3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured black in color with a large light brown frothy head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of dark smoked malts, an earthy yeast with notes of chocolate, caramel and coffee. It tasted a little acidic and slightly bitter with a smoke overtone in the beginning and finished with a little more of a bite with hints of chocolate, coffee and again a smoke overtone that was not heavy at all and stayed with you for an average lenghth of time. Mouthfeel was full in body and creamy in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice tasty and quite drinkable smoked porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Ginger Man way back in 2013. Pours a deep black with a offwhite head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of burnt grains, smoke and some booze. Taste is of coffee and other roasted malt derivations and green hops. Moderately bitter and it doesn’t feel sweet at all. Body is full, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel quite smooth. Alcohol is not as prominent as the nose would indicate. A really nice smoked baltic porter, not a sweet mess like so many others!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Zwart bier met een bruine schuimkraag die snel slinkt. Geur en smaak vallen wat tegen, de rook is moeilijk terug te vinden, de donkere mout is ook meer op de achtergrond. Biertje is vooral erg zoet. Niet vies maar ook zeker geen uitblinker.
