Bottled@SBWF2007. Deep amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is really pleasantly roasted malts, some hoppy bitterness along with mild woodenness. Flavour is quite much the same. The roast stays really long and also has some mild candyish hints.

33cl bottle from a colleague. 5.0%. Dark dark brown colour lasting beige head. Malty fruity aroma. It’s kinda ok, some chocolate but mostly malty. Some fried butter. It’s not great, but not terrible. Starts ok but not sure about this melted buttery finish. odd.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
light brown colour, a dusty, sooty malt aroma and palate, which is quite dry throughout. This beer, along with a couple of other traditional examples, uses the original ’brown malt’, which defined the original porter style, but disappeared until very recently.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body with medium tan head. Aroma is rich cocoa and roasty. Taste is mildly sweet, cocoa, bit of coffee, finishes with a bit of roasty (and some hoppy) bitterness. A little thinner than I like, but it's certainly not thin.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown in color with an off-white head. Smells strongly of prunes and dark fruit. A light roasted malt, some milk chocolate, and a hint of toffee malt sweetness. Tastes of cardboard, prunes, and cocoa powder. Some chocolate sweetness, a fair amount of dark fruit, and some raisins. A bit watery, too.
