22oz Bomber poured into an Imperial pint glass. i paid 6.99 for it in Delaware.
A - Pours cola color with a 1.5 finger creamy, tan head that dissipates to a thin residue on the surface. A little lacing on the glass
S - faint roasted malt scent with chocolate and coffee notes.
T - I could see drinking this Porter anytime. If not outstanding, it is at very least a pleasant drinking experience. Flavors of coffee, chicory with a prominent bitter roasted malt and chocolate milk finish.
M - Light carbonation, medium-bodied as might be expected from a Porter, and a bitterness that hangs on the tongue.
O - I enjoyed this Porter quite a bit, even though it wasn't the best I've had. The Brewmaster, however, can be proud of the results. I would try Walker's again if the opportunity presented itself. Decent price point too, even though others on this site got the same bottle for two dollars less.

July 26th 2011 (from notes)
A - super deep brown, one finger very tan head and some okay lacing
S - lots of vanilla and chocolate, nice oak, nutty, very sweet, toasted grains and malts
T - nice coffee, milk chocolate, toffee, nutty, vanilla, slightly hoppy, nice Toastiness, great malt and some wood/earth
M - fluffy, well balanced, nice complexity, low acidity, medium long finish and medium dry
D - no matter light or dark big or balanced, this beer is for you.
Final thought - at less than 6% ABV this beer isn't for getting tossed. But at only $4 this is a great beer
