3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Dark chocolate and roasted malt aromas, with a hint of yeast. The flavours are smooth and rich. Roasted malt dominate the mouthful, with bitter coffee flavours also strong. Dark chocolate and biscuit come through to sweeten each mouthful ever so slightly, but it is the bitter and burnt malt flavours which linger on the palate.

An unmemorable porter unfortunately. Nothing to right home about. Good head, and lacing. A bit grassy for a porter, and really thin. No rich or complex flavours as described on bottle. Rather bland and needs more

can. Black and poured with a big head that took some time to dissipate. Quite creamy with a medium body. Nothing exceptional but still a very easy to drink example of this style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coca-cola oscura. Muy abundante espuma, exagerada, desbordando el vaso si no tienes cuidado. Muy muy duradera. Aroma intenso, chocolate café, tabaco. En boca es predominantemente seca, con claro sabor ahumado de fondo a la vez que tiene ciertos tonos más dulces y frutales que se van hacia la nariz. Dejada en boca es licórica. Y en el final muy amarga. Ciertamente compleja e interesante.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Great Grog’s bottled beer festival. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet chocolate. There is not much taste, and some strange roasted and malty notes.

500ml bottle poured dark red brown with a delicious malty spicy aroma found the taste just as good chocolate malt & spicy with lingering hoppy red wine flavours lovely

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Can from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Not a bad English style porter with a nice roasted malts taste that went down pretty smoothly and was kept interesting by the addition of some good, earthy hops but on the downside the beer did seem a little light bodied in places. Overall this one was an enjoyable effort from Three Boys but in truth I’m not sure it’s one I’d be all that likely to pick up again soon.
