Got this at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

From a bottle into a pint glass.

APPEARANCE: Pours a decent 1 finger medium-thick looking tan head with decent retention. Very dark brown in color with next to no carbonation evident. A decent film remains to the end and leaves a bit of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: A decent nose of roasted and smoky barley malt with lots of bitter smelling chocolate and espresso notes. Pretty good.

TASTE: Roasted barley malt again with lots of smoky notes. Some bitter dark chocolate and strong espresso notes coffee notes as well, much like the nose. A strong aftertaste of smoky burnt malt and bitter espresso. Not bad at all, but not quite as bold as the nose had suggested.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. A little light on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes quite dry on the palate. Maybe a bit too astringent, unfortunately. Slightly chalky finish.

OVERALL: A good drinkable session brew. Perhaps a bit too astringent on the finish for some, but definitely an all-round enjoyable brew.

Bottle Date: Best Before 9-27-09

A - Pours a nice dark black color, with root-beer brown accents along the edges of the glass. A nice cream color head formed and settled. No lacing.

S - Delightful smells of roasted malt. Slight smells of toffee, dark chocolate and light roasted coffee.

T - Very nicely balanced. Big roasted malts come at you strong, but they are put in check with just the right amounnt of hops. The hops are not overly bitter, but balance out the malts very nicely.

M - Exactly what a Porter should be. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Too many breweries confuse stouts and porters as far the mouthfeel goes. I like my stouts to be thicker and less carbonated than my porters.

D - Very drinkable beer. This has great flavor, a nice mouthfeel and at 4.8% abv, you can drink a few of these and still function.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Big head on the pour which swiftly settles down into a half finger froth of large bubbles in the middle with cream nearer the rims, longlasting lacing. Dark chocolate, chocolate mud pie and caramel infused nose with a sweet tobacco smokiness, with time more bitter coffee rind notes appear, mostly canceled out by plum and blackberry fruit scents, gently floral but no real evidence of hoppiness in your nostrils. Medium-bodied, however, the carbonation swirls aggressively through the attack making it initially lighter than that. The roast more focused here, alongside a mineral water aspect and the low alcohol level makes it a refreshing sessionable beer. Dark chocolate powder, caramel, butterscotch and coffee hard candy make it negligibly sweeter than bitter. Fig and golden raisin mix with more plum and cherry fruit flavors, light and bouncy overall. More clarity in the biscuit, golden dough flakes and graham cracker components. Given its relatively light touch coats the tongue nicely and extends its finish without requiring attention.

3 years and 6 days since I first tried this beer, I've had the luck to revisit it in a different mood and with slightly more experience with English Porter. The label says this is the Silver Medal Winner at the GBBF 1999 (Bottle-Conditioned Ale class), brewed with "14 different malts and 3 hops", including "Pale malts Otter, lager, wheat, pale crystal, dark srystal, dark chocolate, pale chocolate, black, roast barley, cara malt, torrified wheat, amber, brown and malted oats"... (Wow...) BB 27/06/09, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: coming in a nearly black hue (like deeply dark ebony) with a thick tan frothy head with good retention and leaves uneven sheets of lacing along the way, while the carbonation level is unknown.
S: underneath the lightly dusty notes of the froth, the harmonious malt symphony is in full swing - besides the main characters of roast barley, chocolates malt and crystal malt (I can only identify these 3), the lightly sour fruits add some more complexity and render a mildly stale or prune-ish fruity touch, while earthy/spicy hops also provide an extra edge to the formula. A closer sniff after the foam settles reveals sweet roast walnuts, caramelised raisins, and more bitter-sweet roast and herbal aroma. Quiet, thick, and complex, but way less vinous as I'd expect from an English Porter.
T: a refreshing and pretty dry swallow of black malts, licorice-infused water, dried black dates and aromatic toasted (wal-)nuts comes in a lovely, light-bodied manner; then, quickly, a very mixed bitter and roasty middle expands with a light sour edge of dark fruits, adding a bit more complexity to the foretaste. The aftertaste is pretty soul-lifting aromatic and roasted-nutty (continuing with the roast malty theme), enhanced by earthy hops and bitterness, while the sides of the tongue can clearly detect some charred-woody bits in the long, dry, chewy finish.
M&D: rather lively-carbonated initially but softening as the beer warms; I can't say this is a very "Porter-like Porter" to me especially after having tasted some slightly more fruity/stale/vinous samples across the UK, but this one has a particular charm in that the malty edge is really understated, rendering a consistently dry and bitter palate... Not like a normal bitter-sweet English stout, not as big as a vinous Porter, not at all hoppy as more modern interpretations - this one is, however, more like a dry stout (if anything), and highly enjoyable in its own class!

