black with a smallish head, copper to the light smell is a tart and strong burnt malt taste is mild and refreshing, a great mix between burnt malt and sweeetness mouthfeel is extremely slippery and refreshing, not much carbonation overall this deserves its status as a classic

550 ml bottle, Gardiner Haskins, Bristol - Pours dark black with a large foamy tanned head. Nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Aroma - Sweet, nutty, roasted malts, molasses notes. Taste - Sweetish notes, berries, nut overtones, light hop feel, roasted malts, burnt sugar feel, light bitter finish. Nice light bodied porter.

All about subtlety in this beer: notes of molasses and licorice perfectly balanced with the malty and nutty and a perfect medium body pleasantly smooth.

I find it VERY difficult not to gulp this beer and move straight to another of the same.

A very nice beer. Weirdly has almost no smell. A stout with taste and a great feel. Their Oatmeal and Chocolate Stouts have more taste and are more complicated drinks. If you want to drink a lot of Samuel Smith's, maybe try this beer, but the Extra Stout is sublime yet also easy to drink a lot of.

Poured very nice, solid head that disappeared quickly. Very dark color. Aroma is a little molasses and some sherry wine? Mouthfeel was a little flat. Needs more carbonation, but that won't help the flavor (or lack of) problem. This beer is bland. Sorry, no other words for it. Looks great, tastes blah. Their Organic Chocolate Stout is 10 times the beer that this one is. That is the reason why I tried this one. Guess I will go back the original.

Solid English porter, Deep mahogany color with a strong molasses nose. Molasses dominates the flavor, but highlighted with hints of cherry/fruit and coffee. Strong coffee finish. Mouth feel is a mix of fine carbonation and malt.

I do not understand why this beer is rated so high, Taste like sparkling soda and has a flat taste. Why Samuel Smith puts so much carbonation in their drinks

Pours a dark mahogany color, with a lacy tan head. Oak aromas similar to those from wine or Scotch. Light carbonation, and otherwise a very smooth body. Strong malt backbone accentuated with notes of coffee and cola. Seems drier than American porters.
