1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Way too much champaign carbonation, which is wrong for a porter. The smell is way too sweet as it smells like opening a new can of latex paint. Taste is horribly sour. Totally wrong mouthfeel. I am pouring this out.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle bought at GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Dark brown colour with a small tan coloured head. Mild chocolate and caramel aroma, with some slightly sour dark fruit. Quite high in carbonation. A little light in body, and somewhat disappointing really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque black with a noisy, fizzy 2" head, too carbonated for lace. Taste is bitter chocolate malt that adds earthy dark fruit through the palate on its way to a fizzy, still the same bitter, finish. Long after the finish there’s a nice hop residue left on the tongue. I understand this is 5%. If so, the taste is much bigger than one might expect.

Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small tan head. Palate is airy and crisp. Light dark malts. Sourish fruits - mostly apple! Little paint and glue ester. Dark fruits in the light airy finish. Wonky!
