3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy dark brown beer with a thin light tan head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and spices - especially cloves, but also with lighter notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of vegetables, roasted malt, caramel, and spices, leading to a dry finish.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Gusher. Deep brown, cloudy, huge head. Rich roasty aroma, almost
burnt. Slightly soapy taste, but a really good dark roasted malt taste
too. Big hoppy bite, like a good dutch bock. Finish is roasty, grainy,
burnt and hoppy. Good bock, don’t know how it fits into being a porter.

Bottle @ The Grove, Huddersfield. Dark brown color with red sparks. Minimal beige head. Quite odd aroma of sweet malt and fruit. Flavours of ripe fruit. A bit on the sweet side for me and the body is quite thin,
