3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color, good beige head. Aroma has American citrus-fruity hops, underlying caramel and roast. Light bodied. Front has some crystal malts then American hops: citrus, fruits, pineapple. Tickling bitterness mixes with late coffee and chocolate flavors. Nice and rich although light. I think this is more like a black ipa than "porter".

A colablack beer with an almost medium and beige head. The nose is roasted and liquirice, some salt, also grapefruits and citrusfruits. Taste is strongly roasted, coffee, quite dry, medium bitterness and grapefruity sourness. The end is quite dry, strongly roasted and almost burned. Medium- bodied, low carbonation, easy to drink. Nice Porter with "US style" that is noticed as grapefruity, giving freshness to otherwise, quite dry and roasted feeling.
