This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

had a bottle of this in berlin and it was a real relief to have a non-lager. ruby colour and a lovely beige head. the aroma of a burned-out fire. plenty of burnt bitterness. nice stuff

Very dark brown with a small, quickly diminishing beige head. Nice complex aroma of dark fruit, smokey wood, and honey. Slightly metallic flavor with dark fruit, bitter chocolate and smoked wood. Fairly thin feel, nice moderate carbonation. Not bad, but I could do without the metallic taste.

Dark brown with a small tan head. Smoky roasted malt aroma. Flavor of roasted malt, smoke, and bitter dark chocolate. A little thin.

tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2004
Roasted malts, chocolate in the aroma. Clear, but almost opaque dark ruby brown with tan head that recedes to decent cover with some coating on the glass. Very complex taste has plenty of roasted malts without overwhelming the subtler flavours - chocolate, sulfur, salt, some herbal notes and perhaps a touch of smoke. Fair bitterness marks the finish. Medium-full body, decent carbonation engages the tongue. Bottle.

Pours a dark borwn/black. No head. aroma is dry, grass, malt. Flavor is dark roasted malt. Notes of choclate, and bitter. oily slick mouthful. Thanks to MIBRomeo

thick and dark pour w/ a soap bublly head.. came in a cool looking bottle, smelled of carmel, coffee, and something earthy (grass maybe?)... the palate was mildly creamy a touch bitter, and had some good carbonation, the flavor was a little lacking for a porter but had the normal coffee w/ some maltiness and a bitter aftertaste. Overall nothing outstanding about this porter, but not a bad beer.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Slightly bitter taste with an extremely odd after-taste. The entire time I was drinking it I was trying to figure it out with no success.

(on bottle) When I wanna go for a old-style porter, this is what I aim for. Smells like a cola, has loads of roat too. Mouth is thin and watery; OK in this case. And a fantastic long and dry coffee finish. Good for me.
