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.

Scipio (750) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2013
Pours a dark brownish not quite black with a medium tan head. The aroma is earthy, with caramel, chocolate, nuts, and bready malts. The taste has a main focus on chocolate and nuts. It is very malty and bready, especially as the taste lingers in your mouth. I find some hints of raisin in here as well. Aftertaste consists of caramel, chocolate and bread. Medium bodied and chewy in texture. It isn’t overly carbonated. Not bad. I think I actually like this a bit more than my rating suggests. All of the impressions are rather subtle here. But I’m drinking this, the more I’m enjoying it.

Pours a very dark brown with red highlights and a large off-white head. Aroma has some mild roastiness, mild chocolate, and a bit of fruit. Taste is similar-- some roastiness, some chocolate and fruit. Thin bodied and somewhat watery.

panzerwolf (155) - 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 (231) - 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.

Werckmeister (534) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 22, 2014

A pretty good porter, but light than I was expecting. Has some roasted appeal, but the sweetness, some caramel and chocolate, dominates.

alexsdad06 (6567) - Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, bakers chocolate, some dark fruit character that has a slight tart note, thin compared to most porters, but the flavor is still there, this was one of the first English porters I had and not something I would revisit.

Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, red berry fruit, creamy caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a light malt hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
