and chocolate aroma. Light chocolate and roasted malt flavoured. Mild bitter in the finish, blending nicely in with the mild chocolate note. Nice.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 20, 2007
On tap at the Harvard location. Pours a deep brown with hints of amber and a smaller tan head. Aroma of light smoke, chocolate, some peat, light earthiness and some caramel. Flavor of slightly roasty/chocolate malt, some caramel and very light smoke.

2beerguys (299) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Dark, reddish body with light-brown head, Fully diminishing. Aroma is of roasted malts with sweet undertones. Initial taste is loaded with coffee notes, more reminiscent of a stout. Moderately bitter, moving to a light bitter finish with average duration. Light to medium on the mouth, it has a watery to creamy texture with soft carbonation. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee in the taste. Reviewed on January 20th, 2007.
