3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 400th beer list event, pours a deep dark amber brown win a small beige head. Aroma is very stereotypical of a porter, with light roasted malt, dry malts. Flavour of dry roasted malts, toasted malts, and dry cocoa. Awesome dry palate, with a full body for a porter. Great stuff!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark malt (smooth), chocolate, and something bitter that might be coffee. It finishes arguably dry, and coffee bitter. Not espresso, but coffee. It’s a good drink.

Mondiale 2013. A very good porter. Black with almost no head, yet a lace trail. A tasty hoppy porter, with good drinkability. One of my favourites over this fest.

Night will fall and drown the sun when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies.
Night will fall and the dark will rise when a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost; the battle’s won but the child is lost.
