Sydney Harbor with the family in tow. Not the best of porters but it’ll do in a pinch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an opaque black colour with a brown tint around the edges. Developed a one-finger beige coloured head that diminished slowly and laced OK. Aroma of molasses, subtle malt, and a trace of coffee. Taste has a sweet profile of malt followed by roasted grain. Light body and a bit watery. Smooth, soft, slightly sweet, somewhat bland finish. Ordinary.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark brown with a bit of tan head. Nose is coffee and burnt notes. Taste is pretty sweet, with some coffee, marmalade and some more burnt notes. Not bad, but slightly watery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Virtually black with just a tinge of brown. No head whatsoever making it a very unattractive beer. Subtle aromas of chocolate and roasted malt. Initially watery mouthfeel, however a nice chocolate flavour develops. This moves into a tinge of bitterness on the mid palate and then a sweet chocolate (perhaps slightly too sweet) and roasted malt finish. The flavours lack depth, but do linger. A decent porter without being exciting

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black colour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and some cigarette smoke. Taste of coffee, roasted malt. Dry aftertaste with a hint of chocolate. A little watery feeling but still okay.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black Kent, black as the ace of spades..... aroma is actually quite thin (although that could be because I have hayfever). Light coffee, it’s not bad but certainly are better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma bread and burnt rye (but in a good way); appearance is uniformly black with tinges of brown at the very edges; head is slightly tan, no sign of lace; taste is pleasant, a touch earthy and sweet moving on to a mildly bitter and smokey palate, but some roasted malty sweetness hangs around the longest. Overall, a pretty nice porter, not overpowering, and not boring either (but only just).

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
There’s a disappointingly brief head on this, but the aroma is like a having a caramel crown with an espresso - chocolate, caramel and loads of biscuit and coffee. There’s more of that biscuit flavour in the mouth with some chocolate and coffee in the middle of the tongue and a little hops on the sides. The only knock on this beer is that the palate is a little thin.
