3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Special thank to Big D for this one. Overall, a good brew, not sure it is in the porter league. A bit thin and watery for a porter, but a great tasting dark larger at that. Good CO2, not complex for a porter, leaves with a clean crisp flavor.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was in a large sampler box at the local grocery.
The Pour is nice and black, with a med head of tan bubbles. The aroma is slighter than you would expect from a porter, there is a bit of malt... but not much of anything. As a porter goes a it is abit on the thinner side. The body could be beefed up. The flavor is pretty much a straight roasted malt. A prett good beer.

Didn’t even know this existed. Damn good looking macro beer. Thin head. Malt smell. Extremely sweet and suggary. Way too suggary.

Bouteille 341 ml. 5%. Couleur brun foncé presque noir. Arôme de chocolat, un peu de malt caramel, prunes. En bouche ça se gâte...sucre caramel, malt et Pepsi. Correct mais Porter ? Non !

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Finally finding a single of this stuff, I’d been intrigued by the macro-bastard-brewery as to what they could possibly add to the porter mix that could be worth buying.... not interested in buying a six pack, finally at a local "dep" I found my answer in a single bottle with that shady label that seems straight out of the seventies. Like a Lincoln Continental all decked out in shag carpet, big permed hair and bell bottoms on black men, this brown and beige label with handwritten "porter" was sure to be coooool drinkin’ as the P-Funk all-stars blasted from the eight-track. Right? Well, it pours with muddy brown precision and a foamy dark beige head. The aroma is barley that disappears into the night, lost to too much carbonation. The flavour? It’s like a rotten candy that your uncle offered to you out of his back pocket because he forgot to get you a present for your birthday. And you’re like "Ya, all dat", and that candy is melting and smelling in your hand, all that sugary mess gettin’ all over your palms. but you try it anyway because you love your uncle, but then you got this cloying sweetness on your tongue like you been eatin’ too many of grandma’s breath mints in an attempt to get high. Sugar high, that is. In short: you betch yo ass this stuff sucks.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rating #99 of this beer! Bottle from Quebec. Pours a deep brown with cola-color highlights, and a noisy tan head. Aroma is a sort of dark sugar thing. Taste is really just dark sugary malt and caramel, like they decided to make a malt liquor except half as strong for the gang-bangers and pimps. Tolerable, but not going to finish this.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep brown-black with a frail light mocha head.
Aroma: Light tang with some decent chocolate notes, some grain/cereal, smells sweet.
Palate: Medium-light body with moderate effervescence, a bit watery.
Flav.: Weak vaguely chocolatey kinda odd sweet gross malts, nondescript fruitiness, not very good; oddly sweet with no bitterness to speak of and a strange sweet malt beverage finish.
I could resist trying this throwback. Now that I’ve tried it, I can’t resist throwing it out.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bouteille de 341ml. Le velvet cream porter n’est plus l’ombre de lui même. couleur noire avec des reflets rouges. nez avec peu d’odeur, pas de torréfaction. la bouche est mince, manque de caractère, peu de saveur de malt chocolat. On dirait une bière blonde colorée.
