4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark brown. Huge khaki head with pretty clean lacing.
Aroma is milky and slightly coffee and chocolate. It has some prune juice smell, but not much. Smells malty. I also smell smokiness. Smells great.
Taste is creamy and smooth. There’s some smoky and char flavor. It has some coffee and maybe some chocolate. There’s some decent dark roasted malt. It’s flavorful. Easy to drink, but you want to sip and savor.
Mouthfeel is so smooth. It’s creamy. It’s thin, but super drinkable. It’s pretty dry. Leaves slightly smoky aftertaste.
Overall, this is amazing. I like porters and I love this. You must try this one!

Een vreemde potterbier. Zeer donker van kleur, bijna een stout. Wel goed te drinken.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
There sadly isn’t much of an aroma on this thing and it only has modest head on top of a black ruby body. Flavour is a weak affair with only hints of barley and a medium finish. Just meh after some other more spectacular beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with tall, short-lived beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate and coffee. Medium-high carbonation and thin body. Flavor follows aroma with a slight sour and bitter aftertaste. Decent, enjoyable beer overall. However, porter is one of my favorite styles, so there are others I’d go to before coming back to this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a thin, long-lasting off-white foam head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, wood-like, earthy notes. Flavor is chocolate, roast, coffee, with a creamy, slightly bitter mouthfeel. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice and light chocolate and barley aroma. Deep black brown color and translucent. A little bitter and tiny bit claggy in palate. Some woody and cocoa nibs. Tap

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB 12/07/15
Deep near-black ruby body, holds a dense beige head.
Nice roast nose - charred nuts, dark chocolate, charcoal, brown toffee, hints of dark fruit esters & earthy hop.
Smooth body, creamy carbonation, chewy sort of malt texture is a pleasure.
Rich toffee sweetness acts as a spine for delicious roast notes of dark chocolate, toast, nuts, charred wood, licorice, with hints of dried leafy hops & plummy esters. Moderate bitterness, smooth finish.
Very good Porter indeed!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and a little smokey. Not much flavor for a porter. Thin body and not very bitter in the finish. Ok

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Way too thin to be considered a quality porter. Not enough coffee...chocolate....etc. Drinkable....that is it.
