3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330 ml from Maruhn - Darmstadt (D). Black Porter with an average and fleeting brown-beige head. Strong aroma of roasted, chocolate, coffee, dust and nuts. The taste is typical Porter, soft, toasted, choc, coffee, vanilla. However it’s rather slight, without acridity and heavy hop. Robust, hints of fruits, licorice, slight bitterness of roasted and finally dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow, I actually found an unrated brew in my stash (garage min-fridge) - lots of ticks in town recently and I must have gotten sidetracked. I’m not sure that a 12 oz longneck could have a better appearance - clean label and graphics, dark beer that you can’t see through, dense tan head. Maybe if the bottle was embossed or had a silver foil neck, but this is close enough to a 5 for appearance. Mellow, nutty sweet malty aroma with faint cane syrup/light molasses. Exceptionally smooth - nice roast, mild coffee - low bittering otherwise. Dry, zero fruit, no toffee or caramel Medium body, roasty/toasted soy nut finish. Quality. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.
