3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a semi-transparent brown with off-white lacing. Smells of dark malt. Tastes like it smells, only better, with some cocoa flavor too. Good on the palate with a smooth finish. Better than itís ratings suggest IMO (at least on draft).

500ml bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais. Very dark brown with very thin beige head. Its an ok beer, with some malt. Not very exciting. Some milk choc. Some malt. Thatís about it.

Bottle. Nice dark pour with a frothy head. Nice smooth full palate. Kind of some funkiness on the aroma and taste, but it isnít bad. A bit of cocoa here.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 donít think of this as a porter, itís pretty good. Pleasant roasted aroma. Sweet, toffee like, and some chocolate.
