Pours darkest brown. Rocky moka head.
Aroma is intense: coffe, lemon peel, rucola, beef jerky, caramel, black olive, even squid ink.
Dense, fresh and quite long, with an aftertaste that reminds of coffee beans.

Bottle. Pitch black with big, light brown, densed head. Average head retention, good lacing. Strong roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Taste is medium bitter, mainly dark chocolate in the aroma, also roasted dark coffee and some earthy and caramel notes. Medium to full body, thick texture soft carbonation Long, roasty, semi bitter finish. In general good raw porter with strong bitter notes. Enjoy.

An almost black beer with a coffe aroma. It’s too roasty for me and uneasy to drink. The end is too long as well. Not for everybody

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown color with beige head, good lacing. Smell is dark coffee, dark chocolate. A bit chalky. Taste is the same, really really dry with hints of coffee, chalk and chocolate. I like dry, but this is too dry for a porter. Feels like powder in your mouth. Not easy to drink.

Nice aroma of bittersweet malts and sweet chocolate. Very smooth, rich and oily. Fairly intense bitterness but well balanced by the sweetness of the chocolate.
