3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33 cl bottle from Gorki Café Bar; Batch #86; BBD: June 25th 2015) Pours black with little, tan head that dissipates leaving lace. Decent but shortlived head regeneration can be obtained by swirling the glass. Aroma is pleasant, subdued and ashy notes of smoke with a hint of toasted malt. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a toasted finish with very little ascerbicity. Flavour is balanced and neither too sweet nor too bitter. Has a slight ascerbic edge but it’s pleasant. Girlfriend says: "Hum. Quite a lot of taste!"

(Õllenaut Suitsu Porter) Bottle 330 ml from a European Swap edition. Served into a snifter, ABV 5.4%
Dark brown colour on the body, almost two fingers of thick, light brown head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass.

Taste also of smoke, citrus, grass, smoked ham, roasted malts on the finish. Mildly bitter.
Very thick body, nicely carbonated. Creamy, smooth and silky on the palate, the highlight of this beer and with only 5.4% alc, great.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 0.33l bottle @ RBNG 2014. Not to much smoke in the aroma on this to be honest. Having problems finding any smoke at all really. It has more of a hoppy bite on the nose really. Some soft roasted tones and a little bit of chocolate. Lots of flavor. It’s mild only in the mouth and small prickling on the below average carbonation level. Drying chocolate, some more smoke nuances in the taste compared to the aroma at least. Coffee sour minerallish finish. Not bad tasting at all actually. 15.02.2014
