4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, pours cola like black with a small head, carbonation lively, aroma of chocolate, coffee, with passion fruit, the aroma comes and goes quickly leaving a watery finish, but for me it works, pretty unusual. Nice refreshing porter.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 31.10.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Slow gusger. Big slightly fizzy/creamy longlasting head. Aroma is totally overcarbonated and overwhelmed by co2. In the background there is some sweet passion fruit, dark malts, coffee and burnt caramel. Taste is just a shadow of what it should be because of the cardonation, just watery and lots of burnt coffee, burnt caramel, ashtray, and grass. Medium bitterbess. What a waste of money!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Cask Pub & Kitchen. Dark brown with a decent tan head. Smell - vinegar, dark fruits, some toffee. Body is medium to big for a porter, soft carbonation. Taste - ash and lime up front, sourness, apples and slightly astringent American hops in the finish. Maybe a touch of passionfruit, but it’s not screaming passionfruit. Tart without it taking over, semisweet. Some balance. It’s like a sour black IPA. Interesting without achieving anything great.

On tap at Beer Temple. Pours a near clear very dark brown with a wooden brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has roasted malts and sweet dark grains with a touch of passion fruit. Flavor has an interesting combination of sweet dark grains and passion fruit with a bit of underlying roast.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nicely malted, awesomly fruited. Like that passion fruit. Caramel, bit choco. Quite sweet, thou not too much.. balanced with some bitterness in finish. Pleasant for nose. Hmm.. no one wanted to drink this bottle with me, so. .I bought it alone and shared with my family. I knew I would like and I liked it

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with average, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, somewhat blurred fruity hints of mango, passion fruit or something like, a touch of "roasty smoke", dill and gherkin. Taste is initially minimally sweet dark malty, later dry, roasty dark malty, hints of dark chocolate, in the finish bitter with an unspecific, disguised fruity touch, minimally tart, some chalk. Like a failed attempt of flavoured dark chocolate. Disappointing.
