4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaske: Sortbrun let uklar øl med et stort skumhoved. Dejlig duft af kaffe og kakao. Tyktflydende og ekstrem velnærende øl der kunne gives til folk der siger at guiness er et måltid. Lækker øl med masser af gods og kraft i.

Pours an opaque medium-dark brown with a caramelized color, cottony, fluffy head. Smoky, bready nose. The mouthfeel is chewy, has just the right amount of carbonation, and perfectly compliments the other components of the beer. The flavor is amazing. Truly. Pizza Port’s "patented" griddle grease smoke in spades. The flavor is so well balance with excellent depth. This is one of the best beers in this style I’ve ever had. Maybe THE best.

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. Do I just not have a taste for brown ales? I feel like it is a mix of types that just doesn't work. Maybe it was just the beers I had during this KBS event. Maybe it was because I tried then after KBS. So many questions.
