Classic, ideal porter. Pour is black that turns lighter to a brown hue as it thins. Nose is sweet of toffee, coffee, and mainly chocolate. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. Flavor is lavishly creamy and sweet with chocolate malts dominating. Hops are negligible in this porter, but it is so enjoyable that you forget about them and smile.

A very good porter, traditional in style. Dark brown in color. On the nose: definite roasted & chocolate malts & a fruity essence though slight to me. Medium in body and in holding a head and maintains a particular drinkability. Good to see a porter that remains a porter - not a stout or imperial stout.

Bottle. Very nice, sweetish liquorice aroma. The colour is almost black with a red hue. Nice, semi-creamy, light brown head. Nice liquorice/salt/coffee flavour. Very late coffee aftertaste.

Poured with large light brown creamy head with some large bubbles in amont the tiny ones. It was mostly diminishing and exhibited some very nice lacing. Can only see through this brew if I hold it right up to a light source and then it has a very dark dark plum type of color. Looks very nice. Aroma is of coffee, raisin, chocolate, and licorice. Initial flavor was lightly dry and slightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter and drying with a nice long duration. Great aftertaste. Body is full and texture is syrupy with soft carbonation. Finish has a very very light alcohol presence. I don’t taste a lot of complexity here. The beer is very up-front and candid about what it wants to taste like. Palate is exceptionally smooth. Very nice and well balanced porter.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2006 Bottle. Dark brown, thick tan head. Malty aroma with coffee, chocolate and caramel notes. What I really enjoy about this is the awesome taste of English licorice. Excellent porter

BeerandBlues2 (12335) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle. Pours deep brown, almost black with an edgy tan head and tiny fizzy bubbles on top. Fragrant floral hop and sweet caramel chocolate aroma, slightly roaste malt and molasses notes. Dark and bitter roasted coffee, chocolate malt, a bit smoky with fruit hops, chalky chocolate and a lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Dark and thin, silky and fizzy palate.

Robe noire aux reflets brun acajou surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes de café et de diacétyl. Saveurs de caramel, de beurre, de sirop d’érable et de chocolat.

Pours black with a large brown frothy head. Very chocolately aroma with caramel, coffee, vanilla, and floral hops. Excellent flavors of fudge, coffee, and licorice along with very well balanced hops bitterness. Extremely smooth and creamy on the palate with a very pleasurable mouthfeel, but it is a bit thin. Overall, I can tell why this porter is rated so high. I’ll have another!
