3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
Draught @ Bruxellensis. Black body, tan head, as it should be. Nice alcoholic notes with plenty dark malt and liquorice. Coffee, nuts and chocolate put in an appearance too. Maybe just a little to sweet but it is wiped away by the finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught Near black beer, lots of brownish head & lace. Ink, dark fallen leaves, lots of chocolate, ending slightly sweet-ish. Dry-wry, earthy, leafy taste, (Iím tempted to say: exactly what is missing in an English mild). Complex, layered. Light to medium bodied; long, but discreet bitterish-sweetish aftertaste. Very good porter indeed.
