2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2013 A porter with easy flavors. Coffee, chocolate, nuts with a roasted medium bitter dry finish. Good mellow balance of sweet, sour and bitter, making it quite easy going. Has a nice creaminess to it. But there is something going on I don’t really like. Some sort of acidity that annoys me and ruins the beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small, tanned head on top. Aroma has some faint licorice, malts and slight cheesy tartness over it. Funny. Flavour is quite bitter, spicey and definitely returns the molasses and licorice to the flavour. Dry finish, medium bodied and light carbonated.. Decent brew not the best porter ever...

(Bottle, In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 23 Feb 2013) Black colour with lasting, foamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice. Roasted, malty taste with notes of coffee, dark bread, cacao and a dry finish with a generous bitterness with hints of pine needles. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.
