2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 Oz bottle in a English Pint. Poured black, as it should, with a One Finger head that quickly disintegrated. Very smooth texture, and tastes of Chocolate, coffee and perhaps Wood? No lacing to be had, but still a fulfilling brew. If I need a porter on the cheap, this is definitely a good choice :D

"for $5.99 a sixer (or a buck for a single) this is a steal. not anything special per se, but a more than serviceable porter. pours black with thin khaki head. a tad thin. the aroma and taste are a bit of a hybrid between an american and london porter...nutty, toffee, roasted malts. quite pleasant , and a pleasant surprise at this price point."

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Serving: Bottle. Dark brown pour with a short lived tan head. Stale nose with a bit of roast and caramel. Weird acridic bitterness on the tongue. Light caramel with a touch of roast and earth. Not much else. Weak body. Pass on this one.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brown pour. Tan head. Little lacing. Smells of not much. Butter bomb. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

This beer just isn’t any good. It is brown and headless in the glass. It smells and taste sort of vegetal and brackish. It does have a touch of caramel malt character but seems to be oversweet and sluggish because of it. Overall, this is neither good tasting nor drinkable so I can see no real redeeming value.

Not particularly good by any means. Pours black without much head or lacing. Kind of a sour dishrag finish with some light roast aroma. Bottle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From TJs. Reminds me of old school microbrew porters, much thinner and less robust than today’s varieties. Mineral taste. Serving: Bottle

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, foisted on me by Ian. Pours black, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, peat, oak, and brown sugar. Sweet and malty, with a slightly sour, toasted bitterness. Medium body, acidic, a little chalky, and astringent. This is a overly roasted porter, with an unpleasant flavor and mouthfeel.
