3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark chocolate colour, almost black. Nice frothy head, a little unusual for the style. Chocolate coffee aroma. Almost an iced coffee texture, not as thick and string as most porters, but nice. Mocca after taste - nice, I like it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lovely aromas of chocolate and roasted coffee rise from the swirling glass with a little aniseed to boot. The taste is quite milky with a good deal of chocolate, coffee and aniseed as well as loads of grapefruit. It’s strength is in the smelling and although the taste is more than pleasant, the aftertaste is slightly metallic, quite salty and not all that pleasant. Combined with the slightly thin palate and somewhat short finish, it’s not a great drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite a hoppy aroma, lactose, dark malt. Large foamy head, dark body. Hoppy than I expected, very smooth though. Quite thin as well. Has a slightly cola taste as noted from someone elses ratings, good description. Very easily drinkable.

From a 33cl bottle, pours a dark brown with a small beige head, that did not stay long only to leave a thin ring around. Aroma of light roasted malts, and coffee. Flavors of light roasted malts, coffee, sugar and cola. Light sweetness, light mouth feel, with a cola taste finish. Overall very light dimension brew and sweet. Not my cup of coffee.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Bitter espresso and cocoa mix with faint leafy, herbal hops in the aroma. It is quite hoppy for a porter, with plenty of lemon and herbal hops flavours up front. These give way to a mild white chocolate sweetness, which leads into plenty of dark, roasty malt and espresso in the mid-palate. Mild lemon hops reappear in the finish, combining nicely with the bitter malt flavours. This is a very good porter from Kooinda.

Bottle from Mane Liquor, Perth. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Decent citrus notes, with some caramel, solid cereal malts and dryish finish. Good. Near black with a big, off-white head. Sweet, milk chocolate and prune porter, with some vanilla in the roasty finish. Good.
