Dark brown in color with a white frothy head that quickly dissipated leaving a bit of lacing down the glass. Has a chip lately roasted aroma. Easy drinking with a silky mouthfeel starts out with a chocolatey caramel malty forward followed by a molasses cinnamon spice flavor and a bitter chocolate finish. Some slight earthy hoppiness too. Interesting easy drinking porter with a molasses spice taste. Just ok but decent

It has a funny smell. However it tastes great! Wonderful flavor with smokey malt chocolate coffee flavors.

More fizzy than I like in a porter. Not as much malt and chocolate either. It's ok though.

Yup, it's a porter.

Flavorful, dark and porter tasting. Great for a cold winter night.

Most disappointing of Sam's holiday pack. Lacks taste with a bit if hop to barely save it.

Not too bad, very hoppy but not overwhelmingly so. Still get a decent mild smooth rate to it. Not my favorite but not something I scoff at either.

Good porter with medium flavor. Rough end.

Strong porter taste. Sort off an odd sweet finish. Had better Porters, but this will get it done. Xmas eve 2012.
