3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown color with a thin, light tan head. The overall aroma is rather light, but that aroma is strongly comprised of chocolate with a hint of roasted malt and a decent hop character. A nice mouthfeel that is not too thick or too thin. A nice flavor profile that combines the chocolate and coffee with a nice hoppy finish. A very pleasant porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby brown color with a thin layer of foam. Aroma is somewhat malty with a light English hop presence. Flavor is thin and roasty. This could be thicker, but is a good example of the English style.

Chocolate maltiness and very smooth. Typical for English porter. Hops not overly-asserted and this brew is relaxing to drink.

This beer was a brown almost black color with a tan head. Smells like banana. Not much to flavor but had a nice nutty aftertaste.

Very dark with a ruby hue. roastey and chocolatey bitter dark cocoa. Nutty notes and coffe hints. Too effervescent, rather thin and metallic on the finish. Fizzy and foamy, but tasted alright.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark red body, small tan head receding, roasty nose. Well-balanced coffee and chocolate flavors. Mild finish with cocoa notes. Hops don't assert themselves much. The fairly light body is the only flaw.

Excellent English porter, with a sweet, smooth, yet complex taste. Definately one to try when sampling porters!

Nice complex porter. One with lots of hidden flavors that keep you working. Can be a bit challenging. This is the porter to set sites on if you really wanna know this genre. Some are bigger(sam smith), some are mellower. This one gives lots of real full flavors, that go great with a big fat steak.
