Bottle, shared with Ian. Very dark brown with a tan head that shows good retention. A roast-rich porter, very roasty, with undertones of dark fruits, finishing with an fruity acidity and burnt bitterness. Very nice, classic porter. More UK than US in style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger head that settles slowly and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains with dark chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with carbonation typical for the style. A well done porter that I recommend for others to sample.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A boring porter. Pours a beautiful black red with a white head. Smells very nutty. Taste is milky, but also weirdly watery. Had on tap at the brewery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 22oz. A dark brown beer with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma has coffee, chocolate and some bonfire, all weak. Soft on the palate, quite dry, with a nice carbonation level. The flavor too is weak, with roasted malts, some coffee and chocolate, and a faint meaty touch. Long, roasted and chocolatey finish with a little hint of meatyness. Not impressive this one, but quite drinkable. 130809
