3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Very dark chestnut color. Medium size, tan head, stays. Roast, sweet, very faint alcohol, chocolate, slightly woody and mild smokiness in aroma. Roasted malts, woody, smoky, raw cocoa beans, moderate hops in taste. Cocoa beans and distant herbal hops in aftertaste. Carbonation is maybe bit high, but in other hand it gives the beer nice spicy crispness. Alcohol is very well hidden. Nice brew.

330ml bottle - thanks Kairi
Slightly dishwatery aroma, dirty dark malts, a little raw. Dark, large spongy head. Not getting the alcohol. Husky burntness in taste, dirtiness becomes character. Finish nicely bitter, good old noble hops, nicely white peppery. Grows on you. The weaknesses turn into interesting character traits after the first sip.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Beautiful far ruby red color. It has that lovely porter/stout appearance. The layer of creamy foam has that ice almond color. It has a familiar porter aroma of roasted barley, chocolate and some toffee in the distance but also some floral hoppy aroma’s. There is also a nice herbal cinnamon aroma. Not manny porters have those hoppy aroma’s. It gives the porter a whole new dimension. The taste is devine. It totally represents the smell. Nice full mouth and nice sparkle for a porter.
