UPDATED: SEP 30, 2015 Had a couple of bottles and was very impressed. Will try again when I can get a chance to really sample as I was in company first tastings. Caramel flavours. Good strength and nice aroma. Raised to 4.0 after more samples. Best bottled one I’ve tried

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a sampler pack received as a gift back around Christmas. Delayed consumption based on anticipated low ceiling for beers from this brewery. Pours a copper color with an off white or almost tan head. Quickly dissipates. Aroma was non-existent in the bottle but gives off a slightly sour dark fruit smell upon pouring into a glass. Malty presence with a bitterness. Taste has elements of caramel and roasted, nutty qualities. Bitter notes come into play towards the end. Slight funk that I’m struggling to determine if it’s from a lack of freshness or intentionally put into play by the brewer. Overall, sweeter than I anticipated but it’s a very average to below average beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cerveja acobreada e translúcida, com espuma fina, clara e pouco presente. Cerveja brilhante e é possível ver bilhar subindo à superfície. O aroma é leve e não remete às porters tradicionais, puxando para o frutado e toques campestres. O sabor também é suave e extremamente equilibrado e pouco complexo, com o prometido pelo aroma se concretizando, com toque de frutas vermelhas e primaveril. O pálato é ok; pouco envolvente e ralo. O aftertaste é agradável e refrescante, porém seco. A drinkability é boa. Uma boa cerveja, porém deixa um pouco a desejar com relação às porters tradicionais, sendo uma cerveja mais easygoing para o dia a dia. Boa para qualquer ocasião.
