Nice tasting beer. Pours well and holds a decent head. Taste was a little thin.

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.

Noer1 likes this better than their Imperial Stout and I have to disagree. I thought this was a terrific brew with a nice roasty nose and a great finish, but I guess I just prefer the full bodiness of a stout.

This by far is my favorite samuel smith product, the only thing I enjoy equally by them is the oatmeal stout! Great Stuff!

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2002
Very interesting sweet taste, lacks the usual roasty coffee and chocolate, and has a very strong overtone of green apple. Very enjoyable in small doses, but the sweetness would be too much in more than one bottle at a time.

Dark brown to black, lightly carbonated with a fair tan foam that quickly disappears. Slightly burnt nose with an inviting sweetness. Flavors are very sophisticated, essentially rich and malty with a definite sweetness. Finishes slightly dry but the sweet taste still remains. I also noticed hints of oak and smokiness. Another beer to sip and savor.
