Dark brown, black porter with white head. Taste of chocolate, roast. Not a thick porter, a bit boring for me. I missed the dry after taste.

Dobry porter moze troche zbyt wodnisty. Ciemny w barwie z palona piana ktora utrzymuje sie dosc dlugo. Wyrazna goryczka z nuta czekolady.przyjemny w smaku .

Watered down porter beer with a brown color. Can see through the glass thanks to perfect filtering. In aroma I sense typical for a bitter style notes with the addition to milk chocolate. Taste is malty with short finish. There is dough, chocolate and some delicate milk coffee. Far from interesting.

500 ml clear bottle purchased and enjoyed in Fife, Scotland.
Very dark; nearly opaque in my Sweetwater pint glass.
Aroma: lightly smoky and sweet, with a suggestion of smoked meat.
Flavor: a bit too smoky, with bittersweet chocolate and faint spiciness
The smoky aftertaste suggests black bread plus faint hints of chocolate and coffee.
Medium body and carbonation.
O: a smoky porter.

Bottle at home from asda. Ruby red, mahogany brown coloured pour with a fluffy cream head. Aroma is soapy, dirty socks, faint coco powder. Flavour is composed of woody, harsh tannin, berry, hot alcohol, coco. Palate is moderate carbonation. Powdery on the tongue. Pretty shit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Asda Coleraine - black with an off white head. chocolate malt dominates the aroma. Lots of roast malt in the initial taste, moves on to a dry bitter roast malt finish which really lingers. Mouthfeel is full and creamy.
