This was my first Porter. Honestly, Torpedo Extra IPA was so good that I was hoping for a repeat with this Porter; however, it came up short. It was "ok" -- not as much body or flavor as I expected, especially in comparison to Founders Porter which was very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark brown colour, some floaties, low short lasting head. Aroma moderately hoppy, resiny and grassy. Also almost moderately malty with mostly coffeeish roast. Moderate fruity esters from the fermentation. Taste is well balanced. Moderate bitterness, mostly coming from hops. Roastiness kept below medium, but still noticeable. Moderate sweetness with notes of dried fruits, general yeasty fruitiness. Finish is balanced, moreish. Light to moderate hops flavour, resiny, grassy. Light heavy body, a very light alcoholic warmth - pleasant level. Overall very drinkable, yet intense and rich. Moderate carbonation. Excellent.
