2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by KnutAlbert. A brief, creamy latte head, resting on a ruby shaded, dark brown colored body. Aroma is mild, toasted malty with coffee and chocolate notes. A scent of stale, cheesy hops and acidulous fruits. Taste has a medium strong malt body, slightly roasted, offset by a certain acidic fruitiness. Mildly hopped, some grass and metal. Light-bodied with a light astringent mouthfeel. Quite an unusual one, maybe not in its best shape.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by knutalbert. Cheers! Looks like coke with a creamy beige head with soapy bubbles. Aroma is of liqourice, coffee, light funky notes. Roasted notes and coffee dominate the flavour profile, with a big sour and dry burnt metallic finish. Thin bodied, mellow carb. It’s a bit wierd what with the funk and sourness. Not bad though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Porterhouse, London
Picturesque ruby-highlighted deep brown body with thick creamy nitro head.
Somewhat muted nose; roasted malts prominant, dark chocolate and mocha, some subtle hop character detectable.
Slightly creamy texture, low to medium carbonation, dry roasted texture with quite lean weight.
Nice roasted malt body, plenty of milk chocolate and latte flavours. Hops come through on the finish, earthy spice, lending quite a solid bitterness.
A good dry porter for sure.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro at the brewpub. One of the big nitro head pours, beige over cloudy dark brown. Dry ashy aroma with tobacco, roast, some smoke and some frutiness. Flavor is dark fruit, sweet plum, tobacco, nice. Medium to light, well carbonated body. Not bad. 7 3 6 3 13 = 3.2
-------- cask at the brewpub. clear brown with Clear brown with no head. A little bit more like mollasses, syrup, a little roast, nice. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a more sweeter red/purple fruit, nice. Light and watery with no carbonation, basically cask like. I prefer this one more than the original. 3 8 7 3 15 = 3.6

Draft 1/2 pint at the brewpub in Dublin. Nice black appeal with a solid tan top. Fun chocolatey aroma, but this drinks with a bit of ashimess more than any sweets. Quite lovely. (#3672, 9/15/2009)
