3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Pralines, chocolate, Monte, cocoa, cherry, ash, metallic (skin test confirmed) - after a while just metal. Appearance: Very high head, creates extremely quickly, shrinks quite quickly. Taste: Alcoholic, chocolate, coffee, metallic, very ashy, caramel, cherry, ashy bitterness counters a bit the sweetness, with time the taste gets stronger and more intensive but also the firstly strong metallic note disturbs the first impression of the beer, after the metal gets less feelable it starts to be a great beer. Palate: Body is... even high at the end of the trying, firstly it is low, it seems, finish is semi-sweet, carbonation is medium but it gets lower.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a mostly dark brown color with a thin off white to tan thin head. Messy lacing.
The smell takes on a moderately thin roasty coffee bean to sweet dark fruity blend running into some milk chocolate.
The taste was semi-sweet with the roastiness blending nicely to balance. Delicate aftertaste of the sweet milk chocolate to dark fruits. Dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs about a medium. Bitterness seems to be hidden a bit because of the carbonation. Still, it really moves nice and smooth on my tongue.
Overall, as an English Porter - all of the aromas and flavors match. The feel is good too. I would definitely have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
ASPETTO: marrone, schiuma abbastanza grossolana, bianca e non persistente. AROMA: tostato prevalente, un tocco di floreale. Aroma comunque non molto forte. GUSTO: forte tostato. Birra tendente all’amaro (tostato più che erbaceo), ma che comunque è abbastanza equilibrata. Buona, ma non esplode.
