4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into an almost black color, with a strong ring around the glass. Smellled of sweet and nutty caramel with chocolate mocha undertones, and another smell that I usually notice in scocth ales but I canít put my finger on it. The taste was big with a dry malty flavor being most pronounced mixed in with a slightly spicy or bitter hoppiness and a bit of smoke.

Pours black with thick tan head. Malty aroma with roasted coffee. Slightly bitter overall taste, not overpoweringly roasty. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled in 2000. Poured black with ruby highlights at the edges. Low in carbonation had to high pour to get a head. Aromas are fantastic, a deep rich coffee sweeteded with molasses, vanilla, and maple syrup. Some port character shine through with some fruit and winey notes. Flavor is enjoyable but disappointing after the aroma. A large amount of residual sweetness, though is somehow thin and slightly watery.

Color of this beer is deep black. Headís color is like creamy mocha and it is quite thin but lasting. Aromas are dark chokolate, roasted malts. Flavors are roughly roasted malts and rye bread, a little bit of metallic nuance. You can find a hint of chokolate from the flavor also. Nice bitterness in the aftertaste. Palate is quite smooth, slightly carbonated and gooey.

Nice dark colour with brown head. Soft and creamy taste with caramel and chocolate hints. Soft palate and easy to drink. I am not the biggest porter fan but this one is really good overall.

Pours a tar black with a brown firm head. Molasses and coffee in the aroma and powerful body with dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate.
A very nice stouty porter.
