Yeast from a shipwreck is a new one. This is a nice traditional strength porter with a toasted malt aroma. Itís ashy bittersweet with a mild bitter aftertaste. Dark brown, not heady, medium body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a fantastic porter. Looks like cola, with a thin, tan head. Aromas of roasted grains and dark licorice. Tastes of smoky grains, dark chocolate notes, mild coffee, and dark licorice. Ends on a bittersweet chocolate note. Extremely smooth, and easy to drink. This is delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is standard - roasted malt, coffee, overall subdued. Light bodied, dry, woody, roasty finish. Simple but solid. An excellent session porter.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Mild chocolate, molasses, lactose, earth aroma. Black brown with no head. I had my hopes up with the aroma, but this bottle was completely flat and almost flavorless. Maybe the slightest bit of roasted malt came through.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours and looks like brown cola. Smells like the Mediterranean, tinny and olivey (which I like). Tastes like someone turned a Yuengling into a Porter, which is to say itís very drinkable. Probably a great entry level Porter or a good, refreshing go-to. Not for the uppity!

bottle... dark brown with a light tan head... perhaps this is one that needs to be drank fresh or on tap, the aroma is decent with light chocolate but the taste is off with lots of olives

Bottle. Pours a medium brown, clear, with a thin tan head. Body is medium to full, carbonatino is average. Mild chocolate aroma, not sweet. Overall very good porter.
