3.48/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color porter with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light dry roasted notes with subtle chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by dry bitter roasted malt notes with some subtle chocolates notes with light green herbal notes. Body is fuller than average with good carbonation. Overall this was enjoyable but not sure this should be rated so highly.

3.59/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, no #freshbeer info.

Appearance: Milky, creamy and pock-marked head, dark tan in color. Pitch black body with rings surrounding the glass.

Smell: coca, bitter chocolate, slight molasses, charred wood, fudge.

Taste: Raisins, oatmeal cookies, bitter chocolate (chunks of it) with some roasted coffee. The bitter chocolate would need to to have more sweetness as it's a bit unbalanced.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation tad high, full body though but bitterness a bit overdone.

Overall: When at room temp, gets better but abrasiveness makes this one unbalanced and an average porter.

The beer is black, very dark black for a porter. The head is beige in colour, very dense and sticks well to the glass. The aroma is dominated by roasted malts, some chocolate and hops (piney). The aroma intensity is medium to high. The chocolate in the aroma is more like milk chocolate than dark chocolate. Nice aroma, very good.

The taste is roasted malt and some piney hops. The roasted malts and the bitterness linger in the mouth for a long time, very nice.

Medium body but its too carbonated in my opinion.

Another good beer from Dunham.

Thanks to Papat444 for this one.

Beer pours black with a very large tan head. Retention is excellent- the head seems to just sit there, immobile. Slowly fades leaving some lace.

Smell contains roasted malt, wood, chocolate. A bit of hops, subdued compared to the malt. Pretty full scent, rich.

Taste is similar to the nose. Lots of roasted malt, a big dose of chocolate, some wood and smoke, and, at the end, a juicy, citrusy hop flavour. Nice.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Overall, quite good. An enjoyable porter.
