4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with slight hints of red. Medium brown head. Aroma of roast and chocolate and dark fruits. Initial taste is bitter/alcoholic, but the longer the beer remains in your mouth the more chocolate/sweetness you can taste. The finish is nothing to shout home about, but the beer definitely lives up to its name with its richness and subtlety.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with red highlights and a diminishing tan head in the glass. The nose is dominated by dark chocolate and black coffee. Big roast flavour up front with some bitterness; followed up by some cocoa nib and espresso and maybe a bit of raisin or fig toward the end. Finishes with a light sweetness and a little smoke. A very enjoyable Aussie porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a thin broken tan head and a little broken lace. The aroma is very clearly of sweet fruit and chocolate and this also dominates the flavour too. There is also some late developing bitterness on the palate and in the aftertaste. It’s a great Chocolate Porter, but its one of those Chocolate beers that might become a little sickly after a while.

Dark brown opaque beer. Tidy cream - tan colour head. Light semi dry palate. A little papery dark malt, mild and slightly aged tasting. Mild orange hop underneath. Mild dark chocolate powder. Dry finish. Okay if a bit clunky.

Dark red/brown. Excellent chocolate aroma. Slightly fizzy but carries the malt well. Over the top chocolate flavour but quite pleasant.
