3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
65cl bottle. Dark brown colour (and redish tones) with a medium vanilla head, looks ok. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with a hint of smoke. Regarding taste, the smoke is more evident at beginning, but after a few minutes looks similar to coffe (subtle though). Medium body and average carbonation. Overall it is so smooth and pleasant, and one forgets about the alcohol, which is certainly low for a beer like this. Nice brew.

Bomber. This is a nice smoky porter that is not so intense that you smell like bacon for the remainder of the day. Saturday morning breakfast beer.

Ridiculously huge bubbly light tan head. Beechwood fishy quality. Fizzy fuzziness. Needs better definition but nice enough despite it being a shade on the indefinite side
