3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank 10-11-2014 in my new room! Still okay, but expected more of the beer since it is a porter. Normally I like the better. This one has not a very full taste. Bitter, coffee, dark chocolate, but also a bit watery.

Superb porter. Head huge and uneven and staying forever. Has everything that makes a porter great. Coffee mostly, some chocolate, that nice dry powdery finish. This is a little masterpiece.
Bottle from Van Nap in Woerden.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20140815) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had chocolate, roasted malts, liquorice and mildly fruitiness. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were chocolate, burnt malts, coffee, ash and bitterness. Afteraste was burnt and bitter. A very burnt porter with unpleasing unidentified flavour. Still a balanced brew.

Draught @ Pikkulintu. Aroma has rather sweet cocoa tones and some licorice. Flavour is sweet with salty licorice, soy sauce, some herbal tones and licorice. There is an odd, grainy and hayish off-flavour here I do not find nice. At the end of the glass I learned to ignore it though.
