Pours a brilliant deep brown with a minimal tan head. Aroma is roasty and chocolatey, with a touch of nutty malt. Floral hops are subtle.Flavor is slightly buttery, nutty, with a roasty, almost coffee-like bent. Carbonation is a touch high, but a very approachable porter.

Pours brown with a nice, fluffy well-retained head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of dried fruit some roast, mild coffee. The dried fruit aspect gives a sour touch that I'm not fond of.

The taste is of coffee and chocolate with dried fruits, that, like the smell, give a sour touch. Fortunately the roast and coffee/chocolate comes through strong enough to keep the fruit aspect in the back, especially as it warms. I enjoyed the second bottle more than the first, and bumped up the score slightly.

It is pretty smooth, but there is a fizz that cuts into it initially.

I had two bottles, and the second was better. Wondering if the first was old or infected. Still the second bottle had a nice malty/mildly roasty character. I will try it again when I see it.

Tommys Porter pours a brownish color with a small lacing head. There is a sharp malt flavor, with nice coffee flavors. The taste is the same, a nice sharp malt flavor with some coffee notes. Nice flavors, but a bit watery. Overall a nice porter with some coffee flavors.

12oz bottle.

A: Dark brown, nearly black body with a finger of fine tan head. Ok retention, good lacing. Solid.

S: Lots of sweet chocolate malt and dark fruit. Big cherry presence. Interesting.

T: Molasses, raisin, chocolate, and root beer. Sweet, spicy, and a little syrupy on the finish. All right.

M: Lightly carbonated light-to-medium body. A bit on the spritzy side for a Porter.

O: Decent but forgettable.

Cheers!
