3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at JF’s, Brewdog Online, 07/03/13.
Light black (extremely dark mahogony brown in light) with a thin tan head.
Nose is roast malt, chocolate, dark fruits, dark sugar, touch of coffee.
Taste comprises roast malt, toffee, biscuit, chocolate, mineral tones.
Medium bodied with light prickly carbonation - a little overcooked for me in this respect, lending towards a dry finish.
A decent enough porter.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a pretty darn tasty porter, almost has a stout feel with the graininess in the finish. The sweetness is just the right amount so it goes down real smooth.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pepsi cola color with a roasted malt aroma. Taste is very chocolaty with burnt notes throughout. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, surprisingly for a porter. Overall a decent beer that was not too complex but flavorful nonetheless.
