3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a finger and half of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and nuts.
A roasted malt flavor to start, mild bitter in the middle, a short finish though.
It has a fizzy texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
This beer looked great and smelled nice but the taste was pretty average. Easy to drink though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark mahogany with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost non-existent but it is a bit funky. Has an almost sour note to it. Taste is initially ok like a good porter, but has that same funky backend that turned me off. Hard to tell what that taste is...itís just not good. Once again, I get burned by a beer with a fish on the label.

Thin for a porter. Nice coffee overtones without the bitterness. Pretty decent beer.

Keg at the exmouth arms. Dark chestnut brown colouth with a thin cream head. Aroma is subdued choc , wood and twigs. Flavour is woody choc ans soft coffee in the finish. Very clean ferment. Chalky palate. Light body for a potter and high carbonation. Not much going on. Prefer some of the London porters this is too sterile.
