3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50 CL from Sharky Dodson.
Some vinegar out of the bottle, that fortunately goes away rather fast. What’s left is a very faint aroma of fresh cut pumpkin and green grassy homebrew-ish hops. The flavour is dry burnt malts (no coffee or chocolate), light body, and (surprise!) quite a hoppy and bitter finish with notes of citrus. Not bad, but rather simplistic, and lacking the fruity chocolaty goodness that we like in a porter.

Tasted it couple of times and every time it was nearly a disaster - no complexity, bitter, no sense of chocolate or coffee

the aroma of caramel malt and toast with shades of chocolate... the taste is caramel and chocolate with good hopping... aftertaste is dry and bitter... nice porter in American traditions...

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Medium caramel head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and some citrus (it seems to be unwanted, but it plays brilliant role in flavour). Strong bitter in taste and very long-lasting bitter aftertaste. Dark bitter chocolate in flavour. Beer’s body is full, texture is thick. It’s hard to drink a lot of such beer, but it’s definitely interesting to be tasted.
