On tap at Lucky Labrador, pours a dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is subtle, with a touch of roast and a little cocoa - pretty weak. Flavour brings out moderate cocoa powder and a touch of roast. Really weak stuff though - nothing interesting here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) clear, dark brown, almost no head. Nose if amber-style English malts, light chocolate, quite roasty and dark (perhaps burnt) caramel. Tastes like an amber, earthy noble hops, acrid notes like old coffee grounds, bitter and very roasted. Low carbonation and medium to thin body with an old coffee linger.

On cask at Lucky Lab - pours a dark red with no head. Faint aroma of grain, chocolate and coffee. Super thin body with sweet caramel tones. Pretty bland but I still made it through twenty ounces. There’s plenty of Stumptown breweries making far superior porters.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Lucky Lab (Hawthorn) - 06/11/12.
Very dark mahogony brown vergeing on light black with a thin tan head that retains well.
Nose comprises light roat malt, light vegetal tones, touch of liqourice.
Taste follow - a little better than a somewhat subdued nose and no traceof the veggy tones.
Medium bodied, light spritzy (ie too much for a porter) carbonation with a dry finish.