* Tasting Date: 21/02/06
A beer using 14 malts and 3 hops? Well, this is what it says on the bottle, and I don't think I could possibly discern each and every element in this "entire butt" style porter!! No useful freshness info. is printed on the label, apart from: "BB 907 011"(?!)... Served lightly chilled in a jug.
4 A: colour of very deep brown with ruby hues; an off-white beer head comes foamy but not very thick, settling to a very thin sheet of froth on the top throughout the drink~~
4 S: typical for an English porter and "quietly pleasant": roasted malts come along with a mild note of dark chocolates, cocoa and whole coffee beans--deep and aromatic... backed by a good depth of charred wood and a semi-calcium pill smell. 14 malts? they're all rolled into one!
4.5 T: mellow roasted maltiness smoothly lubricates the tongue~~ very slowly a subtle and mixed flavour develops--dark chocolates, oats, chewy brown bread, char, a touch of wood, and a touch of vanilla, whereas the hop entry is reasonably restrained... a good depth felt at the deep end of the palate supports the colourful flavour upfront, while the complex and long-lasting aftertaste is dominated by bitter-sweet, chewy roasted malty overtone and a ve...ry mild sour edge of darkest chocolates... satisfyingly dry-ish bitter finish.
4 M&4.5 D: with good support of micro-scopic fizz, the body is fresh yet smooth enough throughout, but it's not as soft as a milk stout or rich as an oatmeal stout or fullsome porter; it has its own rough edges and that provides some extra enjoyment to this nice dark brew. As anticipated, I fail to discern which malt is which in this beer, simply because the flavour is so harmonious that I couldn't even tell if the claim of "14 malts" is anything but marketing strategy!! A good-quality quaffable porter it is.

Poured a darkish brown with a two-finger tan head that slowly died and left lacings down the glass. A heavy malt smell in the aroma, a mix of some sweet/sugary malts and dryer malts like coffee, roasted, toasted. There's all kinds of malts in here. A smooth, somewhat creamy and bittersweet beer, the malts from the smell are in here and mixed well. There's chocolate, caramel, toffee, coffee, roasted, toasted, maybe even burnt. There is even some minor hop presence in the backbite with a more of a grapefruit hop taste than citric. The smoothness that the beer passes over the tongue is balanced with a crisp, dry backbite, and I could sit at the bar all day if this was the only beer available.

A: A nice dark brown appearance with a small off-white head.

S: Smells sweet - reminded me of Tia Maria!

T: Nothing outstanding grabbed me, seemed a little bland. None of the sweetness in the smell carried over to the taste.

M: Watery and bland.

D: Would make a good session beer as there is nothing harsh or out of the ordinary about it. I found it drinkable but bland.

A: poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Medium brown color, translucent, rich red glow. Small cream head.

S: deep caramel malts througout. Some coffee and tobacco, hint of aged whiskey.

T: Malty to be sure, but not too strongly flavored in any direction; the complex smells carry the day. No bitterness to speak of.

M: like your average English ale. I agree with a previous review that some oats would have helped elevate the feel to the creaminess you want in a good dark beer.

D: crisp and clean and satisfying. As an imperial stout kind of guy, this is to me what your all-purpose everyday lager is to most others. Could drink frequently, and just might.

I received four 500ml bottles of this porter from a recent case from the beer club.

The beer poured a very dark brown colour with a dark cream coloured head which reduced to a 2mm film, but did show both retention and lacing thereafter.

The smell is quite earthy, dominated by burnt malts, dark chocolate, oats and coffee.

