Damn, it is good. Thick dark brown malt body feels like velvet on the tongue. Smooth roast. Chocolate/cocoa, coffee, soft alcohol note and tinge of sourness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours deep black color with a generous light brown head that retains well and leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate and toasted grains. Taste is a dark chocolate malty sweetness balanced nicely with a toasted grain and citrus hop bitterness. Medium to heavy body with good carbonation which teases the palate nicely. A very well done brew.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 13 May 2014. Opaque brown pour, ruby edges. Frothy mocha coloured head settles to a good covering. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee grinds, hops, dark chocolate, leathery, liquorice. Bitter, roasted flavours, resiny hops are there, too, dusty cocoa, dark chocolate, sweetness from the malts balancing things out nicely. Medium bodied, oily, slick mouthfeel, average carbonation. Bitter, dry finish. A really well put together porter; ticks all the boxes for me.

Pours black with a reddish hue at the edges. Thick cappuccino-colored head that lasts long. Thin lacing. Nose is dark-roasted grain with coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is very well-balanced. A little burnt marshmallow coming through in the aftertaste. Full-bodied, creamy brew. Lively carbonation. Excellent!

Opaque black - brown beer, good pale tan head. Palate is light and airy and semi dry. Softish dark malts, very light roast. A little tangy. Touch of lactose. Trace of orangey fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty standard stuff and lacking the usual Maine fairy dust.
