3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
So, am I really loving this because I haven’t had a porter in 72 years? Could be. Either way this is pretty fine. Big roasty aroma that thankfully doesn’t come across stiff - this one’s smoothed out around the edges. Deep roast, dark dark chocolate, nutmeg, bakers chocolate, coffee, sweet raspberries, biscuit. No surprise that it’s quite yummo. Piles upon piles of roasted to perfection malts, deep dark choco bitterness that really dries the mouth up, faint berries, milky stuff comes in near the finish then just churns itself into the dryness. As it warms - and I’ve been letting it do that liberally - the coffee comes out more early on and obviously on the finish with a real black coffee with no sugar/cream impression. Very tasty. Just over medium bodied.

Very well done. Pours a rich dark and opaque black. Heavy and thick tan head disappears slowly. Nice and heavy roast aroma with cocoa, espresso and dark toasted notes. Rich and smooth with mild roast bitterness. Nicely done

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a nice dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt with light dry roasted notes is interesting. Taste is dominated by chocolate malt notes with some dry roasted malt and a dry aftertaste. Body is pretty full for style with nice creamy touch and good carbonation. Not a style that I seek often but this one was enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown pour with medium sized beige head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, hint of coffee and faint citrus. Taste of roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, faint coffee and a very faint tart sourness coming through on the slightly dry finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, nicely balanced, good porter.
