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.
