I had a bottle of the legendary “Taddy” tonight after work. This brew pours a lovely murky dark brown with red highlights. The large light brown rocky head is somewhat lasting and has good lacing. The moderate nose speaks of cookies, roasted cereal, caramel, coffee, herby perfume, sweaty soap, and toffee. The flavor comes to life as this sweet porter warms. Initially it is heavy with sweetness and finishes with a moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. The finish is long with a nice helping of roasted chocolate and coffee. This brew has a soft full mouthfeel that is both oily and creamy finishing clean and slightly metallic. Samuel Smith comes through again. This beer is like sex - the more I drink it, the more I like it. Cheers!!

Wonderful color, head, and aroma! Creamy tan foam lingers for quite a while. The roasted aroma does remind me of black coffee, and the taste even more so! This is the ONLY beer I’ve tried that actually does taste like coffee, and since beer and coffee are my two favorite beverages, I like it...alot! The sweet although slightly sour finish reminds me of Coffee Nip candy, too. The last porter I tried, I couldn’t stand. This one is now one of my absolute favorites of ANY style!

Excellent brew! A nice little coffee flavor and sweet aftertaste. Samuel Smith truly knows how to brew a Porter.

Not as bold as some porters I’ve had, but a keeper.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 Very nice malty aroma. Great dark brown/black color with a thick, frothy head. Roasted coffee flavor with a very healthy, sweet/sour aftertaste.
