3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml (Petalax, BB 09/2012)
Deep brown color, steady beige head. Aroma has toasted malts, some earth and tartness, chocolate. Medium-bodied. Toasted malty, a bit earthy cellary, hints of soya sauce and then black chocolate. There is some light fruity chili in the finish. Not the most "common" Brewdog.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Quite much black colour, mediumsized brown fluffy head. Aroma is mild toffee, caramel, some slight ashes and roast and dark dry fruits. Flavour is leather, some liquorice, mild salty and ashy notes as well as some toffee. Pleasant Porter, which probably suits some heavy meatdishes very well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black with a red tint and a thick frothy tan head. Smell of light roast and a faint hint of chilli. Almost no smell. Medium frothy body and some graininess from the carbonation. Taste of rasin, licorish, roast and coffee with slight spiciness on finish. Sort of bland compared to th other Brewdogs. Rather a simple porter with some spicy lingering hints.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours black with a small white head. Nose is not overwhelming. I struggle to get much of anything. What I do get is light scents of chocolate, maybe some coffee and light grassy notes. Weak. The flavor is slightly bitter. More sweet than not and a lot of mettalic notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, aftertaste is long.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted this at BrewDog, Glasgow in January 2012. Cask, draft flow system dispense. ruby black in colour with a thin buff head. Strong rich malty aroma with dark chocolate, coffee bean and fruit cake all present. surprisingly thin mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark complex malts deliver a rich christmas cake base with sultanas, raisins, sour victoria plum and bitter chocolate. Very little in the way of hops detected in the aftertaste. Finish is smooth and very malty with rich mocha coffee, roast grain and liquorice full in the mouth. An excellent porter and highly recommended.
