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.

60minuteman (717) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Dark charcoal black, minimal tan head. Aroma of roast, hops, coffee, bits of cacao, malt and barley. Flavor is similar. Earthy porter, very good balance. Can get more flavor from other porters but the Taddy brings another element to it. It is sharp, balanced and clean it tastes just like it should.

500ml bottle from The Liquor Cabinet in Michigan. Pour nut brown with a 2cm nice tan head. Aroma of Malt caramel, toffee and dark candy. Taste is medium sweetness, light bitter and malty. Full to medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation and a medium malty finish. This is a great example of a very well done traditional Porter. Cheers
