Dark coloring and a touch of ruby at the edges of the glass, this porter had a very stout like appearance. The head was a bit thin.

The scent was dry and chocolatey with some earthy tones.

The taste is robust with chocolate and toffee notes. There's some roasted malt and roasted coffee towards the end but it finished with a watery feel and taste. There is a bit of earthiness at points but its not distracting.

Stronger scents and less watery in the finish and this could be a great one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured a deep ruby-tinted brown with a pillowy tan head. The head has incredible retention and leaves substantial lacing. The aroma is a malt-lovers dream with big roasted notes of coffee and hints of chocolate. The aroma is similar but includes some mild earthy hops on the finish. The beer feels a little light on the palate, but not so much that I would call it "watery". A great big flavor English Porter.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Small head, not much lacing, decent color.

S - Nice roasted coffee and sweet chocolate aromas. Almost like a milk stout.

T - Lots of bitterness and roasted nuts. Not a lot of chocolate taste compared to smell.

M - A bit thin and some oiliness.

O - A decent porter. If it tasted like it smelled, it wouold be top notch. Still pretty good and very drinkable.

I've had this on tap as well, but this review is from the ol' bottle

A: beautiful dark brown/black color. opaque, except around the edges. A finger or so of khaki head that faded fairly quickly

S: Didn't get much off of the smell. Some roastiness and chocolate, but nothing special

T: Like I remember on tap...lots of dark chocolate and roasty notes in this one. Some bitterness on the end to give it some balance.

M: Good carbonation. A little thin, but I've been drinking mostly stouts so this is probably correct for a porter. Fairly dry

O: I really enjoyed this beer! It didn't blow my mind in any way, but a well done porter.
