COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available bottled. Has been seen on tap.
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.

Extra large tan/brown head with white caps on top, a little overcarbonated.. Pitch black, opaque.Chocolatey, roasty, fruity nose. Medium body. Bittersweet chocolate with hints of cocoa and cola flavors. Finish is dry and somewhat roasty.

The color was dark amd sort of translucent. Aroma, bitter and sweet. The taste, however... not pleasant. Some sort of mildewy attack that goes straight to bitter. I really didn't enjoy it.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2003
Sharp Roasty aroma, and very round. Very dark beer with brown head. Low carbonation. Smooth round flavor with Black Patent type finish. Delicate and sweet with low hop. Overall good, but could use a little more oomph.

Shag (2738) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 The name of this beer is honestly what caught my attention. Appearance is black with little head. Aroma is caramel, raisins, and coffee. Flavor is a little thin and slightly sour with a marked bitterness. Not the most complex beer but certainly a nice one. This may be the funniest beer name Iíve seen yet. Porter got back?! Nice "ass" beer? Ok Iíll stop!

amx1970390 (480) - Southampton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Cola with light coffee aroma. Thin, light tan head. Root beer in color. Flavor is like most porters, bitter but weaker than a stout. Flavor is mostly dark malts. Finish is watery,dry with light notes of port.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2003
A very black porter allowing no light to shine through. Creamy head settles down to a thin slick oftan foam. Very stout-like in appearance. Has a dry roasted malt like aroma with hints of chocolate. Mouthfeel is not quite full but pretty close to a Guiness. Flavor is malty oats and a dry bitter chocolate. This is nearly a stout in my opinion. Not a great one but not all that bad either.

aracauna (3352) - Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Surprisingly stout-like for an English porter. Dark and looks black for most part, but closer inspection shows that it's just a really dark brown. A nice roastiness jumps out at you first, a bit thin in the middle and some toffee in the finish. Hops are AWOL (as the label said they would be). Quite the tasty porter. Not on the level of Fuller's London Porter, but still nice.

Dorwart (2482) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2003
Nice settling head of tan bubbles. Diminishes to a thin foam with good lacing. Excellent aroma dominated by roasted malts, coffee and a touch of black cherry (yum). The color is a very dark port and the body is a little on the thin side. Initial taste is metallic but dies quickly into a smooth coffee and dark chocolate taste. Not too sweet. Finish is slightly bitter. A decent porter but a little low on alcohol and the flavor. I have had better.

BillKismet (3659) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Black, headless, and flat appearance--proves accurate. Robust malt, with the distinct loveliness of apricot in the bouquet endowing it with one of the best porter fragrances.. Smooth body rolls down the gullet. Again, robust maltiness appears with a distinct apricot taste. This feels like a trip back in time--and interesting slant on the style.

hotstuff (4643) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2003
When poured into my glass, this beer had a very small head that quickly diminished. There was no lacing present on the sides of my glass. The hue of this beer is black. The nose is roasted coffee and chocolate. The flavor is strong roasted coffee from start to finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, thin and somewhat watery.
