2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught, at the Head of Steam, Euston, London.
Black with a creamy bone head. Sweet metallic araoma. Metallic slightly out of conditioned flavour. I've not seen a lot of this being drunk whilst I was here. Definitely try another one of these to double check the condition.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at The Porterhouse, London.
Tall and solid head on a dark brown/black body. Not much aroma, I only sense a little malt. Dry in the flavor with roasted malt, hops and some nuts. Quite ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep black with nice tan head and good lace. This would be called a stout anywhere else. Smoother and less bitter than the XXXX stout from Porterhouse. Nice black chocolate flavors with hints of roast coffee.

Chocolatey, a very thick consistancy for a porter, almost a stout. A decent flavorful brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2011 Very dark brown; light toast, roast chocolate aroma. Fresh, almost tobaccoey character. Light toast. A fun porter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was excellent--easily the best beer they brew. Extremely soft texture, foamy. Coffee and coffee ice cream flavors, as well as hints of chocolate/raspberry later on. Rather complex (better the Guinness). Trying to place the flavor, at one point I couldn’t get ’celery seed’ off my mind. A refreshing beer and evidence that the awards given out to beers are not wholly off-the-mark. (The brewery claims to have received an international-level award for this one).

Tasted in Dublin, june 2001. Coffee, roasted malt and liqorice in the fine taste of this thinnish beer. For a porter very easy to drink.

You gotta love a place where the bartender gets insulted when a patron orders a Guinness. This is what they serve up instead and it is far superior.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Tap@The Porterhouse, Barnes. Not much flavour- absolutely no aroma, really surprising as i used to like this. Vague roasted malt, some sourish lightly chalky flavour. This tastes almost exactly like Guinness, but with more caramelly flavours coming through. NOt very interesting.
