4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to tulip
Consummation: Roasted, toasted, burnt, charcoaled malts mixed with bitter motor oil.
Adjunct: So is brewed with popcorn a new way of saying highly fermentable corn syrup? Loads of toasted aromatics on the nose, molasses sweetness, nothing too much. This packs in a load of flavour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Totalmente negra, espuma de boa formação e persistência, não tem o que melhorar... aroma de chocolate, cacau, caramelo, café, complexa, densa no aroma. No paladar o café e amargo do malte torrado prevalesce. Corpo denso, média carbonatação. Aftertaste de café e caramelo, médio torrado, um sabor diferenciado. Muito boa.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at the ber geeks X-mas party. Black pour. Ironically not a diacetyl bomb as is advertised (?!?) Weird sweet malty grainy aroma however, roast is light if present at all. Taste is moderately sweet, very light roast character, mild unfermented grain flavors. Palate is med bodied with med-light carbonation. OK.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Mad Sød) 750 ml bottle at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.7%%
Very dark brown, almost black colour on the body, with a good sized and thick, brown head on top. Good retention.
Faint aroma of chocolate and roasted malts.
Great taste though, sweet, with light roasted malts and strong port wine notes, sweet chocolate on the finish. I don’t really get any of the popcorn, maybe at times but that’s more because I’ve read it as an ingredient.
Medium body, soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle share from Jeremy. This one walked a fine line between porter and something a bit more potent. excellently captured the nature of the sweet/roasty style without overdoing, or undercutting, either.
