3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
another good offering from 3 ravens. nice full boddied malt character balanced with nice punhc of bitterness as any bitter should have. having that extra malt backbone makes this more intersting as most bitters seem to taste all the same.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tried on tap at the Sail & Anchor. Dark copper body with short head. Caramel and crystal malt and figs in the taste, not too rich nor complex, alcohol just noticeable. Drank alright easily sessionable but thats it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500ml bottle on 26/1/2013. Pours a very cloudy light amber with a small head. Has a very slight aroma of fruit, spice and toffee malt. The flavour features a bit more toffee malt, a bit of caramel, some sweet citrus and dark fruit, a touch of spice, and finishes with a medium bitterness. The palate is a touch watery. Okay, but I was expecting more.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2015 [1/10] 500 ml bottle, 14C. Pours very dark brown with a small creamy beige head. Complex fruit, nut and earth aroma. Tastes barely sweet. No Porto characteristics. Smooth and nutty. Firm finish. Everything’s well integrated. Balanced and nuanced. [4.1]
[4/11] This one (and last couple I’ve had) is overcarbonated. Fixed by a swirl or three and letting it sit, but a shame. Otherwise lovely deep malts and nice balance the same. Very fine. 
[3/15] 1/2 an inch of beer, 5 of head. Pear-flavoured travel sweets and boot polish. Undrinkable. Sigh. 2 1 3 1 5 = 1.2 After some thought, can’t leave it sitting at 4 after that, so averaging last two scores.
