3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sugested by my trusted beer guide (Joe) at Pacific Wine Merchants. Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle a deep, dark brown (almost black) with a foamy moca colored head. The aroma is definite dark chocolate, roasty malt, and a bit earthy. Taste has a pleasant, light sweetness that’s followed by a medium bitter and a moderately long finish. Full body, and slick with moderate carbonation that quickly softens. Very nice all around. Really enjoyed this.

Smells like a bitter with some roasted malt. Lovely black color. Good full, balanced taste with a bit of coffee; not very complex but rather decent. One of the better porters I’ve tried though palate feels a bit thin. All in all quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full black body with tan minimal and puncturing head, oily, smooth - the mouthfeel is great. Stron aroma of roasted malt, oak, coffee, darko chocolate and raisins. Taste is complex, full of dry roast and coffee, followed by chocolate sweetness and plums, then comes back to being dry in the coffee-ash aftertaste. A great english porter, gotta get some stronger and BA ones from Harviestoun.

Det här var en seriöst bra sak, smaken var sammetslen med sköna toner av choklad, sötma och kaffe. Nej, det här var en riktigt fin sak och jag kan inget annat än att rekommendera denna öl för alla.
