Roast malt with some dark chocolate. Average carbonation. Pours black with ok head and lacing. Not sure if I’m huge on this ancient yeast - the beer comes off a little plain. Some things do get better after time. Bitter finish. Average carbonation. Bottle.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light brown color with a minimal head.
Aromas of caramel, ash, earthy hops and some dried fruits.
Flavor lacks roastiness, and has some sweet caramel malt and raisins, with lo bitterness and faint alcohol. So so.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
There is a hint of coffee in the aroma which is not very strong. The head is think, but not abundant. It has a dark brown color with a tinge of red through the light. Fairly favorable. A decent porter.
