4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma has nice rich dark malt character, lots of toffee, chocolate. Clear dark colour. Rather small head, but that may be due to quite low temperature at pour. Tastes lets all the sweetness shine, mainly lots of toffee and chocolate, but has a definite bitterness standing behind the bold flavours. One can even find notes of English hop character in the finish. Rewarding beer, I like it very much.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle as “Meantime Chocolate Porter” bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Clear, deep blackish brown colour; Razor-thin head and residual soapy light-beige foam which fades in 10 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and no carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of roasted dark malt, with hazelnut cream, coffee, strong nuts, very light tartness, milk chocolate, sugar, caramel, waffles and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of dark malt, with strong roast and nuts, faint smoke, caramel, toffee, black coffee, light cream, light molasses notes, biscuits, strong lemon, strong bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is very roasty and nutty dark malt, fair body but slick. Despite the sweet hazelnut nose, taste is mostly roasty and hop-bitter - caramel, cream and coffee are moderate, chocolate taste is very light, and almost sugar-free. Good… Hoppiness is light grass in nose, strong lemon and grass in taste. Expressive and strong bitterness for an abrupt bitter and roasty finish; Fairly dry after taste. Bitter and very roasty to mouth.
Comments: This one has very creamy and sweet hazelnut chocolaty aroma, yet its taste is strong roast malt and bitter hops. Well-made, restrained and very English, it’s pretty enjoyable but I would like it better if tastes thicker, creamier with a little more sweetness. Drinkable.
