A: nuts and english hops. A: pours a dark maroon with a thick dirty white head. Some lacing left. T: caramel and malt. P: like a lot of SA’s beers, on the thin side. O: could drink a couple but lacks the umph of a good porter.
Cerveza color café-negruzco corona de espuma de burbujas compactas de mediana retención. Aromas a café, dulce y cierto toque terroso. Al paladar consistencia cremosa aún así bebible con notas a café, dulce, sutil chocolate. Muy agradable cerveza.

Bottle. Pours dark brown-black with tan head and lacing. Nose of bread crust, toffee, and chocolate cake. Malty bread crust followed by toffee and chocolate notes. Some earthiness and subtle citrus hops in the finish. Medium body; drinkable but still substantial. My favorite American porter. Excellent.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you John! A nice well done porter, wish for a bit less body on this porter but good nonetheless. geologyguy (1645) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Very light dark malt smell but of higher alcohol, hoppy flavor all around...front and back...one dimentional dark malt and hops is all there is...bitterness mellows with time...so slightly better then ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Posted from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Thea appearance is a brown color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt, nuts and vanilla. The taste of cocoa, malt and nuts are blended well with the vanilla. An outstanding porter.

Light fruity raisin aroma, white head with nice lacing. Clear coffee color. Malty flavor and balanced hop profile. Clean finish. Weevo (176) - Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. Chocolate and caramel aroma follows thru to taste along with a little nuttiness some carbonation and a bitter chocolate finish. Pours a dark black with tan head. Nice lighter porter, very drinkable.

Great porter! Not too heavy and fairly easy to drink, Samuel adams makes very solid beers, they might be big now bit still craft enough

Pours translucent sepia with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is not strong, but promises roast malt and hints of caramel and chocolate. Flavor comes forth much stronger, presenting roast malt, woody, caramel, chocolate and nutty tones. Mouthfeel features average body but plenty of strong fizz. Happy New Year!

A subdued aroma of chocolate pours a clear color no head. A dry feel without much of a taste. Bitter chocolate finish.
