My new favorite porter, the look was basically spot on for what I look for in a porter and the smell was nice and like that of coffee and some earthy notes but not too strong. The taste was wonderful and wasn't too different but was exactly what I was expecting and had a nice malty finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and is among the best I have ever had in any beer I have ever had.

Deep, dark and somewhat deviant, the matra of the porter's namesake doesn't end there. One sip draws you into a toasty, chocolaty lull from which it's uncertain that we will return.

Handsomely tall and dark, the frothy porter patiently separates is ominous brown body from its mocha stained foam. Above which, a sultry scent stems forth in the form of coffee, nutty, chocolaty and marshmallowy enticement. Drifting upon the tongue, its lavish bittersweetness emerge.

Its savory dark flavor ensues in the form of those toasted marshmallows, nutty kona coffee, cocoa, and scorched toffee flavors. Beautiful in their long and lingering display, the porter slowly drifts into a bitterly toasted finish that relaxes its sweetness and allows the woodsy hops to frame a finish when you didn't see it coming.

Toasted dryness decorates the waning moments as soft fruit and spices of grape and fennel waft about in the beer's warmth. Its firm but medium body serves to a creamy-dry finish with a pleasant afterglow of coffee and dark chocolate reaching late. Paired with a sweet and nutty Swiss cheese and a marriage is made in an ominously dark heaven.

Pours the black color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, oatmeal, hint of hop, and a hint of chocolate. Fits the style of an English Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, roasted malt, alcohol, oatmeal, hint of hop, and a hint of wheat. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, and body.

"Brewed in the style of an English Porter". Available year round in 12 oz. 6 packs.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 51º Fahrenheit.

Pours a crisp frothy cocoa-tan head over a deep brown, near black body. Retention is average and lacing is light and spotty. The aroma combined notes of cocoa, roasted nut and toasted malt with secondary undertones of coffee bean and vanilla for a potent and detailed aroma. The flavor is similar, although slightly less full in body, with moderate roasted malt, ground coffee bean and vanilla the main characters of an lightly sweet body. The texture is slick, slightly chewy and somewhat thin with a medium crisp carbonation for a spritely, busy mouthfeel. The body is shy of medium for the style, medium+ overall. Balance is moderately earthy bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is very mild and off characters are minimal to none. Overall I found the aroma promising but the flavor itself lacking the same depth and character. While English porters are not traditionally sweet, I felt the dryness of this beer warranted a touch more viscosity and body to justify the flavors coming out. Certainly not a unenjoyable porter by any means, but not an exceptional one either.
