4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gentle metal and aged malt on the nose; this isn’t as fresh as would be ideal. Looks great though; a rich, consistent, coffee brown color and an appreciably thick cream head. Despite a dilapidated aroma, the flavor is great, albeit definitively mellow. A porter, cut and dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a shaker. Pours translucent dark brown with medium brown highlights with small beige head. A little lacing, thin body, medium/low carbonation, and light chocolate aroma. Taste is light dark malt and light vegetable hops. A little thin, but pretty easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
35,5 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 28.08.2009
Aroma is somewhat roasted with toffee and licorice. Flavour has roasted notes, some toffee, licorice and hints of coffee. Quite thin palate. Does not work, just too straightforward and thin.
That ’NO CENSORSHIP’ makes me smile as the Gonzo porter was blocked from Alko due to the cigarette in the label.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish brown colour with medium off white head.
Aroma, wood, chocolate, coffee, nuts.
Full oily body, medium carbonation.
Taste is very watery, with nuts, chocolate and coffee.
Not bad, but also not that good.

Not one of the best of Flying Dog Brewery. The beer is lame and misses a specific taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious, prominent aroma of hops, chocolate and sweet caramel. Pours a dark brown with a smooth white head. Complex taste involving hops, spices, chocolate, butterscotch and caramel. Fantastic Flying Dog ’bite’ thrown in there too, but still goes down smooth. Loved this porter.

Not a bad porter. Drier than most, with a nice smooth, roasted chocolate character.
