3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 bottle. Black with a small, brownish head. Sweet, malty aroma of toast, hot bread, caramel, smoke-cured meat, wood, and a touch of salt. Taste is also malty although not as strong; again hints of well-cured, tender meat and salt. Medium body, smooth texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is a better version of the taste itself. Overall the brew is pretty good, not intrusive but nicely balanced and delicate for its style. Points for originality.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml. bf 19-Mar-2016. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of creamy espresso-colored foam. Big nose of chocolate toffee, espresso with cream and lightly tart blackberry. Tastes of dark toasted bread, semi-sweet chocolate, dark berry, apple, caramel and coffee. Finish has some green herb, ash and graham cracker. Near-medium body is smooth and well balanced. I like how the coffee doesn’t dominate, but just complements this (mostly) traditional English-style porter.

Toasted is a really good word for this beer. Nice roasted malt taste. Decent palate for a porter. Great balance. Nice all around.
