3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bomber from Liquor Plus Douglas) A robust porter, I find the alcohol a little too strong on this one. Tastes like it should be 8%, not 6. Apart from that though, very oily mouthfeel with a nutty finish, as a good porter should have IMHO.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with little head. Aromas of roasted malts, nuts, and instant coffee. Oily as stated, though still has lots of carbonation. Flavors of roasted malts and watery dark fruit. Itís light. OK itís a porter, but something is missing. Itís refreshing (odd comment for a porter) but not lasting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Darkest brown, just a hint of amber hue shines thru; frothy mocha head quickly fades. Rich sweet roasty malt aroma. Tastes of coffee, dark roasted malts, dried fruit. Surprsingly thin and watery. Low hopped, softly carbed, thin bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml bottle from liquor store in Nanaimo. Pours a murky brownish black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, weak dark fruit, light hops. Flavour was reasonably bitter and porter like but not nuanced and very watery in mouthfeel. Left the palate to quickly. Boring.
