3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a pretty small head. I found this one to be rather heavy on the roasted malts, but in a very inviting way. The beer itself was extremely smooth and easy on the palate, though it kept up that robust malty and roasted character. Great porter.

Keg at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Black with cream head. There is a chocolate character from the start, lightly lactic with a fruity, sultana note alongside. There are fruity, oily hop notes thrown into the mix. Quite easy drinking and smooth. A pretty decent beer.
