2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Alehouse 24, Yamanto. Poured an opaque black with a brownish edge tint. Had a few light tan bubbles for a collar that laced poorly. Aroma of dark sweet chocolate, roasted grain and subtle vanilla. Taste sweet with roasted grain, subtle vanilla, sharp bitterness and a hint of burnt bitterness on the after-taste. Medium body. Semi-smooth (not creamy), dry and a long subtly burnt wood finish. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a reddish tinge. Brown head that holds. Medium bodied and well carbed. Aroma has the typical porter flavours of coffee, bitter cocoa and some roasty charred character. However there is a strong vanilla presence with a slight smokey finish that gives this beer an edge. Taste reflects the aroma, with the chocolate and nutty flavours a little more accentuated

Pours black with a large tan head.
Nose shows vanilla, soft roasted malt, oatmeal and light coffee. Very tempting.
Flavours include more dry soft roast with the vanilla leading to a balanced sweetness. Big chocolate notes. Moreish.
Nice moderate carbonation and body.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Very dark brown with excellent tan head. Little aroma, but pleasant - faintly porter. Medium body with velvety creamy carbonation. Taste is mainly a regular porter with interesting vanilla notes that appear in the mid palate and slowly tail off. There’s a good amount if bitterness in the finish. The start has some toffee sweetness. A nice beer.
