Great Porter!

A - Pours a dark black chocolate color with a nice 1 1/2 finger coffee colored head

S - Hints of roasty chocolate, coffee and vanilla.

T - Smooth, rich and delicious. Roasted chocolate with the perfect combination of coffee, vanilla and caramel.

M - Medium body, very smooth, excellent carbonation and goes down really easy.

O - Great brew. Hands down the best English Porter out there.

This beer is awesome. It's big, it's roasted, and its almost refreshing in a sense. Very Dark. Hints of chocolate and coffee keep you sipping while that creamy mouthfeel helps you to relax. This beer would be awesome for breakfast. Above all, the taste is spot on. Nutty at first, then a little chocolate milk, followed by burnt toast and a hint of hops. I'll have another!

Bought a case of this stuff because Wormtown is just that good. Can't wait for them to release their next bottle. Poured into a pint glass.

A - Spectacular deep brown pour with a big creamy two finger mocha head. I'm talking guiness creamy. It faded at a normal rate leaving some nice side lacing. Sooo creamy.

S - Usual great roasty chocolate and vanilla awesomeness. Nice carmel notes too.

T - Much like the nose this is rich and full tasting. Lots of great chocolate and light coffee notes along with some really solid vanilla notes.

M - Super rich and full and creamy. This stuff feels like lightly tingly and carbonated velvet. Quite good in the mouth, oh so refreshing.

O - Yeah, this stuff is oh so good. Great appearance and awesome smell, taste, mouthfeel. Yeah, this has been worth the wait!

Served: On tap at Peppercorn's, 10/23, served in a snifter. Served a little too cold, but was able to warm while waiting for my food.

A- Black, 1 finger creamy mocha brown, sticky head. Head dissipated quickly, but the lacing clung to the glass with avengence. Looked viscous as I swirled it, but it was in a snifter with a relatively narrow top. Looked very pretty, pour was perfect, right to the rim.

S- Picked up strong vanilla and caramel at first, but as it warmed, more chocolate and coffee came through.

T- Amazing... sweet up front with the same vanilla and caramel in the nose. As it warmed, more warmth from the alcohol could be detected. There was almost none of the smokey, slightly acrid roasted malt I've tasted in other porters. Finish was clean, only slightly dry, and I didn't pick up on much in the way of any hop notes.

M- Smooth, smooth, smooth. I don't think this was on nitro, but it felt like it. Definitely full bodied; you always knew it was in your mouth, but very pleasant sensation.

D- I could've drunk this all night. 'Nuff said.

Smooth, sweet and amazing. Complex, but all the flavors come together exceptionally well and were complimentary. I had it with a bison burger, and as far as main courses go, the mild flavor of the bison was OK as a pairing, but I would probably reserve this for dessert only if I were to do it over. Anyone in the central MA area, go get this while it lasts! Small batch, no growlers.

Somehow I never got to review this on tap, and now it's in bottle form! Hell yeah!

The top pops with a nice "tssst" sound, and pours a nice rich creamy darker colored 1 finger head with some nice lacing, over super dark brown color with hints of maroon rosy light coming though.

Nose is erupting from the pour, lots of nice roasted malts, creamy light chocolate, light fresh brewed coffee, plenty of crystal malts and caramel, a light vanilla, a bit more chocolate comes through as it warms bringing just a slight hot cocoa.

As the soft luscious beer hits my mouth, it dances around for a bit, delicately hinting at some chocolate, hot cocoa, and light cocoa nibs, then bringing on some roasted malts, a hint of fresh coffee, a bit creamy, then loads on the vanilla and caramel, plenty of crystal malts. Fairly rich, but creamy, smooth, and maintains a nice drinkable feel. The finish leaves a bit drier, very light residue left around the mouth as well as some lingering roast and chocolate, and just a hint of earthy bitter hops to finish it off, and some bitterness coming from the loads of roasted malts.

Mouth is a bit heavier bodied, creamy and luscious, with decent carbonation.

Overall this is an awesome porter, def one of the best around, if not in the country. Lots of big heavy luscious flavors, but still smooth and very drinkable. With all teh roast as well it didn't bring any minerality or acrid flavors, and booze was kept in check well.
