From the 500 ml. bottle stamped L0808-1011. Sampled on April 23, 2014.

The pour is a very dark opaque brown to black with a modest, short-lived cream colored head.

Porters are pretty straightforward dark beers and this aroma is no exception. Everything fits including the dark barley malts, chocolate, sweetness, and muted hop notes.

Thin to closer to medium body with a slight dry and bitter finale.

The taste has the Porter qualities I tend to look for minus the smoke. It features the more traditional chocolate and barley malt flavors, a decent sweetness, and a dry finish that lingers briefly at the end.

A: Pours very dark black/brown, has fair carbonation, a nice tan head, some lacing.

S: Light malt, coffee, light alcohol, some dark fruit.

M: I thought the mouthfeel was a little watery for a Porter, a little creamy, good carbonation.

T: The taste is good and reflects the aroma. Light malt, light roast, light alcohol, and some dark fruit. This beer definitely does not have as much roast malt flavor as some porters. Still, nicely balanced and pleasant. The finish is dry, modestly bitter and lasts for some time on the tongue.

This is a solid beer. The mouthfeel and taste leans more towards a Black Ale than a Porter I think. Not a World Class beer, but I got this at a great price and I think it represents a great value.

Poured from a bottle into a Guinness glass.

Appearance: Decently large head with fine bubbles, tan. The body is dark brown, but not black -- good for a porter.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt and herbal hops in equal amounts. Again, browner than black. Reminds me almost of a bock. Brown sugar.

Taste: Nutty and sweet. Some toffee and chocolate. Very light roasted flavor. The back end carries the hops you get in the nose. No off-flavors. Overall it's good, but not quite bold enough for me. The flavor palate is fine, but I was hoping for a little more of it. Maybe a little hoppier than I expect from an English porter, but not overwhelmingly so.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and smooth up front. Some dryness in the back. Lightly carbonated.

Overall: Good porter, probably fits certain tastes better than others. Closer to the brown ale end of the spectrum than the stout end.
