3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown color with ruby reflections. One to two fingers beige very inconsistent head. In aroma notes of: dark bread, roasted cake, sweet matls, bit of cherry and plums. Rather sweet, quite pleasant. In taste it’s completely different. All this sweet notes are now gone. It’s much more roasted and toasted. Has a touch of coffee and bitter chocolate. It can really reminds of mocha. Nice bitter finish in the aftertaste. It’s slightly over carbonated and I was expecting just a bit more thick and full mouthfeel. In overall it’s a very pleasant Saturday afternoon beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark murky brown. About two fingers frothy, foamy head, like a mocha. Okay head retention, okay lacing.
Aroma is chocolatey, not so much coffee. I smell a lot of raisins and plums. I also smell, almonds? Quite nice.
Taste is lightly chocolate, light instant coffee flavor. I taste some of the dark fruits, not much. It has some roastiness from the malts. Some bitterness, but really pretty well balanced. It’s pretty smooth.
Mouthfeel is medium body. Perhaps too much carbonation. But it’s smooth, easy to drink. Quite dry.
Overall, it’s good. I like it. It’s worthy of another try. It’s a little disappointing in the mocha taste, not there. It’s a little different, but good.

P- Medium body, slightly thin texture, average carbonation, slightly watery finish.
O- An interesting porter no doubt. Assumed it would be loaded with chocolate and coffee. Chocolate, yes. Coffee, not so much. More of a dark fruit and caramel tone to it. Pretty good albeit a bit thin on the body.

Pours dark brown/black with big beige head. Aroma is very creamy, coffee, cocoa, caramel, some malts. Taste is also coffee-creamy, a bit milky, some sweetness and roasted bitterness. Quite watery and easy to drink. Little bit too balanced for me, but otherwise very nice easy drinkable coffee porter.
