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.

A – Black, nearly opaque. Non-existent head, minimal lacing.

S – Barley, malt, molasses, and hops.

T – Simplistic yet totally delightful. Barley, malt, molasses, and hops. It’s one of those beers that’s beautifully simple and absolutely enjoyable.

M – So clean, so crisp, so dry. Unbelievable. No lingering flavor.

D – I didn’t really think that a porter could ever be considered refreshing. This one changed my mind. I really, really enjoy this beer and if there ever was a porter that one could session, this would be it. Once again, Samuel Smith goes above and beyond in every way. They make me almost want to move to England! After all, I’d love to try this one on tap!

A great porter! Beer pours a dark tea color. The smell is malts and caramel. The flavor is extremely smooth with hints of banana, caramel and malt. Overall one great Beer!
