3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of coffee and smokey cocoa. Dark brown color, looks thick and murky. Very sweet taste, and a right sized hint of bitterness too. Heavy but balanced and smooth body. Reminds of some sweeter porters only in ale form.

Man, this is a nice beer! Pours brown with a light almond covering and big lacing. Beautiful beer to look at. Nose is woody. Aromas are caramel, English breakfast tea, roasted malts, maybe a hint of espresso. Bit of a grassy hop in the finish. Taste is medium to high sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Mouth is a bit oily, with medium carbonation. This is really great!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Benelux, pours a fairly clear dark amber with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, and some toasted nuts. Flavour of toasted nuts, some very weird spices that I can;t put my finger on, low sweetness. Dominated by those weird flavours. Decent, but nothing amazing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown with a thick head. Relatively malty aroma with light nuttiness and some herbaceous hops. Toasty notes with a crackery character. Good, balanced brown. I didn’t rate it the first time I had it, but I had to come back just to make note of it.
