Heavy, smooth and very true to the Porter taste . Drink slow and enjoy the porter lethe (177) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2005
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. FuntonBunton (61) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2005

Dark brown with a dark beige head. Very malty aroma with dark chocolate notes. A little caramel sweetness in the taste, followed by roasted coffee and medium bitterness at the end. newtrip (54) - USA - NOV 8, 2005
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.
