3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent choice for my 50th Porter. Interesting fruity nose, covering a wide range of berries and pears. The beer is rather clear, more of a strong Belgian ale kind of look, with a dark-mahogany body and a kelpish light brown head. Flavours of fruits, with dates, plums, cranberries, orange marmalade, caramels, malts, pine needles, and a bit of allspice that lingers for longer. Although complex, it seems to be perfectly brewed, wit all flavours roudly and smoothly blended together. Nice and resinous for a 4.5%, but still somehow thin and pleasurably easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (#543). Pours brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee with hints of smoke. Surprisingly bitter, I expected a pretty sweet beer, especially after about one and a half year on bottle. A bit thin, but quite nice. Fairly dry and bitter finish. Wouldn’t mind more of this, but I guess it is too late now.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l #544 bottle shared with ClubGonzo and Inbreak. Thanks! A little treat tasted neck to neck with the 2011 version. This one pours a light blurry brown body with a nice medium sized tan head. Mild but nice aroma with a distinct cocoa tone in the aroma. It also has some subtle chocolate and a hint of cardboard. Quite nice. Average carbonated this, with a mild oily texture. Nice subtle chocolate and dry cocoa powder flavors with a hint of gentle spices. Quite elegant, really drinkable and actually very good! 01.03.2012
