3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from World Market in Nashville, TN that my wife brought home as a surprise. Thanks! Pours a deep brown with a foamy tan head and good lacing. Aroma of wet grains and roast. Medium bodied approaching soft carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, caramel, and nutty grains. Finish is semi dry, bitter, with a touch of tobacco and tea, with some astringency. A decent example of a brown porter that has lots of British character. I would have preferred a little more sweetness and a tamer finish, but much better than I was expecting.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice dark color but the head is gone quickly. Aroma is dark malts and caramel, deep toffee, some maple syrup. Flavor: Starts as a sweet, rich, malty brew that quickly turns into a very complex and pleasant, mature and flowery beverage with an extremely balanced and tasty end. This is an excellent beer, from one of the best breweries in the world.

This beer had some nice porter qualities especial in the flavor but some of the accompanying flavors left me a bit underwhelmed overall. The body was watery in feel with a bit more carbonation than i like. Decent stuff but wouldnt grab this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark ruby, almost black color with practically no head. Smell is mostly roasted malts and coffee. A bit cake-like.
Medium body with regular carbonation and a bit watery texture. Taste is mostly bittersweet with bitternes coming mostly from alcohol, giving this beer a slightly boozy aftertaste. Aroma of dark fruits and berries, roasted malts, coffe beans, cake and alcohol. Slightly smoked. Finish is a bit dry with bitternes lingering on the tongue.
Overall, very nice.
