3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pitch black, with a large, frothy, tan head that refuses to fully dissipate. The nose is bittersweet chocolate, light coffee, toasted oak, with some caramel and anise. Nice, sweet and roasty flavor, with a nice touch of bitterness in the finish that keeps it from being cloying. Medium body, creamy, a little thin, and lightly acidic. This is a well balanced, flavorful and easy porter. Not overly complex, thick, or aggressive, but quietly tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Large light brown foam which holds very long. Lovely aroma of roasted malt and English licorice. Tasting notes is English licorice, roasted malt and only a discreet hop aftertaste reflects quite how I think a porter should have tasted in London at the time. I think it is an experience that everyone should try.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, soy sauce, something tinny and smoky things. Taste is similar but thins out a bit too much. Like others have mentioned, this is lacking depth.

The Cannery Row Beer Club enjoyed this. We enjoyed this although thought there could be a little fuller in taste. Cheers.

Bottle from Edinburgh offy. Ok, and slightly better than their Chocolate Stout. Some depth at first, but gets thinner as you go on.
