Coffee and some oyster smell, dark brown & red, like Pepsi color, smooth and good, but rather for porter, slightly slimy, pretty good but not top notch

I could be way off the mark with this but my initial reaction was Black Jack gum! Smells just like a fresh pack! Being a porter of course the sweet sugar taste isnít present but licorice, licorice, licorice screams outta the glass!

Thick head. Dark brown, almost black color. Smells wine and bread that is about to be toasted. The mildest non-nitro beer Iíve ever tried. Sweet bread, roast that is there for you in the aftertaste as well. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.†

Deeper clear mahogany, light tan head. Leathery, tobacco, some stronger coffee notes. Some chocolate. Gym shorts. Fairly bitter, strong sweetness. Heavy body, quite oily. Decent amount of acidity. Long aftertaste.

Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tall goblet. Very dark brown, minimal head. Typical porter light coffee roast blended with plum nose. Roasty flavor, finishes with refreshing touch of bitter. A solid porter, but nothing terribly special.

Bottled. Blackish with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and well roasted grains. Taste is chocolate and lactase with a dry bitter finish. Palate is full. Overall: decent.

Not bad but not great either. Good color, nice aroma but still kind of falls short.

Decent Porter. Itís a bit mild, smooth, other stuff. 6.8% alcohol is a good thing.

This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell started off with some sweet to roasty coffee to cocoa. Light dark sweet fruitiness rounds it all out.
The taste was mainly sweet with a big underscore of the bitter to roasty on the aftertaste and leading into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing a decent stickiness all around.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Porter that I would have again.
