3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Coppery black colour with a mediumsized beigeish brown head, that leaves nice lace. Aroma is caramel, some liquorice, mild ashy and chocolaty notes to it. Flavour is toffee, ashes, some chocolate, mild coffee, roasted malts as well as some slight herbal notes. Rather bold palate and very smooth and filling to drink.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lost a quarter of it in an eruption of foam, not please
A little watery, and a lack of nose, but it grew on me
Well balanced with chocolate and a memory of espresso
A session porter, perhaps

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from MediaCityUK, Salford 
Black, massive tan head, over carbonated, some lacing
Aroma of mellow roasted malts, soft sweet dark malts
Taste of mellow roast, quite rich dark malts, nice dark chocolate, no fruits, tasty
Palate - Medium carb and body, over fizzy, quite sweet. Finish of mellow roast, quite sweet plain dark chocolate afters
Overall - Good porter, spoiled by being over carbonated - once this had settled down (with a bit of stirring), it had quite a smooth mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle picked up at NWAF in Manchester last year. Beige-brownish head to a clear mahogany coloured body. Lacing rings down the glassware. Dark, mid-sweet, caramel aroma. Malty flavours, caramel, chocolate and lactose hints. Malty ending with leafy hops. Medium bodied. Has got its moments of decent beer drinking (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand-pulled pint in The Bear, Hodnet Shropshire on 7th Jan 2014.
An easy drinking smooth Porter with all the usual attributes you’d expect from this style of beer.
Dark body with a good head of tan coloured foam.
Mild chocolate aroma and taste from the heavily roasted malts, no real bitterness within this brew. Dry enough and flavoursome, moving towards a semi-milk Stour sort of taste and feel if I’m honest.
Pleased I tried a pint.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Interesting brew. Aroma of chocolate and stale laundry. Quite a full bodied beer on first couple of mouthfuls, then feels a little thinner. The flavour of toast and chocolate spread is quick to come and go. Not overly impressive.

500ml bottle. A tart, tangy taste. Similar to Titanic Stout. Not sweet. Unsure what the brewer intended.
