3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from M&S Cambridge Rail Station. Translucent chocolate brown with a large loose tan head. Light chocolate malt aroma. Taste is sweet, light and malt-led. Weak body. This isn’t bad but it’s fairly nondescript.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black pour, small white head. Aroma of soft chocolate malt. Taste has some milk chocolate, caramel and indeed a slight smokiness. Bit thin, but that’s normal for a 5,5 abv porter. Nice beer, better than expected.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red with a light tan coloured fading head. On the nose you notice aromas of bitter chocolate, cold coffee, malty with a hint of metallic aroma. The texture is briefly lively, offering some sweet-bitter chocolate flavours. Lightly bitter with a medium finish. Lacks a punch but still ok to drink.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 0,5l bottle. BBD: 05.2015 Pours clear dark brown to red liquid, medium tan frothy head, Aroma: malty, roasty, dark chocolate, Taste: medium sweet, medium light to medium bitter, dry, roasty, some minor chocolate, malty, bit watery, Palate: medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, abrupt sweet finish. Overall: Disappointed, thought if it is from Meantime brewery, it should be something amazing, but actually Lvivske Porter (Baltic porter as well) is way better, even though it is a Carlsberg brewery... :\
