Lots of carbonation...smell is very good but light...of dark fruits and malt...taste is lighter than expected, perhaps due to carbonation...wish it was a bit maltier and slightly sweeter

Smells of roast malt and caramel. Pour is pitch black with a tanned head. Taste is overwhelmingly good, coffee, chocolate. Yum!

550ml bottle to snifter glass, dark pour with a generous off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, smokiness, and caramel malts. Tatse is very creamy and smooth, great complexity and balance of sweet, smoky, and malty. This is a treat to drink! Love it.

550 ml. Bottle. Dark, deep brown, nice foamy, generous tan head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, malts and caramel. Taste is quite consistent smokey notes, malty, some fruit very earthy... Nice, super enjoyable beer, in my opinion a proper porter and also another winner from Samuel Smith.

Oelbas (118) - DENMARK - JAN 8, 2014
Meget mørk rødbrun med lys brunt holdbart skum. Duften er fyldig og præget af hårdt ristet malt med en smuke chokolade. Smag er let syrlig og fyldig med chokolade i en dominerende rolle. Bitterheden er ikke fremtrædende og stammer i høj grad fra brændt malt. Eftersmagen har let bitterhed især fra brændt malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Discretamente corposa, secca, dal sapore di caffé legato da note di cioccolato: una porter classica, con poca fantasia ma con un carattere che può permettersi di fare della tradizione una virtù. A volte essere conservatori, paga.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a brown appearance with a light brown head. Milk chocolate, somewhat roasty, slight fruity twangy, herbal aroma. Quite roasty, almost smoky, slightly burnt, nutty, earthy flavor. Kind of a cool beer.

Very drinkable, and not very bold or overpowering. Not a strong smell. Pours like a glass of diet coke poured from a two liter that was opened a week ago (aka, it's a little thick and not very carbonated). No head. Notes of chocolate and coffee.

Bottle. This is the standard porter for me against which other porters are measured.

An outstanding English porter. It’s got a dark brown body and a generous tan head with an aroma that has barley and hints of cocoa and nuttiness. The flavor is roasty and slightly smoky with lots of toasted malt. A moderate and refreshing feel that’s quite memorable. Another winner from Samuel Smith’s Tadcaster brewery.
