2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a small brown head. The aroma is mild oxidised with boatloads of bread syrup, sugary dark fruits, sweet liquorice and soy. Old hops alongside a touch of apple tobacco and wet leather. Light smoky and meaty. Fat malty, but not elegant on the nose. I have no hidden agenda; this is just not my cup of beer. The flavour is light to medium (near medium) sweet, medium bitter and tiny, tiny acidic. Dark bread syrup, liquorice, soy, light chocolate, toffee and hops. The mouthfeel is light sticky with light to medium carbonation. Dark, sugary malt finish. Medium bodied. I like the idea - a malty English strong porter, but this more like sushi soy than a well-aged beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oily black liquid with brownish head that diminishes quickly into almost nothing. Aroma is loaded with syrup, along with dark chocolate and suggestions of tar and soy. The alcohol is well hidden under a blanket of sweetness. Mouthfeel is super smooth and bit lifeless. There is coffee at first, then comes dried fruits, syrup and dark chocolate. After is licorice and sugar - which is very typical of a young Polish porter for example. Body is light, with low bitterness. This is a pretty good beer, but I’ve had tastier Imperial Porters, that are less syrupy.
