look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Service Temperature, 35 degrees. Judging Glassware, Belgian Tulip, 12 ounces.

This is going to be a quicky, since much the grey and white foamy head, it dissipates throughout.
Observing, the dark pool I don't really detect much light or clarity. The foamy head that is produced from this beer is mostly grey and white with no lace. A waft of sweet mild citrus creeps across along with some roastedness blends together. Tasting it I detect roasted, licorice, and some mild chocolate & coffee. Overall mouthfeel is mild to medium.

Cheers

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a pale tan color, in the glass it is dark brown/black. A white head tops the beer, light freshly fallen snow on coal.

S: Grainy bread, toffee and coffee. Definitely an English Yeast strain. Almost a smokey thing going on in there.

T: Bread and toffee come through. There is a light fruitiness to it, and the finish has a little more of the coffee flavor.

M: Fairly light as far as the body goes, though there is a little creaminess to it. Carbonation is lively.

O: Overall a good example of the style, classic English porter. Tasty.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Type: 50cl (16.9 oz.) bottle
Glass: Pint glass
From: BevMo in Laguna Niguel, Calif.
Price: $5.25 w/ BevMo card
Purchased: Dec. 23, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 25, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured a dark mahogany semi-clear color with one finger of khaki tan head. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.

Smelled sugary malts, roasty malts, toast, nutty, caramel, toffee, cough syrup and faint coffee.

Tasted quite bland. Nutty, toffee, caramel, roasty, toasty and slightly more bitter than the nose.

Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.

Nothing special about this beer. I probably even overrated it a bit. Won’t try it again on purpose.
