Great example of a porter, big smooth mouthfeel and complex dark roasted character including chocolate and roasted nuts.
Had one on tap recently with a distinctly vinegary finish so assume the keg was old. From the bottle it's fine, not a hint of the sourness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml Bottle picked up at Sam’s Beverage Shop in Beirut. Pours a dark thick brown almost black color with a fast to go brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, nuts and sweet wood. Taste is very complex and mellow but much like the aroma. Palate is smooth and leaves you wanting more. One of the best beers in the Middle East.

Leather nose. Mahogany, headless. Medium body. Rich leather flavor, but surprisingly, no other nuances. Not a typical porter, but by now I have learned that this brewery doesn’t do typical. Unique and delicious.

The colour of black coffee (so more sort of dark brown than black), nice malty nose and the flavour of a really good chocolate malt milkshake. Very drinkable indeed.

11.2oz bottle. Brown-caramel body. Thin beige head. Medium bodied, smooth and easy on the palate. Kind of like a schwarzbier. Nice cocoa schwarz.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours oily black with a very slight tan ring. No lacing. Overall very light carbonation. Aroma of light chocolate and fresh coffee grounds. Taste is sweet vanilla tinged coffee. It really lingers on the tongue. Not cloying at all. Very velvety mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Wish it finished a bit more dry.

bottle from TWM Sterling - I didn’t know what to expect with this one, but found myself pleasantly surprised. It had a bit of the malty soy sauce thing going, but I quite liked it.
