12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color. About one fingers of creamy mocha-colored head is formed with a creamy texture and mediocre retention. Good lacing is left on the glass, at least. S: There’s a definite vibe of stewed dark fruits. I also note chocolate (a good deal), brown sugar, and licorice. Definitely serviceable as far as the style goes; too bad my dislike towards licorice pulls the score down somewhat. T: Yeah. It’s definitely heavy on both dark fruits and licorice, especially on the opening. A definite roasted barley note creeps in on the back end, to pair with the crisp, dry finish. This doesn’t excite me too much, plus its single-dimensional flavors don’t help. M: This is very light for a 7% porter. Combined with the crisp, clean finish, the drinkability is excellent. The crispness is replaced with a bit of sweetness after a few sips, but this could still be chugged regardless. A bit undercarbonated, too. O: Any beer that I can pick up a lot of licorice flavors in is likely to get a big fat ’meh’ from me - the only reason this doesn’t is because of how damn drinkable it is. Even still, I wouldn’t seek this one out in the future.

Kita (1595) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 3, 2015
Bottle, 0.355l, shared with Tomaz. Pours pitch black color with thin and quickly diminishing light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar and licorice. Taste starts with sweet and rich roasted malt with chocolate and nutty note, follows by licorice and dark fruits’ acidity and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Smooth and easy going...

egg (174) - USA - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle on 10/28/15. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates to a ring on the outside of the glass. Nose is coffee and roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is the same. Robust roasted malt. Coffee, cocoa, not much else but hits the style profile and does it well. Some smoky elements perhaps. Tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark in color on pour with a brownish head. There was a nice chocolate and smoke flavor to this beer. Not as sweet as most porters, and closers to a stout beer.
