Historically the term used to describe a porter blended from a variety of ales, entire butt uses 14 different malts and 3 hops to recreate this forgotten style of porter. The beer is black/brown with a crisp white head and is distinctly vinuous. It has little hop character as essentially the flavour is derived from the malts. Malts used: pale Maris Otter, lager, wheat, pale crystal, dark crystal, dark chocolate, pale chocolate, black, roasted barley, caramalt, torrified wheat, amber malt, brown malt and malted oats.

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Deep dark brown, nearly black, with a thin light beige head. Nutty chocolaty English aroma. Crisp and medium flavor with a lot of bitter cocoa and roasted black biscuit malt. Lots of roast. Aftertaste has a bit of bittersweet dark chocolate and a touch of coffee. The middle also has a certain mineraliness you usually find in English ales.

Bottle. Deceptively hoppy/beer aroma, but delightful sweet porter. Very flavorful with light chocolate and malt flavors. Just goes to show you don’t have to follow the current trend of mega ABV to create a very satisfying, tasty beer.

mansquito (5339) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2015
The sampler, brooklyn bottle: pour blackish with a beige head. Aroma is lihhtly roasted malt with hints of chocolate and more malt and more. Taste is, as others noted, all over the place. Not really roasty. Not really chocolatey. Not really coffee. Not really fruity. Kind of minerally. Not bad.

Pours deep amber-brown from 12 oz. Malty aroma, some caramel and plums. Toasty flavor, vinous, with bitter finish. Full bodied low carbonation. Good beer, a bit of mish mash with no defining characteristics, but overall drinkable.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - APR 2, 2015
bottle from Sloth. dark brown body looks like the water when cleaning the nozzles on coke dispenser. lasting khaki head. slightly dusty nose with a bit of white pepper and very light toffee. thin body with a watered down marshmallow flavor and some light caramel. seems like it is just a bit past, but still enjoyable.

panzerwolf (275) - FINLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Creamy texture, a full-bodied, dark taste of malts, chocolate and coffee. A little bit roasted, very much enjoyed this one. Smooth to drink but not without some character to it.

floydslip (344) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Dark cola-colored beer with a thin fizzy eggshell head. Somewhat peculiar nose of toffee, raisins, and chocolate cake. Flavor is wonderfully malty with slightly toasted nuts, semi-sweet coffee, cocoa, licorice, and black strap molasses all coming through. A little wisp of bitterness finishes it. Despite all the nuances, it is still rather mild for a porter. A different and enjoyable porter.
