UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Again with the excellent products from Samuel Smith. Delicious. Also has that slight buttery flavor all their beers have. Serving: Bottle

aleanguz91 (125) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - NOV 1, 2017
Acquistata @MercadoCentral in Valencia (Spain). Nero impenetrabile. Schiuma nocciola spumosa e persistente. Al naso note tostate e maltate, con punta acidula e sentori di frutta secca e prugne secche. In bocca note di cioccolato fondente, caffè, zucchero di canna, toffee, ma il tutto poco pronunciato in confronto a altre Porter. Corpo esile. Texture quasi oleosa. Carbonazione medio-bassa. Finale pulito. Tutto sommato beverina.

Ruikt niet zo sterk. Smaakt prima. Niet super, wel gewoon lekker. Wat nog meer.

From Jun 2007 Purchased at Liquor Shed in Casper for US$3.70 This pours from 550ML bottle a very nice amber with a large head of foam that *also* just won't quit. And yeah, there's plenty of lacing there to give this Nutbrown Ale very good marks for appearance. The smell has a sweetish nose to it. I'm getting notes of sweet malt and some fruit. The taste has a big sweet malt profile up front and some nuttiness in the background. A few more sips in and I get some chocolate flavour and some hop zest that balances out the sweetness very nicely. Man, this is heck of a drinker and at 5%abv, this is one fine session brew. Oh, now I'm getting a touch of molasses and more of the lemon zest. Wow. This is another Samuel Smith offering that I could drink all night long. Well done! Highly recommended!! Bottom line: Samuel Smiths certainly can crank out the fine brews. No wonder they are my favourite brewery from the UK!

Отличный классический портер. В аромате как будто чувствуется алкоголь. На цвет очень темный с тонкой кофейной пенкой. Вкус классического портера, правда показалось что он слишком сильно карбонизированный.

kaserov (993) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 16, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (grumosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Malta torrefacta, tostada, fruto seco, chocolate y algo de metal en nariz. Torrefacta y chocolatosa en boca, con toques de fruto seco y fruta madura. Final torrefacto, con retrogusto a café y postgusto algo metálico. Bien pero excesivamente metálica, bajo mi punto de vista.

hohops (1096) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Appearance- very dark brown/black, a 3-finger thick light brown head which hangs around. Aroma- chocolate malt, coffee, toffee, hint of leather, toasty malt. Taste- smooth chocolate, dark malt, hint of burnt toast and smoke, caramel, biscuity malt, coffee, a bit of treacle toffee in the finish. Smooth and satisfying mouthfeel. Very nice.

Creamy and smooth. A nicely well-balanced Porter. I quite like it. It goes down very easily but has a bit of a metallic aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mariuspoenari (2989) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2017
Very dark brown pour with a tall tan head. Notes of chocolate, roast, molasses, brown sugar, light pine and bittering hops. A bit watery, but otherwise decent porter.
