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.

Kobal (64) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours brown, nearly black with a thin head. Nose is licorice and coffee. Taste is the same plus baking chocolate and some nuttiness and a little umami twang. Light bodied compared to most porters, but I dont see that as a detriment. A classic English porter.

chimayx (106) - FRANCE - MAY 2, 2017
Une excellente porter tout fait traditionnelle. Belle couleur brune sombre tirant sur le noir, avec des reflets chocolats. Armes bien sur marqus par les malts: malts grills, notes de chocolat, de cacao. Le grill reste en arrire plan et les malts sont assez doux, typique de lquilibre aromatique dune porter. Notes galement de fruits, comme des baies noires, et de houblons terreux. Bon quilibre entre les malts et les armes de fruits, et galement dans les gouts et le corps, qui sont doux en restant secs, amres en restant fruits et ronds. Trs peu de bulles, un corps de densit moyenne et hautement buvable! Une porter sans la grande complexit des exemples modernes, mais parfaitement ralise et trs agrable

ozzatoadisback (156) - ITALY - APR 30, 2017
Almost black. Small brownish/dark yellow head, nice retention and lacing though. Moderately intense aroma of bitter chocolate and dark fruits, with hints of coffee. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with roasted malts, dark fruits (raisins), chocolate and coffee hints. Finish is also bittersweet with a slight bitter edge. Light to medium bodied with low carbonation, slightly silky mouthfeel. A balanced porter with a bit of complexity to it, but nothing impressing.

JFGrind (2038) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2017
St. Peters bottle is unique. Never thought I would read the words Gibbstown (NJ) on a U.K. beer label. Porter has a reddish highlight, light bodied, roast malt and bitterness. With two beers blended together I think it adds to this Porters complexity.

mecafilo (218) - Perugia, ITALY - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle @ home. Pours with an almost black colour, small diminishing head. Aroma is chocolatey and slightly coffey, but quite faint. Taste is medium sweet, slightly bitter, slightly sour. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation (quite fizzy for a dark brew).

Hoppy; earthy and grassy hops. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Sour (slightly bitter) hops and fruit over roasty malts throughout. Nice Porter! (2010-04)

superspak (5406) - Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2016
500 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 3/24/2016. Pours crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, herbal, and pepper; with lighter notes of smoke, char, nuttiness, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, herbal, and pepper; with lighter notes of smoke, char, nuttiness, dark fruit, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar, toasted dark bread, smoke, char, herbal, pepper, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast/hop malt/bitterness balance; some light lingering hop/char astringency near the end of the glass. Light-moderate dryness from hop/char bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is an excellent English porter. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Seems like a cross between Brown/Robust porters in style. A very enjoyable offering.

kajser27 (1748) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 28, 2016
Ruby to black colored, small beige head, not very lasting. Aroma is of dark chocolate, some coffee, bit apple and dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet malt, dark chocolate, coffee, light apple and bit dark fruit, moderate- roasty bitterness, dryish finish, decent lasting choco finish. Meidum bodied, soft carbonation, bit creamy. Not bad... (bottle, Beer Club Pula)
