4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, clear, reddish mahogany color with a big off-white head.
The aroma is sweet, of malt, caramel and chestnut honey with a good balance of mellow caramel and burnt sugar, giving the right bitterness.
The final has some burnt sugar and roasted nuts, It finishes with a roasty bitterness that lasts and lasts.
Sirupy oil body, complex and unique brew, moderate carbonate.
Great baltic porter beer.

Ebano scuro, poca schiuma poco persistente. Aroma di caramello, zucchero di canna e malti tostati. Al palato ingresso dolce mediamente carbonato. Corpo pieno, oleoso, con note caramellate, e tostate che l’avvicinano al caffè. Incredibilmente rinfrescante. Un ottima bevuta.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smell has roasted hops, head is dark and lasts quite long and leaves nice lacing to the glass. Taste is like a storm in autumn night. Taste is darkish roasted malts and other malts combination. This is the best dark beer I’ve tasted, from porter fan.
