3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very strong bitter roasted coffee taste. Very dry on finish. For me missing a touch of sweetness. The aroma was quite weak. Althought I like porters and stouts, this is not my kind of beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5.3%, zwart met minimale kraag, aroma van lichtgerookte mouten. De smaken zijn matig zoet, matig bitter, licht/waterige body, koffie, chocolade, gebrande mouten, mocca maar allemaal veel te licht. De afdronk is verder ook droog/dun en waterig. Dit bier valt mij erg tegen.

Dark brown/ruby colour, medium and stable head. Intensive aroma of coffee and roasty note. Taste is slightly sweet on the beginning and dry on the finish. Well balanced porter. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation. Well done!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark black colour with some head, but it stays for a while. Aroma is slightly sweet with some caramel notes. Taste is very light , more sweetness. Surprising lack of mocha. Ends in a slightly bitter and hoppy taste with the mocha finally coming out in the tail end of the aftertaste. Slightly disappointing, but still a quality brew.

Light mocha aroma and taste with bitter chocolate aftertaste. Light body and carbonation. Maybe a bad batch but nothing special or even worth remembering.
