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.

Reasonably restrained aroma in a. black pour. Taste is the same - reasonable. Not what I was expecting for the strength...either way!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Negra opaca. 3 dedos de espuma muy cremosa y duradera. Aroma escaso, ahumado y a chocolate. En boca predomina un agrio lacteo que desmerece el conjunto, que es amargo y con sabor a chocolate. Cuerpo medio y carbonatacion media alta. Final seco. De lo peor de una gran cervecera.

Old notes. Just numeral ratings and few words during conversation. Sweet and roasted. Not my thing.
