It’s a very dark brown porter with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is very nice with notes of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavour also has notes of chocolate with hints of licorice, coffee and a bit of dark fruits. IMO it’s a really nice one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Brought from Sweden. Courtesy of Brandman.
Reddish dark brown almost black colour with big fluffy sand head.
Aroma is bitter hops, chocolate, some sweetness, roasted malt and dark fruits. Delightful combination of hoppy bitterness and Porter roastiness.
Flavour is more straight forward with strong roasted malt flavour with coffee, liquorice, salty liquorice, dry bitter grassy hops and ash. There’s no sweetness nor chocolate in flavour. Rich and full.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. A deep, black ruby pour yields no head of significance and no lace. Pepper and spice in the nose along with molasses. Taste is olive, cardboard, pepper, chalk. Iron and heavy metals come through. Dominant character is cardboard. I have here in my notes: "Tastes like Wal-Mart receipts soaked in cigarette water." Typical Avery mess.

"hopped as heavily as some imperial porters, without the big body or heavy roasted flavors and abv. the body is a little thin, but smooth. the aroma and taste with the malt and dry hopped balance really works, especially as it warms. if it had more body, it’d be among my favorite porters."

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep brown/ruby with a big, cream, tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and chocoff. Tastes malty, with big chocoff, fruit, and a roasty, somewhat rauchy finish. Medium in palate and fairly dense and bold. To me, this is an awesome porter...certainly a repeat buy, and a top 25er.

Bottle as shown. Pours a dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head. The aroma is very hoppy with caramel and chocolate. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a roasted malt with cinammon and a spicy dry finish. A good porter from Avery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Black color with a red hue, thin light brown head, good lace. Slightly translucent. Light and crisp/smooth carbonation. Hoppy and malty aroma, some chocolate. Satisfying amount of hops, definitely a black IPA (and a pretty good one, too). Mostly bitter. Some sweet taste, a bit of spice. Tasty enough to be called drinkable
