Dark colour with a light tan head. Noses a bit of ash and dried citrus fruits/hops. Full bodied with slick light watery texture, developing sweet passion, mango and peach notes on the palate. Notes of sourness - a really good beer! Finish is soft and coherently fading.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Collaboration between Cigar City and Amager in honour and with the assistance of Papsoe, one of the top raters on this site. Yellowish beige, thin, creamy head over a very dark, hazy burgundy beer. Strong and enticing aroma of chocolate sauce and cocoa powder, candi sugar, banana liqueur, candied figs, vanilla, raisins, indeed an exotic hint of passion fruit, orange juice, mint, strawberry, cappuccino, mango, sour yoghurt, lime peel, leather, pine resin, meat broth. Taste begins with a rounded, sweet candied fruitiness, some exotic fruits, some fine citric acidity and a suggestion of passion fruit, though hard to identify under the big, deep, chewy maltiness that follows, chocolatey, caramelly, nutty, with a thick oily mouthfeel, a bit meaty, smooth and supple, ending in a satisfying finish of roasted, coffee- and chocolate-like bitterness, some refined, sourish fruite juice, citrussy hop bitterishness and a slick caramelly maltiness. Very interesting, complex and very tasty, but the passion fruit delicacy does get lost a bit, it just pops its head up here and there only to drown in big and viscous chocolatey malts. Which is not a big problem for me - I’m not a fan of passion fruit to begin with.

Growler generously shared by Burg326. Cheers, Adam! Pours a hazy porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, some coffee bitterness, some nice dark passion fruit, and some chocolate. Flavor is similar with roasted malt, some roasty earthy bitterness, and huge passion fruit notes. Medium in body and a nice porter overall.

Keg at CBC Clerkenwell 2nd B’Day Extravaganza. It pours a deep brown body with a medium tan head. Aroma is coconut, cocoa and passion fruit. Some roasted malts but the passion fruit is the star. Taste is more roasty and balanced but the fruitiness comes through and adds a tad of acidity to it. Creamy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very tasty and different.
