4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled and on draft at Falling Rock. I like porters, but I usually don’t rave about porters. I love this beer, though. Great color, mouthfeel, aroma, and flavor. Probably what I would call too heavy to be true-to-style, but who cares? Chocolate. whole grain bread, a touch of sweetness, bitter like the carmelized juices on the outside of an herb-crusted rib roast. I only wish the brett-enhanced version would get here soon!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown, almost looks like a brown ale rather than a porter. Aroma of caramel and coffee, but rather faint. Taste is about the same, again faint. Palate is thin. I’d say they took a good porter and watered it down. The IPA was much better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Body is a foggy dark brown, no head, and looks like very little carbonation. The cork has no pop to it, just like the ipa. Aroma is a bit of caramel, light coffee, mollases. Taste is like a rocky road ice cream, along with a slight alcohol influence and almonds also. Very differant.

Black, beige lasting head. Very impressive appearanec the head is almost as dense ad whipped cream. Mild, friendly aroma with malty sweetness, roasted malts and licorice. Rich flavour with more malts. Roasted bread. Some licorice - and a touch of chocolate too?. Great london porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle.a very clean brown/red pour with thin tan head. hops, sugar, chocolate, roasted aroma. smoked taste becomes more present in the aftertaste. light body, caramel, sweet chocolate, a little coffee, earthy and slightly metallic. slightly bitter finish. could the commercial deScription be a little longer? I don’t think it got across saying absolutely nothing. This is a descent porter. I was expecting more though.
