This just goes to show how hard it really is to brew a decent porter. BrewDog makes many a world class beer, but the libertine Porter was is definitely not one of them. It’s almost like it’s an unfinished brew, and there’s definitely something missing here. It’s rather thin at the pour, the color is not that inviting either and reminds me more of a cola softdrink than anything. There are some hints of caramel and rye in the aroma which aren’t a scam, because that’s the main thing I taste too. Everything vanishes before you can really get a load of it though, from head to taste.. There’s a reason why brewers more and more pull out porter of their production, as it is simply a timeconsuming science to make the perfect brew. The Libertine Porter is nowhere near being an interesting one..
