3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not near as good as the Oatmeal Stout, this beer screams soy sauce at me. This would definitely compliment sushi or other Japanese foods, however, as my after-dinner drink, this one is somewhat lacking. Not much of a head and an extremely dark appearance, this beer does not follow through with a beerish taste, rather, it's just soy sauce all the way through. I'm surprised this one wasn't brewed by Kikkoman.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Dark black body with a large creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Light roasted coffee aroma and a bit of caramel scent. It’s pleasant.
Taste: It has a good mouth full of flavor. There is a rich roasted flavor but not too bitter, some molasses flavor, and a bit of burnt caramel at the end.
Palate: The body is full and thick but not exceedingly heavy or syrupy. It coats the mouth very well and is very easy to drink.
Overall: I really like this beer. It is a great porter that has just an edge of caramel sweetness to give it that characteristic English flavor. It is very easy to just sit down, pop this open, and enjoy it to the end. It would go well with a turkey sandwich and seasoned fries or a snack like soft pretzels and dip. It has a nice "pub ale" feel to the beer with a low ABV that makes it drinkable and not overpowering in flavors. I recommend trying it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
550 ml bottle from the Bishop’s Cellar. Pours a dark brown with rubyish edges and a moderate-sized, lasting light tan head. Aroma is dark and roasty with coffee and cocoa in equal parts, sweet caramel and some fruity notes. Flavour is both roasty and rather sweet with cocoa, some coffee, candy sugar and some really nice plum and other dark fruits towards the end. Average body. Quite nice.

Nie czuć karmelowości, bardziej nuty czekoladowe i palone. Oczywiście wodniste i nudne piwo.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep ruby brown with a short-lived tan head diminishing to a thin skim and no lacing. Nose is dark roasted (almost smoky) malt, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. Taste follows suit completely. Medium body, soft carbonation, and a pleasant short bitter finish.
Decent, well-behaved porter. Malty without being too sweet, dark without being too bitter, and a light body - all in all, very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
550 ml, flaske, 5,0 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Domus Vista på Frederiksberg, 30. august 2014.
Flot brun/sort engelsk ufiltreret Porter med pæn 5-6 cm tyk moccafarvet skumtop.
Aroma af træ, læder, ristet malt, lakrids, salt, alkohol/vodka.
Godt sur og bitter smag af ristet malt og humle. Det bitre er dog klart tydeligst. Svag sødme som anonym følgesvend. Surheden er første akt, hvorefter bitterheden overtager scenen.
Et niveau mellem lavt til medium kuldioxid indhold gør Taddy Porteren let cremet og blød i munden.
Ganske vellykket Porter med en fuldendt og helstøbt balance. Og meget smag er der hivet ud af de 5,0 ABV.
