berkshirejohn (5884) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2012
Keg at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Pitch black with an attractive ruby red tint and a tight cream head; chocolate aroma; smooth with a milky body, but far too cold, so only a light dry chocolate taste is discernable. Satisfying overall, but needs warming up!

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2011
330 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse charlottesville. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Fruity and roasty aroma with some caramel, smoke and anise. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, smoke, fruity notes, caramel, faint hops. Smooth, creamy, medium bodied. Quite a nice beer.

TheBeerGod (5949) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle. Black pour with a short, foamy tan head. Roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and coffee in the aroma with subtle hops as well. Taste is surprisingly a bit sweet with chocolate, roasted malt, coffee notes, soft hops, and faint burnt caramel. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more roasted malt, dark chocolate, soft hops, cold coffee and light caramel.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium, tan head. Roasted malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. Roasted malt flavor with a hint of licorice and coffee. A hint of hops in the finish. A little thin, but decent flavor.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Appearance: solid black – not oily but charcoal and burnt. Khaki head is thin with scattered patches of bubbles. Smidges of lace inch their way up sides of my glass. Swirls with lace and thick sides.
Nose: burnt toast – dry, crisp, and wholly black. Dark fruits in the back. Dry unadulterated cacao dust. Burnt raisins. Dark fruit stones and dry almonds. Twigs, dirt, and black earth. Charcoal ash.
Palate: a touch smoky. Dark fruits in the finish. Burnt and ashen dry woods. Sweetness of dark fruits and black strap along the sides. Pits and stones in the breath. Smoke and treacle weave in and out. Plums, grapes, and Washington apple skins.
Final Thoughts: wowsers. Serious flavor packed into a seriously quaffable traditional dry stout. Guinness? Pft! I’ll have my Porterhouse Plain Porter and drink it too.

phaleslu (9251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2011
On nitro at The Royale. Served in a pint glass. Pours a coffee brown color with a cascading hot chocolate-colored, creamy, soft head that leaves heavy lace in the glass. Aroma of dark and baker’s chocolate, coffee, cream, and toasted sugar. Flavor is lighter than the nose- roast, chocolate, coffee, and rust. Light-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Roasty on the back of the palate. Nice, simple, and straightforward.

suprchunk (2944) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Black colored pour. Large sized creamy off-white head that sticks around for the entire drink and leaves a healthy dose of lacing. Roasty aroma with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Roasty flavor. Dry. Very good.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Not what I was hoping for. This was my first Porterhouse, and I guess after their claims of being better than Guinness, I had my hopes up. Sorry....give me a Guiness, anyday. This taste like an amature’s attempt at a stout. It’s a little rough, has an alcohol bite, and a yeasty peat flavor.
