3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.3%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour. Seems hazy. Small light brown head. The flavour is bready, has a mild coffee note. Low bitterness, it seems, but actually a little unpleasant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown in color with a khaki head. Stale coffee, harsh roastiness, bitter dark chocolate, and coffee grounds. Not a fan of the aroma. The flavor is really no better. Quite bitter with tons of roasted malt and coffee ground flavors. Some bitter dark chocolate, a bit of earthiness, maybe some slight malty sweetness. Meh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown colour. Full rich character is chocolatey, a bit nutty. Hop bitterness is moderate, which I find appetizing in a porter. Very full, smooth body. Goes down reaaaaallly easy. Great stuff, an old favourite.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, and perhaps coffee. Opaque brown/black color with ruby hilites on the edges. A beige head stays. A bit thin in body; moderate, almost creamy carbonation. The flavor starts with roasted malt, accompanied by significant bitter. There are notes of chocolate and coffee. The finish is very dry, bitter, and has remnants of burnt toast and baking chocolate. A very subtle sour touch comes and goes.
