3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: draught at Frog & Onion Pub in Bermuda. Poured black, with a small, thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, with some nuttiness mixed in. Medium-bodied, with a slight oilyness to the finish. Roasted malt flavor with some nutty notes mixed in. Perhaps light notes of coffee and smoke as well. Good, not great.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Frog and Onion: This one pours a fairly dark brown color. You canít see through it, yet it is still clear. There was a finger of tan head that left some lacing. The aroma is good, but a touch light. Mainly coffee and roasted malts. The taste is also good. It has a slightly lighter body, but still a lot of taste. Coffee and roasted malts dominate, with some bitterness. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
has a nice aroma of coffee and dark roasted malts. Overall very roasty and toasty with a semi-sweet malty aftertaste. Pretty good stuff here.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown pour. The nose is slightly toasty and a little bit vegetal. Slightly roast with a definite baked nut type of aroma. Light pale malt with a little bit of light earthiness. Itís not a great porter at all - but Iím not sure what else you would call it. Astringent.

Bottle (and bottle condition by the look of it). Top stuff. Black. Hint of liquorish, hint of sweet raisin or something similar. Roasted, toasted and really very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a bruin body with an off white head, and nice retention. Sweet and malty, a hint of cherry and ash character. Wood tones with a light mineral and mild bitterness. Okay.
