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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost stout-like -- in fact I think I liked this a little more than their stout. Dark fruit sweetness with a dry, roasty finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 cola brown, light at the bottom and edges. finely bubbled tan head. light cold coffee nose. looks, smells and tastes like a brown porter, at least when itís served frigid cold from tap. after it warms a bit the nose opens up with more soft malted milk, a little touch of roast, a small bit of cold coffee flavoring and some light maple or toffee sweetness. comes across like a brown ale with mild coffee character. beautiful look though.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at brewpub. Bit weak in the body and lacking the chocolate and roast one expects from a porter. Not too tasty.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Another deep red-black beer from this brewhouse. Mild, funky roast nose. Smells as if touched by the beer wrinkling hand of oxidation with some wet sock notes. Acrid and wet sock flavor, nearly sickening at some points. I donít really extract much coffee flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Poured black with beige head, almost like a stout. Malty aroma with a bit of floral. Full malty flavour, some light chocolate notes. Lasting finish of malt and a tiny bit of fruit.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a dark beige head. This beer is sweet. Very sweet. Itís quite lactose-like, has a horehound candy finish with a mild roastedness at the end.

Pours very dark brown with little head. Aromas of chocolate, dark toast, and perhaps chocolate. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is smooth burnt malt with coffee and perhaps chocolate. Really smooth. Dryish. Astringent. Hints of dark fruit.
