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%.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 22, 2013.

The pour is very dark brown with reddish hues. It could have been darker but I won't complain much.

The aroma is of dark malts, black licorice, and brown sugar. Hops are far in the background. But it smells like a sweeter Porter should smell.

The body is light to medium to bold with a moderate creaminess.

The taste is quite likable. Plenty of dark malts, brown sugar, and a low hop bitterness that plays up toward the end but does not overpower. It really tastes like a Porter should but a lot sweeter than I prefer.

4.11/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.5 A: Clear dark amber brown color. Just over one finger of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average, but a decent sized ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Roasted barley with toastiness and a heavy graininess. Under that there's a doughy neutral sweetness. Dry with chocolate and caramel. Mineral with hints of coffee.

4.25 T: Taste is like the nose, but a little less dry, which makes for good balance overall. Roasty toasty malts, big graininess and doughiness. Chocolate, caramel, neutral malt chewiness. Mineral, coffee, and biscuit.

4.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Chewy without being sweet. Pleasantly creamy.

4.0 D: Another winner from this brewery. A very good option if you are in the mood for something English.