These fragrances continue through to the taste with the malts dominating and the coffee and oaty taste that left a smokey burnt aftertaste.

This felt like a porter to drink, very heavy body. However I like a porter / stout on occasion, but I couldn't take them all night. A nice porter, but not an all nighter for me.

I guess that sometimes you get so used to looking at the same beer lable, that you take for granted that you have drank it before. I figured I would re-try this very nice porter since I hadn't in a while. Now seeing that I have no previous reviews, I don't think that I have tried it afterall. The first few sips confirm.

The beer starts a promising solid brown hue with a mild haze. An initial froathy head forms, but then fades to a 1/4" and endured the session. Nice lacing along the way.

More fruity aromas than in most porters. Grapes, plumbs, sweet dates, and nutty coffee notes ride along side scents of cocoa, molassas, and creamy malts. A fairly complex nose.

Much the same in the flavors with emphasis on the coffee and dry cocoa, thus relegating the fruity esters to complimentary notes only. Very well balanced in the flavors with a piney, floral hop taste that comes in late, however along with a light metalic pang in the aftertaste.

Lighter in body than the boldness of flavors indicate which makes the beer very drinkable. But at the sacrifice of creaminess and smoothness, the beer reveals a lightly harsh graininess, mild astringency, and at times comes eerily close to watering.

Ultimately a very nice porter. I feel that a mild addition of oats would help out the textures and smoothen the beer out a lot.

Thanks to Cigar City Brew for this one.

A: Pours a light brownish hue with a nice head. Good retention and some spotty lace.

S: Semi-sweet chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a touch of coffee.

T: Leather and somewhat ashy. Hints of tobacco, roasted malt, chocolate and light coffee.

M: Sort of on the thin side.

D: Pretty tasty and darn right drinkable.

poured into a pint glass with a big pillowy mocha colored head which faded to a film eventually, left decent lacing which each sip, color was medium brown with heavy ruby tones when held to the light
smell was thinly of roasted malts
taste was thin watery roasted malts which was slightly bitter in the end of the sip
mouthfeel was extremely watery and thin, maybe I'm just used to American and Baltic porters
decent flavors slight bitterness and the thinness made this porter very easy to drink

1 pint 9 fl oz bottle

Pours a murky mud brown body with a loose, bubbly tan head. Reduces pretty quickly and leaves a nice amount of lacing.

Smells of toffee, caramel, cocoa. Very malty. I don't detect any hops at all. As it warms even more, I'm actually smelling a little bit of vanilla along with the chocolate.

Nice, roasted coffee beans with a splash of chocolate immediately tasted... delicious. Finishes with a coffee aftertaste preceded by a sourness I can't put my finger on. If I had to guess, it would be sour apples. Butterscotch as well, which is absolutely incredible. Tiniest bit of hops in the end.

What a beer. Each sip I feel I detect something different and it just makes the brew better. From the coffee, cocoa, sour fruit, butterscotch... wow. Very rich, indescribably smooth. Medium bodied, so creamy and refreshing. Extremely easy to drink, I could sip on these alll night.

Appearance - Dark (but not impenetrable) brown with a rocky brown/tan head. Awesome lacing.

Smell - Tons of malts here, kind of hard to place a finger on them. Cocoa and coffee also are clearly present.

Taste - Interestingly lighter than I expected, with the cocoa taking off in your mouth. Coffee is still also there, and there's some interesting bready notes. Slightly bitter finish that almost comes off like a typical lager, but in a pleasing way. Also a smoky flavor very faint on the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very interesting here. Slightly chalky yet light at the same time.

Drinkability - I'm very surprised by this. Finishes clean with no unpleasant flavors involved. Not quite what I was expecting, but very good nonetheless. If the price tag was slightly lower, this would become a staple. As is, I will still look for it.

What a great aroma. Sweet cream. Coffee. Chocolate. Caramel. Simply awesome.

Taste is just as good as the aroma. Dry upfront with a sweet malty middle. Mild smokiness and some significant roasted coffee flavor. Light grassy notes here and there. A slight bitterness lingers towards the end, yet the low alcohol content lends itself to a surprisingly clean finish. So complex yet so clean. amazing.
I could drink 10 of these. This is a true English session beer.

