Black pour with an over-carbonated, rocky light tan head. Thick lacing. the aroma is very porter-like. Mostly roasted malt, with some crystal in there as well. Unnoticeable yeast, and might have a touch of earthy hops. I assume this has been sitting for a while. Flavor is similar, and well balanced. Nice palate, too. Will try to re-rate a fresher one.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Porter uit Nieuw Zeeland. Vrij droog en bitter en weinig zoet. Beetje flauw qua smaak, zelfs beetje waterig. Niet bepaald mijn ding.

33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A glossy black pour with a thin beige head; fruity aroma with some licorice; tropical fruit taste with a smooth grainy body; giving a peaty licorice taste; and an interesting combination of mango and licorice to finish. An interesting blend of styles.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown beer, off white foam. Quite a nice hoppy dark beer, some roasty malt and a herbal hop finish.

Pours dark brown/black with a thin brown head. Smells of lightly roasted malts, chocolate, earthy. Tastes of dried fruit, mild roasted malt flavours. Not to sweet. nicely balanced between sweet and dry. It’s a decent enough beer, but not something I would personally strive to try again.

Bottle. Like the name. Earthy smell. It's an inoffensive porter, with some body and a very long, very dry finish. Ok, but not special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
