3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle cold bottle. 1 cm tan head that fades fast. Some lacing. Almost totally black. Aroma was vanilla with some faint sweet bubble gum. Medium-bodied. Taste was rich with burnt smokey malts and sweet vanilla and bubble gum. Some slight licorice as well. Not bitter at all. This beer got better at near room temp. As it warmed up, I got an aroma of raisins and a drier taste. There was also a complex mix of coffee, chocolate and cinnamon near the last sip. Very good porter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown with a really thin beige head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of caramel, fruits and roasted malt. This isn’t a roast bomb, it’s more a background noise than anything, at least judging from the aroma. Vanilla is definitely in there also but it is well controlled. Taste is lightly sweet, not really bitter. Flavors revolve around roasted malt and this roasted malt also bring a slight acidity to the game. No ash but coming quite close I think. Light chocolate. Finish has a bit of astringency also from the roasted malt. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and fine. All in all a nice porter, with a few tweaks it could be world class I think.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice porter, but in a back to back sampling the weaker of the options we tried. Voluptuous yet pert.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown with brown head. Aroma of reisins and dark chocolate. Tastes sweet, a little bit sour. Body is way to light. At least for a beer drinker that’s used to Polish Baltic Porters. Carbonation is low, which is good. Drinkable, but leaves unsatisfied.

What he said…a decent enough porter but not outstanding. I haven’t added enough characters for my rating so you could say - like the beer - it lacks character(s).
