2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 (Bottle) Very little hoppiness but lingering bitterness and astringency. There isn’t really any nice dark maltiness to it. Although the aroma is of chocolate (and is really quite nice), the taste is uninteresting, thin, and muddled. Compared to other porters it has very little rich chocolate or dark fruit flavors that I look for. I’m very surprised by how well this is rated. Not a good porter.
