3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
360ml bottle from 16th St.Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a very dark brown with thin tan head. Good lacing on this one. Aroma is both smoky and bitter with hints of coffee and a thin whisp of perfume I can’t quite identify. Taste is thick with coffee, bitter chocolate, roasted malt, a touch smoky. More akin to a stout than a porter. The finish is lingering and slightly boozy. Overall this is very good if slightly big for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: 7/10. A very sweet, chocolatey aroma of malt.
Appearance: 4/5. Pours dark brown with a thin, chocolate-brown head.
Taste: 7/10. Initial chocolate, then strong coffee, with a surprisingly intense taste of alcohol despite only 6%. The hops are stronger with this porter than most I’ve tried.
Palate: 3/5. Smooth and wet, quenching on the tongue, with a long, long bitter finish of hops.
Overall: 13/20. It’s a decent, different porter. If you’re looking for a porter with more pronounced alcohol flavor and a more intense bite of hops than normal for the style, you might enjoy this one.

Draught @ Bungalow. Dark brown body, fine-laced tan head. Rich malt, cherries, dash of soy sauce in the aroma. A little thin and fizzy for a porter, but flavours of dark fruit, bitter chocolate and coffe are supple and rich. Can’t fault the taste- really easy drinking and morish. Great stuff.
