3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle picked up locally. Strange that I haven’t rated this yet (well, not really, just got caught in the backlog). Pours a dark brown color with a large frothy khaki head that diminishes into a thin layer with sporadic lacing. The aroma has roasted malts, some coffee, nice dark chocolate, and earth. The flavor is much of the same; roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, earth, and a subtle nutty character. Pretty much your basic robust porter, but well done, light medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nearly black with a frothy tan head. Nice milk chocolate plate in the aroma, with a bit of smokiness and honey-tinged graham crackers. A little toasted marshmallow as well, plus a little prune. Flavor kicks off with dark fruits and bitterness, while dry burnt malt makes up the finish. A little bitter dark chocolate and smoke as well. Lingering roast. Smooth medium-light body; moderate prickly bitterness. Outstanding flavor and balance. Great example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle at a BYOB, no date or ABV details. Black, small brown head endures. Aroma is treacle, ash, a little raspberry and some bbq sauce. Also a little metallic. Body is medium, light carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is twiggy, roast malts, very astringent and ashy, burnt wood, metallic, soft sweetness. Pretty nice stuff.

Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, roast, chocolate, cream, coffee, a hint of smoke, hoppy notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate to medium roasty and hoppy bitter finish. Body is medium to heavy. Wow, this is great Porter, there’s a lot going on. Good balance between roast and hops.

I might have drank too many porters lately - this one kinda misses the mark. Decent coffee flavor, but has a nasty sour aftertaste. I will have to try this again sometime.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice hoppy porter with chocolate and coffee notes.
