12 oz bottle from Total Wine and More in Short Pump, VA This was truly a pleasure from the first sip to the last swallow. The aroma of chocolate malts, roasted malts and coffee greet you. The rich flavors of this porter are amazing. I am hopeful I can find a six pack of these babies. The porter has a medium body with soft carbonation. The porter finishes cleanly with you coming back for more. tapefuzz (1634) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2018
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roast, coffee, light chocolate, and earth. Taste is sweet and roasty; roast, coffee, toast, grain, and just a hint of burnt sugar. Medium body. Average carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. snoworsummer (7663) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2018
Draft at the brewery. Pours dark burgundy brown with a bubbly tan head. Tastes like dark roasted malt, burnt toast, black coffee, and earth. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like dark roasted malt, burnt toast, earth, and black coffee. Jabah (2080) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2018
This is my first introduction to Smuttynose, so decided to get the porter which had good ratings....and I was in the mood to try a good affordable porter. This beer has quality, but I dunno if it's top of the line. Has a very dark-near black appearance. Not much of a head, which is a thin mocha color. Lots of coffee going on in the flavor, maybe a little too much for my preference, but a good solid porter overall. For $5.99 a 6'er, Yuengling brews a porter which is a less coffee'd out version and almost half the price...or I'd spend a little more next time and get the Mocha Porter from Rogue which doesn't seem to have as strong a coffee flavor. If you like coffee beers though, this is definitely worth the try. GregMooreNH (1761) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Pours black with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is toffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate, warming to strong roast and coffee flavors. Finish is smooth and light roast. While not in the same class as their S'Muttonator or Baltic Porter, this is still among the best Smuttynose offerings.

Piana drobna kremowa, redukuje się do krążka, zdobi szkło. Kolor ciemny, pod światło rubin. Aromat ciemne słody, gorzka czekolada, kawa, przyjemny. Smak uderza gorzka czekolada, potem kawa, pełne w odczuciu z słodką owocową nutą ALE-ową i lekkim kwaskiem od palonych słodów. Goryczka wyraźna średnia do wysokiej, alkohol ukryty. Piwo złożone bardzo dobre lecz nie porywa jest zbyt grzeczne Zilverenmaan (560) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2017
