3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish brown coloured beer, with thick and quite durable head on top with some smallish lacing too. Aroma has roasted coffee, and really strong roasted malt flavors, slightly burned even. Taste has roasted malts, coffee and a hint of sweetness. Medium body with medium-to-low carbonation makes this beer easy to drink, but leaves a bit mild picture behind. Should have a bit more powerful flavors.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bottle. Pours black with tall tan head. Aroma is toasted coconut, espresso, vanilla. Taste is dark roast coffee, toffee, faint dark chocolate (from the malt?). Definitely need to let this warm a bit out of the fridge. Got more and more complex as it warmed. The toasted elements are spot on. Maybe a little light for a porter but I’m used to american-style porters. Not bad at all.
