3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Great Leap’s hutong location (#6). Deep black with a tan head and a fudge/cocoa aroma. Light bodied verging on watery, the taste is cocoa, roasted oats and a bit of bitter sweetness. Not bad but needs more body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In aroma coffee with its sourness, sweet chocolate. Dark brown color, transparent over the light. Tiny beige head. In taste it’s smooth and silky, but also quite watery. Mouthfeel is too weak, should has a bit more body. In taste mostly chocolate. It’s rather sweet with tiny bitterness in the back end in the aftertaste.

A quality sweet porter on tap at Great Leap reminded me of a foreign stout. Sweet, dark.
