22 oz bottle thanks to janka. I didn’t find much wrong with this porter. Lots of creamy tan head on this dark dark pour. Chocolate and coffee aromas. Flavors were similar with some burnt malt flavor and a decent hoppy finish. Very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black colored, medium sized beige head. Aroma has sweetness, plums, chocolate and some roastiness, mild alcohol also there. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is richer than aroma: chocolate dominates, roastiness, coffee, sweetness and medium alcohol. Aftertaste dries to have bitter and alcoholic touch, hops there with slight chocolate. Good flavored, slightly too thin aromated porter.

Bottle shared by sliffy at the PTFC. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of chovcolate, roasted malt and coffee. The flavor had some nice roastiness with both chocolate and coffe coming out. The body was smooth but a bit thin as well. Overall though it was a nice offering.

Bottle at RBESG 2006. Pretty solid, a little light, some orange in there I think. Let down by a crappy bitter finish.
