otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Appearance: solid black – not oily but charcoal and burnt. Khaki head is thin with scattered patches of bubbles. Smidges of lace inch their way up sides of my glass. Swirls with lace and thick sides.
phaleslu (10673) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Nose: burnt toast – dry, crisp, and wholly black. Dark fruits in the back. Dry unadulterated cacao dust. Burnt raisins. Dark fruit stones and dry almonds. Twigs, dirt, and black earth. Charcoal ash.
Palate: a touch smoky. Dark fruits in the finish. Burnt and ashen dry woods. Sweetness of dark fruits and black strap along the sides. Pits and stones in the breath. Smoke and treacle weave in and out. Plums, grapes, and Washington apple skins.
Final Thoughts: wowsers. Serious flavor packed into a seriously quaffable traditional dry stout. Guinness? Pft! I’ll have my Porterhouse Plain Porter and drink it too.
On nitro at The Royale. Served in a pint glass. Pours a coffee brown color with a cascading hot chocolate-colored, creamy, soft head that leaves heavy lace in the glass. Aroma of dark and baker’s chocolate, coffee, cream, and toasted sugar. Flavor is lighter than the nose- roast, chocolate, coffee, and rust. Light-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Roasty on the back of the palate. Nice, simple, and straightforward. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Black colored pour. Large sized creamy off-white head that sticks around for the entire drink and leaves a healthy dose of lacing. Roasty aroma with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Roasty flavor. Dry. Very good. AR (1002) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Not what I was hoping for. This was my first Porterhouse, and I guess after their claims of being better than Guinness, I had my hopes up. Sorry....give me a Guiness, anyday. This taste like an amature’s attempt at a stout. It’s a little rough, has an alcohol bite, and a yeasty peat flavor. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2011

From tab. Small Guinness like café late like colored head that mostly lasted. Fair display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was cold coffee, roasted malty notes, chocolate and light hoppy notes. Very drinkable. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry filling texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Coffee and light roasted malty bitter finish. Quite nice. johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle. Dark with a small creamy head. Thinnish body with a trace of bitterness. Claims to be the best stout in the world-in your dreams!

Bottle. About 1 month past ’best before’. Pours a dark ruby/brown with a beige/light brown head. Sweet, roasted aroma with a faint metallic overtone. Flavour is roasted and a bit tart with a metallic note. Feels a bit watery though. Bitter, roasted finish with the bitterness lingering, accompanied by notes of hops and grass. Remote coffee note develops as it warms. Overall a good, solid light stout with a good drinkability. 20.09.11.stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2011
