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.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Distinctive medicine style bottle. More amber in color than most porters. Head is a soapy tan with plenty of retention. Aroma is a delightful dark fruit. Plums and raisins abound and a hint of smoke is an undertone. Flavor is more tart than expected and plenty smoky. It is a sweet beer, though, and the malt takes some different turns. Interestingly, the malt flavor that is most common appears while licking the lips after a drink. Dark fruit can be found but it is underneath. Chocolate and coffee are also found. More of the dark fruit makes its way to the taste buds late in the glass. Mostly this porter has a smoky tart flavor and a little less hops would be an improvement. It is an interesting beer to rate in that I really like everything about it except the flavor. The flavor is good but after the other categories it is a disappointment.

Very dark deep red, creamy beige head. Slightly metallic smell that disappears as the beer warms. Aromas of malts, burnt sugar, sweet fruits (raisins). Tastes of toasted malts with a light smoked note and dark fruits.

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Belle bouteille. Arômes de malts et presque café. Malheureusement peu de corps, un peu trop légère, pas assez d’alcool. Bière plutôt plate.

ARMed (590) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
A beautiful smooth porter that has a very smooth velvety taste. The porter has an exceptional creamy finish and a perfect dark amber appearance. Perfect lacing and an outstanding overall appearance. Finish is slightly bitter which balances well with maltiness of the porter.

Brewdork (205) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2014
500 ml bottle poured into English pint. Deep cola color with a dense khaki head that settles into a silky film leaving slight lacing. Light, slightly tangy roasty coffee aroma. Well-rounded toffee flavor with slight licorice notes and a nice bitterness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Overall better than I was expecting and a nice example of an English porter.

angel77 (517) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2014
Botella de 50 cl tomada en el lúpulo en marzo de 2013. Porter con algo de sabor, aunque en conjunto es bastante ligera y suave. 5.1 Vol que no le dan mucho cuerpo y carácter. Se queda muy suave pero con ligeros toques tostados al final que hacen que mas o menos merezca la pena. Cuerpo suave y algo cremoso. Bastante suave siguiendo la linea de la casa. Tirando a buena.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from the St Peter’s Brewery. Poured dark ruby with a dense beige head. Somewhat odd aroma of cream soda, ash and Oxo. Mouth feel was medium to full. Initial flavours of coffee, smoke and vanilla. Burnt toast on the palate with some balanced cocoa and brown sugar.
