3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an opaque black with a very slight mahogany edge tint and a one- to two- finger light tan dense foam head that retained very well but laced poorly. Aroma of light coffee, sweetness, vanilla and dark earthy malt. taste initially of strongly roasted coffee that subsides plus caramel sweetness and vanilla with a low bitterness. Medium body, a bit thin for a stout. Smooth but not so creamy (quite a fizzy mouthfeel for a stout) and with sweet vanilla on the finish. Nice.

Bottle. Pours opaque brown-black with a thin tan head. Strong chocolaty aroma with a hint of coffee. Mild bitterness, low sweetness, a little roast and some acidity. Medium body, soft carbonation with a long finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark black colour
Aroma. smells of roasted malt backed by a nice smokiness and slight syrupy sweetness.
Taste. a nice smokiness is there throughout, and what i can best describe as a roasted cocoa and roasted malts in general.
Overall. nothing too special, but still drinkable.

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.

An easy going porter. Would appeal to curious beer geek. Coffee an ash on nose. Roasted in taste. Really easy on tongue and soft at back end. Good entry porter. 330ml. 5.2%. 1.4std drks.

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.
