On tap at the Portland Brewhouse.

A: Served a mahogany color with a good tan head that fades slowly to nice lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, some chocolate with a bit of coffee and a trace.

T: Tatse of roasted malt, dark chocolate with a bit of coffee. Nice bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and quite creamy. Nice balance.

O: Very drinkable beer. Nice take on the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a two finger black n tan. Fine head, which fades too quickly to a film. Little lacing.

Restrained aromas of leather, wood shavings, and chocolate, a little coffee.

Taste is malt - not too roasted - and dark chocolate well integrated. Smooth finish. Quite a moderatley bitter porter rather than the sweeter style to go with higher ABVs.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, carbonation a little high for style.

Overall a solid English style porter. Moderate flavour overall, doesn't build, doesn't overtake itself. Good beer-drinkers beer. Not the worst of the JS offerings either.

Serving type: bottle

16oz cylindrical James Squire glass at 30 knots bar.

Poured with minimal off-white foam. Dark brown to black appearance with a hint of red on the outskirts of this. The foam dispersed quickly to leave a little crown around the edge of the glass.

Smell was a little restrained, partly due to the cool serving temperature. Some light coffee grounds are there with dark chocolate.

Taste has a modest amount of chocolate there, with the barest trace of the coffee.

Mouthfeel is pretty full for the size of the beer. The finish is made full with the chocolate flavour. Not a lot of bitterness, but it doesn't really need it with the gentle flavour.

A pretty average porter. Nothing there to offend, but not much to get hyped up about. Pretty modest, dependable and reasonably sessionable.

Serving type: on-tap
