4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - many thanks to Tomer for the trade! Pours deep, clear brown with a tight, creamy beige head. Meaty dark malt aroma, some dirt, charred toast, burnt sugars. Medium sweet flavor with moderate roast, light earthy bitterness, dark sugars, hints of milk chocolate, light tobacco, touches of burnt wood. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Modest sweetness to finish, light dry burnt malts, subtle wood, ash, suggestions of dark fruits, cocoa. Great balance here, with some really nice nuances. Good effort.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL thanks to ThreeCats. Pours a clear deep ruby, fizzier cola head. Nutty, milk chocolate, hazelnut nose. Taste is a bit astringent, some buttery slickness, mild diacetyl, sharper cocoa and mild dark chocolate. Very drinkable- very good. Not major flaws. Thicker diacetyl faux body. Some smoke character is very nice. Very subtle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Black-brown with tan head. Aroma is rich, caramelized chocolate malt, kahlua, toffee. Soft palate is nice and roasty without going overboard in that direction. Is highly drinkable. Rich malt character. One of the better Israeli beers I had on the trip, period. So smooth. Just a really good porter. This brewery seems solid and good.