On-tap at the Blue Nile for $8 a pint. Comes a pitch black with a short tan head, leaves impressive lacing.

This really does taste like a true English porter. The flavor starts with mellow dark chocolate and a slight sour tang. As the beer finishes it dives into dark malts with espresso and coffee notes and a spicy hops kiss. This is really a great beer and very true to style. I wouldn't mind having this more often. My only qualm is the $8 price tag. But then again, I'm a cheapskate.

Brewed 12 miles away in an old converted creamary (only been on one brewery trip though).

Brown 50cl bottle conditioned beer, best before 27th June 2009, drank on a cold and windy evening in November 2008 while sat eating strong English Cheddar, Branston Pickle and Spring Onions. The review was completed before I started the eating bit.

Poured into a handled pint glass.

Jet black with only a hint of a deep ruby red colouring when the actual light bulb was against the glass. The tan head swiftly fell away to a thin wispy covering, which was thicker around the collar.

The smell was of toasted malts, 14 different ones are used in the brew according to my bottle along with 3 hops. I couldn't detect any hop aroma, the malts seeing to that. The malts are listed on the label, so you can pretent to find each flavour if you wanted too.

The taste was rich and roasted malts, some burnt others others toasted like the smell. No way could I tell you which one stood out the most although dark chocolate does come into the aftertaste more than anything else. There is more than hint of coffee as well.

A very good English Porter and most likey the second best I've ever had. Bateman's Salem Porter is still my personal number one.

Re-review, correcting my disappointing first bottle nearly 5 years ago. Now, I've got a freshly poured pint in front of me. Let's do it.

Dark brown body, with ruby highlights. Tan head, with greenish tints. Classic.

Aroma: cocoa and cream, with a hint of vanilla. Lush malt, excellent balance, not too green, not too sweet. Clean and mellow. Excellent.

Taste: Minor hop buzz up front, that stays in play, if on the sidelines, while malt moves in. That sour green apple flavor is there, the one that spoiled that bottle for me, but it's way down there, mixed with grassy notes, and then the cocoa, and then the coffee. A complex blend of malts, it's a cliche', but it's also true.
Great thirst-quencher, surprisingly refreshing. And, amazingly enough, unless I'm fooling myself, I can see where the parts come together. Mild ale, brown ale, and a soured old ale, minus the booze .

This would definitely be a great session ale, if not for the high cost. Guess I have to rely on more affordable porters for that, but I can really appreciate the effort they put into it. With each touch to the lips, delicious malt, sweet brown sugar, grassy hops, chocolate-y goodness, slipping down the throat.
Yum, and yum.

Poured from the 16oz bottle into a weizen style glass.

Appearance- Beer pours a very dark, near blood red with a huge head of over four fingers of foam across the top foam is a mocha color and gradually dies down to a fine frosh across the top leaving very ample lacing around the sides. For such a low gravity beer, this is a very impressive appearance.

Smell- Entire butt in olde timey English means "everything but the kitchen sink", and the smell indicates that as well. Ample roasted and chocolaty malts with a very hoppy backbone for an English beer. I'm getting a lot of dark fruits on this beer as well.. Star anise and raisin primarily. The nose on this beer is outstanding.

Taste- There is a very lactic, metallic twinge on this beer that also gives a perception of sourness, but behind it there is a very well crafted beer that I feel must have been past it's prime on the shelf as this one is pretty fresh from buying. It leaves a slight burn on the tongue from a battery acid taste, but there is still a solid grainy dark malted beer in there too. This is a mysterious beer that I wish I had a guaranteed fresh one to go with this one to confirm that there's something wrong with this one.

Mouthfeel- Acidic, metallic, tart, medium full bodied, and medium high in carbonation.

Drinkability- After repeated sips it almost tastes Belgian due to all the off flavors. I think this one was a bad bottle. Unfortunately, I'll have a hard time finding another any time soon.

This is a very tasty, complex, and highly drinkable porter.

Dark reddish brown, almost black, it has a medium tan head that shrinks slowly.

