At a tasting in YK23 house in Haifa during brewing Brown Porter, 330ml bottle, pours black color with short ecru head, like espresso, coffee, toasted malt and bittersweet chocolate aroma, bittersweet chocolate and coffee taste, medium-light body, flows, feeling slightly bitter and lively carbonation palate, maybe a little too much lively, sweet and bitter aftertaste, overall a superb beer, although the taste is slightly disappointing relative to the aroma.
