Dark, dark brown with beige head.
Nose is coffee, just faint coffee and other roasted notes.
Taste is very roasted with quite some hops.

Quite bitter with no alcohol(!)
I like porter. This is not the easiest one...

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: very dark brown, nearly opaque, tiny mocha head with a little lace. Aroma: almost completely chocolate, with some coffee notes. Taste: blast of acidic coffee up front, then bitter melted baker’s chocolate. Finish: chalky dry, with roasty burnt coffee and bittersweet dark chocolate lingering. Notes: Pretty good porter, obviously. I only had two bones to pick: the blast of almost lactic acidity before the good roasty coffee and chocolate flavors kicked it, and the overly prickly palate. Still a good porter, but I probably did it no favors by having a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald immediately before.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost black pour with tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted coffee. The flavor is a smoky roast note complemented by a sweet chocolate character. Solid porter and something that I keep in my fridge regularly.

Bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. Coffee beans and milk chocolate notes in the aroma. Coffee, a touch of chocolate, lots of caramel and a little smoke in the taste. Most of all coffee. Medium dry. Quite smooth and creamy texture. Well balanced. Elegant.
