3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Resembles a glass of diet cola with a flaky beige head. dark fruit vibes from the smell of things , i get dark cherry and raisin.Obvious toffee. roasted malts -licorice too. To drink this stuff you get a bitter sweet beer -with a slightly thin watery palate, that’s a shame because there is a deep character on opening ,rich toffee -with a winey texture to things but this finishes disappointingly thin for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, as Black Isle Organic Porter, 4.6% abv) Dark brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Slightly tarry roast-malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate, mocha and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Moderately roast-bitter and delicately sour flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Quite dry roasty malt character with notes of dark chocolate and coffee; dry and moderately roast-bitter finish with notes of coffee and a tinge of berries. Decent Porter. 11.VIII.13

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out of the bottle in a unclear dark brown / blackish colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of bittersweet chocolate and croissant. Taste of bitter unsweetened espresso, strong coffee, nuts and malt. Hints of brown sugar. Finishes quite dry and bitter but definitely tasty and nice.

Not a bad one. Starting off a bit sourish with some coffee in the back. Middle is bit watery. Ends with roasted malt and roasted nuts. Definitely one of the better beers in the world. Could be a bit heavier with some more depth.

England: South Littleton. This is a lack luster porter that feels thin and lacking in the flavour dept.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. The colour is deep and dark reddish brown colour with a medium light beige head. Roasted aroma with nuts, coffee, wood, roasted almonds and leather. The flavour follows with a nice roasted touch, but is also sweet with some caramel. Has a slick and light mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-balanced and easy-drinking porter.
