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.

Courtesey & thx! to Kraddel. 75 cl. bottle sampled during Borefts 2013. I was pretty exited about this one. Pours black with a huge beige, creamy overflowing head. Nose is chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, fruity, sugar sweet, not really getting passion fruit. Taste is sweet roast, chocolate, grainy, hint ash, bitter herbs, not really getting passion fruit, maybe some of its peel, hint herbs, chocolate, coffee grounds, fudge. Carb. is way too high. I love CCB & passion fruit so I had high hopes for this one. What I got was a middling porter with no passion fruit, pretty disappointing.

Bottle shared by some nice fellow at Borefts, 2013. Big passionfruit nose, chocolate, fudge, very gassy, almost undrinkably so, light and airy. Flavors of coffee, passionfruit, somewhat weak. A bit funky. No thanks. This just doesn’t work.

Pours a dark brown beer with a good white head. Smells passion fruit and coffee. Tastes coffee and passion fruit and orange. Average carbo, medium body and a dry texture. I like this one.
