This by far is my favorite samuel smith product, the only thing I enjoy equally by them is the oatmeal stout! Great Stuff!

What a treat! By far the most complex Porter Iíve tried. Gorgeous dark color with mahogany highlights. Nice head burnt flour colored. Aromas? Where do I start? Citrus, malt, berries, herbs, coffee and cream, chocolate. The flavor is well-balanced coffee, butterscotch, oatmeal, fig and grapefruit, medium roasted malt. Consistently flavorful from swig to swallow. Solid mouthfeel. It will take several more to get both hands around everything in this one. Buy it if you can!

Absolutely my benchmark for sweeter style porters, (Fullerís for the dryer style). Perfect color, perfect balance, finish, etc. etc. Has a candied apple sweetness hiding behind the slight smokiness and wonderful roasted malt flavor. If you donít like this, just stop drinking beer.

This is the perfect Porter,it may very well be the best one on the planet.I envy The British who can get this on tap.The Nose is heavenly with a smell like a ripe pear.It pours dark amber opaque with a lovely mocha colored head.The hops blend is perfect well balanced and full bodied.It has just enough bitter to balance the sweet cholocate malts.I love Porters and this is best Iíve ever had,fabulous.The palate is slightly effervescent leaving your mouth watering with a brilliant and electric aftertaste.Bravo Samuel Smith Taddy Porter.A true Brewmaster made this amazing Porter.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Like the box of Pandora, you dont know what you would encounter drinking this beer. The word caleidoscopic made beer, so many aromas and flavours in a very drinkable beer.

Are you kidding me? Thereís seriously zero reason to even read the reviews for this beer. If youíre on this site and youíve gotten this far without drinking this, youíre a damn fool. Go buy this beer and drink it.
