3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A black color with a thick, frothy head. Aroma displays well the characteristics of a solid roasty malt backbone; it has coffee in abundance, some chocolate, rye bread and nuts. Taste is at first sweetish and chocolaty, later drier and roastier elements appear but overall roastiness is a bit weaker ihan expected. Very little hoppiness. Palate is medium bodied, smooth and creamy. Nicely malty porter, might be better with even more robust roastiness.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Tap@wka. Black. Sweet licorice, dark berries on nose. Some black patent roast. Medium body. Rubbery black licorice. Some dark grainyness I’ve never encountered before.. like the grains have been wrapped in rubber tyres. Interesting, but not really that exciting. Ok porter, but with a strange (but not really bad) mellowness. A bit like an oatmeal porter.
