4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed this beer on tap at Hinge in Northmapton, MA. The beer had a rich, thick black color with a dark brown hue and a good-sized creamy-foamy off-white head with good retention and lacing, and great cling. Its aroma featured a blend of chocolate and caramel malt, with light touches of coffee, and some lighter earthy and floral hops. The taste was sweet and malty with features of chocolate, a bit of caramel, and some mild grainy-earthy bitterness, which was well blended. The body was slightly creamy and a touch on the wet side with average carbonation and fizz, and a good, filling and creamy mouthfeel.

Finishes very smooth with the chocolate becoming prominent with a touch of hops. Excellent, full-bodied porter.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Aroma roasted, smoked, light dark chocolate. Very dark colour, quickly disappearing head. Taste is rich in various malty flavours. Roasted and smoked play nicely with chocolate, caramel. Soft creamy mouthfeel, easy drinking despite the relatively higher ABV. Dry roasty and slightly hoppy finish urges you to drink more. Exceptionally balanced, nothing stands out, fun to drink, complex. Very good.

Excellent porter! Ça manquait un peu de mousse mais c’est son seul défaut. En bouche, c’est onctueux et bien chocolaté sans être trop lourd. J’en veux encore!!
