3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: toasted malts, beacon, salty, smoked. Appearance: dark brown/black, medium creamy beige head. Taste: light bitter, umami. Palate: toasted notes coming up, remains light bitter, light smoked/toasted malts, but not dominating. Overall: light smoked, reminds more of a Porter with some savoury aroma, but very nice. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nem túl sűrű de sötét. Habja nem túl tartós, vékony. Visszafogottan füstös, barna kenyeres és kellemesen rumosdió édeskés illattal. Nem túl testes de csípős az alkoholtól. Gyógyfüves keserűség kicsit híg befejezéssel. Nem érzek semmi különlegeset de jó porter.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, BBE 27/02/15. Pours black with a nice-looking, dark-latte colored head. Aroma is smoky and tarry, somewhat roasted lightly salty liquorice. Perhaps even ashy. Taste is roast and smoke, some liquorice, light coffee. Surprisingly light, medium carbonation. Not as great as I was expecting going by everything said about it.
