22oz bottle. Bottled January 2014. Pours a rich black color with over an inch of medium brown head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, coffee, roasted malts, and earth. The taste is chocolate syrup, roasted malts, peat moss, and a hint of smoke. Some light and sweet coffee but rich chocolate syrup is the main flavor. Small amount of citrus hops. Creamy mouthfeel with a good deal of carbonation. Overall, pretty good Porter.

Pours a dark chocolate brown, hues of red. Very thin wispy light brown head builds then dissipates.

Nose is heavy roast. Chocolate. Coffee. Caramel and maybe some vanilla, but mostly the roast and cocoa.

Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, bitter up front with a sweet finish. Reminds me of a milky mocha coffee drink with alcohol.

Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but nice. Coats your mouth well with a warm wet finish.

Overall this is a pretty good beer.

Poured from bottle dated January 2013 into my Yeti tulip. Had passed this one on a number of occasions and, with my upcoming relocation, I picked it up on my last trip to the store.

A: Pours a dark, dark brown that borders on black with a finger's worth of khaki head that doesn't stay around quite as long as I'd expect with a beer of this ABV. No other complaints, however.

S: Lots of baker's chocolate and bready malts with a hint of smoke tied in. Not overly sweet by any means, but you know you're going to get something akin to a dark chocolate brownie upon tasting it.

T: Definitely picking up on the same notes that I had gotten in the nose. Very chocolately, but more bitter than sweet. Really nice.

M: It is thick and probably bordering on a stout, but I'm enjoying this on a muggy May evening without any second thoughts. I would like to have the taste linger a little longer on the palate, but while you're drinking it, it's hard to think about staying away from another sip.

O: I'm not happy with myself for having passed this up so many times at the store. The pricepoint ($7.99) could be a bit more reasonable, but it's worth it to pick it up once in a while if you've got access. I would've loved to try this with some barrel-aging.

Great Porter!

A - Pours a dark black chocolate color with a nice 1 1/2 finger coffee colored head

S - Hints of roasty chocolate, coffee and vanilla.

T - Smooth, rich and delicious. Roasted chocolate with the perfect combination of coffee, vanilla and caramel.

M - Medium body, very smooth, excellent carbonation and goes down really easy.

O - Great brew. Hands down the best English Porter out there.
