2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
It looked nice, but the taste was kind of boring. I have drank porters with much more full-bodied taste. However, the taste of coffee beans was there.
Not my cup of tea.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thick lasting, clingy lacy, beige frothy head. Smells of roasted malt, molasses, wood, coffee and some cherries. Medium oily body. Tastes of roasted and dark malt with molasses, coffee, liquorish with a lasting bitterness. Full malty flavour. Smells nicer than the taste. It falls a bit short.
