3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown colour and small head on top. Aroma has yuzu fruit, lots of roasted almost burned malts and coffee. Taste has zesty yuzu fruit and lots of roasted malts. Medium body and medium carbonation. I don’t think that the yuzu fruit and the roasted flavours of the porter played well together.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml. bottle @ home from Caigny. BBF 15/07/2017. Hideous label. Very dark, blackish brown, little mocha head. Nose is thick praline, chocolate truffles, huge aromatic citrus oil, very unique & outspoken (I have never eaten a yuzu), lots of the lightly sweetish citrus, light umami,… Taste is oily roast with lots of citrus oil, sweetish, lots of oil from citrus peel, light pralines, bitter roast, creamy hazelnut, dried orange peel in an almost marmalade-kind of way,… Interesting, if a bit too oily in all directions but noteworthy all the same,… Low carbonation, creamy & oily. Lingering oily citrus peel with quite a bit of umami, low roast,…. Very interesting beer. The base isn’t exactly to my preference but the fruit character on this was quite something else.

330 ml bottle. Pours an opaque, dark brown with a large, creamy, light brown head that laces nicely. Sweet, orange, hoppy aroma with roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet citrus, hoppy flavour with liquorice, coffee, dark chocolate and a dry, mildly bitter roasted malt finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Most unique porter that I have ever tried!
