Bottle, creamy beige head, opaque very dark brown to black colour, musty aeoma with cardcoard and some roastiness, flavour of dark chocolate, charred wood and hints of roasted cofee and smoke, suprisingly light bodied. Drinkable but not too good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours brown-black with a big white soapy head. Smells sweet, wine, turpentine, ink and faintly roasty. Tastes sweet, a little woody, a little alcoholic. Light to medium body, overly fizzy, short, faint roasty and alcoholic finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown to black color, cola-like, with a cool-looking huge beige head that ends with a big round bulge that rises above the glass. Roasty aroma, a bit acidic, with a bit of coffee, yeasty notes and faint vegetal hints. Sweetish malt flavor, pretty roasty, with some toasted bread, a bit of chocolate, a "green" hint, light acidic notes and a dry finish with mild bitterness and some coffee. Medium-bodied, slightly over-carbonated at first. Not bad, very light and easy-drinking for a 7% Porter. Alcohol is really well-hidden.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml (tried to be) poured into a tulip glass.
Half of the beer gushed out of the glass.
The remaining half is clear purple-brown. Huge airy head, gone fast but left lace.
Mild black cherries on the nose, with mellow roastiness and yeast.
Chocolate flavors, mild coffee, low bitterness, yeast and some dark fruit tones.
Alcohol is pretty hidden, medium bodied, creamy. Not potent but decent.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Stable big foamy head over opaque body with just a few red highlights (but you have to really look hard) Aroma of roast and coffee, pleasant, but a bit one-dimensional. Taste of heavy roast and coca-cola, very dry. This may be better characterized as a stout than a porter. Like the aroma, it’s pretty good, but one dimensional. Palate is roast bitterness. Decent beer, but could use some tweaking.
