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.

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.
