3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 4/13/2012. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense and fluffy khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toast, molasses, brown bread, raisin, light roasted malt, earth, and light herbal hops. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity; fairly light on strength. Taste of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, molasses, light coffee, brown bread, raisin, light nuttiness, earth, and herbal hops. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, toffee, roasted malt, light coffee, brown bread, raisin, earth, and herbal on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of nicely robust flavors with good complexity; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice English porter. Very nice robustness and balance of flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering as expected.

Color caoba oscuro con reflejos rubí y espuma beige. Aromas de caramelo, frutas confitadas y tostados. En boca es ligera (para mi gusto, demasiado) al inicio muestra un dulzor afrutado que recuerda nuevamente al caramelo. A esto le sigue un amargor equilibrado, seco y acafetado. Muy rica.

pours black, clear, with ruby showing through the edges. Aroma is caramel and raisins, stone fruit. Flavors are toastier, with just a bit of roasted malt, coffee, and baking chocolate with a bit of raisin. Delightfully complex.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml. bottle, pours, a black colour with a big head and there’s always a ring and lace. Smell of chocolate, coffee, caramel, liquorice and some burnt wood. Creamy palate, so not full, taste is the same as smell, burnt notes more accentuated, but all is there: chocolate, coffee, caramel, and liquorice. Bitterswwet finish.

Although somewhat overrated, the Taddy Porter is definitely a good beer. Not that complex and a quite feminine version of a classic danish porter. I use it in food alot and it compliments the fatter food like duck or goose, but even with liver and onions this brew seems to shine. Some liqurice, some malt with a little tickle on your tongue. A little weak on alcohol to be a real porter, but good on a everyday basis with that perfect blend of bitterness and sweetness only a porter will deliver. Aftertaste...what? Where? Recommended if you find a good bargain, but go for a real Dane if you have the opportunity.

Ristet i næsen, malt og en del chokolade i munden. God bitterhed og eftersmag. Ok mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is of roasted grain, coffee, chocolate syrup. Nice super dark ruby/black pour with small khaki head, leaving lacing. Perfect balance of sweet, bitter, and slight tangy sourness. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, complex character, light carbonation, long finish. Refreshing yet rich enough to sip and enjoy without being too heavy. It has all the makings of a classic porter, highly recommend.

Pours dark with a thin head, deep rich burnt coffee and malt flavours. Strong taste but not a lot of alcohol. I liked it.

550ml bottle at home. Very dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt and earthy hops. Taste has a chunk of dark chocolate bitterness, then some white sugar sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture. A bit fizzy, but otherwise very nice.
