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.

Dark brown with ruby highlights. dry chocolate and redcurrant on the nose, dry roasted malts, touch of residual sweetness.Some higher alcohols as it warms gives a touch of vegetal harshness in the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured dark reddish brown with a thin broken white head. The aroma was weak but there were malty hints. The flavour is medium bitter with liqourice and some yeasty notes on the palate. This isn’t a real porter in my opinion. It lacks that chewy malt in the flavour. It’s rather drinkable and quite refreshing, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a rather small head. Faint aroma of roasted grain and licorice plus shy hints of butter, pumpernikel bread, earth, chocolate and dark fruit. Many aroma elements, though unfortunately failing to impress. Medium carbonation, watery body, not really flavourful. Rather strong bitterness, with roast and chocolate in the flavour and earthy notes in the aftertaste. Boring.
