look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Received as an extra in a trade probably 8 or so months ago that just kind of got lost in the fridge. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice dark dark brown nearly black hue with a one finger mocha head that faded quickly to leave a thin sudsy halo and light wisps. 3.75 (x .05 = .186)

S - Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, lightly sweet malts, darker chocolate, nice caramel, faint metallic twinge though. 3.75 (x .2 = .75)

T - Taste is similar to the noce with nice roast, a bit darker, good chocolate, the malts are sweet but not in the way. Darker chocolate comes out along with some nice caramel. The metallic twinge is gone...there is a creamy flavour here, more akin to oats. Quite pleasant. 4 (x .45 = 1.8)

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated almost overly so, creamy, alcohol hidden. That being said it does suffer from feeling a bit thin/watery. 3 (x .1 = .3)

O - Overall, fairly decent porter in a pinch. Nothing I would go back and revisit, but a solid enough offering from Green Man Brewery. Perhaps if fresher it would be closer to 4's. 3.75 (x .2 = .75)

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: dark, deep auburn highlights, a bit thin, not a big head or lace

Smell: honey! Sweet, a hint of spice. strong

Taste: subtly wondrous! A wave of flavor rolls over the tongue.

Mouthfeel: A tiny bit too much carbonation, goes down easily without a heavy sitting afterwards.

Overall: A solid satisfaction.

Blurb on bottle: Dark, full-bodied, and rich in flavor, Green Man Porter is wonderfully easy to drink. It offers a creamy, smooth mouthfeel and finishes with distinctive chocolate notes. This traditionally crafted, award-winning British-style Porter, like a true rock star, enjoys a legendary following.
