Bottle. Sweet malty aroma like most porters. Black body but held to light a deep red. Small tan head that disipated quickly. Thin body texture with sweet flavor up front and choclate chalky flavor in the finish. Not a bad brew overall.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep burgundy pour with no head. Aroma is fainly roasty and wet though too restrained. A bit thin in the mouth, with the taste being too sweet and not at all roasty enough. Slightly oxidized.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on 10/5/05. Poured a medium burgundy/cola brown with a 1" cap of caramelly-beige head. Nose picked up quite a bit of lightly-roasted chocolate malt and mousse... but there was something going on that wasn’t too enjoyable. Flavor was of pretty much the same stuff... sweeter, roasty chocolate malts, some caramel, floral hoppage, and unidentified candy-like sweetness. Smooth, but not memorable on the palate. Roasty chocolate and the faintest bitterness at the finish. Just OK.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with a small tan head. Average for a porter in many ways ... no great intensity or complexity, but drinkable balance of chocolate malts and sweetness, with classic British hops to provide some ibtterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A red-brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, as well as lighter notes of hops and roasted malt. The flavor is dry and quite roasted, as hard roasted malt. An OK beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear dark brown in color with a spare tan head. The only downside is a slight mild cheese aroma mixed with roasted malt. But otherwise this is a nice solid porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, via nolankowal. Pours a clear dark brown with a small light brown head that fades to a thin covering quickly. Standard Porter aroma, heavy on the chocolate malt with a nice roasted malt accent. Fairly dry with some coffee as well. Flavor follows aroma in step, chocolate and roast with moderate bitterness, a little burnt astringency, and a dry chalky finish. Medium bodied with a moderate fine bubbled carbonation. A decent Porter, certainly drinkable.
