3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (500 ml). From dresden, thanks! Hazy brown with a light beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of strong coffee, light vegetables, milk chocolate and light spices. Taste is slightly sweet with coffee, vegetables, milk chocolate, light spices and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Silky mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Balance is average at best. Too much green/vegetables notes. Subpar Porter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (6% ABV). An almost opaque black beer, with a huge, frothy/creamy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting light brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (very strong coffee, roasted grain/nuts, caramel, hint of chocolate), with notes of vanilla and licorice. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Superor coffee porter. Awesome creamy mouthfeel, and great coffee driven nose. Good balance. At Hanndbryggeriet they know how they brew their stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin pouring black beer with a small tan head, very low carbonation. Aroma of a nice cup of coffee, with some dark chocolate. Taste is sweet sugary coffee, some dark cocoa. Body is thin and undercarbed, feels weird...nice and creamy though. Interesting beer for sure.
