3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2015 Pours with an aggressive big bubble head that manages to dissipate in to a dense long lasting caramel foam. Smoke dominates the aroma promising more. Slightly thin mouth feel and the smoke is there but very nicely balanced off by the sweet malt. Chocolate and hazelnut linger in the long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@oldbank. Black, frothy tan head. Chocolate, sweet roast, dark berries on nose. Well carbonated. Some sours. Roasty, slight ashy with a slight aceto finish. Flavourful ok porter. Dry, bit harsh really. Might be unintended though, considering the acidicy, carbonation and all. Ok like this too.

Bottle. This is a pretty good porter. A bit hard to find in Sydney, but if I see it again I’ll revisit for sure.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Tasting at Plonk. Strong coffee roasted flavours and bitterness dominate. Okay. Rerating 4 August 2015 from bottle won in Durham raffle. Pour dark brown black with small tan head that disappears quickly. Huge dark malty aroma. medium carbonation, roastiness, slight astringency that I prefer absent in these styles. Pretty nice.

Bottle 330ml @Beer Hunters
Opaque black color, small beige head. Dry tobacco ash, vegetables in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Tobacco, some wood, light notes of vegetables. Too ashy for my liking.
