3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of and shared with ozujsko (thanks!)
Poured a very dark red-black with a small to medium sized creamy, thick off-white head that went away slowly. The nose was nice; chicory, chocolate, coffee. The taste wasn’t far off. The same notes, chicory, cocoa and coffee, could be felt. Mild and somewhat sweet (more than it was bitter). A bit dry, with notes of herbal hops in the aftertaste. This was a very likable, drinkable, quality beer that fits in the Porter category more than it does in teh s/h/v category. All in all, way underrated.
