2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with little in the way of head. Malty with a bit of roast and scarcest hint of chocolate and a very light watery palate. Dissappointingly weak porter. Mondial 3T (Capflu).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight mineral nature thriving within lactic roastiness...A portly and velvety mouthfeel gives off a milk chocolate and almond sweetness...A quite drinkable rendition, conducive to merriment...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of carmel and roasted malts is nice. Looks a little watery. Dark brown body with a tan head that disappears completely and very fast. Tastes a little thicker than it looked. The same smooth but a little subtle, carmel and roasted malt flavors. Kind of leaved my mouth feeling like I just puffed on a nice cigar.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice brown clear color with a full tan head. Some roasted malt aromas but nothing exceptional. Some caramel and bittersweet flavors with a little roasted malt. An ok porter but nothing too exciting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I would agree that it is more in the English style than US style porter. I felt that it was a little week in mouth feel and flavor was OK but not as good as many others

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rather thin, deep mahogany. Burnt caramel aroma. Bitter chocolate flavor with a good amount of british hops at the finish. Slight creaminess in the mouth. A decent porter I’d say.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mahogany colour with a rapidly dissolving thin tan head. Aroma is caramel and dark chocolate. Flavour is very English thanks to the generous malting and Kent Goldings hops. True to style and quite tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
color is brown with reddish notes. head is a tan ring around the glass. aroma is both roasty and acrid, slightly astringent. flavor is chalky with bitter notes, moderate roastiness. hops are pretty assertive in this one.
