4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a mahogony color. Thick tan head at start, had some weird pitting in the head. Itís cute. The head thins out considerably. Pretty decent lacing going on as I drink it.
Aroma is of chocolate and deep roasted coffee. Thereís also dark roasted malt.
Taste is bitter, but thatís okay. I certainly taste the coffee and chocolate, but the dark malt is prominent. But itís not just dark, itís almost burnt malt. But itís yummy. Itís bitter, but again, tasty.
Mouthfeel is deceiving. Itís bitter, but the mouthfeel is medium. Itís not very heavy at all. In coffee terms, itís smooth but bold. It finishes pretty bitter. But thatís because of the style.
Overall, I really like this. Thereís not much else to say about it. Itís what I expect from a porter, and maybe a little more.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color . Very fluffy foamy head. Taste is a hard malty flavor with a very poignant coffee flavor. Very good

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nothing amazing, have had far better examples of English-style porters. Fairly thin in taste and mouthfeel, with some liquorice and chocolate. No big flavours that jump out at you, quite watery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Poor a dark black with tan head. Aroma roast and coffee. Some sweetness to taste at the beginning but finishes with chocolate and a little more bitterness than normal. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. A brown body with thick brown head that faded to about an inch. Nice retention. A nice malty aroma rich with roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor had nice roasted malts and the chocolate malts seemed subdued. A slightly bitter aftertaste. Dry finish. Smooth body.

Smells of soy, petrol, anice and leaves. Tastes a bit like it smells, with additional smoke and some pine. Peristent bitter aftertaste, which is nice.
