3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Muddy brown/blackish pour with a beige head. Head quickly develops into a small foam. Hints of chocolate, oak and dark fruits in the aroma. Nice taste with a mostly chocolate. Also some burned malts and gentle oak hints. Good finish with a decent light bitter aftertaste. When I poured the last bit of the bottle the hops were very dominating in the taste. Still a very nice Porter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thinner light tan head; mud puddle brown copper. Slight sourness and roasted malt in the aroma and light chocolate. Chocolate, prunes, lactic acid, and roasted qualities come through in the flavor...just is a bit muddled. The body is thinner than I would have liked for the style, but with vibrant carbonation. Slightly odd, but decent.

3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Opaque dark brown with a shortliving tan head. Nose of strangely seductive and endearing fragances - chocolate, roasted malts, raisins and a tiny bit of liquorice.
Rather dry and hoppy, bitter taste with loads of cocoa, burnt malts and dark fruits. Medium body but quite oily texture. After a while the taste gets a bit one-dimensional. Could do with more body, more complexity.
