"there’s a very pleasant sweet sugar/lactose aroma and mouthfeel here, maybe a little caramel malt, but the body and flavor don’t have a lot else left to offer. quite boring and doesn’t taste like a porter. thin, almost non-existent head, thin body, no finish. an ok beer, but not a good porter.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a dark brown color close to black the further towards the center. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing slid into the beer.
The smell had some roasty coffee to chocolate qualities with a light cinnamon, nuts and caramel coming through.
The taste took those previously mentioned flavors and had them combined fairly well.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium in body with a slight sessionable aspect about it. Carbonation was pretty subdued and smooth.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good porter to have again. SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014

Mmmm, this is good. Oily slick in head. Chocolate. This doesn’t taste like Santa’s butt at all. Thanks Tony. Theydon_Bois (19537) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle at home, thanks to my inlaws for another new Xmas gift rate, 01/01/14.
Pours an extremely dark shade of mahogony brown with a moderate light beige covering.
Nose is cardboard, light cocoa, earthy, touch of spice, dark fruit tang.
Taste comprises toffee, nutty notes, earthy cocoa, brown sugars, faint roast.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish.
Very mediocre porter, lacks any great depth and a little overly sweet.
