fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle from Amstein, Switzerland, missing batch info
Black color with medium sized beige head. The aroma is mild, some roasted malt, almost ashes, and luckily also some biscuit. Lean body, with some roasted malt flavor, light coffee, dry mouthfeel, some ashes, and ordinary bitterness; light sourness in the final.
Calling it a Porter is a bit stretchy. Correct beer, nothing exciting.
