COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Dark red-brown ale characterized by roasted malt flavour, balances with subtle hop aroma and bitterness. This ale is based on a style originally developed in the 18th Century London, acquiring its name from the city porters who had taken a fancy to it.

Bottle @ America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops. Sourish, fruity flavour, with notes of malt and lozenges. Irregular hoppy notes. High carbonation. Bitter and sourish aftertaste. Not much of a Porter but drinkable.

Pyobon (918) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2012
(bottle) Very dark brown with thin tan head. Pleasant subtle roasted malt aroma. Medium to full bodied with good carbonation. Pleasant quite complex foretaste - dark malts, dark chocolate, candy - shifting through some slightly metallic notes to some reasonable bitterness in a rich long finish. Overall a very nice porter - not my favourite beer style, but I enjoyed this.

Maris (989) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 22, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 24/4/2011. Pours mahogany with a big head.The aroma of dark malt and raisins. Flavour wise, you get a dose of roasted malt and a touch of dark chocolate. Both the sweetness and bitterness are quite muted. Has a medium body. A reasonable porter if a touch on the bland side for the style.

Pour is dark with tan head, slight aroma of chocolate and flavour of cherry, chocolate and fine grain in the finish. Nice stuff

hawthorne00 (2430) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a small tan head. Light roasted aroma with chocolate, vanilla, dark berries and grass. Tastes sweeter than suggested with caramel as well as chocolate malts and mere touches of roast. Bitterness is just enough to clean up the sweetness leaving a mild, dry chocolate finish. Balanced but not all that intriguing.
