Taddy Porter

Taddy Porter (Samuel Smith's)

Ratebeer 3.72 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

We never see enough of this style in BC. The aroma calls to you with a siren-like voice. It haunts you with roasted coffee beans and chocolate; yet sweet like milk. As you sail closer, your palate crashes upon a light rock of carbonation, but it is the taste that pulls you under. The roasted cocoa and burnt toast scares you at first, but it is creaminess and smoothness that washes over as you stare into the darkness.

Aftertaste +1

The lingering is not as poetic; just a slight roasted chocolate than ends clean.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

This is not meant to be a heavy hitter, but a nice easy drinking beer.

Value +1

This should be the definitive porter style.

Ingame Enhancement +1

With more L4D maps everyday, it just like my beer fridge; never the same taste twice.

Overall 7/10

I love a good porter. They are light and easy drinking, yet flavourful.
