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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the can. Paired with lamb steak with fig sauce. Aroma of coffee or chocolate... let’s say roast and cherries. Flavor is similar with an added smokiness (pairs well with the grilled meat). A slight vegetal flavor pops in occasionally, which is a bit distracting. Pours a nearly black reddish brown with a soft, off white head.
