Mildly sweet porter with indeed some notes of fruit in it. It’s nice, but could have been more outspoken.

On tap at BeerTemple. Rather opaque black pour with rocky, lacy off white foam. Nice passion fruit aroma, very fruity, very light roastiness. Taste is sweet, really fruity light malty body, ever so slight touch of roastiness on the finish, maybe a touch of dark chocolate too. Palate is light and quite dry. Tasty.

Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours dark brown with a rather big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a thick lacing on the glass Smell is fruity with roasted malts, crispbread, passionfruit, yellow winegums, lemon zest, hay, cereal and dark bread. Taste is bitter and tiny fruity sour with toasted malts, passionfruit, lemon zest, wood, oatmeal cookies, charred grains, lemon grass and yellow winegums. Mouthfeel is round, fruity tart, tiny roasted astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter and fruity with roasted malts, passion fruit, dark roast coffee, yellow winegums and dark bread. Weird combination but it works.

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.
