3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beer which is all about the after taste, chocolate and coffee ever lasting aromas after every sip, a beautiful dark color, amazing head, sourness that compliments and confirms the coffee aromas, texture is perfect to represent a porter and sets it aside from Stouts, small bubble carbonation that collapses in the palate to create a creamy mouth feel, this is a PORTER !
It should not be compared or mistaken for a dark ale, or a stout !!

Medium brown, has a chocolatey nose that’s a bit one-dimensional. Goes through a sweeter chocolatey taste. Has light toffee..in the dark mild style but way bigger.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a solid dark brown/black with a sudsy tan head that subsides to a cap. Aromas of milk chocolate, raisins, prunes and coffee. Taste shows dark fruit at the front before a coffee bean and dark chocolate bitterness leading into a smoky note at the end. Smooth finish with a chocolatey aftertaste. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 17/7/2015. Pours not far off black with a small to medium tan head. Has quite a strong chocolate aroma. Sweet chocolate dominates the flavour too, but there’s also a good dash of coffee, and some vanilla, against a light roasty background. It displays a decent bitter kick, which sets off the sweetness nicely. Medium to full body with average carbonation. This is a very tasty, well made porter. Tried two from this brewer so far and they’re both winners.

On tap at The Archive. Pours thick and dark with a tightly bubbled tan head, laces well, smooth with strong chocolate running through the roasted flavours. Mild coffee on the aftertaste, I liked it a lot.

An excellent example of porter with malt and hops complimenting each other. Tastes of caramel, chocolate and coffee.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Archive Beer Boutique, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black with a wide mahogany edge tint. Light tan bubbles as a collar that laced poorly as film on the glass. Aroma of sweet coffee, condensed milk, and with a hint of roasted malts. Taste roasted up front with milk chocolate and a somewhat tangy/spicy hops bitterness. Light to medium body, light for a porter and lighter than I was expecting. Smooth, creamy with a very slight tangy bitterness on the finish. OK.
