3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the parents, sourced from Tesco by the Old Man - cheers, 26/01/13.
Pours a ruby red copper colour with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and leaves a swirl of film. Not exactly Porter-esque in appearance!
Nose is light roast malt, dark fruits, plums, dates, hint of spice, light chocolate.
Taste follows nose, roast malt, some milky chocolate, Oreo biscuits, tangy dark fruits in the background, molasses, tobacco.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, fairly smooth on the palate, dry finish.

BOTTLE FROM ASDA. Roasty and chocolatey obvious real chocolate used and maybe candy sugar, have saved the yeast for later. overall a litttle heavy and not session able like most say. but different with spices and adjuncts the whitewater brewery is and has a made a name for itself because of it.

Porter with character of a spirit, it certainly has a nose that would rival a drink with a strong alcohol content, close to that of whiskey in aroma.. It doesn’t have an appealing character, but definitely an interesting one as this style is rare. Ruby colour but flat looking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malts and caramel along with some medium strength bitterness and a light fruit aroma in the background. The beer is quite earthy with a nutty smell but overall it was nice, if a little weak.
Chestnut brown in appearance with a thumb sized, foamy head that is off-white coloured and stays well.
Rich bitter malts and a hint of caramel along with some fruits and earthy malts along with a good nutty base. There was hints of grapefruit and citrus in there as well.
Smooth and with mild carbonation along with a light bitter and earthy feel to it. Quite subdued overall but it does have a nice mouthfeel.
A basic red ale though, and although one I would drink again it’s not likely to be one of my regular beer and is by no means a classic.

Brown pour with a frothy beige head and lace. Malt, hops, chocolate, raisin.
Meaty and slightly bitter with modest carbonation. Sweet from the chocolate and raisin with prominent malt characters. Good beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 0.5l. Clear amber color with small creamy brownish head and average visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, spicy hops and some fruitiness, too. Taste starts with light caramel sweetness, beer is pretty well balanced, while aftertaste is long and hoppy. Full body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate.

550cl ath The Garrick Bar in Belfast. Pours deep copper with a light brown head. Aroma of dark dried fruits and some roasted malt. Sweet and lightly fruity with a metallic taste and some hoppy bitterness. Medium carbonation and quite light body. A bit strange, but drinkable. Not a beer I need to try again. (2011-06-10)
