3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours dark brown, not quite cola but not quite black. Quick tan head fades to a thin halo without much lacing. Aroma is a bit nutty and chocolatey with a slight metallic tinge. Taste is surprisingly thin, with coffee, toffee, and something that’s between chocolate and burnt malt. Not bad, but not great. Wouldn’t drink again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown, huge white head, bit of a gusher. Little aroma, thin body, not much roast. Really thin, but fairly smooth. Not very ’porter-y’. Pretty blah beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home - 08/06/12 thanks to Sam.
Dark chestnut brown approaching black in colour with a medium off-white head.
Lots of roasted malts on the nose and a good pinch of coffee. Tastes follow from nose allied to a some nutiness, background earthy hop and a touch of smokiness.
Medium bodied with a dry finish. Decent porter.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2012 22oz bottle. Black pour, creamy brown head. Aroma has loads of chocolate. Nice amount of roasted grain character. Whoa, dominate roast flavor.
