This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Aroma was ok. I donít know what a "old style porter" is supposed to taste like, all I know is that I didnít like it. Way too sweet with a strong maltiness that overwhelms the palate. I donít know what it is about this brewery and malt. This and the IPA are like watered down barley wineís! Maybe they donít fair well travelling all the way from England to the USA.

Dacrza (582) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2015
DATE TASTED: April 18, 2015... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick.. OCCASION: a nightcap after celebrating bro-in-law Gilís 40th anniversary... APPEARANCE: pitch black body as expected; creamy, substantial head that settles to a 1/2 inch; laces in swaths of brown--and the bottle scores points too... AROMA: definite toffee, burnt cereal malts and chocolate; peat and smoke elements as well... PALATE: a creamy, medium-bodied, mouth-filling porter that finishes with subtlety; mildly active... TASTE: luscious toasted cereal malts and possible Columbus hops create a full-bodied, sweet, semi-lactic taste; enough earthy qualities to create a warming experience... OVERALL: a strong, enjoyable porter that contains all expected aspects of the style; the ABV % is adequate but not noteworthy; St. Peterís offers another style-appropriate bottle, with cola and peat stoking a working manís drink...

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a tiny beige head. Nose of caramel and roasted malts. Taste is of caramel, coffee, roasted malts and oak. The finish is bitter with an alcoholic note. A nice and complex porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (470) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of cacao, dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste is more of the same with a bitter roasted coffee-like finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad but not as good as the cream stout.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark Brown in colour, 2 finger off white head. Aroma of malts, dark fruits, berries, coffee, dark chocolate. Much the same on the taste, perhaps with a touch of lemon. Complex!
