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

Consumed 1/8/12

Appearance: Deep brown, with some nice clarity - small, light tan head - fades to nothing rather quickly, with the exception of a small ring - some shards of lacing

Smell: Nicely roasty with a ton of surprisingly interesting chocolate - roasty coffee grounds, dark coffee - lightly burnt - chocolate malts, dark chocolate, and semisweet chocolate - hints of toffee and caramel, too - some odd, almost cola-like sweetness

Taste: In a word, mocha - roasty coffee - burnt, vaguely charred chocolate malts - dark chocolate, semisweet chocolate - sweet caramel and toffee notes - biscuits and bread - light, roasty bitterness - lightly sweet, with something that tastes like vanilla

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nicely carbonated, smooth, clean, quaffable

Overall: Perhaps the best English porter not brewed in England

I've been intending to review this for a while. I've had samples of it on a number of occasions, and it's always been exceptional. It's not going to blow any minds, but it's a very tasty porter, especially for the surprisingly low ABV.

Reviewing this beer in an Irish Pub on a wednsday night in December.. Broke college kids to my right sharing a burger and a shitty looking margarita (there's 6 of them)

This joint has a solid beer list and I'm digging porters in a major way right now so I went with this relatively local brew that I had never tasted.

Extremely good.. A bit of a lackluster head but everything else was super on point.

Beautifully balanced nose that gave me exactly what I was looking for from a porter.

Taste, everything .. Just balanced and full like I was looking for.

Well done

Bottled 8/22/12 poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.

A: Pours a dark, dark, pitch black. 1 finger of a light tannish color.

S: smells of coffee. Also smells of some caramel and roasted malts.

T: Notes of java and roasted malts are prominent with a little espresso and chocolate coming through after. This is some good stuff. Nicely balanced.

M: A medium mouthfeel is followed by some chewiness as the coffee flavor lingers. Not bad

Overall: This is a very delicious porter and an excellent example of the style. I'd recommend to anyone who likes an English porter that is done accurately. Good brew and I will definitely buy again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A dark beer with a light heart
A: Essentially pitch black with medium carbonation. Average off white head
S: Coffee and hops with a bit of chocolate and some smoke
T: Hops and roasted malt, coffee aftertaste with just a hint of smoked chocolate
M: Lip-smackingly crisp, almost minty. Certainly full bodied and full flavored
O: This porter does not mess around. Compare w/ Otter Creek's Stovepipe Porter
