Dark brown with little and dying beige head. Aroma: chocolate. Taste: chocolate, coffee. No aftertaste. Good enough to give it a second oportunity.

rand (1270) - SWITZERLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Creamy and intense Porter, roasted chocolate-coffee, toast, point of licorice. Itís soft and malted with a final dryness of earthy and grassy hop and a bitterness of torrefaction.

Havenít had a good Porter in awhile, and this is a good Porter. Great appearance, dark brown color with a light brown had. You know itís going to be creamy with the lacing, and it didnít disappoint. Sweet aroma, like cane sugar, delicious mocha and malt taste.

Sam Smith has this unfortunate position in the market: if you want English beer for whatever reason, thatís the one you know, but for most people it reinforces the notion that English beer is just boring in general. A certain number of people want to have imported English beer available, and Sam Smith fills that spot, but it doesnít inspire anyone to look for other, different English beers. So aside from the high-end specialty beer shops, no one one carries any "craft" English beer, and the vast majority of people donít know it exists.

Pours nice and dark with tan head. Brilliantly clear with garnet highlights when held up to the light. Pear and apple esters on the nose with a bit of toasty malt. Flavor is balanced toward the malt, with a chocolaty, toasted nut finish. Fruity flavor in there as well. Hops are very low. Mouthfeel is balanced nicely between the roasted malt astringency and residual sweetness. Highly drinkable and very smooth. Would love to try this on cask someday.

mgajdaczewa (427) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 31, 2014
W aromacie karmel, gorzka czekolada, ciemne słody, czyli standard. W smaku wytrawny, palony z gorzką czekoladą i lekkimi torfowo - wędzonymi nutami na finiszu. Porządny, acz trochę płaski porter.

Pitch black with a good frothy foamy head. Not very smoky for a porter, but rich and deeply flavoured.
