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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with a 1 finger head and a little lace. Taste of coffee, light chocolate, roasted malt and caramel. It’s a very smooth porter and only 5%. Great for having a few.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with evolving pronounced head. Black, with a foamy head. Smell is of yeast and slightly hoppy. Taste is plumbs first, hops later. Aftertaste is slightly sour. A very well balanced beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a pint bottle into a tumbler on 03.01.14.
A: Opaque dark black. Tan head.
S: Caramel. Roasty too. It smells like a dessert.
T: Follows the nose but with milk chocolate too.
M: Creamy smooth.
O: This one is a touch less smooth than Samuel Smith’s excellent Oatmeal Stout. It’s still very smooth, though. It’s not overly roasty like some porters and stouts. The sweetness doesn’t get out of hand, either. This is an incredibly well balanced porter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Proper pint bottle poured into a proper pint glass. Forget the 500ml crowd, this is Yorkshire beer. Roasty, smotth, hoppy edge with slight lactic tang. Faint medicinal note (peaty?) with oakishness.Distinct porter ’crackle’. I’ve called it this because I don’t know what else to call it but usually defines porter-ness for me. So much better than Fuller’s London Porter. Veganist friendly too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A colablack beer with a medium and beige head. The nose is roasted, coffee, sourness of milk, quite strong sweetness of malts. Taste has sweet malts, nice roastiness, some coffee, the end is dryer with some dark chocolate. Medium+ bodied, smooth carbonation. Rich of malts, quite sweet porter, this is good beer with great balance.

Espuma oscura que no dura tanto como me gustaría. Cuerpo medio. Aroma maltoso, chocolate. En el sabor hay regaliz, chocolate y un poco de torrefacto. Al final, ligera acidez y amargor moderado. Muy rica.
