3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at CatBar in Barcelona. Pours a black body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy with some roasts, slightly sweet chocolates, and a bit of a sour acidity. Flavor is better. Lots of chocolates, a nice roast, some earth, a light bready caramel note, and a slight woodiness towards the end. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter with a harder roastiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a light carbonation. Overall, a decent porter. The aroma smelled a bit contaminated, but the flavor was solid. Not bad.

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a smal beige head. Greasy, buttery nose with a little dark, dried fruits. Medium body, lowish carbonation, heavy tar-like roast, some licorice and a very bitter finish - from both hops and roast. The butter notes are very off-putting. 180313

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well-made porter. Pours quite flat and ends up looking like a flat coke, but that’s really the only disappointing aspect to this beer. There is a nice balance of sweetness and crispness on the palate. This is a beer that could certainly improve.
