Notes/Commercial Description:
This 18th Century-style Smoked Porter has subtle accent of peat-like Bamberg smoked malt, which is apparent in both the aroma and flavor. It is brewed with seven varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in note of bittersweet chocolate and coffee that are counter-balanced by a long-sustaining finish of Goldings hops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into a British Imperial pint glass. A one inch thick dark tan head that leaves a solid sheet of lacing on the glass. Color is a dark brown/lack with a dark chestnut highlights around the edges.

Smell is full of dark chocolate malts, toffee sweetness, and roasted coffee bitterness. A hint of floral hops edges in. Taste has a creamy bitter chocolate flavor mixed with a black coffee bitterness.

Mouthfeel has a fantastic creamy quality to it. Very smooth and easy to drink. The ABV is well hidden, so it sneaks up on you by the third or fourth round. Very good porter indeed.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. brown bottle, conditioned; brewed with English 2-row, and Pacific Northwest hops - served in a chalice. Clear, and oh-so close to black, topped with a rather thin, light-brown head, but the carbonation eventually works up a nice layer of foam. Pleasant aroma, with roasted chocolate, hints of fig and coffee, and a mild backing of hops. On the palate, it is almost fully-attenuated, and quite bitter from the hops and burnt/charred malts, but it has a nice, toasted malt flavor underneath. Adding to this is a big coffee bite, tobacco?, leather?, dark, semi-sweet chocolate, and some floral/piney hops hiding beneath. The body is medium, mouth-coating, low in carbonation, and it imparts a long finish. Overall it tastes kinda like a standard US stout to me, but that's fine, as I really enjoyed this one. It improves as it warms, with bitterness subsiding and flavor increasing, however I think this beer could use a touch of sweetness tossed into the mix.

Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that lingers. Not too much lacing going on. Nice amount of nuts and coffee in the aroma. A little more rich than a lot of Porters, with a good amount of coffee, malt, chocolate and hops in the flavor. The finish is nutty with a bit of molasses. I liked this one.

Sampled a 12 ouncer, imported to New York state from a recent trip to that beer center known as Ann Arbor, Michigan. No freshness dating, but the types of hops and malts used to brew the beer are listed in the upper label, a nice touch. Pours allmost black, with light coming thru on the edges. Oily tan head showing good retentive qualities, tiny bubbles, and respectable lacing left behind. the nose is rich, inky, jammy. This is a full flavor, fruity brew, notes of grape preserves, ink, smoke, leather. Robust, fruity and complex, this is an interesting and differant Porter. Notes of chocolate and minimal hops in the finish

Best beer they have there, I liked it enough to get a growler filled with it. Pours a dark brown/black with a nice coco head to it.. Smell is of chocolate and almonds. Taste is great. Chocolate at the beginning and almonds at the end with a good after taste. Best part of the beer is the taste, no doubt. Mouth feel was medium and drinkability was great. No problem finishing off this brew.

On tap at House of 1000 Beers in New Kensington, PA.

Poured into a Leffe goblet: Black with chestnut highlights, half-finger of tan head that really lasts.

Dark bread in the smell, nutty, clean toasted barley, slightly savory quality like the meatiness of salmon (smoke?), slight roasting cocoa bean.

Tastes of dark fruit skin & alcohol at first, that gives way to deep roast coffee & cocoa, ending with a meaty smokiness with a lingering dryness. Really tasty, great stuff.

Medium-full-bodied, moderately astringent but finishes smooth & slightly sticky, treacly.

Yeah, this is great. Very tasty & a little rough around the edges, but in a way that I enjoy & lends some character. Beautiful smoke character with being a "smoked" beer, a little more subtle.

Bought this one for my daughter's birthday party -- tea party theme for the ladies, beer in the basement for men. I was looking for English beers, but the American micros were more affordable in this horrendous economy, and when I saw Sir Winston chomping that cigar and flashing me the victory, I couldn't turn this one away (though I did end up picking up some stuff from across the pond too). I'll buy anything with Churchill on the packaging. Pours a dark brown with hints of red through the body when held up to the light. Coffee-with-cream colored head that doesn't diminish quickly.

Pleasing, inviting aromas of French roast coffee with a boozy, caramely backbone.

