3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle. Big, bold Porter. Pours dark opaque brown with thin head. Big malt and bitter chocolate flavour. Medium body with average carbonation. Not my favourite style of beer, but this beer is fairly well done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 650mL bottle (cap printed "bottled Nov 13, 2013"). Dark black, creamy look, full tan head. Aroma is predominantly roast malt and coffee. Taste is the same. Medium body, milky texture, quick finish. Didn’t get any chocolate like some others got, perhaps the fact a significant number of other raters did get chocolate and a significant number of others did not suggests a fair bit of inconsistency between batches.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Noir avec une mousse marron riche. L’arôme de caoco et malt. Le goût est d’abord du caoco ensuite une mélange de caoco et malt avec une amertume légère en finale. Carbonation moyenne. Très bien équilibré, très bonne! Je dirai que c’est peut être un petit peu trop sucré.

really impressed with this one really great smell of choc. and pretty much exactly what you would expect a porter to taste like nice dark color with a great white slightly brown head and taste a bitter sweet rich smooth taste that stays and gets better hell fucking yea driftwood

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark opaque brown with a thin but consistent tan head with a touch of spotty lace up the glass. Aroma consists of roasted malts just short of being burnt, black malt, chocolate, coffee, and bready. Flavour is lightly burnt, coffee, chocolate, and a slight dark malt dryness.

Pours a clear black with a red hue and a frothy brown cap that leaves some lacing. Aroma of chocolate, sweet dried fruits,, roasted malts, coffee and cocoa. Taste is smokey roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and a nice spicy/tart hop flavor. Excellent easy drinking robust porter.

For some reason this felt half way between an average porter and a Scotch ale. Pours quite dark, seems to have a lot of black patent malt (but what do I know?), very smokey on the nose... so you’d expect viscosity to be think, but it isn’t. Quite robust, I didn’t pick up much sourness at all, quite a dry finish though. I think if this weren’t so thin it would be rating much higher, because the aroma and taste is great... hey, dare to be different though.
