3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful midnight black body gives rise to a dark chocolate nose and flavor. An aftertaste of chocolate covered cherry and coffee came through with a nice but not excellent silky mouthfeel that great porters boast. Probably more stout than porter in the taste, this brew is worth a look..or two, or three.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle from Astral Beers. Pitch black, impossible to see through, with a small, creamy and peristent light brown head. Crazy nose, so powerful and in your face that you don’t even need to keep the glass close: tons of roasted malts notes, 70%+ dark chocolate, vanilla beans, some subtle licorice presence as well. Taste follow suite with no surprises: slick and velvety mouthfeel that doesn’t feel cloying at all, moderate but clean and lingering toasted and earthy bitterness, plenty of both chocolate and coffee taste. Excellent drinkability considering the ABV. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Superb!
