FatPhil (9597) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2011
Tap, several times (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
7 Pleasantly tangy hop twist to an otherwise stright down the middle classic rich roasty modern porter - nice!
5 Black, healthy tight tan head.
7 Super rich roast, veering towards burntness, but avoiding astringency. Chocolate comes out in the mouth that didn’t in the aroma.
4- Quite sharp in the mouth, carbonation’s quite aggressive. However, the finish is very pleasantly tangy, and with metric butt-loads of roast.
14 This is porter how I like it. Cheers!

Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Looks beautiful. Aroma of coffee and rich dark chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate, bitter hops and some very light fruitiness. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a dry, bitter and coffee finish. Great dry porter with loads of coffee and chocolate. Kudos for the low ABV.

Aroma is rather light with coffee, some licorice and roasted malt. Flavour has coffee. Some licorice and hints of ash. Feels a bit like Til Via Fra, but this is not so burned and much more easy to drink.
