Leighton (19914) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Draft at the brewery tap during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear brown with a creamy, tan head. Tasty, with some dried brown bread, moderate earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Decently balanced in the finish, with some notches of chocolate, more earth, toasty bready malts. Nice overall.

Draft pour at the source. The beer is a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has nutty notes and some dry, dark chocolate nuances. Some berry sweetness lingers in the background. Bigger body than anticipated. Fairly high carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 On tap at source. Really decent porter. All the right dark beer flavors- maple adds a nice mellow sweetness- still hoppy enough to be balanced. Big beer and somewhat boozy- 2015. Pretty full/ slick mouthfeel. Perfect for cold weather sipping outside. 4/16/2016 Half pour to finish off pizza night. More earthy and chocolate than I remember. Almost a dirty nuttiness to it. Big mouthfeel- somewhat stout like. Tasty. Good colder weather brew.

tia (1954) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2015
Tap @ Admiral. Deep brown with tan head. Smells a tad chocolaty and a little roasty. Starts sweet, then roasty, then dry. Heavier than some porters on the carbonation. Bit I still like it.

ben4321 (6071) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: Draft at The Admiral, Asheville, 1/2/15

Aroma: Has a sweet chocolate aroma, with some caramel malts, as well as some roasted notes.
Appearance: It has a dark brown pour, with a light brown head, and fairly coating lace.
Flavor: It has a somewhat sweet flavor, similar to the nose, a mild bitterness balances it.
Palate: Medium bodied, with a rather creamy, smooth, and clean feel, and a soft carbonation.
Overall Impression: I quite enjoyed this one. It is a sweeter porter, but not to the point of being unpleasant or cloying. Theres some balance here. It is very easy drinking and quaffable as well, which is always a plus. I was very high on this.

rosenbergh (11159) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC. 6.8%. Black colour with a tiny red hue and a small tan head. Sweet fruity hoppy aroma with some sweet and dark maltiness. Not bad. Not a roasted and coffee one. The flavour is sweet dark fruitiness, dark malt and mild roasty notes. Balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
