3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle. Clear red / brown color. Not nearly as dark as American porters that I’m used to, but this is probably how they’re classically made. Thin bubbly off-white head, leaves nice bit of lace. Good toasty malts, little chocolate. Light earthy hop. Good bit of bitterness, rich but not too sweet.. Good, smooth texture, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Lightly toasty malt aftertaste, bit of cocoa. Better than expected. Went great with my smoked chick / bacon sandwich.

Not a bad beer. Easy drinker. Nothing terribly Christmas-y about it, but I didn’t really count off for that. I wouldn’t seek it out, but I wouldn’t refuse it if offered.

"there’s a very pleasant sweet sugar/lactose aroma and mouthfeel here, maybe a little caramel malt, but the body and flavor don’t have a lot else left to offer. quite boring and doesn’t taste like a porter. thin, almost non-existent head, thin body, no finish. an ok beer, but not a good porter. "

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a dark brown color close to black the further towards the center. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing slid into the beer.
The smell had some roasty coffee to chocolate qualities with a light cinnamon, nuts and caramel coming through.
The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and had them combined fairly well.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body with a slight sessionable aspect about it. Carbonation was pretty subdued and smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter to have again.

Mmmm, this is good. Oily slick in head. Chocolate. This doesn’t taste like Santa’s butt at all. Thanks Tony.
