Served in a nonic pint glass
A: dark brown with hints of red and a thing cream colored head
S: Smell is lots of chocolate and roasted malt, with caramelized notes lying just under the surface.
T: Roasted dark chocolate bitterness with a gentle malt backbone in what is an otherwise subdued but pleasant pallet.
M: Wow, this beer has one of the best mouthfeels I have experienced. Creamy and very smooth with only a mild cask conditioned carbonation.
D: Very smooth and very drinkable.

This porter was spot on color wise. A very deep Ruby color that maintained translucence. An off-white, but not quite tan head died quickly. This beer had the lowest carbonation of my samplings at the Ale House. Classic roasty porter flavors are evident. A slightly caramel burnt flavor, toffee, and more of a black malt character than chocolate. A surprisingly light mouth feel for a bold tasting beer. There was a faint soapiness from the yeast that was evident in their Bellringers Bitter making me wonder if there was a single "house" yeast strain at work here. About half-way through, a vanilla and diacytl flavor becomes noticeable.
Overall a good, hand pulled porter with a surprisingly low nose.

Served on cask at Galbraith's! This poured a dark brownish black with no head. It smelled of coffee, vanilla, sweet malts and a touch of caramel. It tasted of light roasted coffee, light vanilla and toasted malts. It was very drinkable and one of my friend's favorite of the evening.

Well rounded roast aroma with a touch of nuttiness.
Deep, dark burnished mahogany colour with a decent light tan head.
Good toast flavours with notes of chocolate and roast. Well rounded and not over the top.
Medium-full body with low carbonation. Good.
A decent porter. I like the balanced, restrained character and it is a decent English Porter.
