3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep ruby body, holds creamy light tan head.
Aroma is quite hop forward; cooked citrus, woody spice, dark chocolate, burnt toffee, bit of espress; quite intense!
Reasonably thick, oily palate; feels like a much bigger beer! Restrained carbonation.
Palate continues with plenty of rich caramel & chocolate malt, some toasted graininess and espresso, with a good hit of citrus rind and resiny pine hoppiness. Moderately high bitterness, some sweetness remains on finish.
Really good stuff! Excellently balance and plenty to offer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bomber. Nice pour of jet black with a big, creamy, tan head that leaves chunky lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted grain. Rich flavor, a bit too bitter for me due to high alpha hops, but very complex and nice overall. It has enough sweetness to balance out the bitter. Drinks very easily for such a rich beer, has a refreshing finish. Full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation, with a rather bitter finish. Very unique, I like it, would repeat.

Bottle. Smooth and chocolaty mouthfeel with a nice kick of bitterness. Not too much roasty character. Well balanced and very drinkable

Pours a dark brown with a medium brown head that lingers. Aroma is mild hops, malt and some chocolate but very muted. Taste is smooth with lots of hops for a porter. Mouthfeel is smooth and there’s some carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hm, this is good. Nice, full, complex aroma of chocolates, smoke, caramels, char (not the fish), a certain evergreen resin and barbecue sauce. Pours dark brown, thick, black as a shoe, with a nice beige head in the glass. Flavours are sweet and salty, very much like some good Baltic Porters, with bitter chocolate, flan, milk chocolate, liquorice, salt, soy sauce, a touch of hazelnuts, nice and bitter in the finish, but perfectly smooth, round, never too charred or too herbal. Creamy, buttery texture, with little carbonation…yummy… this beer has saved my evening of porters.
