Great nose, palate slightly on the thin side. Long aftertaste with a bitterness that sets in at the end. Ramses sure knows how to make beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black body with tanned, small but rocky head. Quite yeasty, Fresh cheese, coffee beans and a good amount of herbal hops. Pleasantly smooth, light alcoholic back. Full of flavour which, although straighforward, has a fine lingering yet fresh bitterness to it. Salty even. Mouthfeel is really good on this porter. Taste-wise it might beed to spicy fruityness. Nice brew, keep em coming! (33cl bottle, 3,25 EUR)

Bottle 33cl. Ink black with a huge creme coloured top. Little aroma, some malts and coffee. The taste is plain bitter and develops into a sharp, intense bitterness. Not like the typical IPA, but it reminds you of it. Quite lively for a porter.
