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.
