Dark brown color with a khaki head. Nice chocolate aroma, plenty of cocoa, and some moderate roast qualities. Plenty of toasted malt and toffee sweetness, maybe a little vanilla. The sweetness on the palate is very well pronounced. Tons of toffee, caramel, and toasted malt. Cocoa, chocolate, and a light bitterness. Mild to moderate roast and just a hint of coffee.

Maris (983) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2012
From a 650ml bottle on 15/7/2012 (shared with Butz - thanks). Pours close to black with a smallish head. Has a strong aroma of chico baby and milk chocolate. The flavour is very sweet with lots more milk chocolate, some roasty malt, and a touch of caramel. Has a slightly thin texture. Nicely balanced, with just a enough bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. A very solid porter.

6/25/12 notes: bomber, $5.99. Aroma very bready, malty, toasted oats; broad. Flavor has nice balance of dark chocolate, breadiness, mild essence of plum. All very well integrated, finishes dry but with subtly chocolate malt, honey sweetness. Very well crafted and delicious.
