Dark ruby, almost opaque black, small tan head. Chocolaty and toasted aroma. Very chocolaty porter, aftertaste has lots of chocolate too. Not too sweet, robust and balanced.

Bottled. Dark brown body full of rich tobaco, cigar box and chocolate aromas. A little gem of a beer from a brewery I can highly recommend.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A slight gusher this one. A black beer with a slight purple hue and a dissipating tan coloured head. The aroma has good coffee notes as well as burnt malts and some oily characteristics. The taste has all the same notes as the aroma but the roastiness is the overriding feature. All in all a smooth but robust porter which is a pleasure to drink.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned. Poured dark black, slightly oily, with reasonable light brown head that quickly disappeared. The aroma is lightly smokey with small amounts of sweetish roast malt, milk chocolate and vanilla (possibly leather and oak too). The flavours are the same with a touch of yeast and bitterness. The mouthfeel is slightly velvety, nicely warming, slightly dry and not as full bodied as I expected.

500ml bottle. Black beer with thick frothy dark beige head. Plenty of dark roasted malts, even a bit of toffee. Dark choc/coffee. Quite smooth in mouth, bit of sour liquorice, but a well balanced beer and the best of the bottled Alcazar beers I’ve had. Dark roasted raisins too on the flavour
