Bottle@nkbar. Black. Malty, slight stuffy roasty, dry nose. Med bodied, roasty bordering on ashy, malty, sort of plain, light leathery. Finishes on a bit coffeyish dry dark choco note. Ok porter. Clean, flavourful. Nothing amazing there though.

Pretty solid porter! Dark cola like pour w/ a tan head & messy lacing. The aroma has nice dark chocolate & roasted notes. The taste is on point w/ roasted chocolate standing out. It’s a tad thin but overall an enjoyable porter!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of nice roasted malts and dark chocolate with a hint of English yeast esters. Taste follows, add a bit of soy earthiness and a dry bitter finish, creamier mouth. Solid for the style, a nice porter.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Clear but very dark brown; thin but durable tan head coats the glass nicely with each tip.
Aroma: Plenty of dark roasted malt with hints of spicy hops, red wine, and dark fruit.
Taste: well-balanced flavor profile that turns slightly smokey at the finish. Neither bold nor challenging, this beer has a solid dark roasted base.
M: very good mix of smooth silky texture with a note of crispness, reflecting light but well-chosen carbonation. Medium body.
O: a well-crafted, mainstream porter. Good for sipping and quite sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice dark pour with a small frothy beige head. Aroma is roasted malt and a bit of cocoa. Medium palate, but the taste is a little odd - not bad, but it’s like the roast flavors are combatting a touch of metal and also a bit of watery blandness. Improving as it warms, though.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This English porter has a smooth, moderate mouthfeel and a balanced flavor. There’s some spicy hop character but it’s subdued. Roasted malt and chocolate flavors are also very even. A quality porter from a decidedly bold, experimental brewery.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a black color with a soapy white head. Aroma of dark fruit and roast with something else that is not blending well, perhaps chocolate, giving it a weird aroma. Taste is equally off. Dry and smoky with too much sweetness on the backend. Not good. Drain pour.
