DSG (5632) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Pleasant roasty aroma with coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Nice roasty flavor, bittersweet, with some coffee and a bitterish finish, slightly burnt and ashy. Medium-bodied. Nice.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pretty dark and opaque brown, nice and steady dark beige head. Nose is rich with dark chocolate, fresh coffee and roasted malts. espresso flavors, somewhat ashy notes, earthy hops, medium bitterness. Medium body, a bit too spritzy, well balanced and quite dry. Very decent.

I really like this. A nice basic porter, but sessionable with rich malt flavor and a clean aftertaste. Very good.

Dark brown molasses color with a creamy head. Aromas light smoke, chocolate, slight wood, medium roast and toast. Flavors light smoke, light wood, medium chocolate. Light to medium robust, medium sweet, light malty finish and aftertaste. Good well rounded porter with no particular flavor or aroma to dominate.

12 oz. bottle in a pint glass. Pours a dark brown with a medium, light mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Taste is mostly roasted malts with a little bit of chocolate, no coffee. Not too bad, but I’m not really a porter/stout guy.

Liquide brun ayant une mousse beige qui flotte au-dessus et semble vouloir laisser une écume à la parois. Ça sent les grains grillés ou rôtis, le levain et le houblon. C’est acidulé en bouche et amer, laissant passer une douce amertume accompagnée d’élans fumés. Tout en étant aqueuse, elle imprègne néanmoins les papilles et le palais de toutes ses particularités. Embouteillée le 11 novembre 2013 (927-181213)
