2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint on tap in an English pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a sparse head. Nose of roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate, however the flavour leaves a little to be desired. Doesn’t really carry over the coffee flavour; perhaps a bit of very bitter dark chocolate, but also a bit of unpleasant sour overtones. No body to speak of.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une mousse dense et durable garnit un liquide brun, tellement foncé qu’on pourrait dire qu’il est noir. Des arômes acidulés sont la première chose qu’on sent, ensuite ce sont des odeurs de dattes séchées, ou encore de figues séchées. Je perçois des senteurs qui s’apparentent au levain, ou encore à des levures sauvages. En bouche, on reste surpris par le côté sûret et la minceur du liquide. (389-061012)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Poured a very dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is dark chocolate and roasty malts. Taste is more dark chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee and nuttiness. Palate was reasonably dry, but a touch thinner than I’d prefer. Overall, a good regional porter.

Tan head, black colour with a fair amount of head. aromas of chocolate, toffee, and rich. More of the same on the palate with sweet chocolate and a more roasted coffee bean notes. pretty local brew!

Bottle, shared with Robbie. Dark brown pour, nearly opaque, with a dense compact beige head. Aroma is sweet fudge and coffee. Flavour profile is sweeter than average, with caramel and chocolate forming the backbone. Coffee and roast round things out, and the finish is nicely hopped and bitter, helping to balance out the sweetness. Medium bodied. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle into a tulip. Pours dark brown with a tan, frothy head. I swear the first whiff was full on hops, but after that it’s got a deep milk chocolate nose with some nutty character and that initial hop impression lingers in mix. This bottle has been sitting around too long and it’s sour in the mouth, very sour. Pity. There’s still some good chocolate and coffee character underneath but this bottle gets to go down the drain. *tear*

A deep dark porter with a thin creamy lacing moka head. In aroma, again, the pleasant butterscotch, with roasted malt, a bit peaty and oily. In mouth, a nice and light porter with sweet chocolate, coffee, butterscotch and wood. Nice and light. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 10 2009.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown-black pour. The nose is quite chocolatey with a nice backdrop of cocoa and coffee. Rich sweetness with a soft but insistent roastiness. Assertively bitter on the back with contributions from both the roast and the hops. Lingering roast. Quite lovely.