Taste is drier than expected on the early intake -- almost a dry stout -- that gives way quickly to 75-percent cacao dark chocolate, the aforementioned dark-roasted coffee, caramel, toffee, French Silk ice cream and a finish of ripe fruits.

Nice, strong presence in the mouth. Good drinkability in front of a disaster of a football game on a cold day. At 7.20 ABV with a pronounced richness to boot, I'm not drinking this all afternoon if I have somewhere to go, but it's a real pleaser.

And I'm proud that yet another outstanding brewery has emerged from my home state (their English IPA kicks butt too). Now if we can just get Bell's to distribute in Massachusetts...

biegaman shared this bottle with me. thanks jan!

12oz bottle, batch code D2.

pours very dark brown, nearly opaque, with a small tan head. bit of spotty lace.

aroma is good. bit of sourness. lots of roast. bit of caramel and toffee. bit of coffee. toasted multigrain bread.

taste is great. medium bitterness, more assertive than i'd expect from an english or baltic and definitely closer to an american style porter. even the roast is a little stronger than i expected. dark chocolate. coffee. alcohol almost completely hidden. there's some sourness too, giving it a little of the baltic bent. an interesting mix of the three porter styles that i really enjoy.

mouthfeel is good. medium-low carbonation. fairly big body.

drinkability is great. very well balanced and quite enjoyable. i'll definitely be looking for a sixer of this one next time i'm in michigan. thanks jan!

12oz bottle poured into a McMenamins tumbler at around 50 degrees. Poured it quick to get the 1 finger width head. Dark tan head much like I'd see on a shot of espresso. Settles down quickly into a thin rim with light lacing all the way down. Can't see through the body, very very dark brown, not quite black.

Smells very roasty and complex, lots of coffee back there along with some smoke and vanilla. Great depth of character here.

I love porters and stouts that taste like this. It's incredibly roasty much like a Irish Stout but the flavor is more pronounced. Lots of coffee up front here as well. As it warms a little more the roastyness gives a little ground to the bitter cocoa, caramel and vanilla undertones. Even a little bit of cherry here too. Hops are apparent, creeping up on the swallow, a little bit earthy/fruity/slightly citrusy. Everything contributes just the right amount and I'm loving every second of it, if I could give it a 4.7/5 on taste I would.

Smooth and chewy, yet bubbly enough to feel lively. Finishes decently wet and leaves my mouth feeling like it does after a sip of coffee.

Drinkability is pretty good for a strong porter of 7.2% ABV. I wouldn't drink it all that quick. The feel is pretty thick for the style but that can be a good thing. A really great amplified version of an English Porter to appease American Porter drinkers. What a treat!

We pour a brew of rich coffee brown. It puts up a two and a half finger head of massive chocolate milk colored bubbles, showing nice retention. Lacing is chunky and geographical. No haze or sediment is noted, and carbonation appears to be lighter. The aroma is dark and soured, with heavily smoked brown and pale malts that borders on charred peat, salty molasses, cooling vanilla bean metallics, vegetal mint leaf, bready pumpernickel grain, and hints of chocolate syrups. With warmth comes enhanced char, more of a cereal grain, light honey sweetness, medicinal phenols, and the sting of booze. Our first impression is that the flavoring nicely mirrors the aroma, with huge BBQ smokiness and grainy sourness. As we sip, the taste opens with bell pepper flesh, soured lactic milkiness, marijuana grassiness, lemon rind zest, huge smokiness, black leathers, darkly roasted coffee and brown malts, faint grassy hops, aromatic peat, mildly sweet bubblegum esters, milk butters, and the earthy grit of soil. The peak comes with toffee sweetness, bittered cocoa flakes, charcoal bitterness, smoked meatiness, spicy booze, continued grassy hops bite, and pecks of white sugar. The finishing wash comes with creamed iced coffee, milk chocolates, white sugar cloy, more charred malt sourness, light banana esters, peat, limey bite, hints of dried apricots and dates, basil leafiness, soy sauce, clean vanilla husk, and a cooling paler malt crispness. The aftertaste breathes bitterly of earthiness, moss, smoky peat, brown rice starchiness, dried corn, coffee malts, chocolate syrup, BBQ char, medicinal phenols, lactic acidity, chocolate and brown malt smoothness, chocolate mousse, booze, and a light grassy hop. The body is medium, and the carbonation is medium. Each sip gives nice slurp, smack, cream, froth, and pop. The mouth is initially cooled, but this gives way quickly to warming sting, heavy astringent chalkiness, and sticky pucker down the palate and back up the tongue. The abv is appropriate, and the beer sips nicely.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its robustness of flavoring. While the nose did a nice job of beginning to describe the beer, it didn’t quite prepare you for the powerful, pervasive onslaught of smokiness through the taste. It was like black coffee meets mesquite BBQ meets a beautifully peaty scotch. These blended wonderfully across a base of sweeter chocolate, brown, and coffee malts, with even a bit of hops stopping by to say hello, and add some grassiness. The flavor is strong and excellent to style, and this guy will happily take you to foggy London town and back with a smile on your face the entire time.

