3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour with moderate light tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet caramel and toffee with some roasted malt notes. Taste is definitely on the sweet side, very little of the roasted malt flavors come through. Seems a bit "thin" overall. Reminds me more of a minimally hopped amber or brown ale than a porter. Nothing offensive about this brew, just not a great representation of the style.

Good Porter. The taste and the smell is pretty strong but good. The aftertaste is also good but are maybe not for too long.

Bottle. Appearance: pitch black, cola like, tiny dirty white head. Aroma: Caramel, sweet, a little coffee, pepper, smells muddled. Flavour: sweet, very malty, blackcurrant, figs, hints of coffee, burnt paper, slick mouthfeel, cloying sweetness. Weird.

Dark brown pour. Creamy medium head. Malty aroma. Mild roastiness. Light mouthfeel for a porter. Caramel and toffee flavors come through more than the roast. Sweet finish.

Poured black with almost no head. Aroma is very dry with roasted malts and some nuts. Taste is also dry with more roasted flavors and some slight yeast flavors. Not terribly complex, and a little too dry. Finish has some slightly fruity notes with caramel.

If you don’t think of this as a porter, it’s pretty good. Pleasant roasted aroma. Sweet, toffee like, and some chocolate.

500ml Bottle. The pour was a clear medium to dark brown with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that reduced down to a small cap and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a roasted dark malt and a leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of molasses.
The taste was lightly sweet with a roasty malt feel, a note of chocolate and a touch of molasses from the start, progressing slightly into a mildly bitter taste with a nice roasted coffee finish. The flavor lasted a decently long time after the swallow, with a roasted coffee taste left lying on the taste buds for a short while longer.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a brew that possessed a nice bitter sweet roasty flavor, a smooth and easy drinkability and only a moderate ABV. Although it is nothing over the top, it is still quite good and I could see my self having a few of these...

Poured a dark brown, almost black color from the bottle, aromas of roast, light coffee, and some toffee. Flavors follow suit, light on the palate for a porter, ok overall.
