This is a smooth, full-bodied beer. A rich "nuts & berries" flavor followed by a coffee-like finish. Based on the traditional English Porter beers ofthe late 1800’s. Originally created for Irish immigrants working the shipping docks in England. They were a hard working lot who wanted a "stout" style brew with more alcohol content to drink during their all too short lunch breaks.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with reddish highlights. Minimal head. Roasted malt, nut, and some dark fruit sweetness. This is pretty enjoyable stuff.

Poured a nice dark brown with a light beige head and lacing. Aroma was malty and fruity with a twinge of sweetness. Taste was of roasted malts up front with slight inklings of coffee and cocoa. It finished with a light to moderate hop bitterness and a slight hay flavor. Palate was very good. Overall, a nice porter!

Aroma is heavy on the malt, but with hints of blackberries and stone fruit. A delicious malt flavor underneath the steady carbonation. Finish is medium to dry, with hints of coffee and a nice gravity. Liked it a lot, had on draft at the Weary Traveler in Madison, Wisconsin.

Aroma is dark fruit/berries, lightly roasted malts and a hint of acidity. The flavor is berries, coffee, malts and a mix of fruit and acidity in the finish.

Lots of head. Unexpectedly fruity, very smooth. Finishes coffee. I had this a long time ago and could swear it used to have some soy sauce taste in it, but I don’t notice any this time. Solid average porter.

Bottle. Aroma- Malty, nutty, some banana and faint berry. Appearance- Black, opaque, with a tan, frothy head. Taste- Smoky, coffee, nutty, dark berry, slightly salty. Palate- Full bodied and rich, average carbonation, with an astringent, long, bitter finish. Pretty solid porter, though the smoky finish almost tends toward a burnt flavor the further into the glass you get.

A very nice porter. Slightly thicker mouthfeel than average. The chocolatey sweetness is potent and the roasted element tempers it. Tried at the Cunigan’s tasting party in Oct of 2012.

Dark brown coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying slightly off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, toffee, caramel, nuts and a bit of earth - fairly strong, but all good. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong sweet flavour at first with a good roasted malt flavour with an earthy and slightly pungent bite soon afterwards. Aftertaste shows some good qualities and a nice complexity with chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and earth very noticeable. Overall, a nice complex and roust porter - a great beer, especially for the style.I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Ridgeview Liqours in Green Bay, Wisconsin for US$1.79 sampled at my hotel room in Green Bay on 29-July-2012.