The aroma is a little on the light side in body for a porter but is interesting, very enjoyable, and has nice subtle complexity, including general roasted malt character, chocolate, dark toast, hints of fruit, especially prunes, hints of caramel and coffee, and a stronger mocha aroma when warmer.

The taste is very enjoyable, on the light side for a porter, but interesting and engaging. porter taste. It's smooth, fruity and toasty with light chocolate, light bitterness, hints of wine, and a pepper in the finish. There is a barely perceptible coffee element in the taste, unlike the aroma. It's also highly drinkable.

Poured from a 50cl bottle purchased at Gomer's in Lee's Summit into large dimpled mug.
A - Black in color with red when held up to light. 2 finger tan head.
S - Malt with chocolate
T - Very complex flavor from all the different malts used. Predominant flavor being chocolate. Very well balanced.
M - Full mouthfeel, perfectly carbonated.
D - At @ $5.00 for a bottle, this would be an expensive drinking session.However,this is an excellent example of the style. This would be a great introduction for anyone wanting to try a porter for the first time.

A: Black body with a brown tinge on the edges when held to the light. Poured a three finger bubbly light tan head that dissipated (not too fast) to a generous film. Lacing was thin and broken. No visible carbonation.

S: Dark malt and earthy aromas. Just a hint of caramel and raisins follows.

T: Dark roasted malt a light hop bitterness in the finish. Chocolate malt and a toasted malt underneath.

M: Medium body, but thick and creamy. Very light alcohol develops as it warms (I think I started too cold).

D: Big malt flavor and a nice balance with bitterness. A bit disappointed with feel; I wonder what it would be like from the butt (cask). Not too filling to enjoy a gulp or a sip.

I have a 500 ml bottle which I'm waiting to pop as I warm it up from the fridge....enough of that, I think we're ready to go. On to the beer:

This porter is opaque with shimmering reddish hues at the bottom of my pint glass. Good head and solid retention. Big butterscoth scent races to the nose. It's toffeeish too. It has a very sweet taste to it with the similar toffee/butterscotch flavors. Chunks of french vanilla coffee make their enterence onto stage. I know the yeast is at hard at work, but I can't determine which flavors it is providing. Very very mellow overall...I think I'll have another.

What an ass! Pours a somewhat clear black color with some brown hues around the edge of the glass. A light brown head with limited retention and lacing.

The nose is soft but with a underling malt characteristic. Really subtle, almost blended in a way. Some English malt notes with some minor caramel and some hints latte notes, coffee, milk etc. One plus is that I pick out black marker notes in English Porters, & I don't get any here.

The taste also has a soft, blended flavor that is similar to the nose. The malt profile is more pronounced with more caramel and velvet textures that are similar to nitro beers. A hint of roast and coffee but very light for style. Some lactic that enhances the mouthfeel. Some feint earthy hop notes, but really have to look for it.

The body is light, understandable, but does fall with a watery, wispy texture. But the smoothness is right on for a typical English beer. Would have loved to see more astringency but for a session beer, its ok.

Had this on tap at Rustico (Alexandria, VA).

A = Dark brown, almost black. A bit of red in the edges. Light brown head starts at about 1/4 inch and then goes down to beer algae. Very little lacing.

S = No strong scents. Malty. A bit of dark chocolate in there. Also a hint of something like vanilla.

T = The overarching theme here is: watery. You can taste sweet malts and some chocolate. There are hops in there to add some bitterness. But the flavors are strangely watered down. There's also a little sourness in there that I didn't expect (and just didn't like at all in a porter).

M = The tastes are watered down, and the mouthfeel follows suit. The mouthfeel is very light. Medium to low carbonation.

D = It's too bad. I like porters and was really hoping to like this one too. However, it is too watery and too light for my taste. The slight sourness in the taste didn't help either.

Dark brown to black with a thin more english style head that's a light brown. Smells like darkly burnt coffee with a sweet raspberry like aroma at its base. This beer has an amazing taste. One of the better porters I've had with a coffee like flavor and enough sweet flavor to undercut it. Kind of thick, but definitely drinkable.
