Poured a deep dark ruby with a small head. No oxidation present, which is always a plus with a Sam Smith. Roasty, perfect carbonation, and a great creamy texture. Love it.

These Yorkshiremen often have a problem with many things, espcecially cruicket. Many an Aussie has gone over there to teach them a few things about the fine art of leather v willow only to be shown as the superior beings. So, we can smack a ball around. Who does the better porter? No brainer. Skill, experience and ingredients all add up to the presentation of a superlative beer. Love the dark and chewy stuff.

Dark, black appearance. A bit thin up front, but theres a nice bitter coffee like aftertaste. Would probably make a good session beer.

This is exactly what I expected a porter from samuel smith to taste like. Very smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. The taste and aroma are light and enjoyable. Sometimes it is nice to drink a good beer that isnt full of incredibly robust complex flavors.

Crockett (1111) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2004
Pours deep brown/red. Big brown head with lots of lace. Brown sugar, light nutty toast aroma. Sour and salt. Earthy and chocolate. Yeasty sour. I assume this bottle had been hanging around for a while. It tasted and smelled a bit stale. Still, very good.

This is a pretty good porter but I love other styles a little better. there is some kind of texture that turns me off to this, something kind of mettalic in the taste. Cant quite put my finger on it, but still a rreally good porter

Great porter. Pours dark black with a burnt brown head. Laces nicely. Nose is deep and strong, with roasts smells and alcohol dominating. Taste is smooth and pleasant. Dry, roasty, chacolates and coffee coming through. Finish is slow and easy. A great beer all around.
