UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Bottle. Poured a very dark brown with a medium (1-2 fingers) sized creamy tan head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was moderately strong with the scent of roasted bread malts, mild resin hops and a dark leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and molasses. It tasted nice and malty with a hint of bitterness and a dose of coffee at first and finished with a strong bitter and a mild sweet flavor that had a hint of chocolate at the end. The flavor that was left did not nearly last long enough. Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet a tad creamy in texture with a very soft carbonation. Overall not a bad Porter, although it was rather tasty it could of had a little more body for my liking. With that said I enjoyed it totally and it is definitely worth a try.

12oz brown bottle from Whole Foods into Spieglau glass. It poured an opaque dark brown colour with long-lasting beige foam, nice lace. Low but pleasant aromas: brown bread, toast, woodsy Fuggle-ish English hop traits. Flavour was fuller: malty, caramelly, bready and toasty again, strong berry fruitiness and red wine tannic notes. Tart with a very dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, balance brown ale aftertaste. I see they formerly used Centennial aroma hops, which would’ve given it a more American profile. As is, this was an extremely authentic London Porter, reminicent of Fullers or Meantime. Good stuff.

Bif (1445) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a black color with a thick tan head that fades slowly to ample lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Taste of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt and a bit nutty. Distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Solid body, smooth with a robust character. Very well balanced. Enjoyable beer, nice example of the style.

lovely coffee, cery full... low on carbs and a bit of a watery texture, it lacks some body, but the aroma is awesome

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear dark brown, red tinged, long lasting beige head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, as expected. Taste had a light fruity note, more coffee. Good body for the strength. Roasted bitter finish. Nice.

Deeply bitter, strong espresso wake up call without smooth mouthfeel. A solid porter. Rated by BrewTom

MarkoNm (535) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours a deep black color, topped with a small cream colored head. Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee in the aroma, not too strong, pleasant. The taste starts more on the sweet side, some roasted notes. Bittery in the finish with coffee in the aftertaste. Delicious
