2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle. Deep amber body with a nice beige head. Lively carbonation. Mild aroma of coffee and acidic fruits. Flavor is light acidic, mild roasted malt and acidic coffee. Slightly harsh bitterness. Thin body and aftertaste of sour coffee. Not very good, I believe the sourness is not intended and this is a batch gone bad.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown in colour, a little lighter than i was expecting. Off white creamy head that lasts quite a while. Aroma of dark malts and raisins. Taste of light coffee and malt sweetness. Seems a little of style, it has a smoker taste to it. Quite carbonated and overall not too bad but leaves a slightly sour aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Cerveza degustada en el Barcelona Beer Festival. Mini-Pinta (20cl). De color marrón oscuro y cabeza beige, la espuma se mantiene bastante bien. Aroma malteado con toque de chocolate con leche. Siguen las notas de chocolate en boca, junto con vainilla y bastante lúpulo añadido. Lo cierto es que se nota más de lo esperado. Cuerpo y carbonatación medios. Buen equilibrio en general.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
30/11 0.33 l bottle from Vinoteca Belostikale, Bilbao. It poured hazy darker brown body with small brown head. Nice caramel and raisins aroma, sweet. Flavor was only a little bit sweet, more neutral or bitter with caramel, chicory and coffee towards the finish. Medium bodied with moderate, sweeter caramel and somewhat bitter to sour coffee. This batch was obviously of regular quality, unlike some infected I might read here. Pleasant beer, although not really a porter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Craig’s ’need some cupboard space tasting.’ Poured a cloudy brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of leather, coffee, chocolate and caramel. Similar flavours with chocolate and coffee quite prominent. A foamy mouth-feel and a dry finish. Not too bad.
