3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rather crisp for a porter, tastes like roasted cookies with blueberry and chocolate filling. Which means it’s rather pleasant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
5% ABV. Porter.
Nice thick light brown head, hangs around just long enough to whet the appetite.
Nose is so fragrant you can smell it across the table, full of malty umami promise. Sweet tang of alcohol.
Very complex first mouthful. Lightly carbonated, enough to be entertaining without being silly. There is a pleasant even-tempered and even good natured greeting featuring hints of charcoal, with some sweet flavor notes that are reminiscent of burnt ends. Well balanced malty body that is not sweet, not cloying, not sour...well-balanced. The palate finishes off with a hint of rice. Overall a very restrained effort producing a clean, amazingly interesting complex of flavors, palates and tongue textures.
Wasn’t going to ruin this wonderful ride by making a reference to Minoh Stout, but will have to because my unconscious palate keeps telling me to. SWB’s Teleporter stands on its own.
Going on my favorites list.

Draught @ Øllets Dag 2014, Kolding. Pours hazy dark coffee brown with small light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and caramel malt, with touches of yeast. Bitter, roasty flavour, with notes of liquorice. Lingering bitter finish. Okay.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask @ Drygate brewery glasgow
pours a black colour with a tight beige head
aroma is strong grain and black chocolate
taste is sweetish with coffee and chocolate with bitter tones and a long bitterish finish
more of a stout than a porter
highly recommended a very good beer

Near-black beer with a thin head. Light toasted malt aroma. Flavour follows suit with a light, fruity edge to it.
