3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Black with a thick two inch dirty white to tan head.
I am having a hard time pinning this down. Dark malt... slight burnt smell. Okay smell, but not great.
Burnt something... probably malt. It tastes good, but not very interesting.
Crisp for a porter. Light to medium body. Higher carbonation.
The higher carbonation is annoying now halfway through the glass. The taste was simple but good. For overall drinkability it is just above average. It is bottle conditioned so I will let a couple cellar for while and see what happens.

Nice creamy light dark ale. I like the chocolaty body but finishes with a hop finish giving good balance and smoothness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is of roasted malts and yeasty dough. Appearance is opaque black with large 3 finger-width beige foamy head and mild lacing. Taste is medium sweet and light smoky bitterness. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with surprisingly thin texture, average to lively carbonation and moderately long minimally bitter finish. Overall, a little bit thin and bitter for me for the style but enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like your typical porter. Smells like a nice mix of coffee and chocolate with some almost burnt malts. Taste is a light chocolate with a short bitter finish. Honestly just picked this up because ive heard boulevard does good things, and they were not wrong.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Near black with one finger head. Quite a bit of chocolate malt. Very light on the roasted nature. Bitter hops in the finish.

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.
