Theydon_Bois (12691) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Keg at Smoky Mountain Turkey Creek, 16/02/15. Dark chestnut brown with a moderate light beige head that retains well. Nose is caramel, nutty, vanilla, toasted brown sugars. Taste comprises pecan nut, caramel, toffee, sweet licks, malt tones. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Mediocre porter lacks both depth and direction.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pours crimson brown with a rocky tan head. The aroma has cocoa, cream, caramel, vanilla, apples and a light bit of sourness. It has a medium body that’s crisp and has frothy soft carbonation. The flavor begins with dry milk chocolate, roasty malt, light spice and vanilla. The finish has some earthy hops and a berry fruit sort of thing. Decent porter.

Decent but not great. I really like porters to have more complexity than this.

beechner224 (922) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2014
On tap, last beer of the bunch. Pours a dark brown, with white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, tad roasty. Taste is chocolate, bitter coffee, a little to light bodied, and could use more chocate and less bitterness. Not too bad.

radio_nowhere (1143) - Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Draft sample at the Gatlinburg brewpub, dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee and some smoke. Taste adds notes of milk chocolate, some nuttiness and a dark fruitiness. Medium light body, medium carbonation, rich tasting, sweet with roasty finish. My second fav in this sampling, chocolaty light porter.
