3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
19 April 2014. Purchased from Gooden in Taipei. Opaque brown-black with fine beige head and lots of lacing. Smells strongly of coffee with some malt and ripe fruit and smoke in the background. Tastes more acidic than the aroma, burnt roasted malts with some very bitter hop and coffee to balance. Body is a bit watery but has nice fizzy carbonation. A great porter.

Fantastic... There are red fruits over a roasted coffee base. It’s like a choco fruit cake. Cake, fruit, then cake again. Amazing

Bottle. Aroma smoke, roasted, alcohol. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is malt-centered, but there is decent supporting bitterness. Smoked, chocolate, light light coffee. Overall smooth mouthfeel, no astringency, very easy drinking. Very good beer, long roasted finish.

Bortimot svart farge med beige skum. Lukter kaffe, karamell og svisker. Fyldig og nydelig i munnfølelse. Kaffe og fruktigheten kommer godt fram i smaken. Fin bitter avslutning. En meget god porter.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks good; a cloudy dark cola with off-white lacing. Smells sold; dark malt, chocolate, and caramel. Tastes like it smells, but more roasty than sweet. Solid on the palate with a bit of bitterness. A nice porter.
