3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with JJ. Heavy looking dark brown pour with a slow-to-form light brown head. This beer looks bigger and denser than I was expecting! Aroma is very nice, lots of chocolate, some coffee, some dark fruits (cherries?). Nicely flavoured malty palate with bitter chocolate, coffee, dark caramel, and dark fruit essence that contributes a slight acidity. Medium to full bodied, despite the lower ABV. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. A nice surprise!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler @ Chuck’s. Totally solid porter. All the right aromas that make me want to drag a pint out over a long night at the pub. One drawback was too much carbonation. The other was too little flavor. Washed out in the finish, but then sometimes I forget the difference between porters and stouts.

Black with mahogany edges, creamy brown head. Aroma of nut, chocolate, toffee, coffee, very rich and roasty. Taste is also very rich, lots of bitterness, some malty/coffee, some from hops it seems. Creamy texture, medium carbonation. Very nice and flavorful. And a great value at 3.59

22oz bomber purchased from Liquid Solutions
Appearance: murky brown with mocha head. Some retention and lacing.
Smell: quite nutty with some roastyness.
Taste: nujt up front, roasted malt in the middle, touch of sweetness in the finish.
Mouthfeel: A touch syrupy for my liking, but just a touch.
Drinkability: Would have scored higher if the mouthfeel was thinner.
Very nice porter indeed. Worth trying.
