4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half liter bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha, cellar aged a while (2 months?). Pours a very dark brown with a light brown head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has cocoa powder, caramel, and espresso, with faint smoke. Taste is of sweet caramel, significant bitter roastiness, some milk chocolate, molasses and hints of salty meat smoke. Medium to full bodied. Faint alcohol. Finishes bittersweet, with a nice balance of the two. A touch richer, and this would be world class.

Pine coffee aroma. Sweetness in there too. Dark appearance with wispy yellowish head. Low carbonation. Creamy texture. Bitter aftertaste but there is a sweetness in the malts. Woody pine dark chocolate with liquorice flavours. Well balanced. Very nice.

Light auburn head with a full bodied flavor. Perfect beer for dark crafted fans. I was pleasantly surprised by this porter and it’s slightly chocolately taste. Don’t expect to see any light seep through your glass.

Aroma of dark chocolate and some coffee. Strong chocolate flavour with burnt coffee. A little to burnt and a little to one dimensional in the flavour for my taste. Slightly to bitter too.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a small tan head. Feels at first like very heavy burnt
wooden notes, just like sitting at a campfire, which then evolve into lots of roasted notes, coffee
mostly but there’s also a sweeter side to it like some cocoa powder, some wood and vanilla is there as
well. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. Roasted coffee and cocoa in taste mostly at first. There’s some slighlty
bitter and light woody notes too. Towards the finish some vinous notes appears along with some hints of
plums. This beer was a nice surprise.
