2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coarse light brown foam that will last a while. The aroma is dark chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is rich and good, but not as heavy as many American porters often are. It has good dark and slightly bitter chocolate as the main theme, but also light coffee notes and English licorice lurking in the background. Malt is burned and provides a good basis for maintaining the aforementioned flavor notes. Its hop bitterness is sufficiently and maintains the taste long. A nice all-round porter who just could not put the largest footprint in memory, yet has many good elements in it. An approved porter.

12 oz bottle.
A "thin" porter with a creamy mouthfeel. Taste of chocolate and roasted finish. If you think that porters are to "heavy" for warmer weather, give this one a try.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a black color with a nice creamy head and some lacing. Smells of toasted malt and chocolate. Tastes of cocoa powder and malt. Finishes slightly sweet, which I don’t mind at all. A pretty solid beer here. Wish it had better aroma though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice aroma, however it is not a strong one, subtle, but good. Beautiful black color very dark, you can barely see light through it, but low head. The taste is a classic example of the style, my girlfriend enjoys this, and she is not a fan of beer in general. It is sweat but not overpowering with a hint of chocolate in the after taste. Nice mouth feel with very little carbonation which is typical of a porter. I would recommend this and drink it again.
