I gave myself a look of greatness after a swig of Entire Butt. Now that’s not bad, not bad at all. Keep in mind I just drank a McEwans and a glass of warm water would be an improvement. But since Im no smuck, and I know a thing or two about a thing or two, Ill be brutally honest. This is a good fucking porter. No strings attached. If I wanted to pull dick Id be working the corner. A combination of bland blackness with the strength of ten men. You cant get more poetic then that.

Very thin and lacking full-flavor, but it isn’t entirely unpleasant, as it is very smooth and not too heavy. Not much hoppiness, but plenty of maltiness. Neither sweet nor dry, very balanced. A very drinkable porter, but not a memorable one.

Huh, huh huh, entire butt, huh huh. Okay, now that that is out of the way, this is a pretty decent porter. Nice, dark tan appearance, and a roasted malt aroma that invites you to drink. Toffee and coffee in the flavor, with a nice, roasty finish. The body is slightly thin, and, as Ringo pointed out, with 14 malts I expected a little more from this beer, but it is still a tasty, easy-drinking porter.

Dark but a little thin for a reasonably strong stout.Although the bottle talks about 14 different malts the overriding taste that I could detect was like sulphur.Once that had cleared there was a delicate bittersweet taste with hints of caramel.Interesting but not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium tan head, dark red body (not opaque), roasty, malty nose. Body is somewhat thin, complex, rather bitter. Coffee is the most prevalent flavor. Pretty good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice, strongly malty aroma with some toffee, dark bread, lightly roasted coffee and cocoa. Slight head (perhaps poured a bit too carefully), and having a deep mahogany shade. Flavor progresses through a lot of the different malt characters, making this a very interesting drink, in addition to the underlying historical interest. It is kind of fun to see how many you can pick out, as the bottle label suggests. Just as one aspect starts to become most apparent, along comes another. Complex and very drawn out. Finish is quite long and lingering with roasty accents throughout. Body is on the thin side, with a faintly effervescent flourish. Fascinating and satisfying ale.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2008 This is a "malt-mouths" dream come true. Dark black pour, creamy brown head. Malt flavor abundant. Finishes same.
