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.

This porter is so easy drinking its ridiculous. Pours a light black with a surprisingly thin head. Taste is incredible. Sweet, creamy chocolate and molasses dominate and it goes down like a milkshake. Tremendous beer.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 This is an excellent porter, in contrast to the same brewerys Golden Ale (not good). It has good body and richness with a nice palate, with a good dark appearance ad nice aroma. The flavour is very nice, rich and chocolaty without being too chocolaty and one-sinded. There is a nice, though mild, complexity and smokiness and it is extremely drinkable. It also has good foam and lace

Nice dark color but the head is gone quickly. Aroma is dark malts and caramel, deep toffee, some maple syrup. Flavor: Starts as a sweet, rich, malty brew that quickly turns into a very complex and pleasant, mature and flowery beverage with an extremely balanced and tasty end. This is an excellent beer, from one of the best breweries in the world.

A delicious, aged, smoky porter. Great looking bottle. Classy. Not overtly sweet. Suprisingly smooth. Perfectly bitter!

drpimento (3222) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Solid. Pours with a rich, creamy, foamy head and lots of lingering lace. Complex nose of dark malts, dark sugars, a little hop, yeast, and divinity! Been a while since I las had it. Too bad for me. Anyway, flavors in a big body of the aroma but much more all the way around.

Dobry Porter, tradycyjny, palony, dośc mocno jak na portera, lekka słodycz (chyba lukrecja) sie wyczuwa. Wspaniale sie uzupelniaja te dwa przeciwstawne smaki. Zapach palonego slodu unosil sie nad piana, ktora byla mocna i trala i zbina drobnoziarnista. Kolor machoniowo-brunatny

This old style porter is superb. It has a medium head and a very dark color. The caramelized malt is rich and subtly sweet and it is perfectly balanced with the good hops from England. The aftertaste is clean. I love this porter.

Appearance: very dark brown clear colour, some little head which dissipates quickly. Some carbonation is visible albeit not a lot. Aroma: very nice, complex aroma, intense nutty aroma and very biscuity. Complex old ale character is noticeable. Caramel and chocolate notes. Very nice. Flavour: rather mild but complex. Nutty and a bit spicy, some biscuit malt. Some hops shines through as does some bitterness but only very mildly. Really great porter.
