4.43/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Old school flask style bottle. Replica circa 1770 across the Delaware River right here in Philly. Poured into English style pub glass.

A: appears ruby brown with low but good carbonation and thin head that eventually fades to nothing. Just like an English pub would serve it. Impressive.

S: butter, dry cocoa, licorice, some roast, slight coffee, earthy hops, graham crackers.

T: starts sweet but ends dry with faint roasty porter finish. Sweetness reminiscant of chocolate, cocoa, coffee. Nice firm bitterness at the end.

M: feels about medium. Light enough to drink quite easily but malt complexities seem to weigh it down enough so you can ponder the great taste.

O: wonderful beer. Glad to have found this at Total Wine. Would definitely buy & drink again. Takes me back to the Old World if I imagine I could. If only I could brew a beer this great tasting, complex with low alcohol of 5.1%.

4.4/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Black with a brown head.

S: Roasty, sweet malt, chocolate, coffee, smells good.

T: Taste is the same, but better. It's very flavorful, and the nose was quite dull, comparatively.

M: Very full bodied. Very smooth.

O: A damn fine porter. This beer made me fall in love with the brewery, and I've tried almost everything of their that I can get my hands on.
