Bottle. Pours a nice deep Black with a small 1 finger nail head.
Aroma. A sweet nutty espresso smell.
Taste. Strong Licorice up front, backed by some espresso and a general roastiness, with an annoying bitterness throughout.

330 ml bottle from Dan Murphy's in Brisbane. Drank at home. Pours black with light tan head. Medium to high fermentation for a porter. Good aroma of chocolate and maybe mild anise. Robust flavours of roasted malt, hops, and chocolate. Fairly complex beer. Very enjoyable!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark brown with a decent tan head and done lacing. A nice smooth aroma of dark - coffee, chocolate, fruits, nothing standing out, balanced and roasted feel. The taste follows, a little fudge caramel sweetness, bitter on the end, helped by the coffee flavour. Itís not too heavy, quite easy drinking and flavourful, quite lively carbonation which could do with settling. Overall a worthy English porter, and one of the better Aussie ones.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by bergstaden. A more or less black one, topped by a creamy, fingerthick dark beige head leaving lacings. Itís lightly funky and sourish on the nose with lots of dark chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts. Some notes of cooked vegetables. Itís full-bodied and rather effervescent, with lots of dark chocolate flavors. Coffee and roasted malts too. Lasting roasted malts finish. Too much carbonation going on, else itís a fine brew. 151010

bottle from warners at the bay. rich dark brown, loads of froth eager to escape the bottle; given a chance to settle and warm it reveals a smooth prune and molasses aroma; some cocoa bitterness, hints of brandy cream and red berry; pretty tasty
