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.

Beerenberger (1596) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Aroma has a subtle sweet quality. Pours a black color with a tan head. Tastes of bitter coffee which carries through into the aftertaste. Light bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, while enjoyable, I would like to have a fuller bodied brew.

superspak (4403) - Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2016
330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/24/2014. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar, molasses, toasted brown bread, light coffee/nuttiness, plum, apple, herbal, wood, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, brown sugar, molasses, toasted brown bread, light coffee/nuttiness, plum, apple, herbal, wood, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, milk chocolate, cocoa, toasted brown bread, nuttiness, herbal, wood, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from hop/roast bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy, and sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero alcohol warming as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very nice English porter style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

jrodooo5 (1442) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Very nice dark pour w/ a retaining off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is surprisingly boozy w/out much else coming through. The taste has some nice malt character upfront but quickly fades into a dry booziness. It’s different for the style & low abv but I’m not completely in love w/ it!

Aroma -toffee, caramel, chocolate, and roasted barley. Appearance - the body is seal brown, almost black. The head is beige and 2+" and frothy, the lacing is very good. Taste - rich mix of malt - some chocolate, roasted barley, caramel, and some oats. Palate - medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, and malty somewhat tannic finish.
