Australia

3.94/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: a stumpy 355mL brown bottle with a semi-stylish old-school label.

Appearance: pours an intense dark brown tending towards oily black, with a small amount of sediment evident on the final pour. An impressive tan head settles to a solid half-finger Minimal lacing.

Aroma: considering the reviews I have seen on this beer, I assume this has suffered a bit on the way to Australia. Smells only of light molasses and an unfortunate off malt. Not sure about that.

Taste: really picks up on the palate - plenty of unsweetened chocolate and roast malts, a touch of dark fruits. Very nice, particularly when the chill has left the glass.

Aftertaste: the malt profile drops away, leaving heavier dark fruits and some hop bitterness. Very nice.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a moderate carbonation that brings the flavour through nicely - if you decide to let it warm enough.

Overall: a very nice American Porter - not overly flavoursome, but a fantastic mid-slow sipper once it has warmed sufficiently. Alternatively, at the right price (we get majorly ripped off in Australia) this could be a great sessional beer.
