4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is chocolate and dark fruit. Taste is dominated by chocolate, but also has some sweet bourbon like notes but finishes with some smoke/char notes and some hop bitterness. Palate is thick and creamy. This is one of the best porters I've had in a while. Complex and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at De Molen. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a thin broken tan head. The aroma is fruity, a little malt and some alcohol. The flavour is medium bitter with a little liquorice, roasted malt and some resin too. Considering the ABV, the bitterness was well controlled and the palate was smooth and sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Really dark stuff, almost black with a reddish hue. Thin creamy head. Aroma has loads of malt, charred barley and fruity nectars, slight alcoholic touch. Malty flavor has salty licorice, some soy sauce. Slightly worty and sugary finish, but it has rather nice bitterness. Medium to full body, rather oily and low carbonated texture. Good, but somehow boring,

Det heter att skillnaden mellan succé och fiasko kan vara hårfin. Här är den brända sojan så till den milda grad övertung att den stundtals hotar att välta hela skeppet på fel sida hårstrået. Håller sig på rätt köl tack vare en massa annat trevligt som väger i motsatt riktning.
