3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown color with a moderate tan head that slowly dissapates leaving a sticky lacing behind. Aroma consists of toffee, roasted malt, perhaps chocolate and oatmeal. Taste is a very robust combination of roasted malt bitterness and chocolate/ toffee sweetness. Very flavorable porter

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown, with a light brown head. An aroma of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Taste is very satisfying, the full body lingers on the palate, a thick malt sweetness. Has a taste of plum / raisin in the background, with just the right amount of hops for a satisfying finish.

Dark beer. Light carbonation, burnt flavor, lightly sweetened. Not big fan of porters.

This is a sweet porter. Itís not too heavy and has coffee hints and chocolate tints. Itís a shame itís getter warmer outside because I would like a few more cold days to enjoy this.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tastes like the little brother of an Imperial Porter, but at over 7%, itís no runt. Aromas and flaveors of chocolate, caramel, and coffee on the malt side, with a nice hop-bitter finish. One of the best porters Iíve had in a long time.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice strong aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel and coffee.Poured a dark brown/ black with a thick creamy tan head that very slowly receded into a nice creamy cap. Left lots of lacing. Tastes of roated malt, milk chocolate, coffee and burnt malt. The malt was robust, the chocolate sweet, the coffee bitter and the burnt malt was softly smoky.
Body was medium, texture was sticky, carbonation was very soft, a dry very slightly bitter finish. This is a very good Porter!!! I will definitely buy again. The coffee bitterness was bit too much, but the other flavors were excellent and it has a excellent finish. I will definitely buy again! Another fantastic brew by Arcadia! Served in a Pint.

I must admit, I only bought this because it had Winston Churchill on the bottle. And the strong aroma and the strong porter taste just wasnít for me. If your into porters, this may be for you, but iím not, so...
