A full-bodied English-style Porter, this brew has a substantial roasted malt character. Brewed with traditional English Ale hops and sweetened with Scottish heather honey

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very black with a small head. Malty aroma with some cent of honey/tofee. Taste is rather sweet with some noticable roasty bitterness with a finish that doesnt pick up until after a few tastes. Medium bodied beer but light palate, runs down easily. overall a fine porter.

Bottle, pours dark reddish with medium tan head. Aroma is honey and some roasted malts. Taste is honey, some hops, roasted malts. Light mouthfeel for being a porter. Too much honey and some weird flavor I cant put a name on. Just became worse the more i drank it. Fy fan

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted bottle from Brewmaster’s Collection mix-pack into nucleated pint glass. Poured a clear dark brown with firm beige head which quickly dissipated, little lace. Fairly mediocre porter aromas and flavor. Some honey in the nose, very little honey taste, but I’d prefer this to overdoing it with cloying sweetness. Pretty tasty, I’m glad I tried it, but I doubt I will purchase it separately.

Pours a dark red brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and some mild honey. Medium bodied with roasted malts, chocolate, honey and some dark fruits. Finishes a little bitter. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma and taste are roast malt, chocolate, honey and caramel. Not too much honey (good), but a bit boring overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ The Flying Scotsman on September 19. Pours dark chestnut brown with almost no head. Smell is sweet and includes molasses, raisins and lightly roasted malts. Taste is dominated by honey, malt and some burnt sugar. It all ends up in a slightly acidic aftertaste. Quite nice but a bit too sweet and not very complex.
