3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. It’s a very dark one, not black, but really, really dark brown, topped by a dense, finger-thick dark beige head that lasts. Chocolate and coffee dominates the aroma, some grassy hoppyness lurks in the background, but doesn’t really step forward. The flavor has a quite bitter coffee flavor, with chocolate, and a hoppy bitterness showing up towards the end. Full-bodied and a bit rough in the edges at first, smoothens out a bit after a while. Quite burnt in the end, with coffee and some chocolate. A nice porter, well worth a revisit. Seems they’re starting to know how to do it at Provianten. 120209

On tap @ the brewpub. Black body with a nice, creamy beige head. Aroma is relatively discreet, dark malt, light roasted with a hint of coffee. Flavor is light roasted malt, fruity, some liquorices and moderate bitterness. Medium body, quite high drink ability, moderate aftertaste. A nice and pleasant beer, but not outstanding in any way.
