WheatKing's rating

3.1
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, - JUN 24, 2012
(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.

Dark pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is roasted males, coffee and a little earthy. Flavour is the same. Quite roasted and fuller bodied for a porter. Nice.

A 650 ml bomber from Legacy Liquor in Vancouver. Not much need be said about this one. A very average and enjoyable porter with coffee and chocolate overtones. Highly drinkable, but little complexity. A simple porter.

Gerbeer (1491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
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. It’s light. OK it’s a porter, but something is missing. It’s refreshing (odd comment for a porter) but not lasting.

Lagerboy (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
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)

manuchampions (1227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2011
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.
