Bottle as a birthday gift from Jill. Cheers! Hazy brown with a thin cream head. Mild chocolate aroma. The taste is chocolate and toast. A little uninspiring, but nice enough.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted, grain and dark chocolate for the malt, heavy herbs for the hops, moderate musty for the yeast, with wood, dust and cardboard in the background. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, beige, with good but slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is muddy dark brown. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation with a dry and chalky finish. This Porter has a lot of good aspects to hit, and a few not so good, but overall its uniqueness made it interesting.

kaserov (215) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 2, 2016
Color negro oscuro, opaco, con capa de espuma amarronada de un dedo de grosor (poca retención). Carbonatación media. Aroma a malta tostada, café e incluso algo de lúpulo. Sabor a malta tostada, cafetón y algo de amargor del lúpulo. Me hubiera gustado algo más de cuerpo. La carbonatación le pega, eso sí. Buena.

Stew41 (1941) - Phuket, THAILAND - SEP 18, 2016
Plenty of heft for a porter (which now weighs in at 5.4%). Roast, milk chocolate, early at least but the beer dries out back palate. In keeping with the style I guess. Nice casual drinking.
