   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Linc (737) - Sydney, - JUL 11, 2007
Freshly poured, the aroma is strong and full of chocolate and coffee. Unfortunately, with the tight head and flat body that comes from using a sparkler, the aromas are soon lost. Serving at subzero temps doesn’t help with the flavour release either. First few sips are really pleasant giving a great first impression but my palate soon got used to the full malt character and started to concentrate on the underlying diacetyl character. Rancid butter really isn’t that appealing to me so it really slowed progress towards the end of the pint. I really liked this one at the start but it got less and less impressive the more I drank.

Med brown. Mostly caramelly aroma. Sweet and with a touch of sour, I guess not as well -developed as I’d like.

WilleLW (203) - Lund, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2013
Black coloured beer with a off-white head. Aroma of malts, some coffee and hints of chocolate. Taste of coffee-bitterness, weak hints of chocolate and some roasted malts. Unfortunately with a somewhat watery body, otherwise it is pretty good. Not too interesting.

Keg at the Lord Nelson, March 2012. Dark brown with a hint of red and tight, creamy off-white head. Sweet, milk chocolate, coffee and berry fruits, leading to a dryish finish. Good.

A good porter from Lord Nelson. Goes down smooth, had quite a few sitting outside watching the bats.

GT2 (9102) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Nitro at the Lord Nelson Brewery on the Rocks in Sydney Harbour. Pour was a clear ruby with a nice Irish dry stout nitro head- thick and creamy beige with great nitro retention and sheety nitro lace. Aroma, of course, muted albeit some tobacco and Whoppers malt balls come through. Taste is light coffee, creamy, caramel, light bitterness from roasted and chocolate malt. Slightly oily on the palate and even a bit syrupy. Certainly not watery like most dry stouts.
