Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good head. Mostly lasting. Nice red-brown colour. Malty caramellic aroma. very smoked flavor. Long finish and oily palate. Nice beer but not my favorite. Dedollewaitor (16419) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
Black with little white head. Lively carbonated for a porter. The malts are very roasted. Taste of chocolate, coffee & liquorice. Quite smokery as well. Bitter pleasant finish! jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2006
16.9oz bottle: Pours a black color, big tan head, good lacing, diminishing. Extremey malty aroma, coffee. Light tasting, bitter, acid, cofffe taste. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Very tasty porter, not too strong tasting with a smooth finish, uncommon for a porter style beer. Probably due to it’s lower alcohol content. Brantírn (6) - Montréal, QUEBEC!, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2006 does not count
Wow! Ma première véritable porter anglaise et je suis tout sauf déçu... Un arôme de torréfaction doux mais au combien plaisant, rappellant grains de café enrobés de chocolat. Un petit arôme fumé à peine perceptible est aussi présent, avant que le légérement épicé du fuggles vienne faire sa place.. Une grande bière!

bottle. I had such high hopes. This was good but not the 4.06 average I was hoping for. Poured near black with moderate brown head. Nice carbonation. tastes of molasses and caramel. kingdavid (18) - Nebraska, USA - MAY 10, 2006
favortie beer for awhile, till I got ahold of hops. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2006
smooth, enjoyable, almost fun.
this may be the best beer to hand someone who says they enjoy porters but haven’t had what London has to offer. Europe may have gotten something right with this one.
Nice dark colour beer with tan head. Chocalate and coffee flavors. Smooth. Very nice beer. dret (22) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Very black, delicious looking dark beer. Smells of chocolate. Sticky sweet. Light hops. Choco and coffee flavors. Palate is just a little bit thinner than desirable. Beautiful overall. pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Dark red-brown to black with a significant, though fading dense head. Upon cracking open the bottle, I was struck by the dark fruit fragrances, particularly of sweet prunes and figs. Directly over my glass I notice dark rich malty molasses and the slightest bit of roasted coffee. I can hardly remember drinking anything quite so smooth. the carbonation is so soft leading to a delicate creaminess that few brews attain. This smoothness is mirrored in the flavor profile. Sweet dark fruits and gentle chocolate malts avail themselves with only the slightest bit of bitterness, eminating from a conservative floral hopping and a subtle charcoal roastiness. A slight hint of lactic acid helps to balance this sweetness in fashion similar to colas. The lingering flavors are first charcoal and then slowly coming back to those prunes and figs. This is really a fabulous beer, and easily my favorite porter.
