3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque dark brown color, medium sized off-white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma is quite faint, I only get malts, a hint of caramel, a little earthy. Taste malts, again some caramel, a touch of hazelnut, earthy, lightly ashy, quite some roast and moderately bitter with a slight touch of red fruit in the background. Decent body, suitable quite soft carbonation. Good porter.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Pours a murky brownish color with no head. Hmm.. smells kinda sour with loads of roast and coffee. I think this is a bad bottle. Taste has alot of sour notes as well. Along with roasted malts, tar and smoke. Feels watery, is flat and I’m guessing (and hoping) that it’s not supposed to be like this.
