3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single 11.2 oz bottle purchased from Hunger Mountain (Montpelier, VT) for $4. To the snifter it pours a richly purplish dark-brown with a trim not-exactly-tan-but-not-exactly-khaki-either head. Like so many in the style, I’m getting a surge of figs and dates, roast, candi sugar, caramel, English yeast, cocoa and hops to the side. Damn fine! Tastes as it smells, however there’s an intriguing earthiness by swallow which is tryingly hushed by leather, charcoal and brown sugar. Getting some ginger notes, too. It has this rather interesting warming sensation you find out by your first sip, so not accurately hidden at all. Goes from sweet, to earthy to grainy to...I don’t even know what! Exciting beer nonetheless. Glad I had the opportunity to try out a Swiss porter without having to travel very far. But, I don’t know, this almost too sweet to handle. I’d say this was one of the more unbalanced porters I’ve had. Finishing it, though.

Servie en bouteille trop fraiche
Noir avec nuance brune
Nez avec une légère oxydation, cerise, confiture
Bouche oxydation, cafe, fruit compoté
Palais agréable amertume présente pour le style mais pas désagréable bien que quand même trop desequilibree, manque la base de malt a la fin.
Dans l ensemble bien mais sans plus...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: sour cherry, plum
Appearance: dark red, creamy head
Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness
Palate: long finish, average body, fizzy carbonation
Too carbonated, very fruity and dry, roast and coffee notes only in the aftertaste. Atypical like much every beer from Bad Attitude.

Ottima porter molto cioccolatosa e ricca di note di caffé e tostate, riempie la bocca e soddisfa gli amanti dello stile.

Bottle, pours dark black, aroma was light roast, taste had a little soy sauce so it seemed like it might be a little old, but overall it was good, the stubby bottle was fun.

Edit: definitely started too cold, shows it's true potential at approximately 10-14C.
