This porter poured a deep black colour with a creamy, tan coloured head. Nice lacing. Scents include plastic, malt, small amount of coffee and cocoa. First swig was nice and roasty with other flavours of coffee, light hops and very little cocoa. Finish is roasted as it gets...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep black color porter with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral coffee notes with some dry and lightly bitter roasted malt and some subtle dark chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by some floral coffee notes and some subtle black chocolate notes with some dry roasted malt notes also playing a major role. Light residual sugar can also be detected with no astringency and good balance overall. Body is average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid rendition of the style with good balance overall.

It pours deep dark brown almost opaque with ruby highlights; the head is beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: chocolate, toast, caramel, and roasted malts. The taste is light bitter; there are notes of: toast, coffee, and roasted malts. The palate is light bodied, watery, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, very weak flavour and body - far too watery.

750ml corked bottle pours reddish-black in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves only some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style, but a little thin in the body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Opaque deep brown liquid with medium light tan head. Aroma of licorice, dark fruit, British yeast esters, toffee, bread and light booze. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dark fruit, chocolate, biscuit and banana. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Balanced but a bit too estery for my liking.
