550ml clear bottle. Poured dark brown with ruby highlights, bitter chocolate and roasted malt aromas. Notes of molasses, brown sugar, caramel and roasted malts. A little thin in the finish.

Best sam smith brew. Compared head to head with the highly rated Fullers london and prefered the sam smith. more interesting hop profile than fullers. not realy a fair comparison as i am an american hop head and not fond of the usualy milder english stuff.

My favorite porter and hands down the best in the Samuel Smith line of beers. If you have never tried a porter, don’t try this one first because all the rest will taste sub par after you are done.

Apperance: Dark brown nearly no head, just like every other sammy smith. Aroma: Very light, nutty and malty. Much like every other sammy smith. Flavor profile: Light, subtle, slightly nutty and malty, much like every other sammy smith, not much like a porter IMO. Overall: Not bad, but it tastes not the same but very similar to the sammy nut brown and their stout. A brewer thats just not for me maybe.

Now this is an English Porter. A beautiful dark brown ale - not opaque, if you look at it correctly - with a lasting head and a bouquet of roasted malt, chocolate, and (slightly) coffee, this brew goes down quite easily, although you will be tasting it for minutes afterwards: Malt predominates, with some roasted barley and chocolate following, as well as a little cherry ester and some late-arriving nuttiness. Best at around 55 degrees so that you experience all the flavors intended by the brewers.

Pours a nice dark color. Aroma is of malts, smells kind of burnt. Coffee aroma as well. Flavor is dominated by roasted malts. Some coffee and chocolate in there as well. Good porter but not as rich as I would have liked.

Black with a nice thick head that lasted. Great smokey roasty aroma and flavor. Then medium body and robust flavor made for a great easy drinking beer that got better as it warmed up. A great beer to have around for those cold nights that we DO get down here in the winter months!

To me, the best of Samuel Smith. A deep, dark brown body under a big, creamy tan head. The aroma, for some reason, is not as intense as the flavor. It has hints of roasted malt, coffee, some fruit. Good strong body with just the right touch of everything. The flavor is rich and robust. Touches of nuts, coffee, malt, fruit, and a little smoke. Quite good.

Dark brown with a big head. Something like port-wine in both the aroma and flavor. A bit thin.
