Its a good, dark, sweet beer.

Just the perfect amount of smoke and caramel flavors, nothing overpowering. The mouth feel is light as it should be, this is not a stout. One of the better porters out there, and a great example of the ideal porter taste profile. profile - November 4, 2012
Not sure i am qualified to rate this one as I have had very few English beers. Black like a stout. Light brown head refuses to die. Aroma of toasted malt, slightly nutty, nothing overwhelming. Soft comes to mind as the word for mouthfeel. Rather thin. Nothing lingers. I get mostly roasted malts, in a pleasant, not intense way. Is this the session porter I have been looking for? Perhaps...

Very good porter. Not too bitter. Very smooth on the back end.

A good beer, but not an everyday drinker. A little sour and slightly smokey.

A light porter. Very drinkable. Not bitter or sweet nor anything distinctive

25JUL12, Flying Saucer, Nashville, TN Bottle Sweet, kinda hoppy aroma with a medium- thick mouthfeel. Flavor is chocalatey with some other malt flavors. Fairly dry on the finish. Doesn't pair as well witan the smoked porter does with the French dip. Creamy chocalatey taste. profile - July 16, 2012

Well balanced with a tart toffee flavor. Subtly roasted with a little bit of hop flavor in the finnish.