Thanks to Northyorksammy for this bottle..Appreciated. Bottle sports a mug shot of Churchill and advertised "bottle conditioned ale"....these are good things....promising.

Pour reveals a dark red-mahogany liquid that is opaque in a larger tulip glass. Lovely 2 finger sticky mocha cap. Pronounced aromas of coffee, cocoa, molasses, dates, spice...hint of smoke.

Front side is malt dominated with the roasty-smokey, burnt toffee sweetness and then the palate fills with more complex tastes as the yeast spice and woody hops are detected....mouth feel is great!...very sturdy and substantial body for a porter without getting too filling and nearing the stout body...still a very drinkable porter as porter should be.

Finish is slowly drying and the hops come forward as the malts recede on the tongue....light metallic aftertaste...a very well made and well executed porter that hints at "imperial porter" status but stays sufficiently dry and drinkable...nice porter..will go out of my way to get some on the next trip south.

Pours black with some amber highlights and a 2 finger tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is full of coffee and some chocolate, with light notes of malt and some herbal hop notes. Flavor begins like a sweet espresso with notes of chocolate and toffee. Some herbal notes make their way though, and the roasted malt and hops combine to make for a nice bitter finish. Very smooth, with low to medium carbonation and a medium to full body. A very good beer that I could drink all night!

Color is dark tarnished brown with ruby edges, thin tan head, whispy skim left over after fading with a thin collar; lacing moderately sticking in strings.

Aroma is quite intriguing with Reeses peanut butter cups and roastyness mixed with coffee notes when first taking it in. Carob, perhaps even alfalfa sprouts approach some of the nose as it warms. Very interesting qualities.

Taste has a nice peppering smooth vegetable oil sweetness thats struck with cocoa and chocolate, peanut butter and coffee. Very apparent drying finish of left over chocolate and cocoa mixing with a good portion of coffee. Bitterness is mild but nice of chocolate, coffee roast, and slight dry hop. Very nice finisher and one interesting taster. Subtle and complex, but not overly potent or strong.

Feel is lightly creamy, smooth, mediumness in its body, fairly hefty drying finish, but tends to ware off its effects once you get use to it. At first, the finish was absolutely wonderful but it seemed to fade off as the glass emptied.

This was oh so close to getting the next notch up in numbers, but it didn't quite bowl me over enough to do just that. But I wouldn't turn this down for nothing. A nice porter for sure and recommend trying it out.

A big U.P. thanks goes out to trbeer for this one eh!

Finally, a winner out of my Arcadia sampler box. The London Porter pours a deep and opaque brown body, topped by a one inch light brown head that is creamy and longlasting. Sheets of lacing are left down the sides of the Fuller's pint glass.

Aroma is complex. Milk chocolate, and a cornucopia of dark fruits are assertive on the nose. Plums, Concord grapes, and prunes are very apparent. Just a hint of smoky and dark roast malts are evident as it warms.

Mouthfeel is creamy and solid medium bodied. Carbonation is appropriately subdued.

Taste is creamy and complex. Nutty, chocolate, loaded with dark fruits. Roasty malt bitterness is present but barely noticed, rounded off by the interesting complexity of malts. A note of leather adds interest. Coffee bitterness adds some dark roasty notes as it reaches room temperature. Finishes with a flourish of complexity.

Topnotch! One of the better and more interesting Baltic style porters I've had the pleasure to sample. Pleasantly complex.

