4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£5.80):
Strong chocolate aroma with roasted malts and a sweet cocoa aroma. There is some vanilla and sweet malts along with some darker chocolate notes and touches of light coffee.
Opaque chocolate brown. Thumb sized, tan brown, foamy head that leaves some nice lacing.
Medium chocolate flavours to start with some mocha and a sweeter background taste from the sweet malts with hints of cocoa and vanilla. I could detect some coffee and a slightly smokey taste along with some roasted malts and a bittersweet finish.
Smooth with a medium body and good balance between flavours. There is a sweet base and the finish is a slightly bitter one with carbonation being mild to medium throughout.
Good porter taste with balance between the sweet notes and the roasted malt ones with more bitterness coming through towards the end. The taste seems to fade ever so slightly towards the end but not to a great extent and it is still an excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tastes like a nice beer when you consider depth and overall enjoyment, but I am not getting the mocha coffee flavour. Quite fizzy carbonation. Head stays a while but not too thick. Some flavour of chocolate way back.
