4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Dark pour. Nice Porter color. Aroma of chocolate malts, dark burnt grains, coffee beans, some dark fruit, and wooded hops. Tastes of burnt grains, roasted malts, burnt sugars, molasses, coffee bitterness, and a reminiscent of soy sauce. Wow, what a F.n Porter! An amazing session beer, again like the Lager. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to jcwattsrugger. Pours a brown-red with a quick light cola colored head. Nicely roasty character, very distinct older style porter in the traditional British style. Too many porters seem indistinguishable from stouts. The aroma suggests some dark fruit and grass, along with roast, chocolate, coffee. Taste is coffee, cocoa, chocolate, smooth, rich, light roast astringency, feels a bit light on the tongue at first but finishes suitably creamy.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black and opaque. Some roasted malts in the nose. Lots of dark chocolate. Nice aroma lends way to mediocre flavor. Though good and roasty upfront, it finishes with unpleasant hints of soy sauce.
