3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a very dark color with ruby tints and a long lasting khaki head. Lacing is dense. It’s a really good looking beer. The aroma is solid, no complaints here. There are notes of cacao, coffee, leather, and a perfect amount of sweetness. The palate is reasonably full with medium carbonation. This is a tasty, malt-heavy, straightforward porter. Very clean roasty notes of coffee are in the flavor as well with a bittersweet dark chocolate finish. Slight woody bitterness comes through here and there. Quite solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma faint with slightly/barely smoky accent, decent foam retention after initial pour, flavor is above average for beer though rather bare-minimum for a porter, palate also bare-minimum. might work as a gateway beer to transition the swill-drinkers toward the hard-n-heavy stuff.

This is a very decent porter. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate, dark character, and a thickish palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from a Utah State Liquor Store. I’m a big fan of the Galloway breed, but I think the picture on the label, - with the white lost on the horizon and no black hindlegs to lock it - does not do justice to its uniqueness. And neither does the beer, unfortunately. I wanted it to be extraordinary, but I got no more than a feeble aroma and a faint flavour of roasted malts, with some nutiness and ashes, and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. The beer feels rather watery. And that should not be a reason to have it only in large bottles. I’d love to come back in a few years and re-try a much improved beer.
