3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good caramel and coffe aroma. Have a good dark color for an a Porter. No Head, or no long present. It apreciated a litle sweet, but not too much for my Porter beer concept. This beer have a medium body with an exactly carbonatation. The finish is abrubt. A good Porter, bettere than other wrong called Porters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Looks are similar to those of Del Puerto Porter Stout, as are aromas. However, there is virtually no chocolate in this brew, and it possesses a much more bitter tone. I prefer the non-robust version, personally.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much a Del Puerto Porter Stout on steroids. Not too different from the original and even the ABV is not that much increased.
But I did get a more roasty feeling in the mouth with a solid finish. The aroma is toasted with some caramel and coffee. Reminds me of a Caramel Macchiatto. Very malty with no hops noticeable.
Flavor is a little deeper than the regular Porter but pretty much the same.
Body is medium with a velvety texture. Very drinkable Porter with a big flavor profile.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle] Pitch black with a small but firm beige head. Aroma of capuccino, coffee, cream and toasted malt. Malty flavor with notes of chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Medium bitterness and medium body. Oily texture and well balanced. Not so different from the regular Del Puerto Porter, except for being more bitter and maybe a more accentuaded aroma.
