Pours deep amber-brown from 12 oz. Malty aroma, some caramel and plums. Toasty flavor, vinous, with bitter finish. Full bodied low carbonation. Good beer, a bit of mish mash with no defining characteristics, but overall drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy texture, a full-bodied, dark taste of malts, chocolate and coffee. A little bit roasted, very much enjoyed this one. Smooth to drink but not without some character to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark cola-colored beer with a thin fizzy eggshell head. Somewhat peculiar nose of toffee, raisins, and chocolate cake. Flavor is wonderfully malty with slightly toasted nuts, semi-sweet coffee, cocoa, licorice, and black strap molasses all coming through. A little wisp of bitterness finishes it. Despite all the nuances, it is still rather mild for a porter. A different and enjoyable porter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty good porter, but light than I was expecting. Has some roasted appeal, but the sweetness, some caramel and chocolate, dominates.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, bakers chocolate, some dark fruit character that has a slight tart note, thin compared to most porters, but the flavor is still there, this was one of the first English porters I had and not something I would revisit.
