3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml brown bottle. Pours out a medium brown colour with ruby shades, looking a lot lighter in colour than I would like to see in a porter, looks fairly clear. Small, thin beige head with tiny bubbles. Nose has quick coffee, caramel, mild roast. Taste has dark chocolate and black coffee, pretty dry, roasty bitterness. Lighter body than expected, carbonation is medium. Not a lot of oak character. Overall, a lot lighter than I was hoping for, remains drinkable but nothing I would revisit.

An average porter true to the style, salty, sourish finish. Herbal, piney, bitter chocolate. TCP antiseptic? I struggled to finish this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a small off-white head that leaves only a small trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A little on the thin side for the style, but otherwise, this is quite a nice brew, tasty and easy to drink.

330ml Bottle - Very dark brown, almost black in colour. Coffee, roasted malt, dried fruit and plain chocolate in the aroma. Roasted, chocolatey and malty taste with notes of coffee, liquorice and roasted malt standing out. Not bad at all.

Bottled 07/09/12. A cola black coloured beer with a dissipating grey head. A fairly roasty porter in the nose with hints of sweet fruit. There is coffee in the mouth with more fruitiness, Pretty nice.

Bottle. Cheers to Leighton for the generous pour. The pour’s deep brown with a medium tan head. The nose is rich milk chocolate, mild chili, some roasted coffee beans. The taste is sweet chocolate cake, lightly toasted grains, charred wood. Hints of espresso. The body’s a little bit watery. Overall, while perhaps a bit sweet, I did enjoy his beer. Approachable, nice.
