3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle @ YNWA. Pours a deep red golden with a medium off-white creamy head. There is a lot of lacing going on. Aroma is mild, lightly roasted - very british in feel. Flavour is roasted as well with a dose of fruityness. Surprisingly nice.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki)
Dark reddy brown, almost black. Thick beige head., lively and self-supporting. Bitter, part ginger part grapefruit, hoppy aroma, some apple too, but buoyed by a huge rich malt aroma. Deeply roasted rich maltiness, covers the tongue and stays for a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, small white head. Aroma is weak, malty and caramellish with hints of also coffee, roast and a bit chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, nuts and some cookies. Quite watery to the palate, but otherwise it was very nice when being served at about 13-14 C degrees.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Dark, ruby red with wheaty, malty chestnut-coloured foam. Bready aroma. Strong, chocolate, sweet and tangy taste. Prickly mouthfeel with sharp finish. Enjoyable, best of the night. But ultimately a let-down.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks pretty nice, dark red with a dense & long lasting head. Has a kinda boring malty, slightly chocolate-ish aroma, not much going on. The aroma is not unpleasant either. Inoffensive cookie-cutter porter taste which I enjoyed for about two sips. The mouthfeel is nice and creamy but a bit watery. Altogether one-dimensional and unexciting, but pleasant to drink. Not bad, but pretty forgettable, which is a pity since its one of the only porters available here in The Netherlands.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Reddish dark with a beige head. Yeast and citrus seemed to dominate the typical porter aroma. A hint of tobacco in flavour which was is also a bit acidic yet fresh. Soft palate. Needs character.

chestnutbrown/lightbrown head. Nicearoma of choco, coffee and smoke. The taste is very light, and smoky. it looks better than it taste.
