4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Loose head over a dark ruby colored beer leaves interesting lacing on the glass. Roasty chocolaty aroma. Great roasty flavor but don’t really like the hop selection for this beer. Really a perfect looking beer. Medium bodied. Someone went through a lot of work preparing this beer. Good work on this one!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown body, off-tan head persists.
Decent nose, mild roast, toasted nuts, touch of burnt sugar.
Medium to full body, restrained carbonation, drying texture.
Body has plenty to offer - burnt nutty malts, some dark sugar notes and underlying earthy hop. Lifted bitterness, dry lingering finish.
Solid porter. Great every level example.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewhouse. Jet black colour with a foamy tan head. Appearance resembles espresso. Sweet caramel and roasted nut/malt aromas. Flavour is pleasant with a chocolate and coffee finish. Moderate hop usage making this very easy drinking. Lacks a punch to finish, which again, makes this sessionable

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark colour with a foamy tan head. Caramel, coffee and nuts in the aroma, with nuts most present. Flavour is earthy, nuts and some caramel in the finish. Not that sweet like many other porters can be, which suits my palate well. Medium body with soft carbonation. A good beer indeed!

345ml bottle. This is a solid porter that doesn’t lack anything, but it also isn’t outstanding in any way.
