COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
James Squire Porter is a beer of finesse. Its relationship to stout is evident in a rich, deep colour that is less opaque and unveils window panes of ruby mahogany.Unlike stout, it has more delicate complexity. Roasted barley andwheat, subtle hoppings and long maturation create hints of bitter malt chocolate and pillowy head.

Tap at the Crafty Squire, Russell St Melbourne. Poured a clear reddish brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, creamy toffee. The flavour is moderate sweet light liquorice bitter with a smooth light dry roasty malt dry ashtray palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Appearance: Black like Coke with a decent amount of head that fades a little to barely a thin ring. Pretty much like most porters. Smell: Strong brown sugar, almost burnt a little bit with some caramel. Quite delightful. Taste: At first, it tasted a little like weak coffee but as it warmed, it became a little more flavorful with some chocolate and roasted notes. Its still nothing complex but its still fairly good. Mouthfeel: Higher than expected carbonation with a smooth feel. Good enough body for the style.

345 ml bottle at the lobby bar in Ayres Rock (Desert Sails Hotel). Pours black with small tan head. Mild aroma of toasted malt. Overall flavour was toasted malt and chocolate. Ok, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Charming Squire, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small beige head. Aroma brings out soy sauce and light toasted malt. Flavour is similar, with dry toasted malt and light soy sauce notes. Boring but clean, despite the soy sauce.

On Tap at Charming Squire, Brisbane on 9th September 2015. Black with creamy off-white foam and partial lacing. Mildly roasty aroma. Citrus, roastiness and touches of smoke in-mouth. A short, roasty finish becoming fruity and slightly smoky. Zingy mouthfeel and medium body.

Out of a bottle in the outback. Good smokey malted flavor, but too carbonated for my palate.

On tap. Schooner glass. Probably served a tad too cold. Malty aroma, which matches the flavour. Very dark brown, fairly well carbonated and 1/2 finger stable head. Taste was mostly held back at the front of the mouth due to the carbonation, but ended on a nice malty mocha finish. I ordered a second because I did enjoy it quite a lot. Will be interesting to see if the bottle is as good.
