Tap at Beergeek Bar. Strong rich full malty beer, very nicely balanced, very smooth, making love to my tongue. Cocoa, chocolate and roasted flavours. Oh yeah, very good.

Bottle from Brisbane Brewing 311015. Always able to find a bottle of something new that I haven’t had at Brisbane Brewing. Ordered this while waiting for my slider board to come out - glad I did. Squid ink black, fluffy foam cushion, burnt aromas that reminded me of the sticky bits left in the pan after cooking a roast. Thick and creamy in the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts and licorice. Dark brown with a red tint, tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall quite a nice porter, the carbonation level is a bit high for me, but still very enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pous a brownish to dark brown body with a nice tan head. Aroma is roasty with notes of smoke and tar. Hints of chocolate, malts and caramel. Lovely taste that’s somewhat sweet at first, then goes roasty with a moderate bitterness. Hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Velvety smooth on the palate and soft to avg carbonation. This was awesome!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is full on classic porter. Soft roasted malts with a little coffee and nuts. Taste is roasted coffee, a soft note of tar with some liquorice. A very light carbonation together with the very well balanced ingredients makes this a top notch porter, maybe even too good? It’s robust, and also a little bit anonymous.

Almost black with a thin tan head, some lacing. Smell is mostly chocolate. Taste is mostly espresso with a smoky finish. Balanced and smooth though a bit oily. An impressive Porter.
