Not your typical porter as I have experienced them to be.This was to my liking as I like a very smooth brew that goes down easy with no bitterness or sharp aftertaste.Good lacing.Great stonebottle.

jimhilt (2377) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours with a two-finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Deep red/amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is malty. Starts with a roasted hazelnut sweetness and finishes smooth with no bitter aftertaste or hints of alcohol. A very good porter, quite different from typical American porters - Stone, Heavyweight, Redhook etc. 750ml bottle for $10.99 at Hoosick St Discount Bev. Troy, NY.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 12, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small head of light brown fine to medium bubbles which left a nice lacing as it receded. It has a cloudy brown body with fine particulate. It has a smooth malty flavor but is a little weak for a porter. Very smooth though and I found myself liking the flavor and the taste, just hard to call it a porter.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 No#50. This was coming towards the end of the trip and was had with diner on the plast nite in pelgrom. The aroma is a seriously malty beast. Taste has to warm a litle before can be fully appreciated. Malty, nutty, dark fruits start to come out with soem chocolate towards the end. Seems to be missing something, maybe a little more body is needed, excellent beer with diner all the same, and great bottle it comes in too. RERATE: Back at Pelgrom, Pelgromstraat, Antwerp. Just and alround excellent beer, but perhaps the setting helps a bit.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2006
Ceramic bottle. Ruby red colour (alt. reddish brown), big offwhite head (no matter how you poured it, it foamed lots). Aroma is licorace, yeast, malts and caramel. Licorace, malts, yeast and caramel is in the flavour. Very smoothly mixed. Alcohol brings a bit sweetness to the whole, but is not disturbing.

Aged almost ten years. Lots of caramel. Tastes like an old ale. Some resin. Aged much more gracefully than I would have expected. Rated 4/16/10

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Deep mahogany reddish brown with a gigantic tan head that left good lace and a solid film. Caramel malt aromas were strong and accompanied by dark fruit like figs and dates. Buttery and caramel malt flavors up front with a sharp hops bite. Belgian yeast and nuttiness are also present. Medium to full body, nicely carbonated, buttery smooth mouthfeel, and a lingering caramel sweetness.
