3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Comes slowly crawling out of the bottle and the first pour results in noting but thick, creamy beige foam. The beer is pitch black and smells like bitter chocolate, roasted malt and passion fruit. The flavour is dominated by roasted/burnt/ash notes at first with late fruity notes. Roasted bitterness, dry, and light acidic towards the finish. A bit special without being too strange and flavourwise has a lot to offer for 6%. A bit too high on carbonation, though.

Bottle, thanks Niall. Black with tan head. Lots of passion fruit in the aroma, also quite roasty. Taste is more roasty and less passikn fruit, something burnt. Decent body. Nice

Dark hazy brown, wave of tight bubbly sandy ringed head. Barbecued Passion Fruit, light roast soft juice. Very soft porter vibe, silky bitterness and Passion Fruit so subtly mixed in. Really neat backrolled cold coffee finish. Little sweetness throughout. Love this, and 6%?!

At Fermentoren - in May. Very dark brown with a big and lasting, creamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit with a hint of chocolate. Sweet fruity flavour with chocolate and caramel and a hint of ashes. A touch of yeast in the finish. Well brewed, but passion fruit and porter didn’t appear to be an ideal combination

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen
Bkack color, with creamy head. Light aroma of roasted malt, a bit pungent. Smooth mouthfeel; the roasted malt flavor clashes with the topical and pungent fruitiness.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craft. Dark brown colour, not much head. Aroma is lots of passion fruit, not so much else. But very nice. Taste is less interesting but still good. Passion fruit only comes at the end. Initially is quite roasty, but swilling it around makes the fruit come out. Further down we seem to be alternating between roast and fruit. Pretty good, but maybe not as good as I might have hoped.
