3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle poured into stem glass. Pours a very deep black with a tiny head which quickly fades to good-sized ring. Aroma ivery roasty and coffee-like with some black chocolate notes. Taste is light-medium bitter from the roastyness. Body is medium with a thin-slick texture. Carbonation is very soft. Finish is slightly astringent with some slight bitterness, but of course nothing compared to their black IPA. Overall, a good robust porter, but I’ve had better. I’m thinking about Hill Farmstead’s Everett here but I guess the comparison isn’t very fair. Pretty enjoyable but it doesn’t stand out that much.

Drank with Marijn at home before heading to Dave’s birthday party 20-5-2016. Was a gusher. Beer has a rich porter taste especially in the end. Very much carbonation, which masks the taste and diminishes the mouthfeel. That’s too bad, because behind that, this beer showed promise, very fine porter-hints.
