Pours out brown filling the glass with a body that is almost black letting in brown and ruby in the light. Head is a light brown.

Aroma is roasty and sweet with some herbal and charcoal.

Flavor follows nicely on those roast and sweet flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. Has a earthy edge to it.
Body is light and creamy.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Deep ruby color with thin off white head that disappears quickly spite medium carbonation. Aroma is complex with an even chocolate, coffee, roasty, and spice character. Flavor is rich with a mild bitterness that is quite buried under a thick layer of malty, chocolate, coffeeness. Flavor is lingering but smooth clinging to the malty, chocolate, coffeeness. Excellent beer and top example of a tradition English Porter.

Two finger creamy tan head. Mild cocoa like aroma.Very dark almost opaque as I had to hold it up to a light bulb to see a deep ruby like color. Mild bitterness. Soft chocolate and coffee taste. I sense a chalk like feel to the chocolate which may be the coffee side kicking it, Has a rich soft feel.

11.2 oz. bottle from BevMo. Pours opaque black with a small, caramel colored head. Nose of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, black coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Little carbonation. Rich and tasty. Not light by any means. More of a sipping beer. Nicely balanced. A classic porter.

Nice porter of a dark color - but not completely opaque - and an ok yellowish foam that vanishes leaving a lace that reminds of cola.
The reason why this beer is exemplar in porter style is because it has a nice smooth taste and aroma of roasted malts. There are some nice tones of coffe and chocolate, but the malty tones are definately the highlights.
Feel is smoth, I prefer porters with higher body and carbonation.
