From Sydney Wine Merchants

A - black body, full four fingers of head fade to film/ring, clingy lace, good.

S - typical English porter, roast, ash, cigar box, with moderate coffee notes.

T - delightfully creamy, with a milky coffee dominant taste. Add nuts. Roasts malt and moderate earthy hops.

M - smooth, creamy.

O - very well made, surpised I have not had before. Not usually a fan of this style but maybe the higher ABV removes the watery aspect sometimes found in this stlye.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a brown color and a slightly cloudy consistency. There was an inch of off white, somewhat long-lasting head. Middling lacing.

S: A lot of coffee in aroma, as you might expect, with a little bit of malt as well. A little top heavy.

T: Like the aroma, the flavor was geared too heavily towards the coffee. There was a bit of malt and a hint of chocolate, but it seemed way off kilter. Also, there was a thinness to the flavor that wasn't attractive.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a thin finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is really kind of a misfire. There are certainly worse porters out there, but none so out of balance.

330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/16/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, roasted malt, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee, dark/roasted malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roast, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice coffee porter. Good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Decent sized light brown head dies to a quarter inch or less of creamy froth above a very dark brown to black colored beer.

The aroma is on the lighter side with heavy coffee and lighter malt notes.

Creamy rich coffee taste with maybe some maltiness coming through as well, but definitely coffee outweighing whatever else is trying to come through.

The coffee taste sticks around with a light dryish aftertaste that leaves an almost creamy film coating my tongue.

I need to search out a chocolate porter/stout from these guys, I think if they make one of those that compares to this with chocolate, damn, I can dream can't I.
