3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Nordic.
Reddish dark brown beer with mocha colored dense and persistent head. Aroma is faint, has litle roastiness and bitter chocolate. Flavor is sweet with cocoa, chocolate and malts. Has a hefty bite of bitterness on the finish, leading into chocolaty aftertaste. Mouthfeel is little thinner than medium but soft with little stinging carbonation on the edges. A tasty porter with a good palate for this ABV.
