WABeerFiend (324) - - JUN 10, 2015
Poured from a bomber into a chalice today. A: Milk chocolate, coffee, and some woodiness. It’s very mild. A: 1/2 finger cream-colored head that fades to a ring and spots of foam. Black body with lots of red in the glass. T: Honestly, there is no flavor here. There might be a hint of milk chocolate but it’s just a fleeting wisp of flavor. P: Too thin even for a porter. O: It’s drinkable, but so is tap water.

650ml bottle. Murky dark brown colour with average thick, frothy to creamy, off-white head. Roasty dark malty aroma with hints of vanilla, marshmallow, a not really smoky, somehow diffuse roasty-smoky touch. Thin body with a average carbonation. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, artificial vanilla and thin. Aftertaste is vanilla and light roasted malts. Just to thin... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
