4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This particular Porter poured a small tan head with fine-medium bubbles. The lacing was fair. The body was brown in color. The aroma was that of chocolate and it had a smooth taste and mouthfeel. There was ever so slight of an aftertaste observed. I did not notice much of a coffee flavor with this Porter. This was one heck of a good Porter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee, brown sugar aroma, mahogany, with a small cappuccino head. Coffee, with cream and sugar flavour. Medium bodied, a touch bitter. Pretty good, but it would be hard to live up to the history.

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.
