3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Toweringly huge, dense dark-beige head, which proves unstoppable @ pouring; very dark brown beer; lots of lace. Coffee, moccha, and dark chocolate in the nose, semi-sweet, very roasted; "creamy" nose, if that makes any sense. Very roasted to burnt flavour with bitter chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Quite dry, despite a remaining mild-sweet impression. Some ripe banana retronasal. Well-bodied, slick and some alcoholwarming. Alcohol comes out after swallowing, no doubt partly responsible for the sweetness perceived. Decent porter with good balance: sweet, but nowhere too sweet.

coffee, hint of plastic, dough and nuts. little acid initally with fresh hops, burnt malts, a bit too carbonated for my taste, well balanced apart from that.

Nearly black pour with a light brown head. Aroma is unreal. Molasses, prunes, dark raisins, toffee, coffee, chocolate and booze. Flavor is sweet and boozy. Chocolate, molasses, prunes, italian roast coffee and vanilla. Awesome shit.
