3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle, dark brown, almost black with a red hue, nice mocca colored head, looks good. the aroma is very muted, a little milk chocolate and coffee, some hops and a little alcohol. the flavor is very simple, some caramel malt on a coffee and dark chocolate base. spicy and vegi hops and a rough lingering noble hop finish. I find the balance not ok, which is on the hoppy side especially in the finish. Plus it is just to simple of a porter, no dark fruit, molasse, burnt sugars..well, but it is flawless.
