The bottle empties to reveal a blackened body with a dark brown head. The nose is coffee and licorice with some hops and malt. Perhaps some dark chocolate as well. The taste confirms these aromas and allows you to judge them as a mixed bouquet of flavors. The finish is bitter but not so much so that it is undrinkable. Decent beer.

the aroma is mostly yeast; very dark brown color - almost black - with a caramel-colored, long-lasting head; rich taste with some coffee flavor; moderately bitter finish

Bottle: Pours deep dark red with medium rocky beige-brown head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits. Lovely smooth full body. Brilliant taste of roasted grain and chocolate. Burnt coffee finish. Great stuff.

A fine brew, but no "Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout"! "Taddy Porter" is my buddy Will's favorite beer though...I guess he just can't hack the perfection that is "Oatmeal Stout".

Deep royal ruby and dark brown translucent colour. Mild roasted malt, golden syrup and raisins aroma. Medium smooth creamy palate. Medium strong roasted malt, chocolate, instant coffee with hints of smoked aroma. Light slightly disappointingly short and softer dry roast finish and aftertaste.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Dark black color with minimal head. Sweetish aroma with some grassy, organic-smelling background and alcohol deep in the background. Flavor is sweet, mildly bitter with a dark roast coffee-ness.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2003
Nice dark black color,small tan head mild lacing.nice roasted malt aroma with a mild hop ,possibly coffee or dark chocolate.The taste is roasted malt with a nice dark chocolate taste and an after taste that is roasty and chocolatey as well,the hops are just mildly there making there presence known at the tail end of the taste and even more mildly in the after taste.The texture is a bit thin,kind of on the watery side,but still it wasn't a bad brew but quite refreshing.

12 oz bottle, pint glass. Pours a deep black with a garnet hue around the edges. Comes with a gigantic, brown, rocky, creamy head which is slow to diminish. I can detect some chocolate and coffee malts. Flowery hops and doughy yeast aromas come along for the ride. There seem to be some dark fruit aromas, but not as much as in other porters. Mod. sweet start flows into a smooth bittersweet finish. Very rich, almost truffel like, cocoa finish. Flavor lingers longer than average and there's only a hint of acidity. Medium full body has a creamy texture and very soft carbonation. I can imagine this going very well with lamb or a peppery steak.

Wonderful large rocky light brown head that left a good lacing, great colour and taste to boot! Coffee and rich chocolate and nice bitterness.Cheers!
