Served on Nitro. Opaque brown black body, Thin, patchy beige head. Deep and rich, this is a really balanced, excellent Porter. Big roasty chocolate tone, but also a nice hop balance. Rich, woderfully executed. Phenomenal, World Class.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a little sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and grapefruity hops. Flavour is roasted malt and chocolate – with a smooth finish. Very drinkable.

Loved it! Smooth, dark, rich taste. Wish I had bought more of them. A new favourite to have with a roast dinner.

Nice nutty and roasted taste. A but earthy in the aroma. Not sure if this has to do with this being expired but its thinner on the palate than I would expect for a porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Deep brown color with some reddish highlights and a thin tan head on top. The aroma is rather chocolaty; ash, toasty malt, and very light dark fruity notes mix in. The body is creamy but a shade on the thin side. The flavor shows bitter dark chocolate, sweet dark fruit, roasty-ashy malt, some sweet mocha, and dry bitter hops. The finished product is a touch sweet, but there’s enough bitterness and roast to counter most that. This isn’t great but it is a very solid, well-rounded, Porter. No complaints.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is of faint chocolate and oats. Flavour is of mild bitterness with a tiny hint of citrus. Kind of poor finish though.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The almost non-existent aroma was malty. . The flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt mildly vinous toasted malt dark malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
