4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It was voted number 1 porter at our local beer shop as voted by the patrons. Smells like chocolate cheesecake from Schlotsky's deli.
Dark and rich.
Slightly alkaline yet not bitter at all. Seemingly foamy going down yet very pleasing and smooth to swallow. Goes well with many foods.
Being more food than drink, this one will fill you up.
I recommend this beer highly.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Free Press, Cambridge. Incredibly dark brown with a nice looseish tan/khaki head and generous lacing. Liquorice, coal, slate aroma: dark things. A candied sweet taste competes with fresh hop bitterness. Tastes stronger than it is, which is no bad thing. Soft but effective carbonation. A top porter.

Een mooie porter, mooi donkerbruin van kleur met een kleine schuimkraag. Aroma van koffie, zo ook de smaak.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at home. Pours deep brown with a light beige head. Aroma is freshly grinded coffee bean with something floral to it, like rose petals. Light, almost watery like mouthfeel, yet creamy towards the mid and pulling dry by the end. Taste is green paprica, cold coffee and medium dark chocolate. Impressive given the low alcohol.

Bottle, 355ml. Dark ruby with a frothy, creamy brown head. Aromas of dried fruits, chocolate, molasses. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth chocolate sweetness with a moderately bitter, but surprisingly tasty fruity character. Modest, but very pleasant.

Really strong fruity caramel aroma. Quite syrupy tasting and a real hit of chocolate. Gorgeous dark colour.

Black brown colour with compact head. A smell of coffee, roasted dark chocolate and malts. The same is the taste with little bitterness in aftertaste. Different from a draught stout, but definitely as nice! Great to drink ice cold.

Ook na de clam chowder, uit plastic of fles. Ruikt zurig naar drop, grappig. Mooi donker met dik schuim. Smaakt fris voor een porter maar wel lekker. Update: Iets dieper uit de fles minder fris, sterke en ook lekkere koffie smaak.
