Marrom bem escura, quase negra. Espuma densa marrom, de média duração. Aroma licoroso, achocolatado, toffee, adocicado levemente café. Paladar levemente adocicado, com amargor crescente mas leve, bastante café. Aftertaste confirma o café e amargor. Corpo leve, baixa carbonação. Uma porter muito bem equilibrada, sem excessos ou sensação aguada de algumas outras conhecidas.

Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa powder, roast, some nice sweet brownie type notes into a nice roasty coffee note, touch of yeast into a bit of red fruits. Taste was a mix of cocoa, coffee, roast into a bit of dark fruit, slight caramel, yeast, finishing slightly sweet, dry.

Alengrin (3223) - BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Robust porter seeking to connect with the rich and old porter tradition from the British Isles, named after the founder’s daughter. Interesting: "we hope to begin a new tradition of brewing (...) that any black beer lover will enjoy". These noble ambitions aside, this brew has a lot to offer indeed: colour is a very dark burgundy, not to say black, under a relatively thick, creamy, dense, pale beige head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma is strong, complex and perfumey for a 5% ABV beer, and displays everything I expect from an American interpretation of porter: tons of coffee beans, frying bacon, bitter chocolate, beef broth, raisins, fresh paint, fresh rosemary, port wine, vanilla beans, paprika, iron (but in a good, ’bloody’ kind of way - sorry), a very faint suggestion of fennel seed, faint hint of smoked herring, coffee liqueur, dried ginger, dried orange peel. Dryish and ’light’ onset, crisp, dried fruits, raisins, freshly cut vegetables (thinking celery or carrots), weak background hint of charcoal, soft carbo, with a smooth, powdery mouthfeel, middle phase consists of lingering but very restrained fruitiness over a full, soft and bready caramelly maltiness, slightly metallic but not disturbingly so, quite nutty too but low on the chocolate department, which I suppose distinguishes this from a stout. Finishes primarily malty, caramelly, but slick and not cloying at all, with peppery and earthy hops playing a balancing role, along with a long-lasting, black coffee-like roasted bitterness; alcohol remains completely hidden, as ought to be the case in a beer of this strength. This is a very fine robust porter indeed, exemplary for its style, with a remarkably high drinkability. Cheers to miss Chelsea!
