3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing tis bottle. Brown with a tan head. The aroma is full of licorice with some Belgian yeast and roasted malt. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of roasted malt, with some dark fruit and a light amount of smoke coming through. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Brown pour with loads of sediment, foamy tan head. Aroma of bready yeast, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, creamy and with spices. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, creamy and with a smooth texture. Lively carbonation. Well drinkable, but more like a dark dubbel than a porter.
