3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Clear darkest brown with average, creamy to frothy, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Minimally sweet and roasty dark malt aroma, a touch of coffee. Very soft palate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty with dry, roasty notes, a touch of chocolate and a constant bitter hoppy overtone. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle - pours black with a respectable white head that laces down the glass. Espresso aroma, smoky and liquorice first taste, with an oily mouthfeel. Bitter after taste that holds for well over a minute a sip. It deserves a chance if you see it and are wondering "should I buy it?"... I would.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from Asda. Black, thin shortlived off white head and moderate condition. Gentle farmyard aromas initially then a coffee and chocolate bitterness wih hints of butter, liquorice and a little plasticy phenol in the nose, soft and dry in the mouth with bitter coffee and a sweetening chocolate note, lingering coffee in the mouth with a faintly fruity tang.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best before July 2010, this 500ml brown bottle was drank and reviewed in April 2010. The beer was poured (twice) into a bulbous tulip glass (a stemmed Palm badged one).
The colour was almost black, held up to the light source it revealed that it was really a deep, dark ruby red colour, a rich foaming tan coloured head sat proudly on top.
The aroma was all about burnt/roasted malts, as was the taste once the beer was in the mouth. Rich, creamy and full of those malt flavours already mentioned, lovelly.
Impressed with this, my second beer from Acorn. Not too sure about the rear label claiming chocolate, cherry and liquorice flavours, but I suppose if your tastebuds are finely tuned you might be able to find those flavours, I couldnít, I just liked the beer!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle From Fletch the monkey, postal trade!
Opaque brown-black with a thick and creamy mocha head as if poured through a sparkler. On the nose its licorice and dark chocolate. In the mouth its rich and roasted up front with amazing mouth feel for its relatively low ABV. Milk chocolate with a coffee bitterness in the long and dry finish. If its this good in bottle Iíd love to try cask!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: Sweetened whole-wheat brown bread in a bottle. Meh
How: From a bottle at Mondial de la BiŤre 2011
The look: Mahogany body topped by a small tan head
In long: Nose is a bit toasted, whole-wheat bread and walnuts. Taste is soft brown whole-wheat bread, brown sugar, light toasted notes, earthy notes, forest floor notes. No hops to speak of. Soft carbonation. Too sweet for its own good. No brewing problems per say, just not a fun beer to drink. I had more than enough of my 4-5oz sample and at 4.4% it should be a beer to drink by pints. Iím afraid my rating might be taken as an insult to this new up and coming English brewery. But honestly I donít give a shit. And the funny thing is, people who donít give a shit are always assholes. Ironic isnít it.

A very good but not exceptional porter. Like many Acorn beers, it really does the business, but not with aplomb. In fact itís kind of "straight forward" and immensely drinkable at the same time. May be Iím missing something...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good as black with ruby trim and a fat tan foam. Enticing Cadburyís Chocolate Eclair dipped in black coffee, plummy yeast, Black Jacks aroma. Mellow, well-roasted taste with blueberry streaks and a lingering, ash-flecked finish. Full cream, whipped mouthfeel with a well-judged tingle of fizz. Fine beer.
