A classic porter with an understated complexity. It reminds me of fall, which is why I am drinking it...and any beer that has a unique enough taste ti invoke good memories is a good one. It is earthy, mildly bitter, slightly sweet with a good finish. I love it!

I love this beer!
Generally speaking - I love all of Sam Smith's brews...
Mildly sweet with a tinge of bitterness on the finish.
Perfect for autumn evenings - when the leaves are flying and the temps begin to dip...