Appearance is dark cola brown practically opaque large toffe brown head leaves nice even streaks of lacing throughout the whole pint. Aroma has a dark chocolate and strong coffee presence with notes of fruity overtones with herbal hop bursts very nice. Taste is luciously sweet with dark chocolate and herbal hops providing some balancing bitterness, my palate enjoys the creamy layers of chocolate and burn malt provided toffee notes very complex and drinkable. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied robust English porter has even natural carbaontion with the occasional floating yeast particles adss a nice texture to this brew. Drinkability is excellent, I consumed mine while sitting in the sun and still enjoyed this dark beer instead of the typical pilsner or hefe.

Pours opaque with a darker tan head. Some roasted chocolate tones on the nose. After time there seems to be a good bit of dark chocolate on there as well. Seemed a bit mild at first, especially compared to some of the outrageous baltic porters I have had the chance to try in the past, but it opened up over time. Flavor is thick with malts; a touch of sweetness kicking in on the end. Slight roasted tones on the flavor as well. Mostly though, thick malt qualities abound here. Feel is thick with a low carbonation. Overall extremely drinkable. Smooth and rich. Try it. I would put this up against any of the "great" baltic porters of Europe. The only thing that they might outdo this one in is the nose. Over time this one gets just better and better as it warms. Amazing.

served into a pint glass from a 12oz. long neck brown bottle with crimped-on cap.

Opque,black reddish hue, a tan head quickly diminishing to a coating of foam throughout the beer. Could have been served a bit to cold because everthing else about the beer was great.

Nice,complex moderate nose roasty/carmelly/chocolaty/smokey,with hints of vanallia as the beer warms.Pleasing,inviting all the aromas a porter should have.

A very tasty beer,robust and complex,very roasty and chocolalty/nutty/carmelly, a very balanced malt taste. Woody and spicy with a crisp,sharp, slightly tart finish.

Medium mouthfeel,a bit creamy,slightly dry with a good syrupy feel that makes the mouth water for more. An execllent porter,flavorful and well rounded,a must try porter. Wish I had another one!

Reviewed from a 12oz bottle drank on 12/22/04. Nice label with Winston Churchill giving his approval. Appearance is very dark brown with an inch of tan foamy head. Rings of lace were left around the glass as the head stayed for a decent bit. Chocolate malt, roasted coffee and a touch of bitter earth hops comprise the aroma. Bitter sweet dark chocolate and roasted coffee roll onto the tongue first. A bitter earthiness from the hops is present as well. Very tasty brew that ends on a roasty coffee note. Fairly thick feel for the style and it’s quite creamy and goes down very smooth. Very nice beer I would love to make a session beer in it was local. Thanks to tikkigodxxx for another great brew.

This was one excellent beer. Very many flavors come through. I notice chocolate and cream/vanilla combined at the onset. coffee is next to follow. Some roasted malts mix with a smokiness that really makes this beer stand out. Finishes with some dry leafy hops combined with more smoky flavors. Excellent.

Dark root beer brown body; light cocoa brown head is a little wispy with moderate lacing. Heady aromas of peat, maple syrup, sasparilla, light vanilla, cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and traces of coffee beans.

Roasted malts and herbal hops greet the tongue. Rich chocolate sweetness and peat malt take over. Roasted bitterness hangs around in the background. Hints of sasparilla, vanilla, and dark fruit sweetness. Roasty, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. Medium-full body with a slightly oily feel. Very good. This may be Arcadia's best full time offering.

Pours a rich black color with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste follows well with chocolate and roasted malts. Nice creamy and nicely carbonated mouthfeel. Drinkability is good, very easy to drink. I could easily have a few but its relatively high abv limits its drinkability. Overall a great beer. I look forward to trying other Arcadia brews in the future.

Deep dark brown with some amber tint, nice pillowey light brown head leaving minimal lacing. Looks great. Aroma is roasty and sweet with a powerful chocolate scent backed by some bitter coffee. A very full bodied beer, mouthfeel is thick, smooth, and creamy. Flavor is off the charts with a heavy chocolate and roasted malt prominence. There is a little bit of roasted smokiness as well but not as forward as I was expecting. Incredible beer here will look for it again.
