2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Draft (Porterhouse, Dublin)
Deep copper colour, thin tight head. Slightly sickly sour strong fruity/malty aroma. Slightly unsophisticated alcoholic taste.
Previously had far worse examples, only rating the best one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Soft amber colour, thin white head. Really fruity, cherry and blackberry with some caramel and toffeeish malt. Flavour is like a wee heavy, caramel malt, spicy, and hint of honey/molasses. Sweetness is well balanced however by some definite hop bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle thanks to Ingo! Sampled on December 22, 2012. BB 30 12 10.
Hazy copper color, tan head. Sweet, malty, citrus scent, also grainy and some sirup. Malty, dry, grainy, bitter, citrus peel taste. Dry bitter aftertaste, also some hints of chocolate. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium high to high dry bitterness.
Would like it better less bitter and with more residual sugar/sweentess.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2009-05-15. Red-brown body with a small creamy beige head and lace. First sip is pleasantly hoppy, quickly followed by some brash alcohol with sweet malt in tow. Pleasant malt core is sweet but hop bitterness and lightly warming alcohol overtones end up being the focus of your attention. (7+) Aroma is mild, and not helped by the shape of the sample glass unfortunately. Mild hops and malt managed to make a bit of an impression. (6+) Average plus palate. Pretty decent. On tap at the brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught strong ale served at a perfect drinking temperature at Porterhouse, London. An off-white foamy head over a shining mahogany body. Malty to the nose. Solid taste of dark and dried fruits on a malty backbone. Bitter endnotes. Almost full bodied (full pint shared with Geir, 05.08.2008).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Mes rate: tap at the Porterhouse. Clean, bright amber with a slim off white head. Bland fruity aroma with some fairly clear alcohol. Rather harsh and unrestrained in the mouth. Strong notes of straw and hay with a big hit of cheese and alcohol in the finish. Out of balance and a bit cheap all round. Something to get folks drunk who don’t really care what they throw down their neck, so long as it does the trick...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Porterhouse Central. This brew pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and a some hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a pale malt aftertaste. Decent all around.
