Bottle. Pours oily black with a very slight tan ring. No lacing. Overall very light carbonation. Aroma of light chocolate and fresh coffee grounds. Taste is sweet vanilla tinged coffee. It really lingers on the tongue. Not cloying at all. Very velvety mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Wish it finished a bit more dry.

Associated Supermarket, Bushwick sixer ($15): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is light porter. Body is pretty light. Slightly sweet. Nice amount of roasted malt. This is a pretty average porter, but definitely good considering where this is from. The best of the 961 beers that I have tried.

330 ml Bottle picked up at Sam’s Beverage Shop in Beirut. Pours a dark thick brown almost black color with a fast to go brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, nuts and sweet wood. Taste is very complex and mellow but much like the aroma. Palate is smooth and leaves you wanting more. One of the best beers in the Middle East.

Bottle from Sam’s Beverage in Hamra. Pours a dark brown color with no head. Roasted malt aroma. Medium body, even dry/sweet dark malts flavor balance. Dry finish. Starts a bit harsh but mellows quickly. Ok.
