delicious. to me, it's perfect. there may be better porters that i don't know about yet but this is exactly what i think a porter should be. the chocolate smell the chocolate taste, the coffee, the perfect amount of sweetness without being overwhelmed by sweetness, the drinkability.

Bottle: an embossed 500mL brown bottle with a stylish Brittish label. A good package.

Appearance: pours a solid, very dark brown in colour with one-finger of creamy, tan head. The head has good retention and lacing.

Aroma: heavy roasted malts - traditional cocoa and coffee. A touch of spice. Typically demure.

Taste: fairly rich in flavour, following the nose. Strong roasted malts with some spice backing.

Aftertaste: some malt bitterness lingers through, with a touch of sweet caramels. Nice.

Mouth feel: a fairly heavy feel with lower carbonation. Pretty spot-on for an English Porter.

Overall: quite a nice English Porter - very traditional and good quality. The price is a bit over the top, as most English beers are in Australia - an equivalent case of 24 x 330mL bottles is around AU$110. Can definitely get similar for far less, but one every now and then won't hurt.
