3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Kolding Bryglaug Americans tasting.
Bought @ Det Lille Ølhus, Ribe.
Pours deep mahogany, nearing opaque black. A great, creamy, beige head with fine lacing. Aroma is soft coffee and a touch of chocolate. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour is light coffee-based at first, then dries out considerably adding lots of dry mocha coffee notes and light hops. Sadly a bit too thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 650ml, pasteurised. Black with ruby hue, brown tan head. Thick and dry porter with a heavy, tarry nose and a heavily roasted malt body. Plenty of chaffy notes with a coffee husk background and a touch of treacle. Bitter on the finish, its fine but not refreshing.

Deep dark brown color, opague. Brown frothy head. Mocha coffee aroma with a hint of chocolate. Rather thin, but with loads of flavor. Blackcurrant, roasted malt, espresso coffee and chocolate. Long toasty bitter and chocolate finish. Lovely beer that needs more body to be really first class.

Bottle on the train from Hereford to Inverness, cheers to DW, 18/10/13.
Mid black with a big old light tan head that retains well - this porter is pleasing on the eye.
Nose is light roast, brown sugars, cocoa, not getting much coffee from it though.
Taste comprises light roast, cocoa, faint coffee strains, molasses, brown sugars, leather.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate.
An ok drinkable porter, not too much depth though.
