3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/2 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of dry hops, sweet malt, oatmeal, slight pale malt, slight roasted malt, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an English Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, roasted malt, sweet malt, dry hops, oatmeal, hint of pale malt, and a hint of liquor. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, body, and feel.

A great porter, with some lovely chocolate malt aromas, but enough hops to cut through the abv.

Reddish black beer, thin white head. Malty coffee aroma. Flavour is similar, with a dash of chocolate, vanilla and some tart, fruity hop. Mellow, hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts with a slighty sweet coffee note. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate and there is a subtle nuttiness. A smooth beer but a little thin.

I could be way off the mark with this but my initial reaction was Black Jack gum! Smells just like a fresh pack! Being a porter of course the sweet sugar taste isnít present but licorice, licorice, licorice screams outta the glass!

Thick head. Dark brown, almost black color. Smells wine and bread that is about to be toasted. The mildest non-nitro beer Iíve ever tried. Sweet bread, roast that is there for you in the aftertaste as well. Light bitterness in the finish. Good.†

Way too hoppy for a porter, definitely not "black", smells like water. Horrible beer.

bottle into goblet glass. Deep dark brown with very small head, slight sweetness then you get the roasted malt with a hint of coffee. It is smooth and light and pretty well balanced, overall a nice porter.
