COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With an enticing aroma, not unlike rich cocoa, this thoroughly authentic British porter satisfies with a full body and subtle finish. With its lush, dark malt character, this deliciously complex ale offers flavors of bittersweet chocolate and toffee.

Nice roasted flavor. VERY drinkable. Good session beer. This beer is packed with flavor, but not too heavy.

Victory has changed their porter slightly this year (02). It is much tastier with a heavy coffee/cocoa taste that gets your buds singing. This is a truly excellent porter, although a little light in color, the flavor is big. You have to stick your nose in a pint and get a whiff - awesome aroma.

Porters and stouts along with the seasonal bocks and fest beers are my most favorite styles. So I seek them out, this is a very could porter with a rich roasted malt aroma and has that semi-sweet slightly dry finish that I crave. Decent hops add a good balnce to the roasted grains.

Tasting notes from 1 pint at the Mecca (~ 1 week prior to Memorial Day ’03)... Giant muscular malty mouthfeel from the start, with hints of fine chocolate. Please oh please Mr. Covaleski -- BOTTLE THIS!

A good porter, very drinkable with nice sweet roasted coffee flavors. Not the best but a good effort.

Probably because it was on draught, it looked more like a stout than a porter. Smells likes ash, tastes roasted and ash-like. Little notes of cocoa. Smooth and full-flavored body. Dry, and pleasantly not too heavy.
