Very dark with deep tan head. Nice, well-balanced porter. Hop rate is fairly low and hence quite a gentle malty beer without much in the way of roast flavours. A subtle and carefully thought-out porter. Liked it.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber- brown, nice appetizing colour. Aroma starts coffeeish, picks up some sugars and diacetyl. The palate has more diacetyl, slight toast, then it finishes tart, falling apart a bit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Noble Pig, pours black with an amber tinge and a small tan head. Nose is kind of chalky, with notes of charcoal, light coffee grounds and cocoa powder. Flavour brings out a mix of cocoa powder, stale coffee grounds, and charcoal. Chalky mouthfeel, leaving something to be desired on the palate, but the flavours are nice enough. Decent porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Semi dark chocolate and roasted malts. Opaque black with a long lasting small brown head. Chocolate dominates, but with without the bitterness that can sometimes follow. There is a odd taste of sweetness in the finish, that isn’t bad but sticks out. Decent.

Tap@Noble Pig brewhouse, Kamloops, Canada. Blackish brownish beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour had a reasonable degree of expresso coffee bitterness. Overall a nice well flavoured roasted porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at the brewhouse pours a dark brown color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate with some roasted grains and hints of coffee and floral notes. Taste is chocolate malt sweetness with hints of coffee and roasted barley bitterness. Medium bodied with modest carbonation leaving a decent sensation on the palate. An easy drinking porter style ale which is recommended.
