Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO (but I just saw it at Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa). Pours lightly ruddy amber with a transient off-white head. Aroma of roast malt with a touch of chocolate. Med body. Flavor definitely starts out with chocolate. There’s malt sweetness, but there seems to be fruity hop enough to balance. Finiances with a light chocolate aftertaste. capoccetta (171) - roma, ITALY - MAR 20, 2011

Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

"Porterhouse Porterhouse Red", really? Maybe dropping the second Porterhouse and adding Ale to the end would make sense. 11.2 oz. bottle shared by Matt at The Royale, purchased at either TWCP or Randall’s. Pours a clear, rich golden color with a finger-thick off-white head. Aroma of grains, crackers, straw, and grass. Flavor pretty much followed suit. There isn’t much going on here. Light-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a dry, grainy mouthfeel. Sessionable and forgettable.

Bottle [330ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear copper-gold with a small diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma of caramel malt, a touch of sweetness, fruit and toffee. Flavour of caramel malt, very light hops and some fruit. Average biiter finish. Average bodied. An average, simple beer, though it’s better then some Reds I’ve had.

Pours amber; head is thick and foamy, like fluffy clouds; foamy lacing as well. Pleasant caramel notes; also hints of wheat and smoke. Balanced taste with a nod toward the bitter hops. A bit harsh going down. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Draft @ Porterhouse brewery tap, Temple Bar Dublin. Sparkler tap gives it that predictably even head. Is copper-red. Mild aroma, because served too cold! Graham cracker crumbs characterize the distinctive tasty malts. Spekulaas, and a lingering toasty finish. Hints of caramel. Quite nice. gunnar (9087) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours amber reddish with a big creamy nearly yellow head. Aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is a tad bitter floral hops in the foreground, more malts in the background, ends long medium sweet fruity, quite good. Medium bodied.
