3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Dark black colour with a huge beige head, lots of initial carbonation. Roasty, currant and fruit cake, a fair alcoholic kick, some dark and dirty tar in the finish. Drinks very smoothly for all its full flavour. More of a stout than a porter, or maybe an imperial porter if such a thing exists, but either way high quality stuff.

Amazing porter. Well structured, with strong choccolate upfront in the nosing. It’s almost like someone is throwing dark choccolate powder at your nostrils. Cream, vanilla ice cream at first...salted liquirice in the backgroud. Extremely creamy and well structured, had a second bottle after the first one.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0.5l. Pours black with a very pleasant brownish head. I’m not getting much of an aroma, hints of chocolate, maybe the chili stout I hade before this ruined something in my nose. Taste is sweet with some bitterness, a little licorice and chocolate in there. Very pleasant mouthfeel, although a bit thin body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer pours a very dark brown with a huge, frothy light brown head that persists, and the aroma blends dark chocolate, lightly roasted coffee beans, raisins, plums, and toffee. The taste blends a mild sweetness, slight bitterness, and a slight umami with an aftertaste that has a definite fruity sweetness to it, much like chocolate covered raisins and raspberries. The palate has a lively carbonation (that is almost too much), medium body, and a slick texture.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500ml. Almost opaque brown with a frothy brown head. Sweet, spicy roasted aroma with hints of pepper, lactose, dried fruits, chocolate. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet and bitter. Tremendous dark malt and chocolate character. Well balanced and well brewed, with a great chocolate aftertaste. Rich, warming and complex. One of the better porters I’ve come across.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to my secret santa for this one. It’s dark, a little syrupy. A crisp and assertive aroma, coffee, whole wheat bread. Taste is terrific. This beer has the bold flavors and complexity you normally see in higher-abv stouts and porters. Great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours coffee brown with not too much head. Nose has red berries, burnt malt and chocolate. Coffee, chocolate and juice-like bitterness and sourness. Some notes of alcohol still remain, might be better a bit older. A nice and slightly different porter.
