3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This characterful, tasty rye porter is one of the better Little Creatures single batches. Would grab a few for winter if it became a part of their regular line-up. It nails the style nicely. Looks terrific. The rich aroma promises much and the beer pretty much delivers. Cacao, dark chocolate, all-spice. Dry finish. Very easy drinking for the strength. Smooth in the swallow. (On tap at Station Bar, Katoomba)

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours solid black in appearance, head typical of a porter. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Perfect level of carbonation, to compliment the medium to thick palate. Taste, bitter coca with a smoky finish and a lingering dry bitterness. The beer gets a little sweeter as it warms up. I've been looking for a beer like this all winter, pity it's a single batch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thick black with a cappuccino coloured head and heavy lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, espresso, crushed nuts and roasted malts (perhaps a trace of soy sauce - thanks maneliquor). A long, pleasant and cleansing bitterness wraps itself around a complex dark chocolate, nut and spice flavour profile. The rye provides a fantastic point of difference to a lot of porters. Once again the single batch has nailed it, with a challenging but incredibly drinkable beer.

1L squealer. Pours deep black with a mocha head. Aroma has camp fire notes with chocolate wafer and a slight spice. Big earthy/spicey notes in the flavour with a bitter coffee backing and a slight nutty creaminess. Goodbye Mr Obadiah, the pleasure was certainly all mine.

Deep dark brown body with a tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the nose which is not as noticeable in the taste, smooth, pepper and spice coming through. Drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a lasting head.
Nose shows roasted malt, roasted coffee and biscuity rye.
Very similar flavours, but with rich roasty characters throughout. More coffee notes too.
Carbonation seems a bit high, could be lowered a bit.
