A Mes rate. Bottle at Duff’s.
Clean dark brown with a thin off white head. Decent toasty bready malt nose with a slight ashy hint. Similar flavour with plenty extra sweetness. Nice bitter chocolate finish. Straight forward but decent.

Maybe I had this sitting too long. A couple of months. Pours slick black with a velvet beige head. Aroma is cold cuts and smoked malts. Taste is again slight smoked meats and malts with coffee mixed in. Not terribly pleasant.

a dark beer with huge brownish head good lacing, nose is fantastic on toasted malt and chocolate. Aroma is creamy on caramel malt, toasted and roasted malt, even smoked notes, nice bitter chocolate notes. Great malty body, relatively dry may be some sour hints.

Purchased at Tesco store in London, UK. Also tasted at the Meantime brewery pub, as well as buying a bottle from LCBO ( I think it was just a seasonal special ) in Canada. Good porter, bit pricey at the brewery but nice part of town to visit.

11.2 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, caramel, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, and a bit of vanilla. Very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Pours a dark, dark chestnut brown with a beige coloured head. Aroma is big on both cocoa, and biscuity cereal notes with coffee grounds, faint straw, and mild vanilla. The taste is mostly coffee, light molasses, dark malt notes, and lots of coffee notes with some bitterness in the finish. Solid.

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...
