3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a mahogany brown with thick tan head, decent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, slight coffee, and a bit of herbal hops. Flavor matches, but just doesn’t have the depth I was hoping for. Body is surprisingly thin and almost resembles many dunkler bocks with a bit more hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Birra tra il rosso e marrone, con una schiuma marrone lievemente più chiaro, cremosa ma fine e non troppo persistente. Aroma di caramello, di tostato e di malti, e lo stesso sapore non tradisce : affumicato, cioccolata fondente, caramello. Birra che non sfigura.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Jet black with a one finger tan head. Head lasted a few minutes. Little lacing. Kept a slight crown. The aroma was nice with chocolate nibs, vanilla, roasted nuts and roasted malts. The taste didn’t quite match the complexity of the aroma but indeed was good. Chocolate and marshmallow yielded to the dry roasted malts. Balanced well. Snappy clean finish with a rather bland ending. Medium body for a porter. Overall it was fine.
