Opaque black color, small beige head. Dry tobacco ash, vegetables in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Tobacco, some wood, light notes of vegetables. Too ashy for my liking.

Boldly brown beer with cinnamon coloured head which is nice and thick. Dark chocolate, espresso coffee and some herbs in the aroma. Roasted malts, chocolate and herb-like hop flavors in the end. Hints of espresso too. High carbonation but sadly thin body.

Poura black with a little white head. Aroma of dark, roasty maltiness, coffee, some licorice. Taste is dryish, very roasty; flavours of chocolate, coffee. Palate is medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Overall this porter is very tasty given the strength.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is a lot better than the taste, quite surprisingly. Dark and cigar box. The aftertaste doesn’t hold long. OK, but nothing special.
