COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made in traditional Brown Porter style from selected roasted malts dark ale is full bodied, rich and complex. Pouring with a deep ruby colour and creamy off-white coloured head, an aroma of caramel and bittersweet chocolate, which follows through in the flavour with a balanced bitterness.

Pours a muddy dark brown with nearly no head. Nice roast malt aroma with chocolate, and a bit of caramel. Thin, harshly bitter body. Flavor is cocoa, medium caramel malt, a bit of roasted malt, the faintest amount of coffee. This one was disappointing. Has a pretty decent aroma but the flavor does’t match up. It’s a fairly ugly looking beer and the body does not help the brew. It isn’t bad but it’s not something I would get again.

I’m surprised at the reviews, I don’t get much from this beer. It’s described as ’full bodied’ and ’rich’, it’s quite watery. They say ’deep ruby colour’, I see no ruby, it’s Coke in colour, and a ’creamy’ head, no it was thin, fizzy and gone quickly. I don’t get much from the aroma at all, mild caramel, the taste is also weak but definitely not unpleasant, short finish and not very bitter.

on tap at the brewery in bob’s farm. dark brown with a thin head; quite a sweet, nutty aroma; simple and steady porter with notes of cocoa powder, vanilla and a modestly bitter finish. just lacking a bit of spark

marom92 (47) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
On tap. Deep, dark brown, almost black with a small tan head. Strong coffee and dark chocolate aroma with notes of raisins and burnt toffee. Bitter coffee flavour with slightly bitter smokey notes. Body is light, too thin for a porter in my opinion. Good bitter dry flavours though

Una porter un po’ nella media, ma comunque gustosa, con note di cioccolato e tostate ben equilibrate con una sfumatura leggermente amara.

Sorry, in Finnish this time: Miltei musta, todella runsaasti vaahtoava olut. Vaahtoa jää reiluhko kerros pitkäksi aikaa oluen pinnalle ja myös pitsiä jää runsaasti. Tuoksu tumman maltainen, suklainen ja hieman ruisleipäinen. Maku makean maltainen, suklainen, lakritsainen, aavistuksen kahvinen ja melko pitkä tumman vivahteikas jälkimaku on toimiva. Todella onnistunut kokonaisuus näillä prosenteilla.

KeefOz (881) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2013
BB 28/June/2014. Poured an opaque black with a dark cherry red tint on the edges and a three-finger light tan foamy head that retained well and diminished slowly. Laced OK. Aroma subtly of sweet caramelised malt. Taste of roasted grain and quite sweet malts with no real bitterness and quite balanced with no one flavour dominating. Light to medium body. Palate smooth with roasted malts coming through plus sweetness and also an unusual tangy bitterness to the finish.
