Bottle as an Easter gift Dunbar Scotland 2009. This is a thin roasty porter that does not really push the envelope for the style. It is a solid representation though and has an awesome name

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black beer with a thin, off-white head. Aromas of faint smoke, and coffee. Tastes of smoky notes, watery/flat coffee, some coal, black licorice. Medium bodied, with an oily mouth feel. Bitter, chalky finish. Very dry brew, unoffensive in flavor, but not very memorable. Decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tomlinsonís, Inverness 091212
Dark brown, frothy tan head with reasonable lacing
Aroma - Soft roasted malts, touch of coffee grounds, little woody
Taste - Roasted malts, dark caramel toffee malts, some burnt crust, bit of charcoal, dab of bitter chocolate, some coffee grounds, touch of dark fruity malt in the background
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, fairly smooth texture. Finish fairly dry, burnt roast, woody, some lingering burnt roast and dark coffee grounds, tad rough
Overall - Finish is rather overburnt which spoils the main flavour . I do remember this being good on cask so this was a bit disappointing

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Nice creamy head, good retention. Nice and dark, great contrast to the tan head. Tasted roasty, chocolate notes with a bit of sour tang I couldnít nail down. A bit watery and think for such a dark porter, but finished smooth. I would try this again, as I tried this after an imperial stout which probably affected some of my perceptions.
