Drink cool 10-12įC.
Eye: Pours a dark but clear reddish-brown with a small white and rapidly dissipating head and almost no carbonation.
Nose: very complex in the nose. smells sweet but lots of dark roasted malts as well. coffee, sweets, also fruit but nothing distinctive really, spices and licorice in the end.
Mouth: dark bread, pumpernickel, roasted hazelnuts, just a bit watery and metallic and just one sip.
Palate: hazelnuts and dark malts.
Overall: very nice porter, but unfortunately not the best or finest in the world, had better ones for my taste. not as complex in the mouth or palate and couldnít get fruit except for the nose.
