Pours in dark with little foam. Smooth espresso flavor with some dark chocolate. Not creamy, quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle@home in Trappist glass@approx. 10 degrees C. Pours almost black with medium tan head which quickly disappears with a little lacing. Aroma dominated by toasted bread and roasted malt. Taste also of roasted malt, spiced with espresso and a touch of bitter chocolate. Aftertaste mirrors this, but a little more bitterness kicks in. Dry and not too sweet.The first couple of sips had a metallic taste disturbance, but it seems to wear off completely after a couple of minutes in the glass. Somewhat watery texture and mouthfeel. Too one-dimensional - each mouthful is much like the one before it - to score very highly, but a decent "low" ABV porter.

Butelka 0,33l Kolor czarnobrązowy, nieprzejrzysty, piana średnia trzyma się solidnie. Aromat zdecydowanie kawowy, smak gorzki z kawą w tle, kwaskowe. Solidny porter zachodni ładnie ułożony.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown or black with no head to speak of. Espresso, malt and a metallic note on the nose. More coffee, vanilla, a hint of burnt malt and smoke. Sweet and slightly bitter with a long, smoky after taste mixed with some metallic taste. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Nice but the strange metallic taste took off some of the enjoyment.

Nice porter! Perfect play between roasted malts, dark choco and coffee, some toast and even smoke aspect. Moderate sweetness with moderate bitterness. Doesnt get thin despite on quite low ABV. Well balanced and enjoyable

Surprisingly insignificant and lacking of character. Dark porter without the power from the smoke or malt.
