The pour a deep ruby red color, the head spumescent, beige, the lace chunky. Nose is malt, caramel, lightly roasted grains, pleasant. Front is malt sweet, the top washy, the finish is modestly dry, minutely acidic, slightly hopped. Drinkable and a "Beginners" Porter, lacks a "Robustness", I like in my Porters, not bad mind you, just a bit "Thin-Wasted.

I don't mind this porter, neither does the bottle shop that i buy it from, they hide it from the rest of the beers, and i get a respectable dirty look from the owner everytime i buy some. Has a copper head, that looks alot like it has too much sediment running through it. but other than that i can't say a bad thing about this Porter. It's not as complex as some porters, but it's chocolate, caramel, slightly nuttish finish is still pretty good.

Not that great, but a bit thin for a porter, apparently this is the shit on tap, but i haven't had that privelige yet, i'll eventually try it on tap though........OK, now i've had it on tap. Much better, more roast and chocolety nuttyness with a dry finish. Still a tad thin, but pleasant, nice for session drinking.

It's a good porter, with all the right porter caracteristics, but not worth shipping halfway around the world for. By coincidence, i bought some Catamount Porter the same day this came in the mail from MJ's Real Beer Tour. Catamount is more complex in every way.
