phaleslu (6551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a deep, virtually opaque brown with a small lighter brown head. The aroma is a bit smoky, with roasted malts, toasted sugar, dark chocolate, salted caramel, and a hint of dark fruit and anise. The flavor starts out the same, but instantly drops into more soy and rubbery notes, with just a little bit of chocolate and brown sugar to balance. Medium-bodied, with very little carbonation and a flat, bitter mouthfeel. Very strange. I’m glad I only had a little bit of this.

ALLOVATE (2416) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 12, 2014
Cellar temperature and into a chalice. Low pffft and a swift release of gas before nothing. Into the glass it goes and it pours like used engine oil. An head of homebrew consistency forms and falls. Loose, mucky deep brown suds last little more than the time it takes for a whiff and a smile. Aroma is dominated by bready, fresh baked biscuit soaked in rich, milk chocolate. There is a good dose of Marzipan also, some thick, treacly chocolate liqueur, light heat, touch of Iranian dates in syrup and savoury fruit mince. Quite rich, decadent, sweet and sultry on the palate with a breathable burn to remind you who is boss. Oily, soft and sticky is the mouthfeel. Almost lifeless with a deeply viscous, fruity, bitter and warming finish that is amazingly shortlived in some ’lovable’ elements. As the aroma suggests it has loads of chocolate, biscuit, Marzipan, fruit mince, a hint of lightly roasted coffee bean and carob bean. Husky with a bit too much burnt malt to tense up the tongue between sips. There is nothing truly unique about this one and its links to Porter are just a little flawed but it is definitely an aperitif of a beer suited for slow sipping. Not bad, just not excellent. (12fl.

stevoj (2191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Black and silky with brown/ruby creamy head. Smoky, chocolately aroma, hints of oak barrel. Some alcohol warmth is apparent in the aroma as well. Taste is dark and smoky, chocolate, extremely smooth, yet sharp at the same time. Nice!

UPDATED: APR 19, 2014 Thick. Dried fruit and coffee aroma. Needs to warm up a bit before drinking. Taste is sweet dried fruit, malt, alcohol, bitter finish. Lasting boozy, dried fruity taste. Very good porter.
