Poured from a 33cL bottle into a cervoise glass. Best before the end of 2011. "A U.S. Style Porter."

A: A big ol' three-finger head almost as dark as the beer it crests. Great retention. The beer is black as sin and impossible to see through.

S: Obscenely sweet and dripping with fruit. Juicy apples, tropical coconut and banana, and overripe berries. Strong and heady. Gee.

T: Hmm...Creamy coconuts and berry blasts (seriously...I might as well be chewing on strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries) for ages, then a bitterer, roasted, porter-y maltiness comes bubbling up to totally blow away the endtaste. Colour me impressed with the sheer magnitude of flavour and irrepressible fruitiness. If this is your thing, you're gonna go wide-eyed and probably stay that way. If it's not, you might not like it too much. The aftertaste has impressions of chocolate-covered coffee beans.

M: Creamy-thick and near-perfect.

O: A fabulous porter, perhaps marred only by prejudices that predispose me to expect porters to be bitter rather than sweet. Though unexpected, the flavours were no less appealing, if slightly unbalanced. Still, highly recommended -- another roaring success from Luckie Ales.
