US Style Winter Porter
This beer pours a deep chestnut brown, with a billowing cappucino head. It has aromas of forest fruits and a biscuity, malty body. Generously hopped with US varieties, it leads to a lingering bitter finish..

olio (9276) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2014
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 10/2013.
Pours deep dark brown, practically black color with a large off-white head. Very nice chocolaty aroma, mild caramel, mild hops and roasted malty notes with an overwhelming coffee/licorice finish. Sweet licorice and somewhat minty flavor, some cocoa and malts, finishes chocolaty creamy. Very smooth and easy to drink, slightly bitter malty aftertaste, the minty licorice gives a nice twist. Nice and interesting.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Poured a dark reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of deeply roasted malt, dark chocolate, lightly sweet latte. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, slightly phenolic on the Baltic side of porters really.

Bottle, 11C. Dark brown with a beige head that fades to a coat. Aroma of molasses, coffee, plums, fake cherries/ nail polish. Fruity flavours rapidly overtaken by ash and burnt coffee. Didn’t get any more welcoming as it warmed.
