Thick, fluffy head. Relatively weak taste considering dark color and full body. Nice on the palate. Although alcohol presence increases as the glass is emptied, it remains a mild tasting and decent porter.

Skunky :( Aroma is skunky with a little bit of malt. Flavor is still skunky with some underlying layers of roasted malt. Seems like there might be a good porter in there somewhere. Perhaps a bit thin though, and there’s a sourness that I’m not sure is related to the skunkiness. Very dark brown with a medium head and fair lacing. Finish is dry and bitter.

I think it sort of reminded me of Arrogant Bastard ale ,but I really can’t remember.

Tastes a bit winy and sweet, as do all the Smith beers, but still enjoyable. Not for everybody.

One of my favorite porters on the planet. This is one of the tastiest beers out there. My only complaint is the price most places charge. $4 buck a bottle. Still I have to treat my self to one of the classics every now and then. Definetly a must try.
