12/14/06- Purchased at Dart Liquors in Stateline, NV.

Presentation- 16.9oz bottle with a freshness code imprinted on the neck. Poured into my St. Bernardus chalice.

Appearance- Medium black with an auburn hue, Full 3/4 inch and rather creamy looking head. Nice rim remains throughout. Light streaks of lace remain.

Smell- Smoky and sweet at the same time. Very earthy and woody scented. Nice bittersweet chocolate notes.

Taste- Sharp chocolate notes mix and mingle between dark and bittersweet. A tad salty from the smoky rauch-like flavor.

Mouthfeel- Chewy with mid-low carbonation. Lightly mouthcoating.

Drinkability- Good flavor and texture. One of the better traditional porters out there.

Beer poured to a dark black color with a very thick dark tan head. It is a nice thick brew that gave of aromas of chocolate with a bit of coffee. The head stayed for a good amount of time and had great lacing till the beer was gone! The taste was of chocolate, caramel, coffee with a bit of nuts. Must say that the drink ability on this brew is very high, but more of a winter season brew for me. Over all I gave this brew the high marks it deserved. Feel that the Samuel Smith Imperial Stout is a bit better but this ranks pretty high for me.

Beer was in a great looking clear bottle (normal for Samuel Smith), 550 ML.
