3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle- Pours a virtual black color with a foamy head that lasts and good lacing. Nice aroma of malt and dark fruits along with some chocolate and sweetness. Taste o malt and mild fruitiness. There is a nice bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth with a nice texture. Nice, but no real port character. Good change of pace, worth a try

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown, with a head that quickly settles into a thin film. But the smell is intriguing, with aromas of thick, sweet conchord jam and blackened malt. But the flavors donít really assert themselves in the taste; the port comes out mainly in the finish. Disappointing if you wanted a big, ruby taste to go with the name. Very dry for an English stout, the finish accentuates the beerís thin texture. Great idea, mediocre follow-through. (2/24/09)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours black with white foamy head. Dry bitter stout with a strong smokey, chalky burnt finish. Canít really get port notes, but this would definitely go well with hard cheeses. However, as a drinking ale, for me itís just too bitter and dry on the tongue. Donít like the residual flavour on the tongue. Chewy and lacking smoothness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Labeled as Ruby Stout, not Port Stout. Black. Small white head, almost tan. Lots of lacing.
Little roasty. Not much going on here. Little phenolic.
Bit bitter. Slightly sweet, but not overly so.
Thin, but velvety. A bit watered down.
Not bad. Would be a pretty good session beer.

Bottle. Aroma of roasted malt, wood and smoke. Dark redbrown colour with soft beige head. Smoked wood and bitter grapefruit in flavour, which leaves a dry, rubberlike aftertaste.
