Poured to a pokal glass.

A: The body is pitch black. The head is beige with a 5mm thickness.
S: The aroma is very interesting, as it has a profile of coffee (yet weak coffee), roasted malts and a small hint of burnt things and in the end, a splendid hoppy aroma for a Porter. Wasn't defenately expecting this.
T: The taste is mid way between a Euro Dark Lager and a over roasted malt Porter. It's somewhat empty but still looking for the coffee and chocolaty hints of the roasted malts. In the end, a very slight hoppy taste on Chinook.
M: Body is low as expected. Carbonation is perfect. Bitterness is higher than expected and actually better.
O: The aroma got me but the taste isn't that great. However, a hoppy Porter seems to be a nice style to dive in.

Keg, Small Bar, Bristol - Pours dark brown with a thin tanned foamy head. Nice lacing. Smell - coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Taste - sweet, cocoa, light citrus notes, nice crisp bitter finish. Super smooth mouth feel. Great well balanaced coffee chocolate, light hopped porter.

L: Pours a rich black. Held to the light, still black. One finger of dark tan head. Layers of Guinness-like lacing.

S: Toasted malts. Espresso. A hint of chocolate. Tree bark.

T: Exactly follows the nose. Earthy.

F: Medium body. Bitter. Astringent. Hint of sweetness.

O: More like a stout than a porter. But excellent. Quite robust. Big, earthy, toasted profile. Rich head lasts to the bottom of the glass.

A: Black as coal with a bright orangey brown head.
S: Estery coffee.
T: Bitter and only just a bit of sweetness. Only a hint of orange marmalade but lots of coffee. Nice grassy aftertaste and earthy hoppiness.
O: On the level but pretty dull. And needs sugar!
