500ml bottle. Smoky smell with hints of coco. Nearly black in appearance with an off white head. The taste is bitter, malty, treacle, chocolate, caramel and coffee. The mouth feel is heavy and thick even slightly chewy you could say. Overall a good example of the style and woth a try.

Bottle from local MaS. Rich aroma with lots of dried fruits and a hint of roast. Clear dark brown colour, small head that disappears rather quickly. The taste reveals a beer full of goodness. Aaah I hope this stays the same even after the SAB Miller acquisition of Meantime. Classic representation of style, dried fruits combine harmonically with subtle roasty chocolate notes. Very easy drinking. Very good.

500ml bottle, drank straight from the bottles so canít comment in appearance. Aroma is caramel, Malta and burnt toast. Quite heavily carbonated. Apart from sweet caramel, not much in the taste with a stale finish.

Nothing really exciting about this one. Brown in color. I can even see through it. Head is small and beige in color. Watery with streight forward burned malt flavor. More water and a bit of black chocolate but I might be a bit exaggerating. Itís an easy drink for those who need to quench their thirst and they hate clear beers.

Aroma: coffee, chocolate, citrus, lactose, caramel, roast; Taste: intense sourness, slight sweetness, slight bitterness; Palate: light body, watery texture, abrupt finish, average carbonation
Smooth, a bit too sour and light bodied, could be improved.

Good porter aroma, but for a 5.5% beer, this tastes a bit thin. Not a bad porter, but not as strong as some of the other beers in the new range

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: smoke, toast, chocolate
Appearance: dark brown, no head
Taste: little sweet, medium bitter
Palate: very thin, no body
Overall: aromas start interesting but without a body and aromas suddenly disappearing this is not one to repeat.
