From tap. Pours deep amber golden, small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty and caramelish malty. Toasted malty finish. Toasted malty and caramelish finish. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
On cask. Incredibly light! Fruited honeydew, pears, rough paper, flourless cocoa cake, dusty finish. English style porter, they said. Very different from the bland and watery English style porters I have come to expect. Well, well done! whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Triumph New Hope. Cask-conditioned. Translucent, rufous-brown body with a cascading, ripply mocha-colored head. Aroma of bread crusts and dark chocolate with elements of black licorice, warm raisins and subtle roast. Nice impression of smooth, debittered malts. Very nice cask porter. jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2005
On tap at New Hope. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Mild roasted malt aroma with a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor was also mild roasted malt with some nuts. A bit thin, but easy drinking. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2005
I found my batch of this a little funky. A bit of a vegetable taste was in it and I’m not sure why. The pour was lighter then usual. Light brown instead of dark. The chocolate and coffee were in the aroma and taste but it was a bit funky for some reason. I’ll have to revisit this.

On tap (cask) at the New Hope location. On the menu as the "Porter". Porus a dark brown almost black with a small tan lacing head. A great looking beer. Aroma was nutty, milk chocolate and coffee. Flavor is very smooth and I was picking up pretty much the same stuff in the flavor as I did the aroma. A solid Porter. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2004
I’ll also vouch that this was labelled "Beer Engine" Porter at the New Hope Triumph, possibly because of the rail cars tended outside the brewery’s balcony. Watery beer but delicious. Red wine-like color. More palpable for session rounds than the Imperial Stout, certainly. willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2004
09.25.04 Handpump @ NH. Root beer brown, big, foamy head. Light roastiness throughout with banana and nut hints. Soft bodied and rather sweet. They call it "dark, brown, and smooth." Indeed, this is a porter for the masses. tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2004
UPDATED: APR 24, 2005 On tap in New Hope. Robust? They didn?t use that adjective at New Hope and I don?t think it applies either. Smooth, roasted espresso bean stout. Dark brown, but not opaque. Coffee flavors. Mild with a smokey aftertaste. A good porter, but Robust? No.
Had it on the handpump--very light colored for a porter. hopdog (13374) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2004
On tap (cask) at Triumph in New Hope. Cellar temperature Poured a dark black with an averaged sized tan head. Subtle aromas and flavors of chocolate and roasted malts. Light bitter finish. Nice, laid back porter.
