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.

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.

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.
